Our Daily Prayer


our prayer - TAIF

What part does prayer play? 

I have been thinking a lot about prayer…. I was asking some questions with friends in my FB group Eternity Matters

1) How do we talk to people, loved ones, friends and family in a meaningful way about Jesus? About eternity? About Jesus coming back? 2) How do you share with someone that Jesus is our Saviour if they don’t think they need salvation?

The answer seems to point to prayer…. which could seem to some to be a passive answer! 

But is it a passive answer? Or is it a powerful answer?

Ask and it shall be given to you….

The effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much….

Prayer changes the spiritual landscape and builds the framework

before we see the physical landscape change!

Have you seen people come to faith through prayer?

How do you pray for your friends and family? Do you have a list?
What have you learnt?

I have been wondering how to fit everything into my life? I need to pray more! So I have been coming up with a prayer that could encompass everything and everyone. A prayer that I might pray daily and then as God leads me to pray specifically for other people.

My mum was a prayer warrior, she was down on her knees every day interceding for people with all kinds of needs. It seems to me that prayer is the precursor to miracles! Just think about it like that!

Do I pray enough? The answer clear and simple is NO!

~Our Daily Prayer~

Father we come to you in your precious Name. Lord we bring our needs before you, and we know that you indeed hear our prayers. Lord your heart is for all the people’s of the world, no matter where they are, no matter who they are, there is nothing that prevents your very great love from touching them and changing their lives. Lord right now we bring to you our families and friends. Lord you know each one by name.

We bring our parents, our grandparents, husbands and wives, our sons and daughters,  our sons and daughters, our brothers and sisters, our aunts and uncles, our cousins, nephews and nieces to you. Father we bring before you our neighbours, our communities, we bring people of every denomination to you. We bring our friends and all their families, their children, everyone from the local shop keepers, teachers, all our emergency service workers, cleaners, and maintenance people, all medical people, engineers, our employers, our co-workers, we bring people in every walk of life and in every corner of the world to you. We bring professional people and intellectual people, people with great minds, the great thinkers and we also bring simple people to you.

Lord we bring to you ever poor person, every rich person, every homeless person, Lord we bring every person that has some kind of disability – no matter how severe, we bring all service men and women, we bring our governments and our politicians to you, we bring religious leaders to you and community leaders to you.

Father we bring criminals to you, we bring terrorists to you – no one is above or below your free gift of salvation. We bring the hurt, the lame, the deaf, we bring even those in comatose states and in any kind of institution. Lord we will not forget addicts and recovering addicts and the mentally ill, all people who are degraded and misunderstood. Lord we bring the young and the old, we bring the sick and the well, we bring both people who don’t believe and people who do believe to you.

Lord we ask that you will open every ear, every eye, every heart. Father no one is beyond coming to know You.

Lord you are the creator of the world, the Alpha and the Omega, you are the beginning and the end….

We pray that you would stir the hearts of all your sons and daughters, awaken them from the things they are doing and prompt them now to share your very great love with those around them. Give them a taste of the urgency of your love wanting to meet people where they are at.

Lord we thank you that you send the Holy Spirit out now to minister to every single person, all around the world, let there be a softening of people’s hearts, show them the need that they have for you and that the world has for you.

We pray for every person that is falling into any kind of deception and false sense of security that they would see, that they would hear… Now is the time of salvation!

In Jesus Name Amen!

MyPsalms 25-27 ~ Letters to God


  MYPSALMS 25-27…

I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!

My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”

MyPsalms 25-27 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)

I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page

MyPsalm 25

Day 25
Read Psalm 25 in your own bible or here: Psalm 25
 

Dear Lord,

The world is happening in a rush all around me. I think it feels like chaos. To most of us that is what its like Lord… chaos.

But in amongst the seeming chaos your divine order for our lives exists, and it is beautifully unfolding and although we may be in a rush and we feel every moment of time slip by, you know each and every day and things are happening as you would will them to.

Lord shine your light on the path we should be taking today. Illuminate the way that will take us right into the places you would have us.

Bring us right up to the doors that you would have us walk through and show us where the door bell is! You are the doorway to life.

Bring us to your table, let us sit with you and find refreshing and sustenance, and as we eat together a feast of your words, let us be nourished and instructed by your voice and heart.

Open the windows of our life and let your freshness blow through and clean away the stagnation and stillness, may the aroma of your presence fill every part of our lives and make it new like fresh linen.

Help us to sweep away the old things, the tired things, the things that are holding us back, the things that are in the way, the things that are done with and help us make room for what is to come.

Thank Lord you that in the chaos you still restore our pathway, you nourish us, your give us the freshness of your presence and you sweep away the things that are broken and done with to make room for the new.

Amen

 

MyPsalm 26

Day 26

Dear Lord,
I have found that I have walked into a new space, its like coming into a clearing after being in overgrow forest. It’s the place between trust and control. It’s so easy to say I trust you Lord and its a whole other thing to TRUST you…When I picture this, actually trying to stop doing some of the things that I try to control it presents a slightly more challenging picture to me than when I just say the words.

But I am at a wonderful crossroad just now Lord and I thank you that you have brought me to it. I actually feel a sense of relief and a need to relinquish control of things that I would normally hold on tightly to. I have a sense that to let you make the plans mean the plans will be best for me in the long-term.

There are a few things on my mind and some of them that used to seem hard to let go of seem much easier to give over now and there are other areas, areas which I cannot control, which are heartbreaking… I wish I could make things better in these places but I can’t… Something inside me wants to control or direct these situation but I have to take my hands off and step back and simply pray and commit each one to YOUR keeping. I must KNOW that even though some things don’t initially turn out how we think they are best that your will is the best for all of us in any situation

Lord help me to explore this space and to find my way through it and to always lean more on trusting you than controlling parts of my life.

Amen

Dear Lord,


If my hope is not in you Lord then where could it be? I find no hope
 other than in you alone.
Hope is the vital ingredient of my life. Without hope what is there?

Lord I do not always understand my life. I do not understand why things happen.
But Father I will trust in you. You created me and you formed me and you gave me free will.
In giving us all that, the door was opened to all manner of things but you had to give us free will.

I have come to the conclusion that regardless of whether life is hard or easy. Whether the roads are filled with obstacles or the paths are smooth that things will turn out for my good.

And Lord in regards to the hard things that I have experienced, the things I may go through, the things I watch friends and family go through. I do not understand but I know that you do not cause evil to happen.

Lord preserve our life, make the way through for us, strengthen us, help us keep our eyes on you, remind us to pray Lord, to stand against the work of the devil and declare your goodness in our lives till we see it.

Amen

 

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!

Dear Lord,

I have been listening to You. I’ve heard your voice clearly in my mind these last few days, quite a few times.

It goes like this… some crazy thought pops into my head… negative… “I bet they think…” “What if they…”
These thoughts go on and on all day in our minds and we barely hear them… but this last few days I hear them, and then I hear You calling to me when these thoughts invade the quiet space of my mind.

‘You don’t have to listen to that Cam!’, ‘Really how do you know that’s the truth?’ ‘Are you sure about that judgment?’ ”No stop, its not true, you might be wrong, don’t assume!’

I’ve been hearing your direction Lord and its a direction in the way of peace, hope, love, empowerment.

The most blessed thing is that I am HEARING YOU…. and my response is ‘Yes Lord you are RIGHT, of course you are right!’

My revelation is that I DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE PATH OF THOSE THOUGHTS… they lead to fear, worry, rejection, hurt, bitterness, anger… and those results may actually be stemming from thoughts that just aren’t true!!

My empowerment is to LISTEN to you… ‘YES Lord you are right! I hear you. I want to listen to your wisdom!’ And as a result you will give me freedom from these snares that are traps and lair’s.

I don’t need to waste my energy on these pursuits and trains of thought. When I HEAR you and LISTEN I can change the direction of my day, the peace can remain in my heart and I don’t have to feel miserable…

Help me LISTEN and HEAR every day and Lord please speak loudly when I am day dreaming!

Amen

 

MyPsalm 23

Day 23
Read Psalm 23 in your own bible or here: Psalm 23

Dear Lord,

How can my heart not sing your praise? Your goodness overwhelms me.You know just the perfect solutions. You make glorious provisions.
You give generous gifts. You shower lavish love on us.
You divinely connect us. You always forgive us.

As I look at your creation my heart leaps. It’s almost as if I touch your hand when your creation and my heart make contact. How can I look around me at the wonder of life and give that glory to another?

As I look at all you have made, I sense your presence is ALL around me.
Every creation is a signpost from you saying ‘”Look I am right here!”

I am in awe of you.
I am in awe of all you do.
I am in awe of all you have made.
I am in awe of your love.
I am in awe of your sacrifice
I am in awe of your patience, that you wait for us.
I am in awe of your plan, that you don’t rush us.
I am in awe of your majesty and greatness and your humility and gentleness.

My heart sings your praise! Thank you for your goodness!

Amen

MyPsalm 24

Day 24
Read Psalm 24 in your own bible or here: Psalm 24

 

 

Dear Lord,Lord you carried our griefs. You carried our grief and sorrow to the cross with you and you bore them.
When things make me sad, I remember this Lord that you are intimately acquainted with all these weights and feelings.

Theres are things causing me grief right now, and also things that grieve me.
And so, in the midst of this I look to you and your strength, purpose and promises.

You remind me to not let my heart be troubled and so this is my first thought.
You remind me that you know the end from the beginning. That makes your plans the safest.
You remind me that you are my Father and you want what is best for me and my family.
You remind me that you completely understand and know how I feel.
You remind me that you are living this with me, but how much more so than I!

For you surely must be grieved every single day at what you see.
You see and know each person and their grief.
But then your heart of Love is greater than anything.
And it is because of your very great love that you hold back until the time appointed to make all things right.
And in the meantime, you are waiting and holding on and you give us time to come to you.

Your promise in all of this is that you will turn our mourning into dancing, you will turn our sorrow into joy.
You have walked this road, you have traveled this path, you will get us through until you come again.

Amen

Hope you enjoy the journey!
