James 2:26

For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. (James 2:26 ESV)

How we live reveals what we believe.

“By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?’ Then I will declare to them solemnly, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers’”

Faith is the soul of works, and works the embodiment of faith

Dear Lord….

(by: Anonymous)

Dear Lord, I thank you for this day.

I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.

I’m 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 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 day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.

Let me continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil.

And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of God.

And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus’ example — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.

It’s the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.

I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to my heart.

Continue to use me to do Your will.

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 for others. I pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way.

I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood.

I pray for those who don’t know You intimately.

I pray for those who don’t believe. But I thank you that I believe.

I believe that God changes people and God changes things.

I pray for all my sisters and brothers.

For every family member in their households.

I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God.

Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.

I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly..

This is my

prayer.
In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

According to His Will

I know what I want and I want it to be God’s will. Is it? Only God knows.

What do I want?

I want healing for my 35 year old cousin who is a daughter, sister, wife and mother of 3 young girls.

Stomach cancer. Spread significantly.

Words that we all dread.

A young woman.

A born again Christian.

What can one say? How should one pray?

I believe that nothing is impossible with God, nothing is impossible for God.  — “Behold, I AM the Lord…is anything too difficult for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27

I know and believe that God CAN heal her – God can do anything.

I am praying for her, for her family, her husband, children, mother and father and siblings. Her support system. Her loved ones.

I am praying that God will give them all strength to face whatever lies ahead in the coming days and weeks.

I really don’t know what to pray.

I can confidently rely on the Spirit of God in prayer.

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” – Romans 8:26, 27 

I pray that they will feel His presence with them as they walk through this difficult time together as a family. I believe that God is able.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” — 1 John 5:14, 15
