Everything from Prayables Week of March 11, 2017
Remember, failure is an event, not a person.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and don’t give up.
You are loved for all you are and all you are yet to be.
Look back and thank God. Look forward and trust God.
Wherever you are, plant your feet, open eyes, be completely there, be aware.
God, help me find new ways to love the same old loved ones.
There are two means of refuge from your misery, dogs and cats.
A bullfighter is daring and brave. The bull is feisty and fierce. Two together make for a passionate spectacle. May you be blessed to have fight in your soul and passion on your side. Fight for what you know to be right. What you believe to be true. Fight for the glory of God.
It will take a while for the hurt to heal. But heal you will. It won’t be tomorrow, this week, or next, but the memory does fade. The one thing you can do to get instant gratification…is to forgive. May you be blessed with relief. A grudge is like a cancer, it brings pain, worry, and exhaustion. Just let it go and you’ll see a new you — healthy, happy, and whole once more.
The true test of your character is what you do when no one is watching. May you be blessed with integrity. Be good. Be honest. Be trust worthy. God entrusted you to preserve the values of the Bible through courageous kindness and decency. With or without eyes upon you, behave accordingly.
One small positive thought in the morning can change an entire day. What’s yours today? May you be blessed with a beautiful picture in your mind’s eye. One that you aspire to. One that you remember fondly. One that brings you joy.
Angels look different than they did in the old days. Messengers of God have changed their get-up. They’re rocking the fashion of everyday people and show up in your life in the most unexpected ways. May you be blessed to welcome the angels who are earthly in appearances, yet other-worldly in their souls.
Wandering thoughts are so very human. It separates you from the critters that roam close to the ground and brings you together with the One who floats above. May you be blessed with Godly thoughts that surprise you without warning. In an instant you’re transported from the task at hand to an ethereal one, communing with your Lord. How fortunate to be you.
Lord, You gave me 24 hours each day, and I thank You. I do not lack for time, but I do need Your direction. Show me Your priorities and I will make them mine. Guide me down paths I would not usually take. Help me make bold choices and see me through the process of follow up and completion. Praise to You most giving of purpose. amen
This is my prayer to You, my God. May my heart be open to every broken soul, to orphaned life, to every stumbler wandering unknown and groping in shadows. Bless my eyes, purify me to see beauty trise in the spirit of humanity. Deepen and broaden my senses to take from this flowering world the secret of life. Let not my spirit wither and shrivel in its thirst for You. Praise to the Holy One, oh so Divine.
Dear God, It is so hard for me to forgive the people in my life who have done me wrong. Help me to endure the hurt and get over it. Transform the anger to love. Resentment to respect. Bless me with compassion and I will begin to understand why. For me and for them I pray: May we all be good and fair to one another, and never again know pain, sorrow, or disappointment. amen
Dear God, I pray that each person find You in their own way. That they are profoundly moved by You. That hearts are warmed by Your love. May every seeker find a presence of peace so strong, that it cannot be denied. Let Your light shine on those in darkness. Amen
Dear God, let me not be discouraged by my failings. Let em take heart from all that is good and noble in my character. Keep me from falling victim to my own self-criticism. Grace me with confidence that I may be secure in serving others in love. Amen
O Lord my God teach my heart where and how to seek you, where and how to find you. You have made me
and remade me, You have bestowed on me all the good things I possess, and still I do not know you. I have not yet done that for which I was made. Teach me to seek you for I cannot seek you unless you teach me or find you unless you show yourself to me. Let me seek you in my desire, let me desire you in my seeking. Let me find you by loving you, let me love you when I find you. St. Anslem

I am totally safe and surrounded by love, light, peace and joy.
On particularly rough days when I’m sure I can’t possibly endure, I will remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far, is 100% and that’s pretty good.
I will allow God to take charge this day. I will walk with God and match His pace, one foot in front of the other, in due time. I will be strong enough to take His lead, and compliant enough to be ready for it.
Everything I need will come at just the right time.
Today I will draw a line in the sand and have the discipline not to cross it.
I will not only say “God help me” I will add, “God, through me help others.”
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. Isaiah 40:31
Arise, walk about the land through its length and breadth; for I will give it to you. Genesis 13:17
Anyone can find the dirt in someone, be the one who finds the gold. Proverbs 11:27
Be joyful in hope. Patient in affliction. Faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
The eyes of all look to You expectantly, and You give them their food when it is due. You give it openhandedly, feeding every creature to its heart’s content. Psalm 145:15-16
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. Philippians 4:12

Thank you all so very much. It is so hard for me right now, on top of the problems that I am dealing with at work, I just found out that a very dear friend just died, and on Friday I was betrayed by someone who I thought was a really good friend. I just don’t know how much more I can take. Please, please continue to pray for me, I just don’t know how long I can take it. I just want to give up, but something keeps telling me not to. Thank you for your encouraging words, you just don’t know how much it means to me. I am truly grateful to you and everyone for all the prayers and encouragement. May I ask that you please keep me in prayer? I know that this is just temporary. -Karen
Please pray for many needs I have. To be spiritually in tune with my Savior, be able to deal with my loneliness, being able to miraculously reconcile relationship with BKM or move on, be focused on my work and to fight my addictions and feel loved. I need to be able to make wise decisions in God’s guidance. Amen -Vlado A.
Please pray for me. I’m having a really hard time adjusting to my empty nest. I’m a single mother with depression and anxiety issues. I feel that my kids and everyone else has moved on with their lives and I’m stuck in a rut that I can’t get out of. I’m off work now for a broken shoulder and I’m so alone. I cry every day. I’ve been praying but it seems that God has other things to do. My life is unbearable. Please, please pray. -E.F.

Please pray for my finances, my husband died last year on March 10, 2017 and I have been struggling ever since to hold to our home of 21 years. So far, I have been doing good, I took on a part time job, but, some other expenses came up and now I am one month behind on my mortgage. I need GOD to step in and perform a miracle. I am to start receiving some financial help but it is scheduled to start in September. I need the help today. Will you pray for a financial break through for me? Thank you. -anonymous
My friend moved to a new home. Satu has had a difficult season and he has a history of mental illness. Could you please pray that a brighter future would be in store for him? God bless you. -Henry
