Broken record

Dear God
You are holy, your motives are totally pure. Not like me – even my best deeds are like filthy rags to you!

God why do I feel so upset about not seeing my bf more?
Yesterday I was hoping to drop over to his house in the afternoon but he said 7pm suited him better. I was feeling annoyed… But then felt guilty last night because he said the reason was that he felt sick! Oops!

Last week i felt disappointed because I told him we hadn’t got much time together just the 2 of us and then the next day his family made a wee comment about it which I felt was a dig towards me.

Lord I am complaining and I know I shouldn’t because you have blessed me abundantly!

Thank you for my lovely friends, sweet, caring boyfriend, generous family, good boss and fantastic job! Thank you that I’m getting to church this morning. Please bless me today as I’m oncall, may my phone battery last long enough!

I bless you Jesus for providing for me continually! Much better than I look after myself!!!
Fill me up with your Holy Spirit and direct my paths. Bless * and keep him well and whole! I love you Lord. Forgive me for my many complaints, I’m sure you get tired hearing them.. I’m like a broken record, yet you still love me unconditionally, help me to be like that too!

Everything has changed lately – getting kicked out of my room, finding new digs, doing a new job, leaving small group, moving to the seaside! It’s for the better I guess…just would love it more if there was a small group for my age here. Please Lord may I find one soon!

In Jesus name I pray! Amen

Hello Lord!

O wow, _ is so sweet! He’s an absolutely lovely guy! O my goodness, his friend saw me with _ yesterday though! What would he think? Should I tell him?!
Aagghh!!!

I thought yesterday morning was going well, but as the day went on I felt more nervous and more uncomfortable!
I knew deep down, I couldn’t see myself married to him, all I would want to be is friends.

_ is a sweetheart though, better than my “dream guy”.

Lord bless him, keep him safe, help him as he seeks you and serves you!

Lord thank you for helping me to respond to . and , gently declining their interest. Please may you help them as they read it, to not take it personally, to not be offended or feel embarrassed or regretful but that they would feel encouraged, hopeful and blessed by knowing me.

Please lord! I know that is a lot to ask but I would really appreciate it.

Thank you in anticipation.

In Jesus holy name. Amen.

O my God,

I’m working today, I know the two men I have to see this morning, they need a miracle Jesus, give them their life back, may they be born again for your glory. Help me to pray for them with faith.

God you are good, you are true, you love us so passionately, you are just, you are mighty, you are wonderful.

Sorry God for putting temporary things before your Kingdom.
Sorry for putting myself before others. My selfishness before their basic needs.
Sorry for not being joyful. Jesus is very exciting! May that truth be clear on my face.

Sorry for being scared of what others may think of me, and then not standing up for you, help me to not hesitate in doing what is right.

Thank you for blessing me abundantly, thank you for saving me, for your forgiveness, grace, purpose for my life, your comfort, counsel, faithfulness and constant closeness whether I feel it or not.

Thank you for your patience, your compassion, your provision and your Word.

Please help me now as I read it, to understand it and apply it to my daily living starting today.
Please bless my family, Christian friends, non Christian friends, co workers and clients, may each one of them draw closer to you and seek you with all their hearts.

Renew my joy, hope, faith and love.
For Jesus sake, amen.
