Hope your'e doing well!
This time we're praying about… GOSSIP!
So What's wrong with gossip you ask? Well, it ruins crowds, it ruins someone's reputation. Oh boy. (If you don't know what gossip is, there is a helpful article on gossip. Of course this may defer for all, but what I feel is powerful in this article is when the author says that we can look at gossiping as a form of planting seeds and how we reap what we sow. Isn't that incredible! (well..not incredible incredible, but you know what I mean. It's quite powerful and makes us, hopefully, think twice before we gossip) ;-)
Now, I hear someone already say, "But...We are human right?" Yes, you're right. We are. But still, let's be careful when we talk about other people, especially if we don't have all the facts. So what do we do you ask? PRAY. and then PRAY some more. That's what we can do. It's tough to resist running to friend or spouse, but PRAY first before you do that so you can save some time of heartache.
God loves His children and He doesn't want us talking about them in a bad light. He shows us certain things so we can PRAY for them. If we see person X doing something, PRAY instead of trying to find the next gossip group to tell this news to discuss it. It's not beneficial and it's hurtful. So what if other's do it too? You won't because you're different remember? You're His Child… ;)
Reminder about the prayer list: You can download the PDF list below. Again, I encourage you to take this to God, be led in prayer, ask Him what He is saying to you during this. You can also use the Bible verses to format the prayer as well, or just to meditate on.
Happy Prayers Fam!! Here's to better lives! ;-) Until next time my loves!
How are you?
I know that's a loaded question, but I pray that whatever you may be feeling this very moment, the next moments, and the moments you've had before all this, that God is keeping you always. I trust that He is.
Life can be complicated. As Jesus said, we WILL have trouble in this world, but take heart, He has OVERCOME the world! Hallelujah! We praise the Lord for that. I have to be reminded sometimes of just how much God is in control, even when I'm being attacked by my enemies. This verse makes perfect sense: "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world and all who live in it"-Psalm 24:1
So funny how the Psalms become all that much sweeter when we are faced with challenges.
I read that Psalm, and got understanding that God really IS in control. The earth is the LORD's! HE created it, HE formed it, HE knows what's going on, so He will control what's going on around you. He'll never give you more than you can bear, and not only that, but just like in Job 42:10, He will vindicate you from the enemies attacks, and THEN He will give you a DOUBLE portion for what you went through! Amen to that! How many believe it today? Amen!
Thank you Jesus for rescuing us from the enemies' attacks, we praise your Name today, Amen, Hallelujah!
Don't forget to download the prayer list! Like each one, I encourage you to take this to God, be led in prayer, ask Him what He is saying to you during this. You can also use the Bible verses to format the prayer as well, or just to meditate on.
Thanks and God bless,
Hope your week has been going well! I thought about posting the prayer lists every week, but I didn't get the chance to post one last week, so we'll see how it goes! Maybe bi-weekly? Who knows! haha! But either way, I'm excited to get this one up for ya! Hope you enjoy it and you pray with faith that your friends (old and to come!) will be transformed by God's goodness! Amen!
Chat to you soon and love you always,
This week we are praying for our family!
I have uploaded the document, which you can access below by downloading the PDF.
Allow the verses to speak to you, and ask God to lead you in prayer for each category.
Happy praying and may God be guiding you along your prayer journey!
