VOD 06/19/09: Take Care, In Prayer.
1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (KJV)
God intervenes in the affairs of men by invitation only. Yes, He knows your needs before you ask, but you’ve got to ask. Why? Because by asking of Him you are acknowledging that He exists and that you trust His judgement in answering your prayers. The answers won’t always be what you want to hear but they will be for your benefit. As long as you go to Him with genuine, earnest sincerity, He will respond. Just be prepared to handle the answer. Choose your desires carefully; put voice to them with even more care.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings. Dear Lord, when we come to You in prayer, let us do so with humility and sincerity. When we ask of You, let our words not be frivolous but with conviction, asking not for trivial desires but wants of substance. Help us to recognize Your answers. Open our hearts and minds to the possibilities Your answers provide, and be satisfied to know that they are for our best.
We lift our prayers up to You, our Lord and our Savior…Amen.
Good morning one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and pleasant day and weekend.
May God Bless,
