Thank you God for providing us with people and circumstances to do just that. One of my closest friends shared another wonderful book with me and I want to share it with you. I am going to place copies in the Narthex next week, please help yourself. " 10 minutes to Powerful Prayer" by Stormie Omartian
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.( James 4:8). No matter what is happening in your life, God is always worthy of our praise. That's why worship must be our first reaction to everything. Great things happen when we worship God... far more than we even realize. Lord, I come before Your presence with thanksgiving. I worship you this day as the almighty Creator of heaven and earth. You are the all-powerful God of the universe for whom nothing is impossible. I exalt You as my Creator and I praise You as my heavenly Father. I thank you that You are the God of love, peace and joy. "I will praise you, O Lord, with my whole heart. I will tell of all Your marelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You. I will sing praises to Your Holy Name, O Most High". (Psalm 9:1-2).I thank You for all that You are. I thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus to be my Savior and Redeemer. Thank you for resuing me, forgiving me and giving me new life. Thank you for Your Holy Spirit in me, for guiding me, comforting me and filling me afresh with love, peace and power. Thank You for Your Word that gives me life. I praise You, Lord, for Your goodness, grace and mercy that endures forever.
In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen
