Praying, III

2 Timothy 1:7

God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Oh God, allow us not to give in to a spirit of fear, but give us power by Your Spirit, love beyond measure, and self-control that we can not explain. Please fill us with Yourself and take away the dross that we feel threatening to choke us today.

Psalm 29:11

May the LORD give strength to His people!
May the LORD bless His people with peace!

Strengthen us today, Lord, in body and in faith. Build our spiritual & physical muscles. Bless us with peace that passes our understanding and that overflows from our hearts out our fingertips.

Isaiah 26:12

O LORD, You will ordain peace for us,
for You have indeed done for us all our works.

Among the nations, and in the sight of the Church as well as the heathen, O Lord, bring us peace. We do nothing without You. We have done nothing apart from Your ordained will. We continue to seek Your wisdom and ask for Your guidance. Prepare our footsteps and set our hands to the works You have ready for us. Give us peace as we move forward in whatever direction You are about to lead.

1 Kings 8:57

The LORD our God be with us, as He was with our fathers. May He not leave us or forsake us…

Be with us, God, today as we wait. Be with us, Lord, tonight as we try to sleep. Be with us, Father, tomorrow as we walk the hard steps into the doctor’s building and as I lie down upon the ultrasound table. Be with us, King of the universe, as our ears and eyes prepare to hear and see what news You will deliver us then.

  1. If I’m on pins and needles waiting… I cannot imagine how you guys must be feeling.
    you’re in my prayers <3

  2. That made me want to give you a hug… but what are human hugs compared with the eternal love of our Creator? Indeed, the Spirit, embracing us, fills us with the breath of life…
    Lord, preserve the life that you have breathed into the little form in Melissa’s womb. Give Melissa strength, emotionally and physically, to receive the news that tomorrow holds – but most of all, for the eternal wait.

  3. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all day today!! I will not stop!

    There will be many many lifting you to the LORD tomorrow….no matter what happens, you are not alone! May God’s peace guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!
