A Little Child

Dear Jesus,

Life is full of small and big changes. Changes that often threaten my comfort zone and what I have come to know and understand.

Lord when you were here you taught people many new things, things that challenged what they believed and what they stood for.

They were surprised that God would allow the things that you preached and taught.

Some even turned their backs on you thinking you were a worker of evil.

But Lord you also said that in order for us to recieve the teachings that you taught we would have to become like little children. Unlearned, excited and ready to be moulded and taught.

Blessed are those who recieved your teachings. I want to be like a little child 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

 

Day to Day

Dear Jesus,

Its hard to navigate wisely and safely throug the working world without getting burnt in some way.

The pressures of meeting expectations. Carrying a workload. Getting along with work colleagues. Performance. Betrayal. Trust. Decisions.

All these and many more play out so vividly in the working world.

Lord I do not want to be influenced but I want to be an influence. I want to keep my dignitiy above all things and please you only.

Help me through my day to day.

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

 

Strengthen Me

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for helping me make throug this week. I dont know how I have made it.

I feel like I am at the point of giving up. I am certain that whatever is keeping me going is something beyond myself.

The next few weeks are going to be difficult and hard Lord. I am going to feel like giving up and throwing in the towel.

But just like you strengthened me to make it through is the same way you will strengthen me to make it through the rest.

Encourage others in the same way you have for me Lord. And help me to cultivate a taste for you.

In your Name,

Amen

Your word Inspires many

Dear Jesus,

I see everyday how the world is becoming more and more evil just by the way the children in this world behave.

Is this what will be? Children growing up to be heartless, impulsive, selfish and uncaring.

It makes me so sad and scared for what will come.

But Lord at the same time I am greatful that you have provided us with guidelines and instructions on how to live our lives.

And these you have shared with us so we can share them and teach them to our own children.

After all I don’t feel so hopeless because your word insires many for now and always.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Plentiful & Rich

Dear Jesus,

I have a special prayer for some very important people in my life.

My mother and my father. You gave some  very important instructions about the mother father relationship.

You also demonstrated that when you were here. You said how important it is to honour them and respect them so that our days would be long, plentiful and rich.

How simple an instruction but yet how vital it is for life.

Lord I know this to be true because I have seen famlies torn apart because of this simple instruction not being obeyed.

Lord help us in this.

In your Name,

Amen
