Evening Prayer

DOING GOD’S WORK  
Matthew 9:35-38

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will look to the multitudes of people who need Christ in their lives, and be moved by compassion to do the work of the Lord. May you teach them about the life of Christ and proclaim to them the good news of the Kingdom. I pray that when you see the crowd, you will see them with the eyes of Jesus. May you be a witness to them, telling them th at only Jesus can meet their needs. May you have pity on the harassed and helpless, and those who are lost like sheep without a shepherd. May you ask the Lord, therefore, to send you out as His worker, for the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

We Are His

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

~ Acts 17:28 [NLT]
.
God tenderly reminds us that we are children too! We are His children. There are few things in this life that are more comforting in a season of difficulty than being in the presence of your parents.  A mother’s hug can be one of the most restorative actions this world offers and that is exactly what God says He is for us!  He’s our Father, our Safe Place, Refuge, Comforter, Wisdom-Giver, and Rest when we hit those moments where we just can’t anymore.

Evening Prayer

JESUS’ FRIEND 
John 15:15; James 4:4

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You 

I pray that you will enter into a close, intimate relationship with Jesus. May you understand that He does not call you a servant, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, He calls you His friend, for everything He has learned from the Father, He makes known to you. I pray that you will accept Christ’s offer of friendship which He extends to you. May you remember, also, that friendship with the world is hatred toward God. I pray that you will choose to be Christ’s friend today.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Days of Heaven Upon Earth

He calleth things that are not as though they were

~  Rom 4:17

The Word of God creates what it commands. When Christ says to any of us Now are ye clean through the word which I have spoken u nto you, We are clean. When He says no condemnation there is none, though there has been a lifetime of sin before. And when He says, mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, then the weak are strong. This is the part of faith, to take God at His Word, and then expect Him to make it real. A French commander thanked a common soldier who had saved his life and called him captain, although he was but a private, but the man took the commander at his word, accepted the new name and was thereby constituted indeed a captain. Shall we thus take God’s creating word of justification, sanctification, power and deliverance and thus make real the mighty promise, He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might He increaseth strength; for they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.

Carefree

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

~ 1 Peter 5:7 [NLT] 

Are you allowing lies to define who you are? Do you live each day believing the lie that you are unloved, unworthy or unforgiven? God invites us to cast these lies, cares, weights aside! God desires us to live life carefree. To live our days secure in the knowledge that we are His loved ones.

Be Not 😩 Dismayed

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
~ Isaiah 41:10 [NLT]
Let’s stop running to the wrong things when fear tries to leave us tied up in knots. Let’s meditate on scriptures like Isaiah 41:10 so we can remember that God promises to be with us when life is terrifying. He says it over and over again because He knows that fighting fear is a part of being human. He is not upset that you are afraid rather He understands and is there to give you supernatural strength to reclaim your peace.

Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness.
~ Ps 37:3

’Tis weary watching wave by wave,  
And yet the tide heaves onward;  
We climb, like corals, grave by grave,  
That pave a pathway sunward.  
We’re driven back, for our next fray  
A newer strength to borrow;  
And where the vanguard camps to-day,  
The rear shall rest to-morrow.
~ Gerald Massey

Be like the bird, that, pausing in her flight  
A while on boughs too slight,  
Feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings,  
Knowing that she hath wings.
~ Victor Hugo

Prayer

Eternal God, help me to realize that life is not only endless but, whether I live in love and obedience, or wait in neglect and indifference, that I can never separate myself from thee. May I be diligent in worthy endeavors to do my best for thee. Amen.
