Is Praying Important To You?

google image

Is praying as important as life and death to you? It was to Daniel. Daniel was a great man of faith and prayer. He prayed three times a day even though it was against the King's decree. Daniel is a good example for us to follow.

Light for Today: But though Daniel knew about it, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs bedroom, with its windows open toward Jerusalem, and prayed three times a day, just as he always had, giving thanks to his God. Daniel 6:10 TLB

Are You In Prison?

Buckingham Palace

Are you in a prison?

Your prison can become your palace!

Trust Jesus

We have a choice ~ we can either worry or worship and we can either pray or panic. The more we pray the less we'll panic. God will take care of us. If our minds are filled with resentment, worry, fear, lust, guilt anger, bitterness or any other emotional disease, it's going to shorten our lives. If we really trust Jesus we will be less stressed.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 NIV

(This writing was inspired by one of Rick Warren's essays.)

Pray With Praise

Are you praying selfishly? Wanting all sorts of things for yourself? That is not what prayers are meant for. God in His wisdom refuses things we wrongly desire. Infuse your prayers with praise and thanksgiving. When you pray with thanksgiving and praise you will find yourself praying less selfishly and more for others. Those kind of prayers God answers.

Light for Today: I will praise God's name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

Sing Praises To The Lord

We can sing our cares away easier than we can reason them away. The birds sing early in the morning and they are without care more than anything else I know of.

Light for Today: Oh, that we might sing morning and evening, and let song touch song all the way through. (Unknown)

Fall Blessings

artist: Trina Clark

Be like a pumpkin! Let God pick you off the vine and wash all the dirt off. Let Him open you up and touch you deep inside. Gladly let Him scoop out all the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, envy etc. Then He can carve a bright new smiling face and put His light inside to shine for all the world to see.

Light for Today: The blessings of the Lord be upon you. Psalm 129:8
