We are self-employed and need some prayers our way. I have handed over a situation that blindsided us yesterday to God knowing that whatever happens is His plan for us. I pray for God to help me continue to let go of control in releasing it to Him. My husband is very successful and there may also be people that want to bring him down. I have also prayed for those people to do the right thing and place aside any feelings of jealousy or vengeance to look to God in a decision they need to make which affects our livelihood.
I am asking for your prayer today because you are a woman that I now look up to. I’ve never reached out like this before. As long as my husband and I have each other, we have all we need. But he has worked so hard for so long to get to where he is (and done it in a loyal, virtuous, ethical way) to think that someone can basically take it all away in a matter of 24 hours is breaking my heart.
Thank you so much!
I pray for D and her husband today. Asking first that you will bring joy and peace to their lives. Even this minute in the midst of the storm calm the waves. Like the disciples in the boat with Jesus, I pray that they will hold onto the comfort that You are not asleep in this storm. That You can calm the waves with a single word. You can change hearts, open doors and pave roads. Lord I trust that those roads are paved, whether they can see them at this minute or not–doors are waiting to be opened leading to better paths for those who are in Christ Jesus.
While I ask that you remove this burden from their lives, we offer our hearts in submission to you.
You’ve never promised us that life would be easy, but you have promised us joy. Praise you Father God in the name of your precious Son Jesus. That joy is here, and now. Not tomorrow, not a year down the road, but this minute it’s theirs for the taking.
People can threaten their finances, threaten their health, threaten their livelihood, but no one on earth or below can take away the peace that passes all understanding.
Oh Lord, I pray for them, and for my own husband as he labors at work that they would hold onto that peace, and see it for the great treasure it is.
Paul was a man who saw the beauty that trials bring, and we as your servants and students of that message seem to grasp it in part. My heart longs for the day when I’ll treasure each trial that comes knowing that you are ever present and beside me.
“Never Alone.” That has been your message to me, Lord. And I pray that it will be a comfort to them.
In the almighty name of your son Jesus, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think. We lay our hearts and our fears in your hands. May we leave this place of prayer strengthened and refreshed by Your Spirit.
