Changing Lives for Jesus, One Box at a Time!

An Emailed Prayer April 8, 2009

Filed under: News & Announcements — Chandra Martin, LOBC Angel Food Coordinator @ 10:48 PM

Below is a prayer I received by email today, the original author is unknown.  I’m not a big fan of “forward this email or else” kind of emails, but this one was different.  There was no mention of anything bad happening if I didn’t forward the email.  However, that got me thinking.  If I don’t pass this prayer along, someone may not have the strength to make through one more day.  It’s my responsibility as a Christian to reach out and touch others.  I prayed this prayer today, I hope you will, too:

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see
and to 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 now 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 and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Please broaden my mind
that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper
over things I have no control over.
And give me 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 that are lost
and can’t find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged
and misunderstood
I pray for those who
don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those that will delete this
without sharing it with others
I pray for those that don’t believe.

But I thank You that I believe
that God changes people and
God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
For each and every family member
in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy
in their homes; that they are out of debt
and all 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 it
in Jesus’ name.  Amen!
