Dear Lord God, This is such special time of year. People are recovering from winter blues, holiday bills, planning for weddings and looking forward to spring. Father not everyone is joyous, we pray this morning for all those who feel even worse this time of year. Those who feel they have not progressed, who feel stuck in a RUT. We pray for those who are not anticipating the future YOU have planned for them. We pray for those who see their lives, jobs or relationships as meaningless or hopeless. Father we pray that they would turn toYOU and that we would help them to come to know your LOVE for them, how special they are, and find they have GREAT purpose in their being,
not their titles!!!. I pray that we, your children, would be the shining examples ofyour Love and Christian living before the world, especially now. I pray that the lost will see Jesus (in us) and be drawn unto you. Thank you, Father, for watching over us, being with us, and loving us in spite of ourselves. You are merciful and worthy of our praise.
In the name of Jesus The Christ we pray;
But those who suffer He delivers in their suffering; He speaks to them in their affliction. – Job 36:15

“Maintain clear perspective, and refuse to allow interim disturbances to dissuade you from strong and abiding faith. Look beyond these short-term difficulties by not giving them more power or significance than they deserve. I tell you truly
that this too shall pass, says the Lord. Step back from your focus on trouble to see the larger picture of blessings and victory”
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
