Tuesday of Prayers...
"How precious is your loving kindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings." Psalm 36: 7~
"For You will light my lamp: The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, By my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." Psalm 18: 28-30~
"Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplications! The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him." Psalm 28: 6,7~
"... that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe..." Ephesians 1:17-19~
"Be anxious in nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ." Philippians 4:6~
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5,6~
"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 can not 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. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:26-28~
I LOVE to pray the very inspired words of God back to Him. There is something so powerful in that. And I think God likes it too. But what I like even more than that, is how active and alive the Holy Spirit is in our lives and how He guides, comforts, and directs us. I have always been moved at how the Holy Spirit HIMSELF prays FOR us to our Lord God when we don't know exactly how... according to God's will. THAT is powerful. THAT is intimate. THAT is precious. THAT is a gift. THAT is what I love today... the Holy Spirit and I are in prayer together and that is just too cool for words.
One of the MANY things I am praying for today is an MRI and MRS Abby has scheduled for Friday. Her seizures have been about once a week for a while and last week she had two. She is reacting poorly to an increase in one of the medications and we are trying to tweak that. The MRS is the test we are hoping may shed some light on Abby's chemical situation in her brain. There is one thing we are looking for in particular. I won't go into details now but your prayers for God to just HIGHLIGHT anything that needs to be seen and to open and direct the eyes of the doctors are much appreciated.
Love to you all... I am praying prayers of thanksgiving for you all today!
"A man who has friends must himself be friendly, BUT there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24~
