The Scriptures were written for our instruction and inspiration. My heart has been
strangely warmed as I have spent a great amount of time reflecting upon the words
the Apostle Paul shared with the Philippians...Chapter 4:4-9.
I begin this prayer by asking that you fill each of us with joy that can come only from
You. May each day we rejoice over the experience of Your presence with us and the
purpose You give us for the living of our days.
We ask that others will see we are considerate of them as a result of our walk with You.
As we follow You, help us to watch for Your coming with expectation.
Father, give us the wisdom and strength to live the words You shared with Paul. Thank
You that through the ages these words have been preserved for those who follow You.
Our Lord and Savior, help us to follow Your instructions found in Your Word:
Don't worry about anything.
Pray about everything.
Tell our Heavenly Father what we need.
Thank You Lord for all You have done for us.
Thank You for Your peace that far exceeds our understanding.
Thank You for the comfort that comes knowing Your peace will guard our hearts and
minds as we live in Christ Jesus.
Lord, give us the determination to fix our thoughts on what is true, honorable and right,
pure, lovely, and admirable. Help us to think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Please Lord, empower us to put into practice Your teachings that came from the Apostle Paul, knowing that Your peace is a peace not given by the world, but a peace that only You can give. Amen.
