On Sunday, February 15, 2015, the area in which I live, experienced a major service outage for those who have AT&T UVerse. We had no television, no phone, and no wireless access. Fortunately, our cell phones were working and we were able to maintain communication with the “outside” world.
With no Internet or television to distract me, I was able to complete tasks much faster and sooner than I might have normally completed them. I had time to read, to talk with my grandson and husband, time to think and time to pray. At first, I was irritated that I could not post my daily blog, but while I sat, thinking, I remembered how I could use the time. I thought about all those who “follow” my blogs and my inability to remind them I was thinking about them and praying for them and then I prayed.
Father, in the name of Jesus,
Look upon all who love You and respond to every need.
For those who need healing in their bodies, heal them from the crowns of their heads to the souls of their feet and every bone, organ, muscle, tissue, cartilage, and joint in between.
For those who need a financial blessing, pour out wisdom from on high to obtain and maintain financial security.
For those who are lonely, speak to their hearts and remind them they are never alone because You are always there.
For those who feel unloved, encourage them to turn to Your Word and see Love in every page and be filled with the love You pour onto us.
For those who are confused and living in doubt, break the shackles of uncertainty and confusion from their minds so they can think clearly, with the mind of Christ.
For those who are haughty and high-minded, thinking they do not need You, bring them to the end of themselves so they will acknowledge Your greatness.
For those who feel weak in their own strength, strengthen them by the power of Your love and infilling of Holy Spirit.
For those who have been out in severe weather, protect them and keep them all harm, keeping them safe until they can reach shelter from the winds and elements that could kill.
For those who are determined to minister to Your people by any means necessary, keep them diligent and focused, and safe, blessing all they put their hands to in honor of You!
Whatever the need is, Lord, You can respond to it like no one else and we give You all the praise and glory because You are the only one worthy of it.
All of this we ask and thank You for doing in Jesus’ name. In this moment, we declare it done! Amen!
Though I may not be able to communicate my love for you, know that I am always thinking and praying for God’s best in the lives of all who love Him and are willing to obey His Word. You are never forgotten by me!
