Father as children we are a gift and a blessing to our parents…Our parents are also a gift and a blessing to us…they teach us, guide us and nurture us.

Heavenly Father I humble myself before You, thank You for Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You for breathing life into me today. Father God no matter what circumstances and obstacles I face today I will honor and obey Your direction. “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (II Chronicles‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

Strength 

Heavenly Father thank You for blessing me with a new day. The strength, the courage You place in me, the miracles You do everyday…thank You Jesus. Father God in the Name of Jesus give me understanding and aware of the changes You are making in my life. “Deal bountifully with Your servant, That I may live and keep Your word. Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me.” (Psalms‬ ‭119:17-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Forgive me Lord when I become doubtful and for allowing the enemy to deceive me or make me think I’m worthless or unworthy of Your miracles. I am worthy because You made me worthy. You are the God of the impossible, and I ask You to help me be more patient as I wait on You and never give up. “My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.” (Psalms‬ ‭62:5-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Guide me Lord as I intercede for my family and friends, near and far. Help us Lord, to know and understand that we must let You control all situations and always be mindful to trust in You. Father, help us to remember always that our children have belonged to you from the beginning. Help us Lord to understand that we are here to nurture them and guide them in Your ways while they are in our care. Lord, we have been mindful to raise them up in the way they should go, having made some mistakes of the flesh as we are not perfect. For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you. (‭Psalms‬ ‭147‬:‭13‬ NKJV). We do what we think is right at the time and we know that you, Lord, know our hearts and honor that effort. It is so difficult Lord, to understand them and to be the way they would like us to be. Thank You Lord, for our children and for holding each one of them in Your loving hands. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Almighty Father thank You for never leaving my side. I remember the past when I knew I was alone, and the whole time You were right by my side. “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalms‬ ‭73:26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

Help me Lord to live this life the way You want so I can live with Your peace and enjoy life. I want to live a new life, determined to pursue You and Your promises. Lord I trust You to guide me through every challenge, every circumstance and every obstacle, Lord with You I can and I will experience true freedom. ““I am the vine, you are the branches.

Love…Judgment 

“The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭31:3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for a new day. Father God thank You for letting me see the good in people. Thank You Jesus I don’t judge another based on their circumstances. “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?” (Matthew‬ ‭7:3-4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father Your Word teaches me to love not hate, to have care, have compassion, believe, to have hope and faith. Father God when I feel I’m being attacked by the enemy, let Your Holy Spirit guide me to come to You Lord and Your Word. “Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies’ sake. Do not let me be ashamed, O LORD, for I have called upon You; Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave.” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭31:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for loving me no matter what I’m doing and I know I haven’t done everything right and I backslide at times; but Lord You never not one time have You turned Your back on me. “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” (Isaiah‬ ‭61:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for Your peace, strength and courage in and throughout every area of my life. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Temptation 

“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” (James‬ ‭1:19-20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for Your grace and Your mercy. Thank You for blessing me with a new day. Father I come to You in Jesus Christ’s Holy Name I give myself to You Lord. Jesus cover my family and friends with Your Precious Blood and keep us safe. Guide us during this day and get us to and from our daily journeys.

Almighty God, as we come to You will You forgive us for the errors we have made, and for the promises that we have broken. Remind us of our opportunities as we breathe in Your blessings. Everything I need Lord You provide for me. I will not let fear and doubt consume me. Guide me Holy Spirit as I keep my focus on Gods word. When I feel the tugs of negativity of this world guide me to turn to Your word…“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” (James‬ ‭1:22-25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Reveal Your love where we have fear, release in us Your courage. Lord break any hold that sin has over our lives. Lord reveal to us the power we have in You to defeat all evil. Father God everything I ask of You I ask in the Name of Jesus. Lord I Pray that these words are a blessing to someone today. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!
