TEACH US TO PRAY

Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples."

As you read this, I will be on my way to the hospital for cataract surgery. I appreciate the prayer support and will update you as soon as I am able to do so. Thanks for praying

When Jesus finished praying that day, so many years ago
His disciple came to Him, with something he wanted to know.
A simple request with profound results; "teach us how to pray."
May we, dear friends, follow his desire, and do the same today.

WHO IS ON DISPLAY

And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 

As you go about your business for today, please let Jesus be on display in your life. Thanks for praying.

Help me to live for You today in such a special way,
That others will know without a doubt, in my life that He is on display (R.P.)

LIGHT AND STRENGTH

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 

With the deep snow, and very cold weather, there are some natural fears that arise. But I am so glad that the Lord for is  our Light and Strength. Let us go today with that assurance. Thanks for praying.

The Lord for us is many things, but light and salvation are supreme.
Before we walked in darkness and all was dreary and upstream.
Then we met the Savior, and he gave new hope for sure,
And oh how great it is to have Him, and be saved and so secure.
He is now our strength for living, and with Him we are not afraid.
So march on dear Christians, and do not be dismayed. (RP)

STOP FINDING FAULT

Luke 6:41 And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye?

It is so easy to find fault in others, and overlook our own weaknesses. We can change this right now, and should. Thanks for praying. 

It's so easy to find fault in others, we seem to do it every day,
But here we have a warning, and the principle we should obey.
When you think others are failing, remember to look in the mirror,
Ask His forgiveness right now, and by Him always stay nearer. (RP)

PRAYER REQUEST

Isaiah 65:24
Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.

 Rawlie (my son) is here to take me to the hospital tomorrow morning for my cataract surgery. Check in time is 7:30. Problem: almost everything is closed because of yesterday's storm, and another is predicted for tonight. Thanks for praying.

What a gracious heavenly Father we have; He is ever attentive as we pray,
Even before we call upon Him, He is listening to us all along our way.
I am so glad He answers prayer; what an encouragement this is to me,
I hope that you will trust Him more and a faithful follower you will want to be.  (RP)

WILL YOU DO THIS TODAY?

Lu 11:1 Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples."

Please read this verse again and decide to do what the disciple did. You will not be sorry, and the results are enormous. Thanks for praying. 

When Jesus finished praying that day, so many years ago
His disciple came to Him, with something he wanted to know.
A simple request with profound results; "teach us how to pray."
May we, dear friends, follow his desire, and do the same today. (RP)

NO CONDEMNATION

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

I am grateful that once you are IN Christ, there is no condemnation.  Are you in Him, because you trusted Him for your personal salvation?  If not, why not ask Him NOW.  Thanks for praying.

I wandered condemned, a sinner by birth, until I met Jesus my Lord.
He saved me from sin and gave me new life, now we are of one accord.
In Jesus there's no condemnation; He washed me and saved me from sin.
A new creation I am, because of His grace, and now all is peaceful within. (RP)
