Anger…Temptation 

“A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.” (Proverbs‬ ‭15:1-3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me. Lord, help me to always have the courage to not live according to my surroundings. Lord help me to not allow others attitudes cause me to stray off of my God given path. “Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.” (James‬ ‭1:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord I know that You have overcome every obstacle, so I ask You to help me live in the peace that You’ve provided for me. Show me how to trust You as I live. Lord I want to live with You in me, guiding me. I know I will face temptations of different kinds. “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (II Timothy‬ ‭3:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God I trust in You and Your guidance. Father God fill me with Your wisdom, power, and mercy, so that I can touch those You love this day. As I come to You Lord, and humble myself before You, I ask that You clear my mind of any preconceived thoughts, confusion or deception. I ask You Lord to block anything that is not of You and that I hear Your Voice and only Your Voice, Lord Jesus. Show me how I can help the people You bring across my path so they can experience the power of Your love. “For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end,” (Hebrews‬ ‭6:10-11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father I know there have been times that I have lacked the desire for Your Word please give me the thirsting and hungering for it. Let me always want and need to listen to Your Word and to You Lord. In Jesus name… Amen

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians‬ ‭5:15-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father Your power Your grace and Your mercy…it’s indescribable. You are so amazing…when we are down You always lift us up, You heal us when we are sick. Your are our miracle worker. Lord Jesus I will come to You first…“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew‬ ‭6:33-34‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father, help us to go beyond the afflictions and tribulations we face but to look forward to the inheritance waiting for us in heaven. “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:23-24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father when I come to You it’s mainly because I want to help others and brighten someone’s day so they’ll know they’re not alone and someone cares enough to pray for them. Thank You Jesus for allowing me to intercede for others. “And now, I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken, saying, ‘The LORD is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation. ’” (Numbers‬ ‭14:17-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord I want to experience Your power in my thoughts. I will keep my focus on Your goodness and Your love for me.

Selfishness…Love

Heavenly Father reveal to my heart and make it known to me every area that my heart may be hardened, any anger and any unforgiveness. Touch my heart today Lord help me to open my heart love, compassion and peace. “Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth! For the LORD has spoken: “I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against Me;” (Isaiah‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord Jesus I repent of my sins. Father God, everyday You give me another opportunity to reach out, bless and influence someone else with Your love. I want to live a life being a blessing to others, showing them what it means to live focused on You. “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord direct me that everything I do is done out of love and not because of a selfish attitude. “But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, And a good blessing will come upon them.” (Proverbs‬ ‭24:25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Help me to always remember that it is gratification that love is held in life; may I follow it throughout my life where it is divine. Father, I ask You to fill me with Your precious Holy Spirit. Lord I believe that You love me and that You have given me the power to overcome. Today I will act on the faith You have given me every day, trusting in You and overcoming any obstacle that comes my way. “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (I John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord, I know that the tongue can be a powerful tool and it can be used for You or for the enemy. “For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.” (I Peter‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). I submit my thoughts, words and actions to You. Show me how to speak Your truth into my life and into the lives of others. Father I pray that you will stay in my life and break down every idle and cast out every foe and continually lead me in prayer. Thank you Father for the expression of your will for my daily life that you have shown me in your Word. I am thankful Lord that You have blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ in Jesus name I Pray Amen. 

Love

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.” (Isaiah‬ ‭30:21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Jesus please guide my thoughts and my steps today. Thank you Lord for another beautiful day. Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I know that You are leading and guiding me. “But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face.” (Psalms‬ ‭5:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord all that I am, all that I have, every obstacle I face I give to You Lord Jesus. I will be strong and courageous with You and I will make every attempt to follow Your laws. “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.” (Joshua‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord strengthen me and guide me with Your Word when I am tempted to stray. Fill me, my friends and family with love so that we can be kind and affectionate to one another. Teach us all to love one another just as You have loved us. “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” (I John‬ ‭4:9-11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Father, Thank You Jesus for loving me, Thank You Holy Spirit for guiding me. Please keep my family and friends covered with your Blood and keep them safe. Please fill our hearts with compassion for one another, love, joy and patience. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Love, Anger & Repentance 

““I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, For My anger has turned away from him.” (Hosea‬ ‭14:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You, thank You for me. Lord oh how I love You, but I know my love has no comparison to the love You have for me. You guide, You strengthen, You have mercy but most of all Your sacrifice of Your own only son. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord Jesus I believe in You, thank You for saving me. Lord with a humble heart I come to You asking for forgiveness. I allowed anger and frustration to get the best of me. In the Name of Jesus Father please forgive me for any hurtful words and actions I may have expressed towards anyone. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.” (Ephesians‬ ‭1:7-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for the Blood You shed for Your children. In the Name of Jesus I command you satan to back off of my family, friends and myself…leave our homes, our workplaces and our surroundings. We are children of God; He is our guide, He gives us courage, strength and grace…“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” (I Corinthians‬ ‭15:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord no matter how upset, frustrated or angry I get Lord I will always keep my heart, my thoughts and actions open to You and Your guidance in my life. Thank You Father for Your Words. Father I pray that the words You give me are a blessing to someone today. In Jesus Name I Pray. Amen!!!
