Today's Prayer... February 19, 2011

Today I pray for strength.
Dear Lord,
sometimes we feel physically drained and we need You to help us carry on. But also, we can feel spiritually tired and weak. When we doubt ourselves and our faith, we can feel helpless and confused, like nothing is worth living for. And, if we have been dealing with those who do not believe and are difficult, we can feel exhausted. So, today I pray that Lord, You give us the strength to continue life and push through to please you.
In Jesus' name we pray,

30 hour famine

The 30 hour famine started at one o clock . I go to a Christian school and the church youth group there was doing this. The 3o hour famine is when you give up all food and all drinks except for juice and water for 30 hours. During that time, they go and do an outreach project, hang out and play with friends, and spend time with the Lord.Though I am not partaking in this event, I think this is a great way to focus on what is really important in life.
I hope this post gives you a new look on your personal devotion with the Lord and how grateful you are for everything you are blessed with.

Today's Prayer... February 18, 2011

Today's prayer is for gratefulness.
Dear Lord,
We want to come before you with praise for all of your mighty deeds. You are the ruler over all of Heaven and Earth. We know we are sinners and we confess that even in the midst of our beliefs, we still do wrong. Thank you for looking out for us everyday and having a plan to direct our lives. Today we come to you with the request for gratefulness. It is often that we only think of what others can do for us and we forget to be grateful for all that others have already done. We sometimes get so wrapped up in what we want and never stop to be grateful for what you have provided us with. So, we ask for You to open our hearts and help us to better remember to be grateful for everything.
In Jesus' name we pray,

Today's Prayer

Everyday we pray, but we don't always remember to thank the Lord, or sometimes we forget to tell Him how awesome He is. Other times, we only pray for ourselves or our needs. We can sometimes forget about the people around us or qualities we lack. Everyday, it is my goal to post a prayer. I want to be reminded everyday of the people around me and God's great deeds, and not just my physical lacking. Tomorrow I will start!
May the Lord bless you today!

Valentine's Day

Hey everybody! wow, it's been a long time since I posted, so i have a lot to say. But, for this one post, I'll keep this short and sweet.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. It is a time to tell those close to you how much you love them. It is also a time to thank the Lord and tell Him how much you love Him as well. He is the one who gives everything and unconditionally loves everyone.
So remember, as we celebrate Valentine's Day with our loved ones, remember that God is the one who loves always!

Happy Valentine's Day, Aria
