Oh how I love the name!

So this is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy. We pray that your kingdom will come— that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven. Give us the food we need for today. Forgive our sins, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. Don’t let us be tempted, but save us from the Evil One.’ (Matthew 6:9-13 ERV)

There is joy in this prayer, it tells us to keep God Holy, let his perfect will be done in our lives, forgive everyone who hurt us, to trust That God will make sure our needs are met and that he will keep the devil off our backs.. I could shout right now. How easy is it to forget that a simple prayer is all we need to feel relieved from the burdens of our lives? Or that just saying the name Jesus in our mind can calm the stormy seas of our thoughts? Or that if we whisper in our spirit that God can hear our deepest fears and he will protect us? Oh how I love the name Jesus, it is the sweetest name I know.. Y’all I’m praising him cause I still have breathe in my body..hallelujah

It really is about Love!

In our prayers we always thank God for you. He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank him because we have heard about the faith you have in Christ Jesus and the love you have for all of God’s people. Your faith and love continue because you know what is waiting for you in heaven—the hope you have had since you first heard the true message, the Good News that was told to you. Throughout the world, this Good News is bringing blessings and is spreading. And that’s what has been happening among you since the first time you heard it and understood the truth about God’s grace. (Colossians 1:3-6 ERV)

Good morning my sisters and brothers in Christ, this message was written hundreds of years ago yet it is still relevant today. How great is our God that he has written a living word that keeps us down through the ages. I
Implore you to keep the faith, stay the course and trust in what God told you. Keep loving The Lord and his people; It really is about the love. Be kind to one another in your thoughts and your intentions. Always assume the best intentions no matter what it looks like because it’s easy to misunderstand each other. We are so literal in our expectations even when we are lax in our own ways. I guess I’m just saying that you know what it’s like to be misunderstood so be understanding, cause you reap what you sow. Keep being the living word, when you are faced with trouble, trust God and then tell somebody how he brought you out, they need to hear how great is our God so they can stay encouraged.

I love you, I do I do! To God be the glory.

Dear father I have a short prayer this morning, I just pray that you keep us in perfect peace this day so we stay out of your way as you work all these things out for our good. in Jesus name, Amen.

Who do you call?

Who do you call when your lonely, hurt, scared, or in need?

The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. The Spirit that we received is not a spirit that makes us slaves again and causes us to fear. The Spirit that we have makes us God’s chosen children. And with that Spirit we cry out, “ Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:14, 15 ERV)

Abba Father, I come to you this morning seeking your face, asking for your peace and unspeakable joy. I ask that your spirit guide me through the path you have laid for me, fully understanding that the enemy may have planted land mines along the way, he may have planted disappointments along the way, he may have planted hurt and despair but your spirit is with me and nothing is impossible. I love you Lord and I trust that you know the plans you have for me and if you guide me I won’t fall into the traps set by the enemy but I will be rewarded with the perfect gifts you have set aside for me. I know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and you want what’s best for me. I willfully submit to the process and will praise you through it all. Hallelujah in Jesus name, Amen.

IPRAY-Contentment

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”(Philippians 4:11)

We are in times of I want this and I want that. And the funny thing is we want everything right NOW. I know im guilty. In my mind right now im trying to figure out how to get a Range Rover but I barely Keep the car clean that I have now. How can we keep asking God to bless us with more money, bigger houses, better this and better that when we not good stewards over the stuff he already gave us. We have to learn to be content in any and every situation. Life is not about ALL the STUFF you can get.(not saying your not suppose to have nice things) but ask yourself how are any of those things helping you bring others to christ? ITS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU!!! I had to learn that the hard way. God created us for a purpose on purpose and its not to be the baddest whatever.. So lets be purposeful in all things..

Lord,

I come to you on this day asking that you deplete whomever may be reading this of their selfishness. I ask that you allow them to see that you created them for a reason. That you have great plans for their life. That you love them more than anyone on this earth can. Father God I ask that guide them in the right direction. Father help us all to understand that we dont need material things to be whole. Father God help us to understand that nothing on the outside will allow us into the kingdom. Help us to have the patience of Job to wait for you and your direction. Help us to have a heart of love and giving. Help us to trust you as Abraham did. Father on this day we surrender all to you. Father we love you and adore you. Father God please forgive us for all the sins that we have committed knowingly and unknowingly. In Jesus mighty name we pray and ask it all… AMEN

IPRAY-SHIFT

“But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.” (2 Timothy 4:5)

Seem like the second you decide to get your life together all the people who you thought would be there to support you left. But that’s ok because God had not intention on those people going with you. When I stopped drinking and partying I thought my phone was cut off because the thing did not ring, vibrate or nothing. I felt alone and thought that I was making the wrong decision. Quickly God start sending me people to help on my new journey. Was I nervous? Heck yeah I knew nothing, we talking about a girl who use to Fast for the lord and be getting drunk with my friends at the same time. How crazy was I? Any who im only saying this to say that God has better for you, he want you to want him the way he want you. You may have to let some relationships GO, you may even have to stop going some places. Its time out for the GOD knows my heart saying, because he do and its saying “im gone do what I want to do”

Dear Father,

I come to you this day saying thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for loving me when I didn’t have the strength to love myself. Father on this day I ask that you give the person that is reading this the strength to SHIFT, Father remove the weakness that’s allowing them to stay in their comfort zone. Father send them people to help them during their transition. Father send them people who will love them and pray for them. Father protect them from hate and abuse. Father God I ask that you guide them into the right direction. Father if they are living in darkness I ask that you send them someone to be the light that they need to get through. Father whomever is reading this I ask that you give them the desires of their heart. I ask that you bless them so that they are able to bless someone else. In Jesus mighty name I pray and ask it all. AMEN

IPRAY-Somewhere between Grace and Mercy

16But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, for the compassion of the LORD was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city….26But his wife, from behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:16,26)

It’s so funny because we have all heard the story of Lots wife numerous times and im sure MOST have thought she was crazy or how dumb of her to look back after they told her not too. But after hearing Rev. Angela Hood at my church Preach on this it totally changed by crazy thoughts to compassion. To sum it up maybe she looked back to take one last look at the life that she would no longer have anymore and to think over what was to come. Now fast forward to your life… How many of us look back thinking “WHAT IF” or “MAYBE IF I JUST” or “WHAT IF I DID IT LIKE THIS” but now your pillar of salt is depression, emptiness, loneliness etc. The past is the past. GOd has so many wonderful things planned for your present and future just grab his hand TRUST HIM and DONT LOOK BACK!!!!!!

 

Dear Father on this day I come to you begging that you remove the spirit of fear from whomever may be reading this. Father I ask that you give them the tools needed to keep going in the right direction. I ask that you move all obstacles out their way and make a smooth path for them. Father remove doubt from them, allow them to understand that they are daughters and sons to the King. Allow them to understand they have the access to the kingdom through your son Jesus Christ. Father create in them a clean and pure heart O God. Allow them to love as Jesus love. Remove any Hate from them father. Father God I ask that whomever is reading this is walking in his/her purpose. Father I declare and decree that whomever is reading this will be prosperous, they will not lack and they shall not suffer. Father I ask that whomever is reading this will be courageous and bold about  spreading the word of Jesus. Father God I ask that you be with them each and every step of the way. Father God wrap your arms around them and protect them from harm in jesus might name….AMEN

IPRAY-Idols

They worshiped their idols, which led to their downfall.(psalms 106:36)

 

How often do we have problems and the first place we run is to Social Media, call our friends or family members. How often do we look at women/Men figures on TV and wish that the life they are portraying was our own. Or look at our friends and say dang Why she? or Why he? When the MAIN question we should be asking is Lord what plan do you have for MY LIFE? What direction do you want me to go in? Who should I help today? How can I use up every gift that you have given me? We need to start focusing more on our own life and not everbody else. So as of today no more swerving into other people lanes. God will bless you in the lane that he created for YOU!!!

 

Dear Lord,

I come to you on this day thanking you for your son Jesus Christ. Thank you for your grace and mercy towards a sinful person such as myself. Father I thank you for waking me up and allowing me to see another day. I thank you for family. And above all things I thank you for Love. Father so many people lack real Love and I ask on this day father God that whomever is reading this that you shower down agape love on them. I ask that you remove every heavy burden from their heart. Father I ask that if they worship anything other than you that it be removed from their life. Father help to take their life in the right direction. Show them that you are the answer to every question that they may have. Father you have given us the authority on this earth to speak things into existent. So Father I ask that whomever is reading this is blessed beyond belief. Father I speak life into every dead situation that they may be going through in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Father God I love you and adore you and will continue to lift your name on high in any and every situation. AMEN
