Psalm 90:1-2  Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from eternity to eternity, you are God. Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that you will be with us today in everything we do. You remind us that you have always been here; you were here before you created the world. So please give us the understanding to realize what this means—that since you made…

Jeremiah 6:16 This is what the Lord says. Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask about the ancient paths. Ask where the good road is. Walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. Dear Heavenly Father, Where is the good road? Where should we walk today? Please let us find rest for our souls. It seems as if our lives are patterns of crossroads and decisions we must make, small ones like what we will eat or wear, to major…

Psalm 103:11-13 Yes, as high as the heavens are above the earth, so powerful is his mercy toward those who fear him. As distant as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our rebellious acts from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for your compassion for us and your forgiveness intended for all people. However, it is delivered to believers who fear…

1 Timothy 6:11-12 But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of eternal life, to which you were called and about which you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Dear Heavenly Father, You would have us run from everything that would destroy our faith and hate everything that could cause our eternal destruction. The problem is this;…

Hebrews 4:9-13 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God rested from his work. Therefore, let us make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword. It penetrates even to the point of dividing soul and spirit, joints…

1 John 2:1-2 My children, I write these things to you so that you will not sin. If anyone does sin, we have an Advocate before the Father: Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the whole world. Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for the fatherly way John wrote these words and for being our advocate before the Father. As John encourages us not to sin,…

1 Timothy 6:6-8 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we certainly cannot take anything out. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be satisfied. Dear Heavenly Father, We pray for godliness with contentment that can only come through you. What does it take for our bodies to be satisfied? Paul wrote to Timothy, “Having godly contentment, we are satisfied with food and clothing.” But because of our…

Proverbs 16:9 A person’s heart plans his way, but the Lord makes his steps secure. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you, Lord, for giving us the latitude to make our own decisions and plan our way. We are not pawns on a chess board that you move to the next square; however, you give each person the freedom to carve out the path they want to take. And while you know what the future holds for each of us, you allow happening what…

1 Peter 2:1-5  Therefore, rid yourselves of all evil, all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all slander. Like newborn babies, crave the pure milk of the word so that by it, you may grow up with the result being salvation. Certainly, you have tasted that the Lord is good! As you come to him, the Living Stone, rejected by men but chosen by God and precious, you also, like living stones, are being built as a spiritual house to be a…

1 Timothy 2:1-4 First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all those who are in authority, in order that we might live a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. Dear Heavenly Father, We pray for all…
