Morning Offering

As we build this community prayer platform, with help from the #PrayerWarriors team, we ask the Lord to listen to our petitions with full confidence they not only are heard but acted upon by God according to His holy will. These requests are on my prayer list and I hope you consider putting them on yours as you place your petitions before the Lord Sunday.

As we approach the throne room, let’s remember to respond with faith and not fear, knowing the promises of God and His mighty hand will hold us through any situation!

Today is wedding day for my grandson Ryan and his bride to be Maddi. Lord, I ask for Your blessing on their marriage … and on all marriages. I pray they keep You in their lives as they march forward in their lives.

We thank you Lord for the successful full knee replacement surgery for Julius, but other  issues have developed and he was re-admitted to the hospital with blood clots, staph infection, etc. His wife Kim adds, “need prayer.”

Christy, 46, was diagnosed this week with colon cancer. She is a believer, so the family has that hope “that is the anchor of our souls.” Prayers are welcomed.

Andrew reports things are getting more badder (I’m tired of saying “worse”) by the day. He says he can’t move around without really heavy coughing, and nights are pretty much an evil doze and a gasping wake-up.

George asks for prayer for continued recovery and for his family in this trying time.

Susan asks to be lifted up as she is admitting her mom into hospice. Lord we know that’s a trying decision for so many. Please help them know You walk with them during the trying time.

Mark asks for need prayers for his wife who was rushed to the ER now stroke symptoms. We’re blessed, Lord, because, as George states, “God is in control.”

David broke his back and neck  in a construction accident.

Jim of Big Jim’s Walk is making some special appearances during his convalescence and restart of his Bike Across America for Addiction Recovery.

We come to You, Lord, because prayer is the least yet the greatest thing we can do for each other. When two or more are gathered in Your name, we confidently know You are with us. What better company can we have? You reign and we trust You! We may be broken and battered but know You heal and quiet the soul. You are the source for all that happens in our lives. We thank You for the progress being made. We thank You for the many blessings we have received this week — some we unfortunately didn’t notice. Nonetheless, those blessings are ever-present in our lives. We thank You for healing. We thank You for slowing us down. We thank You for providing us our daily needs — no more and no less. We thank You for being with us, listening to us, walking with us on this journey. We thank You for the support of our family and friends … for seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary — sunrises, sunsets, flowers, kids laughing, adventures, good news amid the bad news. We also know we can come to You with our concerns and they will be heard. Through Christ all things are possible. We lift up those family members and friends who are battling various physical, emotional, financial, career or spiritual issues and ask not for Your guidance and healing (although that would be welcomed) but to keep reminding us we are not alone in our battles. Specifically we lift up Ryan Maddi and all those who enter the bounds of marriage, Julius, Christy, Andrew, George, Susan, Mark, David, and Jim. We pray for the families of all those You have called home. We grieve … You celebrate. We pray for obedience to Your Will so Your “Son” Light shines through us through the power of the Spirit. And we come to You through the confidence of the words taught by Your Son Jesus.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Keep your joys and concerns coming. They have been and will be included during my prayer time and I trust they will be on your lips as well as you approach the altar. All it takes is a couple of keystrokes under the “Contact Me” button on the top bar {or to the right if you’re not a follower yet}. I hope it becomes your best friend as you navigate around the site so we can all be viable prayer warriors. You can also comment or reach me at wisdomfromafather@gmail.com.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: What you DO is today far more important than what we PLAN to do tomorrow. — Jack Hyles.

  1. Prayers are what I live on now,
    up here against the wall.
    I keep going, and this is how:
    God simply hears y’all.
    My job is to witness grace
    from the depths of hell,
    and with your help, from this place
    there’s so much I can tell.
    I’ve learned of love that doesn’t quit
    and that quitting’s not for me.
    I won’t let down friends never met
    who deserve to see the victory.
    It’s not that I can outrun death,
    but I can praise God to dying breath.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
