Turning it over in Prayer

God is my judge, in my prayer-life and ALL.  Before Him, and with you, I share my prayer, and ask for your agreement.  You feel free in the comments, to share thoughts, or request prayer yourself.

Lord, I am so grateful for your AMAZING LOVE and FAITHFULNESS, and for beauty, friends, and encouragement along the way.  

In every change, every phase, every curve in the road, YOU  have provided beauty.  

I am grateful for my memories of the beauty
........... the long stretches of coastal plains, and the salty rippling bays

........ the tall piney woods forests, with trees that near reach the sky

............. the deserts of Nevada, where the sky is the most beautiful BLUE that ever shined

......... the limestone hills here in Texas where I live, with the mesmerizing babbling rivers and brooks.  

These are memories that I hold dear, along with the faces that smiled along the way, shared a friendly word or thought, or pat on the back.  In these things, I feel YOU and and I see your love and your power.

 I am disappointed in myself, that often I do not embrace change or challenge in confidence, if it takes me from my routine, my home, my family, yet I should, because of my trust in YOU.... because of how AWESOME YOU are, Father.

I should enthusiastically run to each challenge knowing that it is an opportunity for YOU to show  YOURSELF faithful to meet my every need.  YOU have never let me down before.  YOU are a faithful and loving, amazing God.  Only one true God!

These changes which are a challenge for me, could be an opportunity for ME to shine for Christ, which I am willing.

...but I do need HELP.

 (Ephesians 6:16-18) in prayer:  Lord help me to take up the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is WORD from YOU.

Help me to rest in YOU through the changes and challenges, of the journey down the road, even when it takes  me where I do not covet to go.

Help me to rest in the very knowledge of WHO YOU ARE,
How blessed I am, to be YOURS,
How YOU are with me where ever I go,
How ultimately, 

Romans 8:38-39
....neither death, nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thank  you for YOUR WORD, for JESUS, for shade, and living water.  I pray for your will to be done, in my heart, in my life, in my family's life, and in the whole world, as in Heaven.

All glory, and honor, and trust, I seek to give to YOU Father, in YOUR beloved son Jesus's name I pray.  AMEN

    1. Thank you Edith, for your encouragement, and for sharing something of yourself here. I have been blessed by your wonderful fiction story, part 1,2,3,4 about Ebony and his beautiful neighbor. I think I shall try to write something up and link my readers to your blog, that they may partake and be blessed as well........
