Today’s Prayer (01/31/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will get right with You while there still is time. We will never know the date, hour, minute, or second that we will take our last breath, so I pray that people are preparing to meet You each day of their lives. I love to do this, for You are more than God to me, but also my Father of whom I would do anything for. I mean this, Lord, whatever You would ask of me, I will stop what I am doing and run to do your commands. May Your will be done in my life as it is in heaven. One day when I eventually die, I pray that I will ascend up into paradise, where I will await the rewards judgment for the righteous. So if there is anything in my life now that needs to change, I am willing to do so. Remove anything out of my life that includes any sins and bad habits that are not for You. You have already ripped out of my heart every addiction, and the false beliefs I once had while growing up. Thank You for thinking of me and for allowing me to be made clean in order to have Your presence in my life. I owe everything to You, God. I trust in You. I love You. In Jesus’s Name, I pray. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/30/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that we will hearken unto Your voice at all times in our lives. I would not wish to be afflicted because of a certain sickness because I went against Your will. I do know that plagues can come by Your hand and also the enemy. But as for me, I live each day in Your holiness and righteousness. This way if I am afflicted I will know that it is the enemy trying me. Because I am Your child, I will not be afflicted by Your hand. I do fear You, God, for You are the most powerful being on earth and in heaven. You are my King and I respect You so much as to do Your will as it is in heaven. Thank You for not allowing me to not get too sick because of COVID. I could have very easily died because of it, especially because of my nose and throat issues, but still, I have not been down because of COVID for work reasons. You have continued to strengthen me, in order for me to wake up each day with a renewed bill of health. I may not be healthy in that I have constant nose and throat issues, but at least I can still help my family and work, while not having COVID take me down. I believe in You, Lord. I trust in You, God. I love You. In Your Name, Jesus. I pray. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/29/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will no longer harden their hearts against You. So many people in the world we live in are living for the flesh instead of Your will. Sin is abiding in people’s lives instead of people living for Your holiness. Cuss words are often used uncontrollably, while lustful and covetous thoughts are on full display. Instead of cutting off things out of people’s lives like pornography, alcohol, drugs, and bad influences, people are continuing to give in to these things like it doesn’t matter. What does this say? It says that not everyone who calls You Lord is actually a genuine believer. How many real Christians are out there that love Your ways and hate the sinful things of this world? I will never know. All I know, God, is that this number is smaller than I ever thought. I am happy that I cannot see how people are thinking and acting when they are outside the doors of their church building, for I would be very much upset and depressed by what I am seeing. But You, Lord, do this and much more. So many people must be quenching the Spirit and not even realizing it. But God, make a way for many more people to escape the evils of this world, in order to find You and be saved. I love You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/28/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will teach me and others all things. Truly, people have tried to take Your Words for their own and publish them as if You said it to them in their own books instead of the Bible, which is very sad. What I know is that Your Words from the Bible come with much power and great authority. No wonder why people would try to take certain parts of it and change it, in order to cause less people to receive power through Your Words. As so-called churches and cults have come about, what their leaders now say is more important than even Your Words in the Bible. They say that their church leaders can contradict, speak against, or take away important verses in the Bible and they would still follow their leader’s advice. Truly, this is corruption in the making and I pray for people who are currently stuck in a religion like this that does not save. Help open their eyes to what is true, that they may cling to what is good and throw out what is evil. I know how hard it is for people who have been born and raised in a faith that appears to be good and then leave it behind. All I know, God, is that it is worth giving up things in order to be saved. I trust in You, Lord. I believe in You, God. I love You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/27/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that we will begin to learn by You and not all things man & woman. Truly, we must learn to divide what we hear from people in church and other places with what Your Bible says. If we are not doing this, then I wonder where our heart is really. Why do people love what they learn from people and other books more than the Bible? How is it that what You have said in scripture is second place or further on people’s list? I’ve asked my mom and other family members how long it has been since they’ve read the Bible and they often say, “I’ve read it before”. It’s like they think that the Bible is like any other book and once we’ve read it, that is enough. So what do I say to these types of people who are so lost, God? What does God and His words mean to You? If they say, “more than everything”, I then ask them, “don’t you think then that reading the Bible daily to know what God says is important?” This truly gets them thinking and motivated to read the Bible, so that they can learn from You daily. I do this, Lord, for I know that the Bible is holy. It is Your written word for us in this time and in all generations. I trust in You, Jesus. Lead me now and all the days of my life. I love You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/26/2022)

My Father, who art in heaven, I come to You in praise and honor. Thank You for calling me out from the darkness and into Your marvelous light. I would not be secure in the faith if Your ever-presence was not in my life. Truly, as You dwell in the Son, I have You and the Jesus in my life through the Holy Spirit. This is the protection I need to not give in to temptation and the evil forces of this world. Many people want to take me down because of my stance with You, God. I am firm in my beliefs that stem from the Bible, and I know that this will come with much resistance and persecution. I’ve already had a person recently look me up and find my address, in order to come over and beat me up. Sure, I was afraid for a while because of this threat, but it soon subsided. I don’t fear people who wish to harm the body, for doing that will only speed up my chances to be with You sooner than not. All I wish for, Lord, is to be with You in heaven. Death comes to all people, but it is a blessing to be saved and go to heaven, instead of hell. Surely, You could have sent me to hell, but instead, You rescued me, while breathing new life into my soul because of mercy. Thank You, Lord. I love You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/25/2022)

Oh Lord, thank You for calling me out of the world in order to follow You. I may have been deep into sin, but You still took my hand and led me from evil and to what is good. You have changed my entire mentality about sin, for I now hate even the appearance of evil I would not think this way if You were not in my life. I give You the glory for having compassion upon me and for forgiving my sins. Thank You, Father. You are my guide. Your mercy and grace are what keep me going strong. I don’t deserver to be called Your son, but You have clothed me in white and took me in no matter what. I rejoice in my Lord, my Savior. Your mercy endures forever. Your forgiveness has no end. This world is lacking Your presence and it tears me up inside that many of them are going to hell when they die. We are either Your child or the child of the devil, there is no in-betweens. Therefore, I pray that more people will come to You in faith that is not superficial. Being sorry for our sins should not be a chore, but done immediately in tears because we need forgiveness. Help stop the justifying of sins also, for this stops people from submitting their lives to You. I believe in You, Lord. I love You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/24/2022)

Daily Prayer: Oh Lord, I pray that You will move in those that say they are for You. I am talking about every person in every denomination, non-denomination, including false religions and cults. I mention false religions and cults, for I know that many people therein, would say they love You and desire to do

Today’s Prayer (01/23/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that we all come out of the things of this world and live for You instead. It might be difficult for some people who are wrapped up in different addictions, but this is only true if they are trying to break free on their own terms and not with Your help. You have given me new desires that love what You love and hate what you hate. No person do I hate, but the evils of this world. Thank You, Lord, for changing me. All I desire now is to live in Your holiness and to no longer be infiltrated because of sinful things. Truly, willful sins have caused me to fall many times in my life, which I am very sorry. Thankfully, You did not give up on me when You very well could have. You extended my life to where I am today. Am I perfect now? No. But am I living for You? Yes. Lord, have Your way in my life. Lead me in Your holiness and righteousness. I want less of me and more of You in my life. I may not have always been called Your child in the past, but I am so glad You call me Your child now. I don’t deserve to be Your son, but Your mercy is far greater than the sins in my past. I trust in You, God. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/22/2022)

Oh Lord, thank You for saving me and other Christians all throughout the world. Each one of us has done things we wish we haven’t and still You took us in as if nothing had ever happened. The moment You heard our confessions and our desires to no longer sin in the same way, You had compassion upon our souls. Your mercy is for us and I pray that more people will experience it in their lifetime. I am so grateful for Your forgiveness and for removing different sinful urges from the flesh that I once had before submitting my life to You. I may not be perfect in any fashion of the word, but still, I am strengthened daily through Your constant presence in my life. Truly, You are my Father now and I am Your son. It may have been a long road to get here, but it was worth it to be adopted in as Your child. It is my prayer that You will help people know and understand that we are not automatically called Your children, but only those who have true faith in You, Jesus. I say true, for there are many people who say they are saved, but don’t live their lives for You. They said a prayer when they were younger for salvation and are counting on that. Open their eyes, God. Help people to actually live for You if they say they believe in You, also. I love You, Lord. I trust in You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/21/2022)

Oh Lord, I am so grateful to have You in my life. You are so good to me. Truly, I don’t deserve to be called Your son after all I’ve done in my life. You should have rejected me and put me out of Your sight a long time ago, but You continued to see my potential. Thank You for not giving up on me. You heard my cries and had compassion upon my soul. There is mercy in the Lord for it is for me. I wish that every person could experience Your forgiveness and mercy. It is like a load is lifted off our shoulders when we know that our sins are forgiven. It is my prayer that people will come to know You Jesus also and be saved. Help them know about Your goodness. It may take giving up false beliefs in order to desire to become Your son or daughter but it will be worth it. Once people understand what this really means to be called Your child, people will do whatever it takes to put aside their own beliefs and have faith in You alone. I pray this happens with more people in this life. Every person that says they believe in You needs to know what it means to be Your son and daughter also. I love You, Lord. I trust in You, God. Have Your way in my life. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/20/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will learn from You and not the teachings of men. How can this happen? They need to begin to search the Bible in order to know if what they believe in is from You or from people. May more people do this and come to You, Jesus, for salvation. Even as I pray, the Mormon church has infiltrated homes all over the world, while teaching a false gospel. They lower the need to get right with You in this life, for they teach that people can be saved in the next. They also teach that we are all Your children and that we do not have to do anything to be called Your child. Truly, they have taken what You have spoken through Your witnesses in the Bible and have desecrated and put down Your words. Even the cross is not important to them, for they put emphasis on Gethsemane instead. Lord, I rebuke these false witnesses in this cult. Most of them don’t even realize that they are led astray through their false prophets, which is really a shame. What I ask of You is to wake these people up from their sleep. May more people come to know You through Your true teachings in the Bible. Then, can they unlearn the lies in Mormonism and come out of it for Your sake. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/19/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to get right with You today. I know that for this to happen a great awakening needs to take place first. I am speaking of bringing to light the sin in people’s lives that they have made out to be good. What is very evil is that oral traditions, false beliefs, and false worship from the past have crept into churches in our time. I am speaking of the belief in a queen of heaven and/or a heavenly mother. Lord, I have tried to talk sense into people who believe this way, but their hearts are so hardened and will not give in to the truth. So I simply ask, what can I and other people do better in order to reach those who are lost? I don’t want people to unknowingly die and go to hell. This would be such a tragedy. It is already hard to go to funerals of family members that lived and died as Mormons. What that means is that I either failed You in reaching these people with the gospel or they themselves denied me as a witness for You. I pray that it will never be me failing You. And if I have, please forgive me. All I ask is that You do a good work in me and others in the faith also. Many of us are praying for people in our family, co-workers, and friends that are lost in a false religion. Help us know when and how to reach them for Your sake, Jesus. I believe in You, God. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/18/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will stop blaspheming You in their false worship of other gods. Catholics have made Mary out to be the queen of heaven which is abominable in Your sight. It rubs me wrong to know that they light candles, pray, and even burn incense to Mary. Do they not know that this was already spoken against in the times of Jeremiah? You called these people wicked and working an abomination in Your sight, and I believe it. I am also saddened to hear that those in the Mormon camp also fall into similar false beliefs. They teach as part of their doctrine that You, Father, have a wife or queen in heaven. And because they believe that all creation comes from You, Father, and Your so-called wife, they also believe in the fertility God that was spoken against in the times of Jeremiah. There are also women in this church that sing songs about a heavenly mother, which is truly false worship. These sins are so wicked and pains me to see them mock You like this God. So I pray that Your wrath will fall upon them and wake them up to know the errors of their sinful ways. Then will they repent and get right before You, and You alone, before their last breath. I love You, Lord. I believe in You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/17/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will wake up to their false beliefs. May they repent before they take their last breath. I fear that too many people would rather believe what their church has taught them instead of what You have said in the Bible. One teaching that really bothers me is the Queen of Heaven and/or Heavenly Mother teaching. I can’t help but see how angry you were with the people in Jeremiah’s time when it came to this idolatrous practice. Truly, Your anger was stirred out against the people because of these wicked practices. And now we see them in full swing again in Catholicism with Mary being made out to be the Queen of Heaven, and Mormons believing in a Heavenly Mother. Even today I had a conversation with an LDS Missionary and tried to show him the verses in Jeremiah, chapter 7, verses 15-20, that speak against the Queen of Heaven teaching, and still he could not stop believing in a fertility God. All this is blasphemy and I pray that You will cause these false beliefs to cease once and for all. I believe in You, Lord. You are my God and I worship You alone. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/16/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will not only use me for Your kingdom but many more Christians also. I know that we have millions of people that say they are Christian, but only a few of them have and are using spiritual giftings for Your kingdom now. Why this is, I may never know. But this does not have to continue this way. First off, I pray for every pastor at different Bible-believing churches. Lead them, Lord. Give them words to speak. Help them awaken people to Your ministry and not just come to church. There is so much that people could be doing with spiritual giftings upon them from heaven, but how can they know about such gifts unless it is taught? Through baptism is when an outpouring of these spiritual gifts comes. May this teaching become crystal clear for every person in the churches. I pray for a hunger for Your Word and to pray like never before in every person’s hearts, not just pastors. Then, will they also desire to go out in the harvest and begin to win souls for You, Jesus. I have loved the times I have gone out and reached people with Your gospel message, Lord. These are the best times of my life. I love You. Doing Your will is what I am called for. I trust in You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/15/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will go forth in the harvest no matter if there is much resistance. Truly, not everywhere we go there are people ready to hear Your voice and be converted to the gospel. However, as we heed Your voice, I know that we will be led to people who have been seeking the truth and are ready to receive You. I love the times I’ve been on the streets witnessing for You, especially when a person is willing to pray for salvation. This makes the night worth it. I can still remember the day that I was preaching the gospel in front of a pizza place and a bunch of teenagers began asking me questions about You, Jesus. It was then that they were all convicted of their sins and wanted to do a joint prayer while holding hands. Each person prayed for salvation and many tears were shed that day. The hardest thing was having enough gospel tracts and Bibles to hand out for they were all given out in an instance. That night like other nights in the harvest, it took a while until we found someone to witness to. Thankfully, I didn’t give up. And even now, I continue to witness Your gospel truths. I love You, Lord. Thank You for that night and give me many more encounters like this in the future. I trust in You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/14/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will come into our lives. Have Your way in us, Lord. On our knees do we fall down and worship You, my King. We are sorry for our sins. Forgive us and form us into the person You wish us to be. We may have lived a life that is unpleasing in Your sight, but we are sorry and need Your mercy. Take any false beliefs and throw them out in the fire also. Through daily Bible study and prayer, speak into our souls Your wisdom. May our beliefs come from You alone. Help us to not trust in people that are really not for You. Many people appear to be good or in the faith, but inwardly they are ravening wolves causing many people to go astray. Truly, on the day that You return and judgment is set upon the earth, many people will say Lord, Lord, haven’t I done all these good things while on earth. However, in all this, You never knew them. What most people do is make up a god to fit their own beliefs and family traditions, instead of searching the scriptures (Old and New Testament) for themselves. So Your words don’t apply to their lives and who they are. This is a travesty, for many of these people seem genuine, but are lost nonetheless. I love You, Lord. Lead us safely home, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/13/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will stop denying their chance to do Your will on earth. We are Your hands and feet. However, many people deny their opportunity to serve You because of different reasons. They may think they are inadequate in their speech or have other excuses for not jumping into the calling that You have for their lives. Do they not realize that You created us? How in the same way You created us, You can shape us into the person You desire also. As for me, I’ve had a speech impediment most of my life, but that was not stopping me from telling people about You, Jesus. The moment I was baptized I wanted to tell everyone about You. I found many occasions to knock on doors and to street evangelize, and I did not have to worry about my speech impediment. You were the one giving me the words to speak and I was able to proclaim the good news of the gospel with clarity. I am still able to do this to this day and I give You all the glory. I am so happy I didn’t doubt Your calling to be an evangelist, for I could have easily done this. Lord, You mean more to me than anything else. Therefore, I will live and die for You. I love You. Lead me now and forever. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/12/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will lead more people in the harvest in order to reach people who are lost in cults and in the world. Help them like You have me to not be ashamed to share Your truth no matter if it does seem harsh at first. Truly, the truth does hurt when people are deep into their false beliefs. It leaves a sting, but this sting is necessary. If people cannot see that they are in sin then they will continue to go against Your will unknowingly. One thing I would never wish to do is to simply be loving to people who are perishing in their false beliefs or worldly actions. This would make me an unfaithful servant, for I allowed them to live their own lives and then die in their sins. Surely, hell awaits the majority of people that die in this world and I wish to stop this from happening with more people. Since I am only one person I know that I can only help a few people compared to the billions of people in this world. However, that few can grow into the thousands and millions if people would simply rise up and join me in these efforts to reach the lost before it is too late. I do all this for You, God. You deserve all the glory. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/11/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will become each one of our teachers and not the people who we may make our teachers in the church’s we currently attend. Too many people rely on their church leaders to lead them into truth instead of relying on what Your Word says. Too many cults have sprung up because of this and it saddens me to the core that people don’t listen to You but people instead. All it takes is reading the Bible for themselves and then all their false beliefs will slowly be cast into the fire. You are the only person who should be molding and shaping us into the person we ought to be, not people. So I rebuke every false teacher who does not head what Your Word says in the Bible, but instead teaches things that are of men. Surely, they have a form of godliness, but Your light is not in them. I wish I could lend a helping hand to each person who is stuck in a false religion now and safely lead them out of it to you, Lord. However, I know that because of the vast amount of false churches, I will need many more sisters and brothers in the faith to step out in faith. Help us shine forth for all to see. Then, will people who are lost come to You, Jesus, and be saved. Open our mouths and fill us with Holy Spirit. Give us words to speak to people. I trust in You, Jesus. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/10/2022)

Oh Lord, I give You thanks for my wife and my two beautiful daughters. They are a blessing to my life. Surely, the day that I met my wife I knew that she was different among the other women I dated. And now I know why I felt this way. It was You directing me to her. Thankfully I listened to these promptings, for now, we are in year 15 of the marriage and my two daughters are in high school and nearing the end of grade school. We are happy because You are with us. So much has changed over the years. You have done a mighty work in my life and there’s also. Together, You have led us to Calvary Chapel. For many years, my heart cried out for answers. I was lost in my false beliefs and needed to be rescued. There was also much sin in my life because of lust. I prayed for help and You came to my rescue. In my tears did You forgive me of all my sins. You remembered me among the billions of people on earth and had compassion for my soul. Through Your blood, Jesus, am I made new. You have set me free! I love You, Lord. Lead me all the rest of my days. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/09/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will wake up to their sins if they have ever been involved with abortion. Unfortunately, many people who call themselves Christians are also pro-choice, which is very sad. But the saddest thing of all, God, is that many pastors are not teaching against abortion or don’t even touch on this topic in church. Surely, when abortion was first legalized it caused an uproar in the church at large. So I ask, Lord, what has happened to churches in America and all around the world. Why are pastors and teachers just giving into what the world says is ok, when they should know by the Holy Spirit that abortion is evil? And now that I think about it, I cannot remember the last time the topic of abortion was even brought up in the church I attend. But I will not let this just continue as is, I will go boldly to my elders and pastors and ask them why abortion is not addressed in sermons. I pray that people have asked them this question, but I will never know unless I first ask them myself. I just ask, God, that You help me do this with love and respect. I do not want to cause a scene, but simply get their stance on abortion and if upcoming sermons will be given on it. Help me Lord. I love You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/08/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will not be swindled into believing a false gospel. But for those who are already lost in a false religion, I pray that some of them will come out of it still. I know that once a person is involved in cults like Mormonism, it is almost impossible for them to even hear Your message, let alone receive it and be saved. Truly, what they have been taught all their life appears to them more true than anything else we can share with them. Just knowing this causes most evangelists to not waste their time talking to Mormons. This is very sad, for You have done a mighty work through Patrick and me these many years while in Salt Lake City Utah. Out of the millions of people who live there, hundreds of people have heard the gospel message of the cross and resurrection. Have they come out of their false religion? We will never know for sure. So, Lord, I pray that salvation will come when I and other Christians reach Mormons with the true gospel message of the Bible. Open their eyes to Your truths. I only wish to see more souls go to heaven while doing Your work on earth. Help us in these efforts. If the Holy Spirit is not with us, nothing good will take place. I trust in You, Lord. I love You. All the glory and praise to Your Holy Name, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/07/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that our lives will become conformed to be like Yours. I know how hard it is for people to give up certain things like addictions, bad habits, and walls of unforgiveness, but all this is so important in order to walk in Your light. As for me, I am willing, God, to do whatever You ask of me. I have given up everything that could keep me away from Your love in order to do Your will above all else. So I ask that You use me for Your kingdom. Light up my path, that every ounce of darkness will be scattered when I talk to or walk past people. Don’t let anything that is worldly enter my life again. You have given me a heart that despises what is evil and clings to what is good. Thank You for teaching me what it means to forgive that I might be forgiven also. Your mercy is real but I wasn’t able to experience it until I developed a true heart to allow You to change me from within. Truly, I can only do so much when it comes to my strivings to do good in this life. However, with You leading me, I am bold for Your kingdom. Nothing on earth can stop me from proclaiming the good news of the gospel to everyone I meet. This is only true because You are with me. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/06/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that we will fully understand what You did for us Jesus on the cross. How You died for our sins and that through Your blood we can be forgiven. This is the greatest sacrifice of all. Centuries before this happened, You revealed Your coming to Jacob, who is Israel. And since then, the Hebrew people anxiously awaited their promised Messiah. It may have taken a bit longer than they expected, but You did come exactly as was expected. The same can be said with Your second coming. Although it has been two thousand years since You first came, it feels like forever. We anxiously await Your second coming. We may be few in number compared to the billions of people on earth, but still, we are strong in the faith. No matter if people ridicule us or persecute us because of our obedience to You, we will never let down. Your presence in our lives means more to us than anything else this world can offer us. Our treasures are built up in heaven. Lord, we bless and honor You. You are our God, Jesus, and we praise Your holy Name. Draw us and others to You before their lives come to an end. I love You, Lord. I trust in You, God. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/05/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that we will have an open mind when it comes to Your teachings in the Bible and not what every person in our church or others may say about You and Your teachings. So many false doctrines are spread when people simply trust in men, instead of searching the scriptures to see if their teachings come from You or not. One such teaching that I really enjoy from the Bible is baby blessings, of which I know comes from Your holy Word. By the mouth of two or three witnesses do we see people blessing children over time. This really helps me and different pastors of churches know that blessing child is a worthwhile thing to do. Truly, pastors that bless these children should be worthy of such an important act also. This way, they can receive a word of knowledge concerning the baby or young child in their midst. Therefore, help lead every believer in Your church through pastors that truly honor and obey You in word and in deed. I trust in You, Lord. You are my God and I worship You also. I love you, Jesus. Amen.

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.

Today’s Prayer (01/03/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that Your work will continue on earth as it is in heaven. I am Your servant and You are my God. I will go forth and do your will no matter what befalls me. I love Your words in scripture. I have learned so much about You, Jesus. How you are so wonderful, our counselor, mighty God, the everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace. I know that many people leave out the fact that You are our mighty God and the everlasting Father, but this is so wrong when people do this. Yes, Lord, I love to speak to people about You, but it rubs me so wrong when people deny that You are God, Jesus. This truly is denying everything You have said while You were on earth and all throughout the Bible. As for me, I believe everything the Bible says, not just bits and pieces that conform to my own beliefs. What is in Your Words are holy, and to discount some of the verses or chapters would be terrible for me to do. Therefore, I will proclaim what You have spoken in scripture to every person I can. Through social media, my website, and in person, the good news of the gospel and Your teachings will be published throughout all the nations. Only You can help me do this. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/02/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to read the Bible and allow themselves to learn like never before. All I ask is that people put aside their false beliefs and allow Your teachings to sync deep into their souls. It is never my desire to cause people to doubt their faith and become an atheist. Instead, my desire is for people to put down their beliefs while they learn from You, God. Then, little by little their beliefs will become conformed to Yours also. This does mean putting aside other non-biblical books and meditating upon Your words alone. I pray that this will happen. Only then can false teachings be put to rest and Your true teachings come to light. I know that my own beliefs are not perfect. I have much to learn from You still, God. Give me wisdom, Lord. Fill me up with the Holy Spirit, that I may know what is right and then cling to those things that I know are good. All I hope for is to run from what is wrong and evil in this world, and do Your will instead. This I strive to do day in and day out. In Your Name, Jesus, I rebuke every false teaching and cling to what is in Your Word. May I do this in respect and love at the same time. I love Your ways. Keep me on your holy path. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s Prayer (01/01/2022)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to hear Your voice when you call them. There are so many paths that we could be following in life, but only one path leads to life eternal. That is the path with You, Jesus, at the head. As for me, I only want to hear Your voice, even if it is a still small voice, or a prompting that comes from other things in life. What this world offers me is not the fulfillment I need, but what You offer me instead. I am willing to get up and move my family to any place on this earth, if that was Your will for my life. Where You want me to go may not be easy for me in any regard, but will it be right for me? Yes, and that is all I care about. I don’t need comfort in life when it comes to the worlds standards, but the comfort that You give me. This comfort can come when I am persecuted for my faith. Yes, while in prayer, You are the one that gives me peace when life is hard. As for now, I have a new job starting on Wednesday. This is a great unknown to me at this point. Help me to not just fit it, but to be a light among my new co-workers. I have prayed about this and feel right about this new opporunity. Lead me, Lord. I will follow You to the ends of time. I love You, God, and give You praise and honor. Amen.
