Sweet P’s – Life

SweetPs375x375-1 with Tiffany @ Tea with Tiffany

Heavenly Father, thank you today for another week of life. Thank you for the good things that happened and thank you for the things that were not so good. You taught me lessons with the those not so good things, and I know You do that because You love me so.

My soul has sung many songs this week to You, and I can truly say, You are better than life...all the good things...all the wonders...are nothing when compared with Your glory...a life without You is no life at all...

Father God…..many are hurting this week...and You know that in our grief...we sometimes need reminders of the glorious life with You...

A sister said farewell to a life long friend...an old friend of mine is nearing the 1 year anniversary of losing her dad...and the almost 3000 lives that were lost 9 years ago on that tragic day in September...hearts still ache...and tears still flow...

Please comfort them, Lord, and pour out a healing rain of compassion that will soak through any despair...lift up their eyes so they may see Your love and mercy that will soothe their scars of bitterness...and fill them with hope for the future...in a life with You...

I praise You, God, today and every day, for Who You are...

My Saviour and Redeemer...

My Living Water and Bread of Life...

My Teacher and Strong Tower...

My Everything...

You are better than life...

I give You all the honor and all the glory...

In Jesus’ name...

Amen.

Hi Karen,

Thank you for interceding in prayer. Your words, "You are better than life" speaks to me as a fellow believer. I'm reminded of Psalm 34:8 which says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him."

God is our refuge and strength...

Blessings and peace.

Amen.

Father God, thank You for Karen's prayer. Thank You for the way You will continue to heal the hearts of those from the 9/11 tragedy. I too grieve when I remember. It's unbelievable to think people could do such a thing. Please continue to mend the brokenhearted. Use Your people through prayer and loving action. In Jesus name, Amen..

Karen, thank you for praying along with me and others. I feel more connected as we pray. Isn't God good?

Agreeing with you in your praises for who He is and your petitions for those who are hurting. It seems that everyday, I hear of another dear friend with such deep heartache. Praise God we can approach Him, confident that He hears and answers.

Thanks for remembering all of those still hurting after 9/11. Sometimes it seems so distant, but there are many still feeling the impact years later.

Oh to know He is better than life. When face to face with death and loss then it is REAL to your soul. A painful experience to be sure yet it somehow strengthen and magnifies your faith...to REALLY TRULY KNOW that He IS better than life. Blesings sister.

Wanda said...

Amen! Agreeing with you in prayer Karen.

Denise said...

Peggy said...

Blessings Karen... Had I only came and soaked in this beautiful prayer!
(sigh)

HE IS BETTER THAN LIFE! (I know where this is going)!

As I read your heartfelt intercession, my heart broke. I'm so sorry for the hurting that you already had to support the hurting this week, then I add to your "many". And also the many senseless loss of lives on 9-11! How do you compare to such immense loss!

Yes, HE is better than LIFE...
Comforter, Healer, Savior, Redeemer
all HE IS... what a beautiful prayer of praise & glory to Him!

What a wonderful God that cares so much about each of His children! Thank you for showing us how HE IS so much more and Better than Life!
When He is Our Life! Our Everything! We can rely on Him but what about the many without Him!

Thank you Karen for your heart!
Peace,
Peggy
