O mighty God, we worship You for Who You are in all of Your glory. We’ve tried many things, we’ve trusted many people; we’ve been disappointed, misunderstood, hurt, and sometimes abused—all of our life experiences have taught us, there is NONE like You!!! You are the Source of our strength; You are the strength of our life; You are the lifter of our head, the joy in our heart and the peace in our soul. Thank You for being everything we need You to be; thank You for always loving us unconditionally. We pray each one desires to love You more…each one desires to worship You more…each one desires to praise You more—not just with our lips, but most importantly with the life we live. We pray each one desires to be more obedient to You and excited about using the gifts You have placed within us for YOUR GLORY! We pray You renew our spirit and help us to have a new determination to be all You designed us to be; and live the abundantly life You came to give us. We walk on by faith this day, trusting You to order our steps and lead us in Your way. We pray the smile someone needs today—we be available to smile, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Our Father in heaven. We thank You for waking us to this new day.  Yesterday we didn't say all we should have said, we didn’t do all we should have done, and in some cases we said and did too much; thank You for Your mercy.  Thank You for loving us through our mistakes, and for reassuring us of Your constant presence when we doubt.   Thank You for never giving up on us and for refusing to let go even when we're wrong.  Your love to us is amazing.   Today is a new day and we thank You for a fresh start and a new beginning.   We're excited about the great new things in store for us today.   We will keep moving forward, determined to be a blessing in all we say and do.  We say "no" to all distractions and "yes" to Your will for our life today.  We declare by faith, today is the first day of the best days of our life, we will rejoice and be glad, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Prayers go out to all those affected by the Hurricane Harvey in Texas &  Hurricanes Irma, Jose', and Katia that are happening in the Atlantic Ocean now and are heading towards Florida and the Bahamas in the Caribbean Islands this weekend. Praying for Mexico who experienced an 8.1 magnitude earthquake today.

Praying for our "Class of 1975"as they mourn the passing of two of our female Classmates within days of each other: Karmala Beasley (who passed on 9-1-17) and Collett Withers (who passed on 9-5-17). I'm truly saddened to hear of both of these ladies passings (but) I am grateful that God allowed us to know them. I pray God's blessings of comfort and peace to their families and may their memories sustain them.
"R.I.P. Dear Karmala and Collett" !!

There is none like You. No one else can touch our heart like You do. We can search throughout eternity and still we won’t fine anyone like You. Lord, we praise You for the gift of life. Things may not be as well as we would like them to be, but it is well with our soul because we’re still here to experience it all. We pray each one will show all we come in contact with today how grateful we are to still be here, by glorifying You in our smile, our walk and our talk. We pray each one will pursue peace and know You are for us and that is more than the whole world against us. It’s all good! We’re going forth today letting everyone know, it’s all good because we live, move and have our being in the Great I Am; we have all we need!!! It’s a great new day and we will rejoice and be glad in it, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Oh Lord, our God, how excellent is Your love toward us. Your love to us is amazing! Knowing all You know about us, still You give us mercy; You give us chance after chance to be all You designed us to be—all You desire is to be glorified in our life…You desire to be noticeable in our life. We pray one for another, help us to be aware of the fact that, everywhere we go there is someone watching us. What they see in us today may be a matter of life or death, we pray each one displays life. We pray You will be displayed in our walk, our talk and in the way we treat one another. We all have expectations, help us to channel our expectations in the right direction—only You can supply our every need. Help us to know if we trust You, we can always expect great! We pray for all who are hurting, disappointed, feeling betrayed, unable to forgive and walking in their feelings; open eyes of understanding, help us to see, we go through what we go through because we expected “them” to do what only You can do. Our prayer today is, “help us Lord to trust Your love to us more” in Jesus Name, Amen.

We worship Christ our Lord! You are a mighty God and we praise You for being mighty in our life. Thank You for the blessing of this beautiful day! We thank You for the blessing and privilege to still be here. We thank You for air to breathe, beauty to behold and a purpose to pursue. Our life has meaning because we live, move and have our being in You. We pray each one is excited about living, so excited that we will live to be a blessing today. We pray someone will be encouraged by our smile and inspired by our walk. We pray the words we speak and the actions we take will be motivated by our love to You. This is the day our faithful God has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it, no matter what, in Jesus Name, Amen.

What's new today? Or, is it just the same old-same old? It's amazing how, all the days of our life, God has made every day different; not one day has been repeated--God is creative like that! Yet, some are comfortable doing the same old-same old. The dream continues to lay dormant, because doing anything about it would mean doing something different--that's uncomfortable.

Do something different today; do something that makes you uncomfortable. What do you do every day out of habit? Don't do "that" today, be uncomfortable. Who do you just "have" to call every day? Don't call them today, be uncomfortable. Experience being uncomfortable today...tomorrow you will see it didn't kill you.

You have "Creative" living IN you, do something creative today. You don't know what to do? Try your purpose, that's what you were created to do. What is your purpose? You don’t know? Ask your Creator, Who's in position for you to be uncomfortable. God can’t wait to show the world why He created you; when will you trust God?

Think about it, the more comfortable you are, the less you feel creativity is necessary; without creativity, how will anyone know the Creator is at work in you?

To be comfortable or uncomfortable, that is the question.

Our Father in heaven, holy You are and holy You will always be. We’re so grateful, honored, and blessed to be able to talk to THE HOLY GOD and KNOW You are listening very attentively; not only are You listening, but You’ve already planned on what You already knew we would talk to You about. You told us we can come boldly, with great expectations; so we cast all our cares, concerns, troubles, heartache, pain, sickness and doubt to You. Help us to leave all we give to You, with You and stand on Your promises: to be with us always, and to always work all things together for our good. For all the questions we have, You are the answer; help us to ask You, then trust You. Help us today to be more attentive to You; help us to see You everywhere we look. You’re in the flowers, the grass, the trees, the sky, the sun—everywhere we look, You’re there, let it all remind us of truth—You’re with us everywhere we go. In whatever situation we face today, we know You’re with us, so we know we have the victory. We praise Your holy Name and we stand on tip-toe anticipation for the great things You have in store for us today, in Jesus Name, Amen

Our Father in heaven, we thank You for another day's journey. We thank You for yesterday's victories and we ask forgiveness for yesterday's mistakes. We praise You for another opportunity today to gain a closer walk with You. We pray one for another asking You to help us remember You see our need and You promised to supply all our need. Help us know the prerequisite for true guidance that cannot fail is to: trust You with all our heart, don’t lean to our own understanding, and before we do or say anything, talk to You about it, then wait for Your instructions. We pray for Your guidance this day, that everywhere we go we will go with divine direction. We pray every word we speak is seasoned with grace; and all that we do will glorify our faithful God. We ask You to rain down a spirit of encouragement on each of us, and that we be reminded of the truth; You are God the only living God, You love us, and there is nothing any person, circumstance or situation can do to separate us from Your love. Your love to us means we have guaranteed victory! We give You praise, in Jesus Name, Amen.
