Morning Prayer, Monday,

SET THE EXAMPLE

“Jesus set before us a perfect example of how we are to deal with people who falsely accuse or mistreat us.”

As Jesus hung on Calvary with insult after insult coming at him and even when he stood before those accusing him, the Bible says he never said a mumbling word. Many of us if were being hit with insults and people lying on us, we would not have been able to stay quiet. I have been there before and when I should have kept my mouth shut, I shot back a response. I have learned since those days that as a child of God, I am called to set the example for others to follow. As human beings, that is not always easy because sometimes people will come for you or someone you love hard, and your first thought was to let it go but what happens when they won’t stop?

Well, this was the case with Jesus. From the moment they grabbed him in the Garden of Gethsemane, it was one insult and lie about him after another but Jesus handled it well. I am working hard to be more like Christ and when someone comes for me, to not only handle it well, but to set the example for others to follow. People will be watching you. If you have made it known that you are a Christian, people expect a certain standard of living from you, even if they themselves are not living it.

As Jesus hung on the cross between two thieves he did finally say something back but only to the criminal who defended him and asked Jesus to remember him when he came into his kingdom. So, this week, commit to “set the (good) example.”

Prayer:
Father God, when others speak against me, lie on me or say bad things about me, please put a guard over my mouth that I may set the example for others to follow, like Christ. Amen

Scripture;
1 Timothy 4:12

12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.

Morning Prayer, Saturday,

ENJOY THE SIMPLE THINGS

"Don’t miss a great season in your life wishing you had more, complaining about what you don’t have."

The real joy in life is in the simple things—making memories with your family, riding your bikes together, watching the sunset with your spouse, or staring up at the stars at night. You don’t have to have big vacations or lots of money to have fun. Learn to enjoy the simple things in life.

Could it be that you’re at the right place for the season that you’re in, but you’re not enjoying it? Maybe if you would step back and see it from a new perspective, you would realize that God has you in the palms of His hands. He knows where you are, what you like, and what you don’t like. Instead of living discontented, frustrated, always wishing you were somewhere else, embrace the place where you are. See the good. Be grateful for what you have.

Prayer:
Father, thank You for being the God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Help me find real joy in the beauty of this moment and in life’s simple things. I declare that I will embrace the place where I am and be grateful for what I have. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture:
1 Timothy 6:17

17 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.

Morning Prayer, Friday,

HE COULD HAVE SAID NO

“If you want to please God, say yes to no.”

Judas finds himself standing in front of the religious leaders selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. In the days leading up to when he made the decision to sell out his friend, he had time to think about what he would do. We have all been there. You contemplated the choice you were about to make whether it was a good one or not. We had the choice to say “No, I can’t do it,” but in some cases we pushed ahead. Judas had the choice to say “No, I won’t do that to my friend Jesus,” but he went ahead anyway and did it only to regret it deeply later.

God is so merciful that He gives to us all the free-will choice to say “No.” We don’t always make the right choice but there are times when we do. Even when we take the wrong leap and go back to the Father, He is merciful and just to forgive us. Judas did not say "No."

Here is Jesus is in the Garden of Gethsemane praying “Father, please remove this cup from me.” He was about to go to Calvary and hang on a cross for an entire world, many of whom hated him. What a heavy burden to bear.

He could have said “No,” but his love for the Father and for us was so strong and intense, he just could not do it. I’m thankful for that. So very thankful!

Prayer:
Father God, I am thankful that even though he could have said it, Jesus did not say "No." Amen

Scripture:
Matthew 26:39

39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

Morning Prayer, Thursday,

DON’T STOP BELIEVING

“Great things happen to those who don't stop believing, trying, learning, and being grateful.”

Was having a conversation with someone on my job yesterday about all of the people who have had to re-adjust their lives because of this pandemic. People have been laid off or lost their job, however you want to call it. As I said to him, sometimes when we find our backs up against the wall, we become creative in finding a way out. Instead of becoming discouraged and frustrated, many of these people shifted their career in a totally different direction. My conversation with this co-worker was “We are all smarter than we think.” He laughed and agreed. Think about it. God created us in His image. We may not be omnipotent or omnipresent knowing everything and being everywhere, but God did make us intelligent beings.

Actually many are in fact finding out they are smarter than they think. When you follow God, He will never leave you hanging. The door to the job behind you may have shut but turn around. When you do, suddenly your mind opens to other possibilities. If you can just believe that there is another way out, I believe God will honor that and show it to you. I read a story about a young man who went out in his boat and it capsized. The weather was not 70 or 80 degrees. It was in the dead of winter. Most would think he would have died in those frigid temperatures and by all standards, he should have, but he believed. The woman with the issue of blood could have been like many others and died in her sickness, but she believed. Blind Bartimaeus a beggar who sat by the road as Jesus passed by cried out loudly asking for mercy. People told him to be quiet but he got louder. He could have shut up, but he believed. Whatever you do, don’t give up believing.

Prayer:
Father God, when I find my back against the wall, instead of allowing fear and frustration in, I will open my mind to faith. Amen

Scripture:
Psalm 112:6-7

6 Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered.

7 They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.

Mark 5:36

36 But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”

Morning Prayer, Wednesday,

HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU

“People may leave you but God never will.”

For 400 years, the Israelites cried out for God to send a deliverer and finally that day came. One would think they would be on board with whatever the plan was that God had given to Moses to get them out of Egypt, but instead they poked holes in it. You see, they found fault at every turn. Moses became frustrated as one would be when you are doing your best to help someone and they are not trying to help themselves. Many of us have been on that road. Whether it was a wayward child, a friend, co-worker or whomever you were trying to help when they refused your help time and again, it can become frustrating to the point you want to give up on them.

Moses may have wanted to walk away from them, but God never walks away from us. He is always somewhere close by even when we push Him away at every turn. You know how little babies are when you are trying to help them eat and they think they can do it themselves, and so they push your hand away? That is how we are with God sometimes when we think, “I got this.” God is patient though. That is because He knows deep inside of us is a better person. He knows deep inside of us is the obedient and kind person so He hangs in there.

Why, because He unconditionally loves us and will never forsake us. Man may get frustrated and turn his back on you but the God that I serve, never will.

Prayer:
Father God, there have been times when I have not been my best self that others wanted to give up on me, but not You. Thank you. Amen

Scripture:
Deuteronomy 31:6

6 So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

MORNING PRAYERS, Tuesday,

LORD, I AM SO GRATEFUL

"Count your blessings before you complain and be grateful for there are many who wish to be where you are now."

As I sat watching the news seeing the miles and miles of cars in a part of Texas where people were in line to get food, it made me think about just how grateful and blessed I am. If I wanted to, I could find much to complain about but looking at what others are going through, I have no right. God has blessed me to retain my job, have food on my table, clothes on my back and shoes on my feet. I know life is not perfect because some days, you just will go through some things but all in all, as the song says, “I won’t (and can’t) complain. I have found myself on the verge of complaining about a situation and then I remember those on the front line at the hospitals, and those essential workers out there who tirelessly put their lives on the line. Some have said, “That’s their job.” Yes, they did accept the job, but what they are going through right now is above and beyond the norm.

What I pray for each and every one of them is that God will cover them and when they get on the other side of this, that He will bless them indeed. They could have walked away, but they didn’t. I am so grateful for their commitment to the call on their life and the many thousands they have helped by the grace of God, to make it through. I pray for you. I pray for you.

Prayer:
Father God, thank You so much for blessing me to have the basic necessities of life. I know that the person without food, shelter or a job could have been me. Forgive me for at any time complaining. Amen

Scripture:
Psalm 107:1

1 Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

Ephesians 1:16

16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly,

MORNING PRAYERS, Monday,

GOD'S MERCY

"God's mercy is greater than any of mistakes and that gives me hope."

In Luke 18, there is the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. Both men went up to the temple to pray. What is different about them was the attitude in which they prayed. The Pharisee thought because he was a religious leader that he was in right standing with God and had no sins. He probably went because it was a ritual. He was quite sure that because of he was, he had a place in heaven already. The tax collector did not see himself as sinless. In fact, we are told that averting his eyes, he beat his chest as he looked up to God. His prayer was, "Lord, have mercy on me a sinner." As I read this it made me think how sometimes as Christians we do become ritualistic. For so many years church has been a part of our lives that we get to a point where we may simply be going through the motions.

Every once and again, maybe like this tax collector, we should humbly come before God and ask for His mercy. I don't know about any of you but I know there have been things that I have said or done that I need to ask for God's mercy.

Prayer:
Father God, please have mercy on me a sinner. Amen

Scripture:
Luke 18:9-14

Morning Prayer, Saturday

PUSHED INTO OUR PURPOSE

Sometimes God will let us be uncomfortable for a dark, difficult period so He can bless us later on. He’ll close a door, which we don’t like, but later on He’ll open a bigger door. God is not as concerned about our comfort as He is about our purpose. There are times when He will shake things up to force us to change. His goal is not to make our life miserable; He’s pushing us into our purpose.

Not every closed door is a bad thing. If God had not shut that door, we would have been satisfied to stay where we were. Not every time a person walks away from us is a tragedy. God knows we won’t move forward without a push. You have too much potential, too much talent, too much in you to get stuck where you are. He’ll put you in situations that make you stretch, make you grow, make you spread your wings.

Prayer:
Father, thank You that You know what’s best for me, and You’re pushing, stretching, and enlarging me for a reason. Thank You for closed doors as well as open doors. I believe that You have something bigger, something better, something more rewarding up in front of me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture:
Proverbs 19:21

21 You can make many plans, but the Lord ’s purpose will prevail.

MORNING PRAYERS, Friday,

THIS IS AN ENLARGING SEASON

"If we would allow God to do a work in us there would be no limit to His enlargement of us."

Since the Stay-In-Place was initiated, and I have been working from home, the small amount of exercise that I was getting has diminished. A few days ago, I decided to set a 45 min timer on my phone and when it went off, I would get up and stretch my legs, walk in place, etc. Well, the phone rang which turned off the timer and I forgot all about it until about two hours later when talking with someone on the phone and they brought up having gained weight and I thought about the timer. Okay then. All too often we don’t think a lot about this temple (our bodies) that God has given us, until something goes wrong with it.

One of the things I have heard a number of different pastors say is that right now is a time for us to shift our thinking on some things. Now is the time for us to make some changes and at the same time open our minds up to greater possibilities. Some of you have had ideas about writing a book, losing some weight, starting a business, a ministry or whatever. Don't waste the time you have been given. Maybe you can focus a little more on your dreams and desires during this stay-in-place. Maybe you can walk a few laps around your house if you don’t want to do it outside (definitely). Maybe you can read that book you have put off because you were too busy. The possibilities are endless of things we can do during this stay-in-place season.

When you come out on the other side, who will you be or have become? I have been working on me spiritually. Maybe not so much physically (but that will change). It has to.

Prayer:
Father God, as I sit here in this season of my life seeming to be stalled, help me to use this time to allow You to enlarge and expand me. Amen

Scripture:
1 Chronicles 4:10

10 He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.

MORNING PRAYERS, Thursday

I NEED GOD

"Dear God, I know now I am not strong enough on my own. I need you everyday, every moment, every second that I breathe."

As life goes along smoothly with no bumps in the road, it is easy for us to get comfortable and find ourselves moving away from the very thing we need to stay near. I know in my own life this has been the case at certain times. Life was good. Sure, I went to church and I prayed but it became a kind of me just "going through the motions." I didn't even realize it was so until a storm hit. That was when I realized that my connection to God had become a little lax.

What I am grateful and thankful for is that God is so loving that even if we have somewhat fallen away, God is there. When you cry out, God is there. Remember when the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land kind of got lax with God. He had to put a little pressure on them to get them back in line and even then some of them still was not on board. I am trying and especially these days, in my walk with the Lord to stay as close to Him as possible. I have realized in this life that as intelligent as I might be, or as wise as someone may tell me that I am, or no matter how much money I have in the bank, without God, I won't make it through this life. I need God. We all do.

Prayer:
Father God, there is no point in my life on this earth whether I am up or down that I do not need You. Amen

Scripture:
Hebrews 4:16

16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
