Good morning, friends! Are you looking forward to another day that the Lord has made? I sure am. It’s freezing though, and this girl’s body is not built for these arctic blasts that threaten to take me on a wild ride. Thank God for down coats and his word to keep me anchored.
This week my prayer for all of you is that you remember to reach for God’s hand and his word to anchor you in the storms of your life. He is your divine life preserver, and only he is able to calm the rough seas. Though we sometimes feel anxious or downright scared, just one word from him can settle the shaking, quell your fears, and place your feet on solid ground if you would merely surrender everything to him.
Lord God, thank you for loving me like no one else can. I stumble; I slip; I slide; I fall, and there you are in the midst of it all ready to forgive me — knowing I’ll repeat this cycle again and again. I’m grateful that you never give me what I truly deserve; instead, you teach me to forgive as you’ve forgiven me, and you draw me closer still.
God, I ask you to make your presence known today in the lives of everyone reading this prayer. Whether it be a gentle whisper or a loud gong, assure them that you are near — poised to pick up any baggage that they lay at your feet. Lord, bless them with your peace and keep them in your tender care. Beckon them to rest in your safety. And when they cry out in agony from suffering that seems too long, Father, hold them in your bosom and comfort them as only our Abba Father can. We love you and will continue to seek you and cleave to you as the branches to the vine. Apart from you, we are nothing, but in the Potter’s hands we are made new. Amen.
Before you leave today, take a little time to enjoy my Music Monday selection from Big Daddy Weave entitled “Hold Me Jesus.”
Beautiful prayer, Michelle, thank you!!
Your words and music seem to always find ways to usher us into His presence. Thanks for being the vessel He allowed to do so. Happy Monday, may you have a week filled with joy and peace.
Hey sis! Thanks for the kind word. I’m so grateful that the Holy Spirit speaks through me. I can’t take credit for anything other than typing and Googling. 😀 I’m so amazed that he allows a sinner like me to minister to all of you.
I so appreciate you saying a prayer for those of us who need it. I slip every single day & God lifts me back up every single time. I haven’t been the best at thanking Him each day, but not a day goes by where I don’t appreciate the fact I’ve only made it this far because of Him.
God is amazing! Even when we forget to say thank you, he knows you love him and need him.
Aw man! We love this song. Thank you so much for praying for your readers – it really does make a difference. Have a great day and stay warm!
You’re welcome! It’s so important for us to pray for each other. Thankfully, I was warm. 🙂
Thank you so much for this prayer, I really needed it! It’s so good to join with other believers to glorify the goodness of God! Have an amazing day!
You’re welcome, Esmeralda! I’m always encouraged when I meet other believers in the blogosphere who aren’t ashamed to say they love the Lord. I hope your week has been great so far. 😀
This is a beautiful prayer sis! Thank you for that!
Anytime, Sis! Take care. 😀
Have blessed day and thank you so much for this post
I’m going to Minnesota this weekend and I am not looking forward to the freezing temperatures. I agree he is a life saver, when you feel like you are drowning. Thanks for the prayer this morning.
Wear lots of layers and a hat. My fur-lined trapper hat has been my saving grace this winter. Safe travels! 😀
Thank you for including us in this prayer. Have a great day! And bundle up!
You’re welcome, Donna. We’re finally going to get a reprieve from the cold tomorrow and make it above freezing. 😀
Thanks, Donna. 🙂 I hope it’s warm where you are.
I came across your blog and it is such a beautiful testament. May the Lord bless you and keep you with a praying spirit.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read and to comment. May blessings abound in your life as well, Shelia. 🙂
Jesus is always the ultimate provider. Sometime we need a reminder so thank for this post as I plan to constantly reach him!
Jehovah Jireh…my provider! Have a blessed day, Kiwi! 🙂
