A Fervent Prayer to Remember Who I Am in Christ

Lord God,

Thank You that through the sacrifice of Your Son, I have been equipped with every spiritual blessing. Thank You that, before the foundation of the world, I was chosen. I am seen as holy and blameless before You.  I was adopted through the kind intention of Your will.  I am redeemed and forgiven. I am the recipient of a glorious inheritance, and I am secured forever by the Holy Spirit.

I pray I receive a spirit of wisdom from You.  …

I know that the many stresses in my life have contributed greatly to my current health issues.

One of the things I am trying to do is learn to manage stress better.  I found a new tool to use from an unlikely source.  Well, not unlikely exactly, as it’s a program to help control diet-related issues.  What was unlikely was that one of the emails from this site talked about God - and it was not a specifically-designated Christian site.

My Fervent Prayer - The Full Armor of God

I often forget that this life is a spiritual battle.  Somehow, it seems so easy to believe in angels … but the enemy?  Not so much. 

It’s easy for me to focus on my health issues - the cancer, heart problems, my anxieties - and let those rule my thoughts.  Which is exactly, I believe, what the enemy wants.  Focus on the problems.  Not on the true cause of the problems in this world.

Reading the book Fervent has helped me to re-realize that this life IS a battle - and one we need not face alone.

My Fervent Prayer for Passion

The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the times of my greatest pains and challenges are also the times of the most growth for me spiritually.

I kinda thought that by the time I was 64 (How DID that happen? and WHEN?), I’d have it far more together than I do - but … truth is, I don’t and so, I’ve still a lot to learn.
