Getting to Know the Lord

Lord,

I truly want to get to know You.  There is so much wrong with the world.  So there must me something wrong with me.  Well, I still have sin in me.  I will not contend that I am perfect, for that is a lie unto itself.  I need to know how to make an examination and take a good look at myself.  How do I repent of those things I need repenting of?  I ask for wisdom and discernment in this manner, and I thank You in advance for said wisdom and discernment.


In Jesus' name,

Amen

Questions that I need to answer

Lord,

How do I end becoming obsessed with losing weight?  I need to actually do it.  Where do I begin?  Why do I wish to do this?  I just have so many questions that I wish to answer.  Help me, Lord.  Help me to see that being obsessed hasn't done me any favors.

Sincerely,

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you...

Heavenly Father,

Thank You that I am saved.  I held on to the promise of salvation.  Thank You.  Today, however, as well as yesterday, I sadly did not make the case that I am a Christian.  I found myself more with other things than with You.  I am sorry.  I would like to change that.  I admit that I have not always taken things seriously or as seriously as I would have liked.  I have broken my promise to live for You and serve You and I have not done so.  I have failed You, and for that, I ask for forgiveness.  You have forgiven me and have given me a second chance and it is as if You have not.  I found myself at times even up to the past 48 hours obsessed with famous people and things that seems more important than You.  I wish now that I could go back and make changes.  I can't however.but I wish I did.  All I have are the present and the future.  Forgive me for not taking who and what I need to take more seriously.

In Jesus' name,


Amen

I need to leave.

Lord,

I need to leave.  I would love to take a break from the monotony of real life.  I just wish I had the power to change things.  I wish that there was magic in the world.  However, You didn't create magic.  You created miracles and I could use a miracle by now.  I have no money and I wish to leave. I complain about things and rarely do anything about it.  I would like to know how things can be different.  The problem is I have no idea where to begin and I need Your help.  The sad thing is I have no idea what to do and sometimes have no idea what to say. 

Help me, Lord Jesus.

In Your name, Amen

Something just isn't right

Lord,

Give me the strength that I am so in need of.  Lately, I have been too exhausted and thus, too lazy to do anything.  I need to know why.  It is for peace of mind.  I hate being exhausted, but I am reminded that it could even worse.  I need Your help in this area, Lord.

In Your name,  Lord,

Amen

The past 24 hours

Lord,

For the first time in a while, I dare have to say thank You for keeping me awake for most of the day.  I have had a day or two where I would sleep in front of a computer.  However, I was so tired it seems. I was "drunk".  I was stumbling and I could not stay awake.  I am thankful to be alive and okay.  Thank You.

Some healing

Forgive me, Father.  Today has been what has best been described as a topsy-turvy day.  I realize now that I am doing better right now.  However, I have a feeling that I will be full of regret later.  I realize however that there is also something wrong with me.  I am a person who doesn't like herself much.  I am supposed to die to myself yet I have failed to do so.  I am so sorry, Lord.  I really could use some forgiveness and healing right about now.  In Your name, Amen.

I need a change

Lord,

Sometimes I forget You.  What I mean is there are times when I am always whiny and complain.  Rarely are the times whenever I thank You.  I also don't take the time to read up and study Your word.  My plan and my goal is to read, study, meditate on Your word.  I need to spend time with You. Jesus, I ask for wisdom and counsel.  You are the ultimate Counselor.  Thank You for Your wisdom, guidance, and discernment of those matters.

Any resentment

Lord,

Teach me how to say what needs to be said to You.  You have led me to a lot to prayer.  If there is a lot of resentment of unforgiveness in my life.  It I have any unrepentant sin, I would like to know.  I realize that I feel a lot of resentment and I feel that it was a hinderance to answering my prayers.  Father, teach me how to pray.

Pouring my heart out

Lord,

I want to be with You.  I don't want to be left behind.  I have had this fear for years and finally, I not only feel better, I am better.  It is all because of You, Lord.  I want to be a witness to You.  I ask You for wisdom and guidance, since I don't have anything.  I really wish I knew I was doing in my own life.  I feel as if I cannot do anything right.  Nothing seems right for me.  It is as if everything goes wrong for me.  Maybe I brought it on my own self.  Whatever the case may be, I feel like I have been feeling insulted.  I just have no idea what to do.  It is as if I am just like a child.  That is how I have been treated.  I cannot take it anymore. 

I have been living in fear, anxiety, and intimidation, and these are the reasons why.  I need Your help.  Show me what I need to do.  I ask for wise counsel and discernment.  I am not a child.  I sometimes wonder if there is any love or respect that they have for me sometimes.  Maybe they deep down just don't like me.  I am not so sure.  In a way, I have cared what other people thought for years.  It is I have nothing of my own, no mind of my own, and no self respect. Lord, how do I change that?  How do I break those hard habits, which seem so impossible to do so?  Where do I begin?  I need You to show me and I will do it.  Help me, Lord.  In Your name,
Amen.

To be born again

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you,

Heavenly Father,

What did Jesus mean when He says that we must be born again?  I would like to know how I can be born again.  Your answers are appreciated.

In Jesus' name,

Amen

It is scary.

Jesus,

It is scary.  I should know that I am saved, but I am not sure.  I ask that You would give me discernment in this and all matters.  I admit that when it comes to especially the issue of salvation, I lack discernment.  I am not okay.  All is not well.  I just don't know what else to do.  I am scared.  Maybe I  have spent the last few years or decades with nothing but doubt.  It now makes me wonder if I have lied to myself for those years.  I have had doubts and they are quite troubling.  What is even more troubling is that I should know.  I ask that You would help me and guide me in this matter.  Your answer would be greatly appreciated.

In Your name,

Amen

Finally learned to take action

Lord,

I finally realized that it is up to me to take action.  Thank You for answering my prayers.  My goal is to lose well to lose weight and keep it off.  I am not so sure of what I want to do.  I have no idea what my limits are and what I can do right now.  If I can fix my hair, put on clothes, and take my meds, then I can take action for my health.  I realize that it could get worse.  I don't want to get to a point where I am taking risks with my health only to have to do it instead of taking action now before I get to that point.  I am beginning to take action now.  Now, all I know to do is to figure out where I need to begin.  Lord, help me to make that first step.  Thank You for everything.

The subject of fasting

God,

Where should I begin?  I have received some helpful advice today about how to live for the day and not to stay stuck in the past.  Lord, do I need to fast on this one?  I have no idea how to fast.  When and how do I fast.  I need Your wise counsel.  I ask this because I have no real idea how to truly fast.  Where should I begin?  What shall I do?

Learning to actually take action

Lord,

I complain too much.  I don't thank You as much as I should.  I don't pray like I should.  I don't read or study like I should.  Help me and teach me to do what I think or believe is hard.  There have been a lot of things that I thought are hard are actually quite easy.  The solution has always been right there. I am saddened that I did not take the time to actually be consistent enough to put it into action.  Lord, I have been overwhelmed and I still am.  I admit that even now I am still overwhelmed.  I give You my life.  I give You my all.  Forgive me for my sins.  Cleanse me from my unrighteousness.  I don't always express myself the way I desire to.  Lord, I ask for Your wise counsel, and for discernment.  I thank You for answering this request in advance.

In Your name,

Make me prayerful and make me wise

Jesus,

I am not well.  However, my heart is broken by the problems of the world.  Help me and teach me how to truly pray.  There are people who lost loved ones and others who are sick. May You remind me of these truths.  I have no idea how to intercede on their behalf.  I seem to have no clue how to pray and intercede for others.  Lord, I thank You in advance for Your answer.

Being real

Jesus,

I am finally being real and honest with You.  Thank You for allowing me as a Christian to be so real. Thank You for allowing me to pour my heart out.  Faith in my mind is a gift.  Your word says that the just shall live by faith.  My hope is that I am counted by You as a just person.  I want to be a witness to You and give You my testimony.  I believe that every Christian has a story to tell.  I am no different in that regard.  I would like to give my testimony any way I can.  I know and believe that we are living in the final hours.  It is not about accomplish, it is about souls, it is about loving and serving You.  I ask that You would remind me of this daily.

“A Prayer For Not Looking Back”

Father,

I separate myself from the distracting desires and destructive deeds that pull me back into the world where Satan rules with his power of darkness. No longer do I seek after that which gratifies only the flesh, but I find lasting satisfaction in that which feeds my soul and guides me all the days of my life. There is absolutely nothing of worth here on earth that equals the gift of salvation through the sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus Christ which also includes the bonus of eternity in heaven.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Lord,

Help me to not be so self absorbed.  Teach me how to pray for others.  Help me to intercede for others in prayer.  Help me also to be of service to others.

I pray this in Jesus' name,  Amen.

Consistency is the Key

Jesus,

May be consistent in spending time with You daily.  I seem to have a lot of work to do in this area.  Every time I sin, I feel like I am lying to You.  Every time I don't sin or make a mistake, I feel like I am also lying.  I know that I still sin, but I also realize that after today, it is as if I have not been perfected.  I need to truly "get my house in order" so to speak.  I either have been in denial or I just realized that I have gotten too comfortable.  I realize now I have no idea which is worse.  I have often felt and still sometimes feel, like a total failure.  Miraculously right now, I feel like though I have a lot to learn on my journey, I have gotten wiser the older I get.  I guess that is life.  Life is obvious in that way.  May I also be consistent in my prayer and my study of the Word.  It has been a while since I have done so.  I ask for Your wisdom and discernment on both of those issues and I thank You for the gifts of discernment and a liberal amount of wisdom.

Sincerely,

Much Thanks to the Lord

Dear God,

Thank You for allowing me the opportunity and privilege of spending time with You.  Thank You.  I don't, however, want to spend time only when I need You.  I am called to be holy and live holy.  I am supposed to be holy.  Thank You for loving me enough as a sinner to die on the cross for me.  I didn't deserve it for I was not good.  I didn't mean that I am made good or righteous because I have no sin in me.  I meant that none of us are good or deserving.  Thank You also that the Father rose You from the dead.  Thank You for saving me.  Thank You for giving me a second chance.

Realizing who God truly is

Lord,

Thank You for answering my prayers.  It is You who answers prayers.  It is You who saves, heals, and delivers.  I am calm and it is You who have made me calm.  That time, I was anxious, I prayed and You answered.  I am thankful that no matter is wrong or seems to go wrong, You are there.  I realize that I like all of us have no right to rush You or tell You how to answer our prayers.  You are the Creator and not I.  I live on Your timetable and Yours alone.  I will have to answer to You.  Help me to realize that everyday is a day to consider the truth that I no matter what I'm doing where I am, I am living for You, the One who I will have to answer to for daily I live and "for daily" will I be judged.

Thank You.  Thank You for helping me see the light and the truth.  I feel so much freer than I have in a while.  The devil is a liar.  I have however, allowed myself to be distracted. Distractions seem harmless but so is sin for a moment.  I want to continue on the path that I You started me from yesterday.  Sometimes I forget that warfare is a part of a Christian's life.  There is no easy ride.  Being a Christian is hard.  Thank You, for joy truly does come in the morning.

Jesus' wise counsel

Jesus,

Thank You for Your wisdom and Your counsel for that is Who You are.  You are Wise and You are Counselor.  I am asking for forgiveness for being so short-sighted.  I believe that You have given me the wisdom and the healing that I so needed it.  I remember when I prayed about being inspired by the woman with the issue of blood.  I guess in a way, that is how my prayer and my healing was supposed to have happened.  Like her, I have struggled with an issue that was on-going for many years, but she allowed You to be You.  You are not a doctor, but You are Healer.  You are not a counselor per se, but You are the Truth and the One who answers Prayer.  Thank You, for healing me.

In Your name,

Amen

Forgive is divine

Lord Jesus,

I thank You.  You are the only Way to the Father.  I thank You for saving me.  You have given me hope and have shown Love to me.  Thank You for dying on the cross for me.  Thank You for Your love and for Your forgiveness.  I have learned about forgiveness this morning.  I felt as if I was insulted this morning.  I have often been criticized for doing what others don't do.  The best I can do is to pray for them.  I will continue to pray for them. Forgiveness is the ultimate gift of love.  I thank You for yourself forgiving me.  May I remember to continue to forgive and show love in return.

Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for saving me.  I am healed and see and notice the evidence of such freedom.  However, I have been distracted.  I have a crush on a young pro wrestler who I have something not in comment with.  He is an avowed atheist.  Your word is dire for atheists and unrepentant atheists will have a dire end since they don't believe.  My prayer is that they so do believe, despite their views about You and about religion in general.  There are people who are or claim to be religious who have done horrible things.  I wish I could go back and change those things.  Christianity in particular is not an aberration to the world.  Christians should be a light to the world, not an aberration to the world.  I pray for his salvation as well as the fact that Your word says that I will be judged by You.  My judgment hopefully will be of the Judgment Seat of You and not the Great White Throne.  I wouldn't want my family, neighbors, friends, or strangers, many of who do not only claim to be religious, but who don't believe.  However,  how can I be a light and salt to the world when I am just as flawed as everyone else?

Thank You, Lord Jesus.  In Your name, Amen

I am healed

Dear God,

Thank You.  You have lifted a huge burden off of me.  You have been the One who has taught me many a lesson.  It is as if I have had a load that I no longer have to carry.  Thank You.  I am not worried; however, there are times today when I have failed to keep my mind focusing on You.  I cannot look back.  I can only move forward.  I don't feel guilty and I realize that I cannot change the past.  It has been said that the present is a gift.  So, that means the future will be brighter day of course.  Life is a course and a journey.  So far I am enjoying the ride.

Thank You, Amen

Forgive me.  I need Your help.  I ask for a closer walk with thee.  Help free me from all distractions so that I can spend time with you.  I am sorry for failing to do so.  I fear that my words and my prayers have fallen on deaf ears.  I feel like I am such a liar at times and not a sincere person.  No matter how many times I say "I'm sorry" or "forgive me",  I feel as if I am so insincere.  I want to be a sincere person, but it seems that I am failing in this area.  Lord, I need help and ask for wisdom.  Give me the understanding that I so need.  I feel like sometimes I am fighting a losing battle and I am worried as I write this.  I realize that it seems small and petty but I have heard that no matter is too great or too small for You.  You know all and see all.  I guess that is all what it means.  Help me.

I thank You in advance for this, that, and the other.  Thank You for the real healing that I needed.  I thank You for healing me because You were not just some co-pilot.  You are God, Creator, and Lord.  You want to lead and thank You for leading, and guiding me all the way.

Living on Your Timetable

Lord,

I enjoy the talks that we have.  I realize that we all on Your own time table.  With You, 1000 years is as a day and a day is as 1000 years.  As I type this, I am beginning to understand what all of this means.  I believe it is about creation and law.  It is about time and how You see time and having to wait for You.  You will return to us.  You do love us believers and sinners.  You did die for sinners so that may be saved living for You and serving You in our lives.  You also did die for believers as well as we will spend eternity as well provided we are true. There are things that we don't understand everything.  I know that no matter if I stand for You, I will never know all of the answers.  I will not scoff.  I will not laugh.  I will not criticize.  I will wait for You.  I will live for You and serve You. I will, for most of all, will love You and continue to do so. All I know is that You know best even if we don't understand.  Thank You for You do know what You are doing.  You are Most High and Most Holy, for I will praise You, for You are worthy of worship and praise.  I thank You that I am one of Yours.  Thank You for saving me.

I am sorry that I did not choose to spend any time with You.  I admittedly got myself caught up in the things of the world.  I don't want to be Your enemy.  I want to be Your friend.  I ask for forgiveness of this sin.  I want a closer walk with You and that is all that I ask for now.

Thank You for doing so.

Amen

Spending time with You

Father,

I thank You for listening to me.  You have lent Your ear to me, a sinner who became a saint.  You know of everything before I ask of this.  There are a lot of things that I do not know or understand, but I am also thankful that You do.  Thank You for saving me.  Thank You for all You are and for allowing me to spend time with You.  Thank You, Lord.  Thank You.


In Jesus' name,


Amen

Focusing my mind on the Returning Lord and Savior

Lord,

Forgive me for all of my sins for I repent of them.  You call us all to repent, which means to amend my ways.  I amend my ways before You.  Help me keep my mind focused on You.  Grant me wisdom that grace may abound as well.  Help me also to get my house in order.  I give You thanks and great praise.  Hallelujah!

In Jesus' name,


Amen

My main issue

Lord,

I am concerned about my health.  My overall health has not improved.  I need help.  I need guidance. I also ask for these things as I know I have a problem.  I need assistance.  It is not that easy to use the words that I wish to say.  I need assistance.  Lord, help me and show me where to go.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

A matter of health

Lord,

Thank You.  I have finally been honest about my struggles with my weight and my eating habits.  I feel like a failure sometimes, if not often.  I am at a lost with the fact that it took this long to confirm what has been wrong with me.  I don't want to feel ashamed and be ashamed or guilty.  I want to be healthy, look healthy, and a have a healthy mindset.

Sincerity in giving thanks

Lord,

I am just listening to a song that I am loving right now.  I wonder therefore, if I should listen to it. Throughout the entire day, I was wondering quite a few things and they have been on my mind today. I have changed.  You have and still continue to, change me.  Thank You for doing so and I put my trust in You in all things.  May I not be so shy in being myself with You.  May I also not be so shy when it comes to telling the world about You.  Also, may I not be so shy when it comes to praise, study, and worship.  I have been lying, denying, and hiding long enough and it took the last 24 hours to know why.  Thank You.

Sincerely,

The flesh versus the Spirit

Lord,

I have realized that I there are things that I have come to realize about myself.  I have not been content or thankful with all that I have.   Thank You for convicting me of those things that I have been wrong about.  Thank You.  I have been convicted of the fact that I have been living things out for the flesh.  I am a person who has done things that satisfied and fled the flesh, but not the soul. That is the question that I have to constantly ask daily in one way or another.  Everyday is a fight between good versus evil, and the Lord versus the Devil, who is the prince of the air.  Help me to understand that daily that like You, the unchanging God, Satan doesn't change.  Lord, I have come to see that I have not done much studying or reading Your world and hardly any in the last few years. I desire to live for You and serve You all the days of my life.

Sincerely,

Sin that I need to repent of

Lord,

If there is any unrepentant sins, or  sin in my life that I have not confessed, then let me know.  Search my heart. Lord.  I want You to find me doing Your work and living for You. I surrender my all to You.  Forgive me for all of my sins.  I also ask that You would cleanse me from all righteousness.  I give You thanks and praise.

Warfare

Jesus,

I wasn't sure what to write to You.  I feel fine.  I have the courage to finally be honest and to express how I feel.  I am a sinner who became a saint.  I still have sin in me, I cannot deny.  I cannot use that as an excuse.  Everyday there is a war going on.  Sometimes I feel like I am fighting a losing battle. Lord, give me strength in this war.  I want to live right and serve You.  Father, give me the strength that I need to fight my battles.  After all, Your word does say that greater are You than he that is in the world.  I wonder if that applies to spiritual warfare.  Sometimes I just don't know what I am doing. I wish I did.  I do know is that I can come to You for help.  Give me the guidance that I need.  Forgive me for all of my sins.  I thank You in advance in Your name,


Amen

A prayer of sorrow and forgiveness

Jesus,

Forgive me for the thoughts that I had.  Forgive me for allowing things in my mind to distract me. Forgive me for disobeying and not always listening to You.  Lord, help me to keep my mind focused on You.  I am supposed to be one of Yours, but I have sometimes failed You.  I am sincerely sorry for my disrespect and my disobedience.  My desire is to change and make things right, with You.  My desire is to live for You and serve You all the days of my life.  Thank You in advance for Your forgiveness.

Day of love

Lord,

Today is the day of love.  Sometimes, I didn't like me.  Other times, it has been hard to love me.  I wondered why some people have the positive descriptions they have about me.  I didn't always see myself in a positive light.  I feel like right now so much better about myself.  I am no longer irritable, so that is good.  I am okay for now, so that is even better.  I couldn't sleep for the past couple of days. However, I am and I hope to continue to be okay.

My hope is to be okay

Lord,

I am still in a manic state.  I am being truthful when I said that I wanted to live for You and serve You all of the days of my life.  I know it will be impossible if my mind is manic, yet still loops.  I ask that You would calm my mind down.  Forgive me for all of my sins.  I also ask that You will fill me with Your Holy Spirit.  I ask for all of this, and I thank You, In Jesus' Name.

Relationship with the Lord

Need of conviction

Lord,

I am new.  I am regenerated.  Thank You, Lord, for You are love.  Life is only but a vapor, but no matter what, You are here with me no matter what.  Wherever You are, no matter the situation, You are there.  I want You and I know You want me for I want You to know me fully.  Jesus, I want to know You and be saved by faith.  I want to know all about You and You.  I have had doubts for years and I do believe that You died on the cross for me and that the Father rose You from the dead, I still have a problem with having doubts with believing that I am born again.  Am I really born again?  Am I saved?  I have had those doubts for more than two decades and I have had this triggered by a phone call.  That phone call turned out to be a big mistake.  Now more than twenty years later, I still have doubts to this day.  I would like to have my doubts erased and to be saved.  Also, I wonder if I need to be baptized again.  Help me, Precious Lord.

I am in need of You

Prayer of persecution

Heavenly Father,

Give those who persecute others forgiveness and mercy.  Your word says that the world is not worthy of those who are being persecuted.  I often say that life is too short.  Yes, life is only a vapor. We can learn from those who have been and are still being persecuted.  Many have been raped, beaten, and betrayed.  Others have been burned, tortured, and even murdered.  Continue too be with them.  May they never give up through being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Let us who have not been suffered the persecution other believers and those of other religions face.  I am reminded of what is going on in the Middle East and Africa.  I am also reminded of those in India who face persecution. May I as an American walk understand and walk a mile in their shoes.  They have suffered.  Give them wisdom and guidance and the words they need to say.  May they preach the gospel and not be ashamed.  Let us in America be as unashamed as those in the rest of the word.  Forgive us and remind us of what is happening here.  We here are isolated.  Why, Lord, why?  Also, forgive those who persecute believers.  The jailer in the book of Acts was a classic example.  They too are in need in Jesus.  Let them through the Holy Spirit see the error of their ways, for what they do is evil. Father, may those who have been persecuted for give for their persecutors and I ask that they stand strong.  I ask for all of these things

In the name of Jesus,


Amen

Thank You, Lord, for salvation, loving, forgiving, and being merciful to me

Lord,

I don't remember, but I only asked You one word: why?  I was so depressed and I don't like what I discovered about myself.  I can only express myself about myself for myself.  Laziness is tempting but it is of no value.  I have value, but I didn't see myself the way You saw me.  I was so worried today.  Father, forgive me for everything.  I have made a mess of some things more than others.  I am so much happier today than I was yesterday.  I was depressed and I knew how lazy I have become.  I realized that I was not living the way that I should live.  I realized that I had a long way to go.  My story was what I had remembered.  I am feeling better now, but that is not why I reached out to You. I didn't love You the way that I should, and I ask for Your forgiveness.  I realize now, that love involves respect and I didn't always treat You the way I should have.  Father, forgive me.  Create in me a clean heart.  Search me and see if there is any wicked way in me.  Lord, I ask for all of these things and I thank You for saving me and for forgiving me.

In Jesus' name,

Conquering a sin that needs to be conquered

Lord,

I have sinned today.  I cannot conquer this alone.  I ask that You would not only forgive me, but provide a way of escape.  I always give in to temptation and I am weak.  I have difficulty, if not impossibility to stop on my own.  I want nothing more than to change.  I have prayed much about it, but I have no clue what I need to do.  I wish I could just stop it, but the truth is, I don't know how. I need You right now.  I want nothing more than to conquer this sin.

Your help is greatly appreciated.


Thank You, Lord

Hoping to be thankful

Lord,

You have granted me patience so many times.  Well, for all of those times I thank You.  You didn't have to grant me patience on those very areas.  I however, ask for forgiveness for being one who complains so much.  I am sorry for not always being thankful.  I know that I have much to be thankful for on this planet. As I write to You, there are those who have died today and tonight.  My hope is that they would be reminded of and taken care of.  I am sorry that I don't take enough time to consider that there are those who are in need.  I am also sorry that I don't take enough time to realize that there are people who have died without being one of Yours.  That is a sad fate and a sad way to go.  I pray that one day, it will not be me or my loved ones.  Sometimes I even wonder about myself and others.  I wonder about about our own eternal states.  As I look back, I have been a person who has sinned and has become a sinner saved by grace. My prayer is that I took the time to see this and have also taken the time to love You and have served and lived for You.  I admit that there have been times when I have failed to do so, and I ask for forgiveness.  The one thing I would like to be more than just a good daughter, sister, relative, or friend, I desire is to live for You as a saint of Yours and serve You all the days of my life.  My desire is to live as one of Yours, to be enduring and obedient to You and to You alone.  I furthermore give You thanks, praise, and much gratitude.

In Jesus' Name,


Amen

Just tired

Lord,

I am in a funk right now and no matter what I am doing, I cannot get over it.  I want to do well, but lately, I have wondered what my motivation is.  I am scared and I know that is why I am procrastinating.  I remember the daily Bible studies, the Bible reading, physically putting myself together, despite a bad diet, and seeming happier moments.  I want that back.  It is as if parts of my life is gone.  I miss that part of my life.  In fact, I miss being a somewhat more interesting person with a more interesting life.  I miss so much and I am missing out.  I have so much I want to do.  I am just tired and confused about what I want to do.  I hope to feel better but I am not the happiest person in the world.  I am just out of it right now.  Help me, Lord.

Father, I thank You

Dear Father,

Thank You for the day that I had.  I know that life is too short.  You are, however, watching over me. Thank You for watching over me.  I love You, Lord.  My hope is that I have been obedient to You.  I have always needed Your guidance and Your wisdom.  I am and don't desire to, be so self-centered that I forget that there is a big world out there.  Sometimes there are things that are bigger than I. There are also suffering people in the world.  I am reminded of those who have lost their lives today. I concern myself about their eternal destiny.  My hope is that my eternal destiny will be filled with worship and a lack of pain.  I hope to be with You forever and to take my loved ones with You.
Thank You, in advance, for answering all of my prayers.

Why am I here?

Lord,

I thank You for answering my prayer in advance.  I know that we all live a short life but on your time. Even if one lives to 100, our life is but a vapor.  I feel like sometimes, I have always accomplished what I wished to accomplish.  Nor have I ever felt like I didn't waste my time.  I have no clue, but I do wonder what You do have in store for me.  Maybe that last sentence didn't have to be said, but why am I really here?  What is my purpose for being here?  What did You create me for?  Why did You create me?  Really.  I have to ask,  In the short life I have lived, I feel like I am wasting it.  It took me until now to realize that.  Lord, I ask that You would show me what to do and how to live. I often hear that what I need to know is to look into scripture.  But where in Your Word does it say anything about my purpose or Your specific will for my life?  Now I wonder at my age, if it is too late to pursue what I wanted to pursue.  Help me, Lord, and thank You for answering this prayer also in advance.

Lord, help me

Lord,

Help me to think about my own plan to lose weight.  My weight loss program should be easy but it needs a few tweaks.  I know that they are in calories.  Where do I begin and how can I at least try to lose weight without staying in the cycle of dieting?  Everything is a diet.  Everything is a cycle.  It is as I have this obsession this need to succeed.  It will be such a scary thing if I fail.  I hate to fail.  I just hate it.  Lord, help me.  I thank You, Lord, that my hope is that I did not ask for amiss and in this prayer, that has already been answered.

Sinning against....

Heavenly Father,

I am a sinner of need of You.  I don't think of myself as a saint.  Forgive me of all of my sins.  Your Word says, if I were to ask in His name, then He will do it.  Father, I have sinned against You.  I have sinned against my own body and I don't know what I need to do to overcome it.  Cleanse me from my unrighteousness.  I knew my sin was wrong, but I am afraid that I will never be able to overcome this sin.  Lord, I also ask for the strength to overcome this deed.  Grant me a lead not unto temptation, but unto victory.  I pray this and ask this, and I thank You for Your word.

Weighty issues that I am tempted to get overwhelmed by

Lord Jesus,

I thank You for answering my prayers.  I don't know what to do in order to lose weight.  I do eat unhealthy and I don't exercise.  I take full responsibility for all of my actions.  I want to truly change those poor eating habits and my lack of exercise.  I don't wish to stay inspired to dance or use equipment.  I want to do so.  I realize that I have tried this before but I have grown tired of the struggle.  I have also been overwhelmed.  I don't want to be right and do right all the time.  I realize, however, that it is about doing the right thing.  That is life.  I just wish I could do such.  I want to start and start now.  I can now afford it now, but should I even buy anything?  Where should I begin?  I know where to end, but I don't know where to begin?  I need help when it comes to beginning to eat better and to practice other good habits.  All I want is to do better when it comes to my health.

Being overwhelmed

I thank You for taking my issues today.  I have been overwhelmed whenever I think about certain subjects.  Last night, I just couldn't take it anymore.  Often I get overwhelmed.  I would like to be able to get things done, but it is hard to when I'm overwhelmed.  I guess I stress out easily.  I wish it wasn't that way.  I wonder why I get so stressed out so easily. I am starting to get overwhelmed just penning this letter.  I get overwhelmed at even the littlest thing.  It is amazing that I am not doing worse physically being so overwhelmed.  I am just thankful that You have been answering my prayers.
