May Your Life Be Blessed

Relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow God to be the only person on your mind while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc.., we should give the same respect to this prayer. Friends, who pray together, stay together.
If you pray this prayer, change the number.


Dear Lord, I thank you for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.

Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of God.

And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -- to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will.

Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak.. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those who are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those who will delete this without sharing it with others. I pray for those who don't believe. But I thank you that I believe.

I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers.... For every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and e very mouth that confesses them willingly..

This is my prayer.
In Jesus' Name,


Pass this on if you like. You may be a means of blessing in someone else's life. If you pass it on change the number at the top of the page.

Dear Patty ~~ What a wonderful prayer
Thank you for posting it.
I am glad you are pleased with the award and will keep on reading to see your answers. I am very glad that you liked the Eisenhower story
enough to pass it on. Winifred in the UK says they teach about The
Holocaust there. Definitely.
I hope it soon warms up for you and cools for us.Take care, my friend,
Love Merle.

Prayer is a step towards discovering self to discover God.

How precious. And a wonderful way to start this day--though it is REALLY early here--around 4:30 a.m.

We will be visiting a dear friend of ours who's just come home from the hospital. She had complications from surgery she had last week.

I don't mind getting old, but I see that age often robs people of so much. Wonderful talented fascinating people...

I'm glad we get to go to a better place once this old body has had enough.

Have a great weekend, Patty!

I'm hoping for an early spring! I think it would be a good thing for everyone this year.
