The Power of Prayer Works

God’s Word: From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people. Psalm 3:8

Wisdom Shared: At the start of each day as I rise a single thought comes to mind. It could be healing for someone, or an answer to prayer whispered in my spirit.
Today’s word; From the Lord comes deliverance … Thank you from delivering us from the evil one.  On other days the first thought of the day could be lifting up prayers for a a family member or close friend going through a hardship … or a verse to encourage for sustaining grace. Sometimes it is a song in my heart that I find myself humming through out the day.  At the start of the day the inner thoughts set the tone of the day.  As I look out my terrace today … It is a cloudy and rainy day… the hope for the day to set my goals in motion to accomplish the work before me.  Pray continually throughout the day — To pray for God’s people to gain wisdom and honor, to gain knowledge and understanding, to act on God’s glory and power.  And more importantly not act in the flesh, nor compromise in the truths that set us apart from the world.
Thank you Lord, for your loving kindnesses that you so graciously display toward those who love you and call on the name of the Lord.
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,

A Prayer for Thanks:
For this reason, … Heavenly Father; since the day we heard about your people,
I have not stopped praying for your people. May we your people continually
ask you God to fill your sons and daughters with the knowledge of your will
through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[so that we your
people may live a life worthy of you our Lord and please you in every way:
bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,  being
strengthened with all power according to your glorious might so that we may
have great endurance and patience,and giving joyful thanks to you Father, who
has qualified us to share in the inheritance of your holy people in the kingdom
of light.  For you Father have rescued us from the dominion of darkness and
brought us into the kingdom of the Son you love Christ Jesus, in whom we
have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. We thank you for equipping us for
every good work you have called your people to do.  We thank you for the
courage and strength… and the empowerment of your word spoken into
our lives.  In Jesus name… Amen!

Psalm 3[a]

A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

1 Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
“God will not deliver him.”[b]

3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.

5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.

7 Arise, Lord!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.

8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
