Prayer for Overflow

Lord, I come to you today in a time of need,
I am asking that you listen to my heart, look into my soul. Forgive me of my sins and fill any void that may need feeling. Heal any wound that may need healing.
Lord, I understand that I am nothing without you and by your grace, I am here today.

For that, I thank you.
Lord, I am asking for an overflow within my household, within my finances, within my heart, and within my health. May you take your hand and bless these areas.
Lord, it is in your word that I am the head and not the tail.

I am the lender and not the borrower.
Lord, I am asking that your will be done with me,

Lord, take your mighty hand and bless my shortcomings.
I thank you for who you are. I thank you for the love and grace you pour over my life. Lord, I thank you and I love you. I praise your holy name.

-Amen

I woke up this morning feeling lacking and I knew that this wasn’t the will of the Lord. I know that the Lord has so much for his children but sometimes we have to ask. We must not be afraid to call on the Lord and seek help. Prayer works. ❤

Luke 6:38

Give,  and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For the same measure that mete with it shall be measured to you again.

Guilty Consious or God’s Words

The voice in my head repeated over and over,”You were wrong.” No matter how many times I tried to justify my actions the voice never left.  The voice was settling yet strong but non-changing. I wanted to control that voice so badly and let it know that I make the rules! Like, wait just let me think the way I choose…don’t intervene; you may change something that I am not ready to change. The voice weighed so heavy on me that I went to the extent of asking other people could I be wrong. Longing for other viewpoints that could possibly soothe the voice in my head. It didn’t matter how many confirmations that I was received saying that I was right, the voice still said I was wrong.  I asked everyone but my Savior! Not because I didn’t care but because I could recognize his voice.

The truth is that when you walk with God he demands a change in your behavior. When you become saved the Lord is now with you and the Holy Spirit lives within you. He will not let you get away with the things that you use to be okay with because you are a representation of him.

So, the voice that weighted heavy on conscious wasn’t my own but the voice of God. I knew it but didn’t want to accept it. I didn’t want to accept it because it requires a reaction; a reaction that I felt like I wasn’t ready for. For I am of flesh so nothing inside of me wants to admit when I am wrong.  My friends and family are of flesh so there is no way for them to carry the wisdom of the Lord. But because I am his child he has no problem of addressing my wrongdoing and directing me to the right path.

What a wonderful father we serve that can direct his children in the ways of the Lord….

For this, I give him Praise. ❤

Romans 2:20

A corrector of the foolish, teach of the immature, having in the Law of embodiment of knowledge and of the truth,

 

Prayer For Courage

Lord, I come to you today and ask for you to see my heart. See my troubles and my obstacles and bring forth clarity. Lord, I am not asking for you to remove my obstacles because I know that you have a mission over my life. But Lord I am asking for strength and courage to overcome them, for I know that without you there is nothing that I can do. But through you all things are possible. For that, I give you praise. Even when my battles seem difficult through you they are fragile. For that, I give you the thanks and the glory in advance. What a powerful Lord you are. Lord, I have faith that you will deliver and that our battles are already won. Lord, I will raise my head high because I know that you are listening to my prayers. Lord strengthen me, build me, grow me until the child of God that I know that I am. Have grace of my life and my children’s life and their children to come.
In the Lord’s name, we praise…

-Amen

 

Good Afternoon, Sometimes we just need a prayer for courage to get through whatever it is that we are going through. The Lord has given us the strength and through him all things are possible. ❤

Philippians 4:13

I  can do all things through Christ who strengths me.

 

Sorry, I Can’t Fight Your Demons!

You always hear that past relationships teach you something new about yourself. I completely agree. In my past relationships, I learned that I cannot fight other people demons and for that reason, I will not try!  We get so involved in helping people that sometimes don’t want to help themselves. These people will hand you their problems and tribulations and look for you as a source of truth and that’s wrong.

I could have died in the pursuit of making someone else’s life convenient. 

In the relationship, I worked day in and day out to make sure that person had a place to call home. I was drained mentally and physically. I took the abuse that I didn’t deserve in hopes that I could change that person. I didn’t know that wasn’t my task. I put my own needs on the backburner because I thought that we were a team. In all actuality, I was working alone.

How did someone else’s battle become my own?

Now, I am strong enough to know that I am not strong enough to fight someone else’s demons. I am wise enough to know that if the Lord is fighting my battles who am I try to take on someone else’s? Yes, we like to be helpful. Yes, some people deserve a friend to vent to. Yes, I will pray for you! However, a line has to be drawn.  And there is nothing wrong with you drawing that line.

Exodus 15:3

The Lord is a warrior; The LORD is his name.

Prayer Time

A Prayer For Healing 

Lord, I come to you today and first ask you for the forgiveness of our sins. Lord build us, grow us into the Princes and Princesses of your Kingdom. Lord, I ask that you step inside our soul, step inside our body,  and step inside our spirit father. Heal us of our wrongdoing. Heal us from our fleshly desires. Heal us spiritally and physically Lord. Heal our heart from heartache. Heal our spirit from damnation. Heal our body from sickness father. Let no sickness, disease, nor wound take ownership of our body Lord. For you said, Lord, that if we worship you, you will bless our food and water. You will take away the sickness amoung us. (Exodus 23:15). Lord we have faith in your words. We know nothing is too big or too small for you. For that we magnify your name, we worship you. Lord we thank you for everything that you have done and that you contiue to do in our lives. We give you the glory and worship.

-Amen

Hello! I first would like to take the time out and apologize to anyone coming to my blog and not seeing a post lately. I have recently started back school and this fundamental thing call balance may have slipped from my hands. Nevertheless, God has restored me. Today, will not be like many of my blogs. Today I want to send a prayer to anyone who is in the need of healing. I woke up not feeling my best and as I pray for myself I wanted to pray for you as well. ❤

Psalm 30:2

Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.

Motives

Who and what is God to you? What does he represent in your life? I had to ask myself this question because I recently questioned my prayers. Many times we pray to God and wonder will he honor our prayer request or if he is even listening. In my mind, I wondered if my prayer request seemed shallow, superficial, or even selfish. For I know that if my prayer request exemplified any of those characteristics it wouldn’t reach God. In many of my prayers, I find myself asking God for more money, my dream house, and possibly an ideal career.

I didn’t think God was listening until he asked me what were my motives?

This wasn’t an easy question to answer. I had to question myself and my values.

Lord, I desire more money so that I can be able to put more inside your Kingdom, not for my own selfish pleasures. Lord, I desire a house so that my children can have a safe and comfortable place to call home not to brag or boost. Lord, I want to advance in my career so that I set an example of hard work, not for how people will perceive me.

When you are not right with God or yourself, it will show in your prayers. In all actuality, we can pray to God for anything. God is my father. He is the beginning and the end. Nothing is too big or too small for my God. Therefore, as a father, I can ask for anything and know that God will bless me with the desires of my heart. But my motives have to be good! If you are asking for things to draw attention to yourself, that’s not of God. And even if you receive those things without his blessings, they will soon flourish. Because he knows your heart.

James 4:1-3

What causes fights and quarrels among you, asks James. Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
