Today, we pray!

prayer-in-wood-9.16.17WP

On this day that our nation and world is coming together to pray, use it to pray for things that you don’t normally pray for.
Pray for the healing of our nation and world. Pray that hate will come to an end. Pray that God will expose every plot to kill innocent people.
Pray for all lies to be exposed in our government, our nation, our congress, our cities, and our towns.
Pray that truth will prevail.
Pray that God will be brought back to the forefront of our lives where He belongs.
Pray that prayer is brought back to our schools. Pray for the safety and security of our children.
Pray that our eyes turn back to God. Pray to ask the Holy Spirit to convict us when we don’t seek God first.
Pray for the protection of our brave men and women of our military.
Pray for all these endless wars to come to an abrupt, swift, and peaceful end.
Pray for the women facing the decision of abortion. Pray that God will move on their heart to seek alternative actions. Life is a precious gift given my almighty God.
Pray for the President, his protection, his administration, and for the respect for the office of the President be prevalent once again.
Even if you don’t like him, God’s word tells us to pray for our leaders. His word also tells us to pray for our enemies. If you feel the President is an enemy, pray anyway. God tells us to. For through our prayer of our enemies, our animosities dissipate.
Through our prayer, God gives clarity, forgiveness, peace, mercy for those who have offended us, His grace, and blessings.
Pray that God will draw you closer to Him. There is no more significant place to dwell.

Your words can build up or tear down.

word-have-powerWP3.23.19

Your spoken words contain the power to promote or the power to devalue.
Be very mindful about the words uttered by your tongue.
Do the words you speak cause agony, hurt, pain, and tears?
Even the words you speak to your family can raise them up OR pull them down.
God’s word warns us about tearing down others with our words.
Sometimes we speak harsh words to the ones we love that we would not utter to any other person.
Our words can build or tear down. Mere words can cause damage that lasts a lifetime.
Mere spoken words can send another person into a downward spiral that they never recover from.
Mere words can inflict pain, wounds, and suffering that lasts a lifetime.
Mere words can dramatically alter the projected achievements of another person.
Mere words can make someone feel unlovable for a lifetime causing them unrecoverable damage.
If you are speaking evil or using words to tear down others, how will you explain that to God?
There will be a day when we all will have to account for every word spoken.
No one will be exempt from this judgment(Matt12:36).
No man is promised tomorrow. Today, seek the forgiveness of a loving and almighty God.
Today, I am so thankful for His forgiveness. I am not exempt from this judgment, BUT I have sought His forgiveness and stand in His grace of being forgiven.
