Verse of the Day
God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. Romans 5:20 (NLT)
in heaven Dearest Abba Yahweh, I am so humbled that You call me friend. I am honored to be connected with You and invite You to share Your heart with me. I surrender all that I am to You. Father, today I come into agreement with You. I choose to align my words, my thoughts and my actions with Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and light to my path. I will hide Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.
Father, forgive me for taking Your love and faithfulness for granted. Show me the wonders of Your creation. Let me take nothing for granted. Indeed, Lord, make all things new in my eyes. Thank You for Your unfailing love and grace toward me. Holy Spirit, You know that I struggle with lust and need Your help. Renew my thoughts and attitudes so I can live the way you want me to. Help me continue to say “no” and put away those things that war against me. Help our family, dear Lord, not to compromise on what we believe. May our faith in You be strong in every situation we face in life. May others see in us a consistency that honors Your name.
Almighty Lord, it is rather unsettling, not to mention wonderful, to think that one day you will come to dwell in your Holy City on earth. When we step back and think about creation, we remember that you made all things good, indeed, very good. Yet we often tend to minimize the value of life in this world as we maximize the value of life in the world to come. Forgive us, Lord, for neglecting that which matters so much to you. Help us, we pray, to see this world as you see it, to value it as you value it, to love it as you love it. May we live each day, in every part of life, in a way that honors what you honor. May we contribute to the goodness of this world, even though we realize that one day you will make all things new. May our lives make a difference for you each and every day. In the marvelous name of our savior and Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen

Prayer Quote of the day
Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.
