O Lord, You are my God.
I will exalt You,
I will praise Your name,
For You have done wonderful things;
Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25:1 NKJV
Before we pray I just want to give thanks for a moment. There have been some real trials in my life lately and I just feel the need to thank and praise God for answering prayers and bringing some good things out of those trials. I think that this is a good place to remind all of us who are believers in Christ that we are His body, His hands and feet. I’ve seen this through several of these situations. If you’re reading this and you have done something for someone in need, no matter how big or small to help over the last few weeks; THANK YOU! Thank you for being His hands and feet and responding to a need or needs. Above all, Praise God for all that He has done and is doing!!!
Father God, I come to You giving You thanks and praise! You are amazing, wonderful, and awesome! You alone are worthy of all praise, honor, and glory!!! Thank you for touching the hearts of my family and friends during a time of real trial and hardship. Thank you for their willingness to follow your calling and for the blessings that have resulted. Use these things to touch the hearts of others for Your glory and to show Your goodness and faithfulness to us that we may see more and more of Your blessings and gifts poured out on us. God, I lift up my brothers and sisters in Christ to You now. Even in the midst of these praises many of us are struggling and suffering with things that only You can meet and bless us with out of Your supernatural power. There are needs of healing and restoration, deliverance and rescue, answering of some personal promises to us, the need and deep desire in our hearts and spirits to see You and feel You and experience You more. Please remember us and grant us our petitions. Remember the hopes, dreams, and good desires that You have placed within us and don’t let these things return void. Father, many of us have been waiting for long periods of time. We know that Your time isn’t the same as ours but, we are weak and feeble beings. Please remember that we are but dust, weak and frail, and lift us up so that we may be strengthened, encouraged and so that we may be testimonies to Your goodness and glory. I love You and I give You thanks and praise!!! I pray these things in the name of Christ Jesus my Savior and King; AMEN!
