Last Friday we talked about the Powerful Prayer Devotional – God’s Handin our Devotional and praying Psalm 91. We first read the Psalm in NIV as it was written and then we read the version that Lory, the author of the Devotional had written in First Person, personalizing the Psalm. Today, we discuss Powerful Prayer Devotional – Peace, Provision, Confession, and Praise from our Devotional. Lory, who writes our Devotional, continues to discuss praying and talking with God and how she uses speaking God’s Word through Psalm 23 as a prayer of peace and provision. I have added in prayers of confession and praise that she did not cover in her Devotional.
On Tuesday we discussed the Powerful Prayer Devotional – Powerful and Effective Prayerin our Devotional and James 5:16 meant according to Lory in the Devotional and also I discuss James 5:13-18 in context giving a fuller, complete description historically of these verses. Today, we discuss Powerful Prayer Devotional – God’s Hand from our Devotional. Lory, who writes our Devotional, discusses praying and talking with God and how she uses speaking God’s Word through Psalm 91 (NIV) as a prayer of protection over her family as a way of communicating with God directly. Let’s see what she how she does this.
I wasn’t much in the mood to write tonight so I thought I would show some quotes on caring from the internet. It is such an important part of our character to be caring toward others. We start learning to care while children, taught by our parents and teachers. As we grow older, we learn from other adults that we come in contact with and other children as well. If we are lucky enough to have a pet or two, we can act caring towards that dog or cat or guinea pig while playing and caring for them.
Anyway, I thought the quotes that I found on caring said it much better than I could.
If we were having coffee… and I was sharing my today, I’d tell you that it has been a rough week for me. I am struggling with depression this week with feelings of restlessness and wandering mind and difficulty sleeping. I can’t seem to concentrate very well and added to that is the fact that I found out my rescue dog, Guinness, has cancer. I brought him home to care for him and nothing aggressive will be done. I’m just going to keep him comfortable. He has several skin tumors and I don’t want him to go through surgery if it won’t cure the disease. I just want him pain-free.
If we were having coffee… I’d ask how your week has been for you? I’d also remind you that God loves you every day, not just because it is Sunday. God is my mainstay in all my troubles, for sure. I don’t know what I would do without Him. My favorite verse is “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 45:10)
If we were having coffee… I’d tell you my weekend was quiet with the grandchildren playing and having a sleepover in the living room with their parents last night. They had popcorn and rented “Utopia” and were up until 1 am. Not me, though…I was in bed long before that but woke up at 5 am when the sun was just coming up. All was quiet and just me and the cat, Elvis were watching the birds at the birdfeeder out my window.
