Prayer For Father

 Mother prayer

O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time we need

We humbly beseech thee to care, visit, touch and relieve Your beloved servant, our beloved father.

Look upon him with the eyes of the mercy; comfort him with a sense of your goodness

Preserve our lovely father from the temptations of the enemy, and give him patience under his powerlessness

We handed out our dear father to your loving hand; embrace him in your warm protection and care, as You are the place to whom we trust.

In Your perfect and beautiful time, heal and restore him to health, enable him to lead the rest of his life in the fear of You and Your glory alone.

Grant that finally he may dwell with Your loving kindness in life everlasting through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

Our Prayer

Our Prayer-Karina's Thought

Hello my dear blog friends, I am grateful to God today could come back to blogging after around a month not being active in the blog world. I have missed so much beautiful and awesome posts from all of you and later will try to take time to visit and reading your posts.

This evening I just want to share something that have touched my heart so deep. Three days after my baby was born, my mother asked me to talk privately and she gave me her diary book. She said that the diary contained her daily writing about my growth progress when I was a baby. She wrote in detail every growth that happened to me day after day. She said, “I hope you could learn something from this diary. You could know and learn how amazing seeing our baby grows. That is such a great and beautiful God’s work through us as parents. Our tiredness will be completely gone when we see our baby growing very well”

I more touched when I found a prayer written on one page of the diary. When I read it I cannot hold my tears. Then my mother said, “This is my prayer for you and now it becomes your prayer for your son, Andrew”

Dear God,

We give thanks to you for the out pouring miracle and blessing upon us for the gift a baby son that You given to us. He is a gift sent down from Heaven. This precious blessing will always remind us how big is Your love.

Our Heavenly Father, we pray and handed him into your hand. We let him life in your loving kindness, mercy, and wisdom. Please form him to be someone who always fears to God because fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. May his soft and little ears always hear and receive messages through Your Word. May his little shining eyes will see how wonderful Your creation, can see how great God’s love to this world and it will make him loves You more than anything. May his hand will be strong so one day could reach out the world with the act of kindness and do everything according Your will. May his little cute feet will walk in the way of righteousness and every step he take is always based on fear to God, everything he does is always  honor and glorify You.

God, form our child to be someone who have wisdom to know when he weak and dare to face himself when he afraid. Form him to be someone who always proud and strong when one day he has failure and losing. But make him always has humble heart when he has successful triumph and always realizes that the every victory is not just because of his own ability but from God’s grace alone.

Dear God, Make our little prince to be a man who not just hoping but also always accompanied by deeds. Lead him always in the way of ease and comfort, but if he should to be in under pressure, difficulties and challenges, let it all to be a lesson to him so he knows that life is not so easy and it all will teach him how to endure and struggle in life and will make him stronger day by day. Let him learn to remain stand up and toughen up in the midst of life storm. and when he feel alone among the darkness and hard times, he knows and realized that actually he not alone because You never leave him alone.

Our Heavenly Father, teach him to always have compassion to those who have fail, teach him to always be motivated to lend a helping hand to those who in need with pure heart without expect anything in return. May he reaching dreams as high as stars in the sky but never forget that everything he will reach is blessings and grace from You not because of his strength and capability. Let him reach the brightly future without forgetting the past. Form him to be a wise man that is able lead himself before leading others.

Dear Lord, thank you for hearing our prayer, refine this imperfect prayer and nevertheless not our will, but thine, be done. Amen

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. (1 Samuel 1:27)

Let Your Arms Unfold Us (The Prayer)

Let Your arms unfold us

 

Let Your arms unfold us

Through the dark of night

Will Your angel hold us

Until we see the light

Hash

Lay down your troubled mind

The day

Has vanished and left us behind

And the wind

Whispering soft lullabies

Will soothe

So close your weary eyes

Let Your arms unfold us

Through the dark of night

Will Your angel hold us

Until we see the light

Sleep

Angel will watch over you

And soon

Beautiful dreams will come true

Can you feel

Spirit embracing your soul

So dream

While secret of darkness unfold

Let Your arms unfold us

Through the dark of night

Will Your angel hold us

Until we see the light

Thanksgiving in Prayer

prayer3

This morning when I just arrived at the office, my secretary suddenly asked me: “Ma’am, what is your prayer today? What you ask for in your prayer?” I smiled and replied: “Today I did not ask for anything. Just lift up my praise and gratitude to God.”  My secretary looks a bit puzzled. “You did not ask for something? You did not ask to God to lead your day as you always ask me to do?” I replied again firmly: “No. what about you. There is anything you ask for?” My secretary replied enthusiastically: “Oh Ma’am, Yes. I have so many requests to God!” Then she mentions a series of requests.  My heart saying: “Oh God you always impatient to listening your child’s request”

The conversation above describes our attitude in prayer.  Many people use prayer as a medium only for asking and complaining. Well, it is normal. Because in The Bible it’s written:  “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”(Luke 11:9). But did we realize that in our prayer we not just asking and always asking but should fill our prayer with thanksgiving? Philippians 4:6 clearly said: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” It is important to remember because in fact there are many of us who forget to fill our prayers with thanksgiving. Maybe we did start our prayers by saying thanks, but how we really appreciate the thanksgiving seriously, who comes from the deepest of our heart? How much our gratitude compared with our request? Suppose that our prayers are written as many as four paragraphs, how many paragraphs filled with our gratitude?

We often use thanksgiving as an introduction in prayer while our minds are filled with a list of requests from the beginning we starting to pray. God does not want we pray like that. First, He wants us to believe through our faith. He wants us to begin our prayers without feeling worry. God wants us to lift our requests with full confidence, comes from our love to Him and only that which allows us to be able to fill the prayer with thanksgiving. God wants a sense of joy within us is not lost under any circumstances, and the sense of joy that is what enables us to be able to raise the praise and our gratitude regardless of the condition or any situation that we are experiencing.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

Dear all friends, what about us? Whether our prayer got it right? Whether we have made a balancing between the requests and gratitude?  Whether our thankfulness only as an introduction or just lip service?  Let us begin to pray not only full of requests but also full of thankfulness from the deepest of our heart. God knows what our problem without need to shout to Him every day. Nothing is impossible before God, and please remembers that God loves us as His children and He was created us very special.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”(1 Thessalonians 5:18)

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.  For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. (Psalms 95:1-6)

Evening Prayer

Jesus my Lord, thank you because you are always be there in my life

When I lost my way, do not know where I had to stride over, when my eyes began to blur, I was weary and burdened, desperate and were let down.  I get You always be my side.

You are my consolation place, a place where I was pouring my entire affliction. Thou see any cried and put my tears in Your wineskins.

When people reject me, not even You refuse me.  Though I was sinned to You, when I was come to you with a broken heart and shattered, You are not look at me with contempt even with lovingly You open Your hand and hugged me so tight.

Oh Jesus my Lord, You are so good, thank you so much because your unfailing love is infinite and interminable. Your protection and consolation always strengthen me in carrying out this tough day.

Although Your way out do not always comes immediately, I believe everything that happened to me just solely for my own good. For you who teaches me to put my faith and trust on You.

Thank you Jesus my Lord, thank you for any problems and hardship that You allow get into my life. I realized and more understand that I must be closer to Thee. It makes me not always rely on my own strength and wisdom. Only to you alone I handed all of the matters. Amen

Assurance Prayer

????????

O Lord God of the universe,
We know You hear each prayer;
Be with us in this time of need,
Assure us You are there.

As we sense Your loving presence
And rest ourselves in You,
There is not a trial or hardship
That we can’t tunnel through.

Teach us all You would have us know
As we struggle in this plight;
May every single step we take
Be pleasing in Your sight.

Life gets so difficult at times
And our flesh is so frail,
But we know we can do all things–
Through Christ, we cannot fail.

Thank You for blessed assurance
That we’ll reach Gloryland;
Just assure our hearts day by day
You hold our feeble hand.

 “The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” (Psalm 46:7)
