Trusting Father’s Love

Sep 30, 2009 by

Father, I honestly don’t feel very free right now. I hurt from rejection and disillusion. I never thought the church would wound me this bad. I know you love me, but I feel trapped in my own pain.   Father, help me to rest in Jesus spirit. Help me to feel and experience your unconditional love. Let me not get caught up in the trap of trying to earn your love. I have come to understand it is only at those times I truly trust in your love that I am free. Any time I doubt or feel that you have rejected me like people do, and I am back to human struggling. At those times, please Holy Spirit, remind me that Father’s love is unconditional. I can do nothing to make Him love...

Help Us With Your Love, Father

Sep 30, 2009 by

Father in heaven, the most high. Father we thank you for the many different ways you show us your unconditional love. Yes, it is true that at times we doubt, and at times we feel you are withholding your love, but deep in our hearts and spirit we know that is not true. We really do know that in the final reality you are the only one that will not withhold love. Your care and concern for us goes far beyond our understanding, and we want your love to touch us in the most tangible ways.   Help us Jesus to feel Father’s love. Help us to see it with our eyes, and sense His love with our spirit. As this week progresses, we look for your love in each and every day. Help...

No One Seems To Care, Lord!

Sep 1, 2009 by

No One Seems To Care, Lord! I have tried, and tried to inspire zeal into the church, but many are consumed with their politics, cell phones, money issues, and sports commitments. You, Lord, seem to fit in only if they have time for you – or need for you at the moment.  Why is the present generation so distracted by toys and worldliness? Help us, Lord. The church needs you to step in and stir the pot! We need you to help all of us to seek your face with all our being.  Come Lord Jesus, come. And please help all of us who are weeping over the decline of your people in this modern age. Thank you, Jesus....

I Hate Church

Dec 30, 2008 by

Father, help me please! I find myself hating church. Not church as it should be, but I hate the human element. I hate the politics. I hate the busy bodies. I hate the culture. I hate the promises that are preached with great zeal, yet never seem to come to pass. I find so much more peace and closeness to you when I sit in my lawn chair under the shade tree and talk with you and hear your word in scripture. Perhaps I have expected too much from church and people? Perhaps the many decades have taken their toll and all I want is you, and no more bull. No more gossip. No more churchianity. No more politics. No more service projects my mind and body can’t live up to. Father, help me....

Blood Covenant Love

Dec 30, 2008 by

Father, it is in the name of Jesus, my Savior, I come to you and like Jonathan coming before David, I openly proclaim you, Jesus, as the King. I renounce any claim to any throne of importance or significance. You are the King, the King of Kings, and I just wish to be a prince at your right hand side. I open my arms, Jesus, and ask you to pour covenant love into my spirit like David did for Mephibosheth. Help me to accept the flow of your love and life into my spirit and help me to communion in the spirit with you. I thank you and praise you for blood covenant love and your willingness to pour it into me! Thank you Jesus!...

Your Will Be Done

Dec 30, 2008 by

Father, it is in the name of Jesus, my savior, I come to you and thank you for being the God of love. Thank you for being love itself, and mercy and kindness and grace. Father I am coming to understand some of my burnout problem is my doing in expecting too much of others and imposing my will on the congregation. Much of the time I was not aware of pushing my will. I just thought I was a zealous leader. Lord, I now realize I need to put my will to death and let your will reign in the church and in my heart personally. When your will rules me, I am always satisfied with what you are doing in each person’s life. I don’t put pressure on others and I allow...
