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

We Feel the Same

Dear Jesus,

It is amazing how much we as humans can take.

This world is so full of heartache, pain, evil and so much negativity, yet there are souls that endure and some how survive.

I think this is a side to humans that you created Lord. A beautiful side. To remain strong and resilient in the face of adversity.

To grow and do positive things while experiencing great pain.

You said that there is nothing that we will experience that many others have not experienced. Although different scenarios, we feel the same.

But you also said that even though this is, you would help us get through these things , so that we can endure and bear them.

Thank you for being that side of us Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

Honour Each Other

Dear Jesus,

Sometimes I struggle to navigate wisely through relationships. Friendships, associateships, love relationships, familial relationships you name it.

Lord I need your advice and guidance every day.

I have a special prayer for a special kind of relationship. The love relationship between a man and and a woman.

Lord you have so much to say about this kind of relationship. Special principles that tell us how to communicate with our significant others and how to manage our strong emotions.

You said that we are to honour each other and talk softly to each other. Love each other, never forgetting to treat each other how we would like to be treated.

This is not very easy with so many differences at play.

Encourage us to keep learning and striving to love.

In your Name,

Amen

 

A Pure Appreciation

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for my family. You have shown to me how important family is over the years.

I look back and see how I have treated my family in times when I wasn’t in my right mind.

But these people have never left my side, they are still here and with that I have the opportunity to enjoy better days with them and look at them with a new appreciation. A pure appreciation.

Thank you for the people you bring into our lives who are family to us.

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

 

So Kind & So Encouraging

Dear Jesus,

I am fed up. Frustrated. Hurt. Ashamed. Embarrassed. Scared. Worried

I feel everything. These are one of those days that I hate.

I can’t get my head around or get my mind away from what is bothering me so much.

Lord please help me to be strong and hopeful. Give me a little bit of encouragement because if I have ever needed it, it is now.

Thank you for strengthening me over the years. I dont know how I have been able to manage and make it through.

You said that in my weaknesses it is then where your grace and kindness is enough for me to carry on.

I can say that you have helped me Lord. you have been so kind and so encouraging towards me and I thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

In Your Company

Dear Jesus,

My heart is heavy again and in absolute shock at what this society is coming to.

Lord I am asking you to comfort those families who have lost friends and family in the terror events that unfolded in London.

We are truly living in amazing times where evil is increasing more and more.

You said that these things would happen as we approached the end of this world and your return.

If this is happening now I cant imagine what will be for the future. Things are looking more and more dark.

But Lord, I am so thankful that you are the same and constant and your light shines ever more brighter the darker this world gets.

We can trust you and rest assured that we are safe as long as we stay in your company.

In your Name,

Amen
