Heavenly Things

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the opportunities you put in our paths to earn an honest living.

I am greatful for the the things I have because they are things that I have attained because of you.

But at the same time I realise that these things are not eternal, they are not matters of the heart and soul. They are unimportant.

You said that we should focus on you. Dont worry about all those other things, they will be taken care of.

You have instructed us to take care and attend to the things that are important. Heavenly things.

In your Name,

Amen

The Day or The Hour

Dear Jesus,

Yet another reason to be sad Lord.

My heart goes out to the people who lost loved ones and whose lives have been lost this week in the Grenfell Tower Fire

Why so much heartache? Why so much burden Lord? This is almost too much to bear.

Lord you see what is going on. I wonder how you feel about all of this. Lord you know the reasons behind everything.

At this time many are looking for answers. Many are trying to find an explanation to this. Many are angry and confused and hurt.

And although these things may remain a mystery for a while. Lord you are still God. You still sit upon your throne.

Nothing has changed about you and you still desire the best for us all. You love us dearly and want us to be saved. You would do anything to save us.

Lord help us to lean on you and devote ourselves to you.

Because none of us know the day or the hour where it could be the end.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Take Us There

Dear Jesus,

It was a tough week so far. But it has also been a weekend of peace, family time and decisions.

Sometimes I feel as though time is moving so slow and there is nothing to look forward to.

But Lord you have reassured us that we should not let our hearts be troubled because you are preparing a place for us and you are coming back to take us there.

That is certainly something to look forward to.

In the meantime encourage and inspiire us to enjoy the life that you have blessed us with now and guide us on how we should spend our time.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Bring Us Home

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer right now. I think it is the right time.

My heart goes out to the people caught up in the terror attack in Manchester. There families and friends.

Lord I dont understand why people would go to such lengths to prove a point. Lengths that affect lives and destroy families.

But Lord, you know all, and you see all and you understand everything. You said that all these things would happen and that we should not be alarmed.

Evil and hatred for each other would increase. And with this you are preparing to come back and take us back home. Lord I know that your heart is eager to bring us home.

I pray that in the meantime, keep us strong and committed to you.

In your Name,

Amen

 

War & Terror

Dear Jesus,

I am bewildered and at a loss at what is going on in the world right now.

It feels so surreal and shocking that these things are happening.

In a place where peace and tolerance is the norm. War and terror is now becoming more serious.

But Lord, even though these things are happening you said that we shouldn’t be surprised. 

And that these things are meant to happen so that you can come back.

In your Name,

Amen
