Prayer for Saturday 2/29

Ah, my Lord God of heaven and earth.  How I long to see you in all your glory.  I do not know how it is possible since you are larger than the cosmos with its two trillion galaxies and 100 thousand million stars in each one.  But then, you are the God of the impossible.  To behold the One who is Pure Love.  To be enraptured by my Creator.  Oh, to expand the wings of my adoring soul and fly to you.  This is my dream. This is my reason for being.

How can I stop thanking you, my Lord, for so many blessings?  A decent place to live, friends, sufficient food, reasonable health, a way to get around.  Restful evenings when I am enveloped in the arms of sleep and then sunshine that shoos the night away each smiling morning.  Mostly I thank you for materializing your Words in the form of Jesus so we could see you, hear you, touch you.  It was akin to me reducing myself to the form of a cockroach, so great was your sacrifice. I do not understand your love.  Open the eyes of my heart to know you better so I may express an all-consuming gratitude in my lowly way.

NAAMAN’S MAID is storybook #3 in the A CHILD’S BIBLE KIDS series.  She was just a little girl and whisked away by soldiers attacking her city, never to see her family again.  She could have become bitter and mean.  Instead, she could not help but continue to be the nice girl she had always been.  So, when her big ole master got a terrible, ugly disease called leprosy, she actually told him how God could heal him.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this……….  https://amzn.to/2TbbsvJ

LEAP DAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRAYER FOR FRIDAY 2/28

The stars praise you by night, the sun declares your glory by day. They sparkle with the romance of the ages in their own way. Even raging storms declare your power, butterflies declare your gentleness, giddy grass coming back to life each spring declares your mercy. You make, then you remake. You create and recreate. You raise up, cheer up, climb up, clean up. You love without boundaries. Your mercy is limitless. Your life without end.

I was discouraged the other day and dragged my family down with me. I could have excused myself and gone for a walk or into a room alone. I could have written them a love note asking for their patience while I rebuilt. I did not. I snapped at them because I felt so bad inside. I did not know how to change it. Do you think it would help to write some love notes to my family and put them away for the next time it happens? Can you help them forgive me?  Will you forgive me?

Thank you, Jesus, for all you did for me. I couldn’t do it. I still cannot be perfect. No matter how hard I try, I fail. So, you did it for me. You were perfect for me. Then you took the blame for my imperfections along with my punishment. The world hated you because you were perfect and we were not. Jesus, you did so much. I cannot begin to comprehend it all.  But I can spend eternity thanking you with my heart, my spirit, my soul.

BOY SAMUEL is #2 in the A CHILD’S BIBLE KIDS series.    When Samul was two, he went to the tabernacle tent where he got a new grandfather, high priest Eli.  Eli had little-boy priestly clothes made for Samuel and showed him lots of things real priests do.  But he never lost touch with his mama and daddy.  He was very smart and grew up to become the great judge of his nation.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this……….           https://amzn.to/388DDzk

Prayer for Thursday 2/27

My Creator, my very being praises you. My every breath, my every heartbeat, every blink of my eye praises you. The mighty mountains and roaring seas praise you. The eagles flying high and soaring on the wings of the wind. The fish great and small that thrive somewhere in the deep waters.  The unborn children still snug in their mother’s womb.  The stars dancing through galaxies around the orb of the universe. Touch and sound, motion and stillness praise you. On ethereal wings, all things praise you.

Lord, I was in a hurry and I went way over the speed limit. Most people would call such claim of guilt silly, but I feel it. I endangered others by going a speed the engineers consider dangerous.  I didn’t listen. I paid no heed. I should have left home early enough. I didn’t. I endangered people because I was not prepared enough and was running late. And the place I was rushing to was not worth anyone’s life. What if I had hit someone and caused them to be maimed the rest of their life?  Worse, what if I had killed someone. I am so sorry. But thank you for protecting everyone I drove near.

Ah, thank you, my Lord, for color. How delightful color is. People who have been blind all their lives do not comprehend color. That just reminds me of what is in store in your world. What will heaven be like? I cannot begin to imagine. And for sound. Thank you for the sound of music, whether it be on the lips of a chorus, a child, a songbird, or the wind dancing among the leaves of a tree. How much fun it must have been for you to create the world. A little dab of blue here, a little brushstroke of red there. The warble of a bird, the enchantment of a bubbling creek.  Teach my eyes to see and my ears to hear it all. I love and worship you.

MIRIAM is storybook #1 in A CHILD’S BIBLE KIDS series.  Miriam was big sister to  Aaron and had to watch him and other slave children when she and her parents went to work every day to make bricks.  When her mother gave birth to little brother, Moses, she had to hide him in a basket when the family went to work. But his cries became stronger as he grew, so her father made excuses to the taskmaster why his daughter had to stay home each day.  Then one day her father lined the basket with pitch.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this………. https://amzn.to/2I1nQbi

Prayer for Wednesday 2/26

(My decision is that I will include prayers of repentance sometimes.)

 

Jehovah, you love me so. You made me and loved me even before I came into being. And when I lost my innocence with my first sin as they did in Eden, you loved me still.  You only walk away from me when I reject you over and over. Even then you turn and follow me around begging me to come back to you where I am safe from Satan. When I shun you, you weep in agony.  Finally, I turn around and let you embrace me and we are one again. Then I sin again and run from you, and you run after me once again in tears, once again saying, “Return to my arms”. Such love. Over and over through my life this happens. You never give up on me. Your love is so amazing. It is greater than the unending cosmos. It is greater than my heart. I bow before you, so unworthy.

I bragged about something yesterday. Why do I do that? Help me forget myself and enter the hearts and lives of others. Help me bury my ego and let you live in me.

Thank you for Jesus who is the reason for my life here. Jesus, you did so much for me. More than I can ever understand. Why did you? I am sinful. I will tell others what you did in such a way that they realize all you suffered was for them too.  In every way I know how, I will tell others because of my gratitude. How can I thank you enough for saving my soul from Satan and opening the door to heaven for me? I will try to live a life of gratitude so that, in some way, you will know the depths of the happiness you bring to me.

GENEALOGY: HOW TO CLIMB YOUR FAMILY TREE WITHOUT FALLING OUT ~ COLONIAL TO MEDIEVAL.  I think tracing your family provides a sense of lifetimes and what our ancestors did with theirs. It also provides a sense of brevity by recording born, married, died.  This book tells how to find ship passenger lists, land grants, war records.  Also, our language and alphabet of four hundred years ago were so different, we would not be able to understand it or read it without learning the changes.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this……….  https://amzn.to/2wPzlAa

Prayer for Tuesday 2/25

I praise you, God of creation and God of my heart. How can you have such power over the workings of the universe? It has two trillion galaxies in it and each galaxy has 100 thousand million stars in it.  Well, I do know the answer to that. You made it all.  But it is a temporary universe. You will never dissolve it until it has served its purpose for mankind. Your purposes are beyond comprehension. Your purposes are in mysterious shadows beyond my understanding.  I know someday you will pull aside the veil of mystery and I will see your purposes in all their glory.

Thank you, Jesus, for all you did for me. You did not have to leave the safety of your world, heaven. But you are Love. You would have no longer been Love had you stayed.  You could not bear Satan destroying my soul even though I and everyone else had sinned against you and continue to. They say love is what makes the world go ‘round. Some are arrogant and exclaim, “Stop the world and let me get off.”  You, Lord God, humbled yourself and said, “World, I am coming to you.” You humbled yourself and became like me to show me the way home. I fall at your wounded feet and thank you over and over.

I added a third option to the poll

  Dear Friends:        

          As an experiment after sending out inspirational thoughts daily for ten years, I thought I would try sending you daily prayers of praise and thanksgiving to get your day off to a positive start. 

          As a further experiment, I included a prayer of repentance today.

          What I did to create them was to go through the several lists of sins in the New Testament.  (All these prayers are from my book 365 SILVER-WINGED PRAYERS: YOUR SPIRIT TO GOD’S in my series “Touching God”.)

          In these daily public posts, I did not want prayers of repentance to weigh you down.  I do not want to add to the burdens you already have.

          This poll requires only a checkmark in one of the options.  I will not see your name or email.  It is completely ANONYMOUS.

Prayer for Monday

(I don’t normally include my prayers of repentance, but today I am.)

The snowflakes outside my window praise you with all their intricacies and surprises. The icicles praise you as they hang on upside down and grow longer with each drip, drip, drip. The scampering squirrels and fluttering little birds praise you as they brave the cold outside and look in my direction every once in a while as though to say, “Come on out. The winter’s fine”. And, oh how the stars take on a special sparkle and effervescence in the wintertime when so much of the earth is asleep. It is as though they are saying, “Go ahead, world, and sleep. I’ll be here watching over you.” You are in everything because you made everything. How exciting it must have been for you those days of creation.

There are people in this world who seem to have no conscience. They had just as soon kill a person as to step on an ant.  I am afraid of people like that and do not want to be around them. Even though they are overtly doing the work of Satan, I must cover them with prayer. I don’t do it. I don’t pray for my enemies or the enemies of the world. Grab them, God, and stab them in the heart so the hardness will leave and they can catch a glimpse of you.

Thank you for little babies. They remind me of my helplessness to make food grow and my dependence on you. Thank you for little toddlers who patter around discovering their world and giggling in delight. Thank you for adults who are mentally still like children. They remind me of innocence in an adult body and how I should be more like them. As I look around this world, I see blessings you give me in every corner of the universe. And, oh how they make me want to worship you.

DANIEL is storybook #10 in the series A CHILD’S BIBLE HEROES.  Daniel got along with everyone, even enemy kings.  He arrived in Babylon as a slave and rose to what we today would call prime minister, second only to the emperor.  He did not lie, cheat, or steal to become that popular.  He stood up for right when no one else did. People respected him for that.  THINK & DO at the end of each chapter.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this……….  https://amzn.to/2VrTab9

Prayer for Sunday

Ah, my amazing God, you decorate eternity with your presence. When you shout, the cosmos quivers. Satan did not have a chance against you.  Even when Satan planned to kill the souls of all mankind, you stepped in and would not let him. You ransomed us from him with that terrible price he demanded. You are so powerful. Satan keeps killing, you keep creating. Satan keeps convincing us to sin and you keep forgiving. Satan brings darkness into our lives, you bring sunshine into our souls. You are omnipotent beyond understanding. You are Love and will never give up the fight to keep Satan away from us. I cannot help but worship you, the Delight of my soul.

Jesus, my sins are so many. I do the same things over and over. I am trying to overcome them. I feel the guilt, but I also feel your everlasting forgiveness.  Over and over you forgive. Such love. Such love. How can you? You never tire of forgiving. How can I thank you enough? Each page of your Word astounds me. Within those pages, you reveal everything about yourself ~ your deepest longings for mankind, your disappointments, your feelings of betrayal, your shouts of joy. It’s all in there ~ as much as my finite mind can grasp. No guessing. Oh, and thank you for color. Color is so delightful! When Spring returns, all the colors will arise in greeting.

JONAH is #9 in A CHILD’S BIBLE HEROES series of Bible stories.  Yes, he ran away on a ship when God told him to go to his people’s enemies and tell them to repent.  But even while on the ship, he preached to the sailors and told them about the one true God, then sacrificed his life to save theirs.  After three deadly days in a fish, he was vomited out on land.  And when he finally went to the enemy, he found the new king was only 14 years old and still humble (true fact).  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this………. https://amzn.to/2PgTkxM
