Another Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

How good You have been to me, Oh Lord God. Since I last wrote this prayer, You gave me a dream job out of the blue! To have this long term sub job in music. And You are using me in the lives of the students and Bart, I do hope.

My hormones are wacky tonight, God. I pray that I won't do anything foolish. I sure know what I want to do, but I don't want to do or say anything You wouldn' t have me do.

I want to pray for the situation at home. I know how Dad is affecting all of us, but most principally, Martin. My heart does cry for him. I long for him to be able to relax enough to just let it run off his back. I pray that You will use this time to bring him to You. He needs You--period. He doesn't need me nor Martha nor my mom, for that matter. He needs You--end of story.

Lord God, help me as I prepare for the tests I must take. Strengthen us all as we work around the house. I pray that You will continue to mold me into the woman of God You want me to be. I pray that You will guide me as I work with the students and as I work with the adults at church. May we bring glory to You as we sing.

In Your Name,

First Time in a While

Dear Heavenly Father,

I know I'm a little behind on here, but I have been praying quite a bit as you know. In fact, something really strange has been happening. Lord God, I have found that I am giving thanks in everything. Everything! Martin and I are physical--thank You. Martin refuses me--thank You. I lose my high school job to an elementary position--thank You. I find myself giving thanks in all circumstances. In fact, with the exception of my Dad, I don't feel like sitting around and complaining. I have really been putting into practice what You have been teaching me. Everything, Lord, is in Your hands. Romans 8:28--all things work together for good. You know it all, Lord. I still need help with living in the present. I still spend my time going too far in advance. I also still have tendencies to overreact and not roll with things, but it is better.

I do pray for Martin's salvation. He seriously is softening to the things of You, Lord. I can see it. He actually talks about church, the Bible, and Christianity. He still has his excuses--Dad is the major one. Lord God, I don't know what You have to do, but do it. I'm willing to wait. And sometimes, my faith fails me. But I know, Lord, that He will be saved, and we will be married.

Speaking of Martin, keep me from doing what I should not. Our physical relationship has really taken off in some amazing ways. It would be so easy for me to say "Go for it!" But God, I know that's wrong. I sometimes feel like I'm playing with fire. Please help me to keep my mouth shut. I so badly want to say something. I'm glad Martin is feeling better. Continue to heal him, and speak to Him as only You can.

I continue to pray about jobs. Lord, I pray You will always put me where You want me--not where I want to be. Help me to know Your will. Provide the job You want for me next year--either subbing or elsewhere.

I do pray for the rest of my family--Mom, Dad, David, Jane, Kristina, Alex, Katie, Nick, Grandma Bales, Frank and Ingrid, Bob and Judy. Please save those who don't know You. Use us in their lives. Bring the ones back to You that need to. I pray that I will be open to how You want to use me in their lives.

I pray that You will show me how You want me to serve at the church. I have lots of dreams and visions. Help me in all things.

In Your Holy Name,

Quick Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
As I have read about Your Son, I realize that Jesus relied on His prayer life. It was important to Him to make His prayer life a priority. He didn't allow anything to take away His time with You. And if He thinks that it is important to spend time with You, then I must make it a priority. Especially now in light of things. Lord God, Saturday night floored me. I can't quite get my mind off it. I long to approach Him, but I'm not sure if I should. Please guide me, God. May I only do what You would have me do.

God, it seems like the time is getting away from me again. Please help me this week as I teach these children. Keep me safe, and keep all of us safe as we do work. I pray that You will guide and direct me in everything, Lord. May I only do what You would have me do. Please save Martin. He needs You. May I not continue to be interrupted. Tonight, I pray for Melody and Bill. I don't know where they are with You. I rarely think of them, but tonight I feel impressed to do so. May You get a hold of their lives and conform them to Your image.

In Your Name,
