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?

Sincerely,

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,


Amen

A Good Day

Lord,

This day was a good day for me.  What do I do?  What do I need to do?  Where do You have me to go?  I ask for wisdom, discernment, and understaning.  Thank You in advance that You know all.

In Jesus' name,
Amen

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.

In Your name,

Amen

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.

In Your name, Jesus,

Amen

“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.

Prayer

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,
