God, You Hear Me

March 14, 2013

Today’s Reflection

YOU HEAR ME, O GOD. You know my voice. You see my heart. Help me to pray, not so much to convince you of who I am and what I need but to help me understand who I am and what I need. And in my understanding, help me to be caring and concerned for others and for this world so loved by you. Amen.

My Shepherd knows my voice – and knows where I need to go. Father – thank You for Your faithfulness. You reveal things to me at the perfect time, in the perfect amount. That is grace.

How could any believer not want what is in this prayer? I am very thankful that God is always there and wants a relationship with us.

Lord I pray for those too busy to pray and for those searching for you.
Two different spectrums, those distracted by the world, and those who realize that You are most important. May the distracted change course and may those searching be fulfilled. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Thank you Lord, Erich, is back studying and things are going well, yes, a little struggle here and there, but generally going well.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established
blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own
but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
