Sweet P’s – Prayer, Petition, & Praise

SweetPs375x375-1

with Tiffany @ Tea with Tiffany

Precious heavenly Father...today I bring my family to lay at your feet...I thank You for each one You have blessed me with, Lord...because that’s what they are...blessings from You...

You know how different each one is because You created them that way...

One by one...You know their needs...and every...single...one...is important to You...

Many of them need healing...both physical...and spiritual...financial burdens weigh heavy...there are hearts that have been broken...and other hearts so stony, they need a chisel to get through to them...

One heart especially is dealing with depression that has turned into hopelessness...

Hear my plea, Lord, to supply spiritual fullness to each one...they all know about you, God, but I cry for them to KNOW YOU...completely...surrendering all...turning every care and burden over to You...totally...

You are coming soon...and it grieves my heart to think of any of them not being ready to see You face to face...please open eyes and soften hardened hearts...so that they may feel the urgency of kneeling at Your feet...now...before it is too late...tomorrow is too late...we are only guaranteed right now...

Your word says...

You will seek me and find me

when you seek me with all your heart.

That’s my cry today, that they find You...In Jesus’ sweet, holy name...amen...

I have someone VERY CLOSE to me who doesn't know the Lord (yet!!). My prayer is that God would give this person the DESIRE to seek Him...

Thank you for sharing your heart - it spoke for mine, too.

GOD BLESS!

Amen. Oh, AMEN!

Sandy said...

Unfortunately, very few of my
family members are ready to
meet the Lord, as with my
husband's family. We are ever
in prayer for their hearts to
be softened toward the One who
longs to give His love to them.
Blessings,
Sandy

AMEN!

Blessed Sonday morning Karen...
beautiful "P" to offer up today & every day... our loved ones to KNOW Him! Love how you worded that!!!
Standing with you on each "p"...
the time is now!

I pray for HOPE where there is hopelessness; spiritual fullness instead of emptiness or just not full of God yet; softened hearts in place of any hardness; financial burdens gone and bounty overflowing of His prosperity; riches abounding; seeking Him above all else, not just coming to Him but running to Him; healing spiritually & physically; all burdens lifted and blessings flowing on each one!

We serve & KNOW a GREAT GOD that hears our every prayer; each "P"
from one of those "P"s
Peace, my friend... I'm so thankful for you!!!

Karen - this is a beautiful, heartfelt prayer. I also have family members who do not know the Lord and it is my prayer that they come to the knowledge of God's salvation.

Blessings,

Barbara said...

Praise God, I truly enjoyed this post, 3 P's, Prayer is the most important one, to get our petitions to the lord, we must pray, Prayer is our way of talking to our heavenly Father, if we cannot pray then we will not be able to praise, Prayer is asking, and praise is thanking, hugs my friend, and thank you again for this special message, Blessings, Barbara

Such a beautiful beautiful prayer that I prayed along and echoed up to the heavens with you for your family and for a few in my family blood line.

I love your wording...so deep and rich in love to the Lord.

You bless me my friend...more than you know.

I thank you with all of my heart for your many prayers for us. You are a faithful one.

Love you,
Alleluiabelle

Tea with Tiffany said...

Oh Karen, this is precious. Your prayers for loved ones to know Jesus is mine too. I so feel the time getting closer. Thank you for writing words that we are all praying with you, both for your precious family and our own. I want God's family to include the whole world. I don't want one to miss this invitation to dine with the King.

Thank you for joining me and reminding me to keep praying for those I love to know Jesus.

Hugs and much love,

Tiffany
