Today’s Prayer (01/04/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will help me and others in the faith. Life can be very hard, but with You in our lives, all is peaceful and we are made strong. All of our worries are put to rest when You come and wrap Your arms around us. In Your presence, we are safe in the middle of the storms. We are a blessed people to know You, God, and to have You in our lives. Many people will never encounter You like we have, and we have much to praise and honor You for. It surely is a blessing to do Your will and to worship You, Jesus, my King. In all this, I ask that You make us bold for Your kingdom, while making us humble also. People who are willing to ask for help. When we feel that we can do everything on our own, we are actually moving away from You and not toward You. So I ask that humility will be a characteristic that every person who says they believe in You will desire for their lives. Then, can You come inside of us through the Holy Spirit and make this become a reality. And when we are helped in different areas by people, help us to remember to bless them in Your Name, Jesus. These good acts towards us come from You and I give You and them thanks. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Genesis 47:7-10

Genesis 47:7-10 (KJV)
7 And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.
8 And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?
9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.
10 And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.
