Dear Lord………(something to share)   Leave a comment

this was sent to me via an email, last week and because I have said a few choice words in the heat of the moment today while moving a classroom, I feel the need to express this message to myself as well as others.
I hope you enjoy it….(Keep in mind I didn’t write it and I don’t know who did)

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day, I thank You for my being able to see and hear this morning.  I’m blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.  Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to You.  I ask for Your forgiveness.

Please keep me safe from all danger and harm.  Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.  Let me make the best of each day to clear my head so that I can hear from You.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.  Let me continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil.  And when I sin, let me repent and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing and receive the forgiveness of God.

And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus’ example to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.  It’s the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.  I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to my heart.  Continue to use me to do Your will.

Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.  Keep me strong that I may help the weak.    Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.  I pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way.  I pray for those  who are misjudged and misunderstood.  I pray for those who don’t know You intimately.  I pray for those who will not read this and won’t share it with others.  I pray for those who don’t believe.  But I thank You that I believe.

I belive that God changes people and God changes things.  I pray for all my sisters and brothers.  For every family member in their households.  I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of dept and all of their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance or situation greater than God.  Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.  I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly…

this is my prayer,

in Jesus’ Name


I read this to myself at least once a day and I believe the good Lord hears me.
I hope you enjoy it.
