Lets Pray! Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all of your guidance and for giving us the strength to do your work. Please watch over our families and friends and protect them in these troubling times. As we live our lives in your image we ask that you gently guide us to salvation and remind us of your will. We ask these things in your name, Amen.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I watched as a fisherman fell out of his damaged boat and swam for his life, I sent another boat out to him, to retrieve him from the water for it was clear he tired and his swimming was getting weak, As I looked over and listened I heard his voice say “I do not need your help, I have prayed to God and he will take care of me”,
The boat moved on and the fisherman continued to struggle, I listened, and again I sent another boat to help him from the water, but to my amazement he refused the second boat stating the same, “I believe in the Lord above and he will save me”.
He is with me now and I have explained my ways to him!
Dear heavenly father, thank you for the grace you have shown to us and for the strength to follow in your example, for being the one true direction in our lives and for guiding our hands to help those in need. Your light is all-true and is the hope in our broken world. I ask you help those in need and bring salvation to those who find their way to you and restore faith in those who have strayed. I ask these things in your name oh Heavenly Father. Amen!
