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

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

 

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

 

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

What Belongs to You

Dear Jesus,

It has been a long while since we spoke. It has been a long while since we sat down and talked to each other about life.

I am sorry I have neglected you for so long and I see in such a short time how that can impact so many things.

I have watched myself become more impatient, less loving, angry, complain, tempted and sad.

I am ready to give back to you what belongs to you and that is my time and my heart.

Forgive me and help me Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

Fixed on You

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer for my aunt.

She is going through a difficult time atm. 

She is worried about alot of things. Give her some peace at this time. Keep her mind fixed on how much of a loving and caring father you are.

I will be visiting her very soon. I am looking forward to seeing her.

Help me to be a source of support to her. Help me forget about the stresses of my own life to be a caring friend to her and enjoy the time spent with her.

In your Name,

Amen
