Daily Devotional – 5/1/14 “Life!”


On last night, I was woken up twice and when this happens, I know that it’s God dropping something into my spirit and each time I prayed yet He said nothing making me realize that He was simply dropping by to let me know He’s here. See, I’ve realized that even if I never mumble a word, God still listens to my heart and just maybe my heart has been crying out on my behalf to feel God and He showed up. Listen, I don’t know why God placed this calling over my life but I am grateful. I don’t know why you all take a moment, each day, to read the words I put together but I am grateful. I don’t even know what tomorrow holds but I’ll thank God for whatever it is in advance (tomorrow being my birthday). I’ve come to know that even when we are scrapping to make it to the next payday, God has already provided a way. When we dwell on the sickness that’s in our body, God has already worked out a healing plan. When our path is dark, all we have to do is keep walking because God designed the path. Yea, God is the brain of this body and all we have to do is trust Him and then follow His lead. I know that I shared a prayer on yesterday but on this national day of prayer, I just thought I’d pray for life today.

Our Father in Heaven, holy is thy name, giver and taker of life, alpha and omega of all things, my provider and my comforter; I petition your throne praying for life. God, I am not praying for just my life but for the life of your people. Lord, we’re in a dying world and we need your help. Our children aren’t making it to see adulthood and adults are making it to the promised time that you’ve given. Life is being snatched away and we need you. Folks aren’t living anymore because they’ve become afraid of the world. Folks aren’t living anymore because the storm of life has them hiding inside. Folks aren’t living anymore because they’ve deemed living hard; oh God we need you and on today I pray, to you, God because you’re the only one who can help us. Send your Holy Spirit to abide in your people so that they live like you would have them to live. Touch all those who stand up in your name so that they reach your people to teach them more. Go through our worship places and clean out the mess so that we can hear your message. Go through the hearts of your people and remove anything that is hindering them from living. Lord, revive us, renew us and restore back unto us life. Restore back unto us the life you’ve meant for us, the life you’ve already promised. Lord, I know you will. This prayer I submit to you, Amen.

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” Psalm 16:11
