The Prayers of Black Women: Low Self-Esteem Prayer

Lord for the past couple of weeks I have notice people searching for prayers on low self-esteem.  So today Lord I bring those that suffer from lack of confidence to you.  Lord I am asking you to help them overcome whatever stole their self-assurance.  Lord I’m asking you to gently speak in their ear that if they had been the only person in the world, you would have come from Heaven and saved them alone.  Lord, I’m praying today that they understand they are special and you love them much more than any mortal man.  I’m asking Lord that you wrap your loving spiritual arms around them.  Allow their wounded souls to nestle in your spiritual being and take comfort in your ability to heal.  I’m asking Lord that you give them hope by affirming them as only you can.  I’m asking Lord that you give them a spirit to forgive the person or persons that have hurt them as they move on with life.

Lord please help them to understand you want us to have good thoughts, and that includes how we feel about ourselves.  For Psalm 19:14 states:

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

And Lord thank you for loving me.

Your daughter,

Inspirational Fridays: What Ever Happened to The All American Dream?

Today as I was surfing the web for international inspiration I stumbled across the blog of Fahrenheit Creative Group.  The admin of this wonderful blog gives people motivational and inspirational quotes and messages to live by.  After stumbling upon this wonderful blog site I almost forgot what I was looking for.

Oh.  Yeah.  I was searching for something that could be passed on to the American nation in a time of uncertainty.

I guess after listening to the opinions of those in my circle about America’s current insufficient funds status I have found their comments mind-boggling.  I really want to respond with “do you really believe that crap your voicing!”  And my response would not be in question form.  I would hope my statement would awaken their intellect in using commonsense [which is no longer common].

It seems everybody is running on scarcity.

Personally, I think the American people, that are generations rooted by birth, are tired of feeling left out.  Especially when it comes to the freebies given to those that are illegally living in our country and profiting from the American overtaxed entitlement programs.

It seems that everyone has lost sight of what made America great.  The economical dismay of our economy has brought forth spirits of defeat and disdain.  Especially for those we find different from our personal and professional communities.   The havoc that is being wreaked on lives as dreams are no longer a vision of hope makes me ask:  What ever happened to the all American dream?

One secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
–Benjamin Disraeli

The American dream died when the government made it easy for a person to be given a fish when hungry.  And the quest for self-worth plummeted when the public demanded more entitlement programs from their local and state government officials.  And, sadly, these programs were implemented.  As I see things, these handouts removed the instinct for self-preservation.  And hinders people to remember and believe in a quote from our founding fathers’:

That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

Virginia Declaration of Rights

Remember only very few have profited from small government handouts and found true happiness.
