I want to pray hard because there are a lot of things that are happening in my life right now but the thing is sometimes I don’t know where or how to start my prayers. Did you ever feel like waking up in the morning and you just want everything to be fine? I have my prayer alarm in my cell phone every eight o’clock in the evening. I got the idea from my cousin tintin, I asked her why 8pm? She said “because it’s the only time she thinks that she has nothing so much to do or think”.
So going back to praying, as I’ve said sometimes I don’t know how to start my prayer. Do I have to start it within myself or my parents, my sisters and nephews and even my brothers-in-law and my grandmother? Or sometimes I pray to God that my relationship with Cy will be stronger. Did you ever started your prayer like everything just pop-out of your head like your parents’ health and relationship, your siblings and your nephews health also, your relationship with your boyfriend that all I can say is that “God, you know what is in my heart and mind and I don’t know where to start. I surrender it all to you. Amen.” I know it’s a lazy person’s prayer but it was all I can think of at that moment.
As I was searching my files I saw this prayer that someone sends me in my email.
I thank you for this new day. I thank you for my being able to see, hear and feel this morning. I am 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 on 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 and everyday to clear my mind so that I can hear from you.
Please broaden my mind so that I can accept all things. Let me not whine or whimper over things I have no control over. It is the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can’t pray, you will still listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do your will. Please 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 to others.
I pray for those that are lost and can’t find their way. I also pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don’t know you intimately and I pray for those who don’t believe you. But I thank you that I believe,
I believe that God changes people and God changes things.
I pray for all my brothers and sisters, my mom and dad, relatives and friends and for each and every member in their households, I pray for peace, love, joy and their good health. I pray that they will be out of debt and that all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this – knows there is no problem, circumstances or situation greater than God. Every battle is in your hands for your fight, I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it and every ear that hears it. In Jesus name, I pray.
I have to include there my nephews, Cy, closest cousins, bestest and true friends. This prayer has it all and I want to share it to everyone. God bless us all!
