Morning Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray today for my followers, for my family, for my friends, and for those that I do not know, Lord. I pray that today is a day of healing, a day of rebirth, and a day of joy, Lord. I pray that those who have been told that they have terminal illness, that they are healed. I pray that Your children continue to seek You, that they know You are the living God. I pray for their souls Lord. There is a lot of noise going on in the world, and I pray that they ask for the gift of discernment,Lord. Lord, I declare that no weapon formed against us will prosper, I declare that any attacks that the enemy has planned, that they will fail. I am covering my community in Your armor, Lord.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Today I felt moved to pray for everyone as I was going through my morning prayers. If this is something that you would like to see more of, just let me know.

Loss and Rainbows

Before losing my son, I always thought of rainbows as a beautiful event after a storm. I thought they were pretty to look at, and as a child, I thought that there was treasure found at the end.

In the loss community, rainbows take on a more significant meaning than just colors on a spectrum. A child born after loss is considered a rainbow. After going through the storm of miscarriage, stillbirth, or death, a rainbow appears to signal a change.

In the Bible, Genesis 9:14 states, “ When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds. I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh.”

When I decided to fully turn myself to Christ and worship him despite my loss, the Lord saw fit to bless me. He blessed me with a child that we consider a rainbow. He made a convenant with me the day that I truly sought him out.

Some of you are still going through a storm, but I urge you to seek Him. As long as you keep His commandments and praise Him, He will bless you. I can not tell you when or how, but know this, there is a rainbow after every storm.

Thanksgiving

You version Bible

When you woke up today, were you grateful?

Or, were you just already in a grumpy mood?

See, every morning, no matter how I feel when I awake, I pray.

I pray before I leave the house. Why? Because I must put on the armor of God, of the Holy Spirit, before I walk out into the world.

We can not stop how someone else is feeling or how they may react, but we can get up each morning and pray that the Lord is with us. We can get up each morning and give him thanks for all of the little things that he does for us.

Back in August, I was involved in my first accident. A semi merged into my lane, they did not look to see that I had been in that lane for quite some time, nor did they actually have the ‘right’ to merge. My car was deemed a total loss, but Me? I walked away from it with no injuries. Some would say that I was lucky, I say that I am blessed and anointed.

So, before you leave out today, give thanks and praise to our Lord. Thank Him for allowing you to get up, thank Him for the roof over your head, and thank Him for how all of your needs are met.
