¹²While Jesus was in one of the town, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” ¹³Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing.” he said. “Be Clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him. 14Then Jesus ordered him, “Don’t tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.“
Lord, some people talk too much because they want other’s to hear their “know it all” speeches; then again some people talk too much because of nerves chatter; and, then, Lord, some people talk too much because of self-absorption. But this prayer is for those that talk to much because of emotional and mental pain that overflows into their daily conversations.
Lord, help the person that is in emotional or mental pain to see that you enter into their lives everyday. Lord help them to understand you know their spirits are filled with worries. Let them know Lord they are no different from the man with leprosy when it comes to your unyielding love for your creation. Lord, allow them to feel your presence; and gently convey to their spirits that you stand waiting to heal their brokenness. Lord, give them the words to ask in prayer for guidance and healing as they create a dialogue between you and them.
I am asking for you to do these things Lord because: I have found those that unwittingly share life experiences have been greatly wounded. And because of their sorrows I come humbly before your Throne of Grace. So, once again, Lord, I am asking for divine healing for those that talk too much as they try to ease their emotional and mental pains. Lord, I ask that they find a true friend in you. Lord, I pray that you begin to peel the layers of untold anguish from their unconscious minds. Exposing their raw emotions for what they are as you help them to deal with each heartache privately. For in lessening their spiritual suffering they can find hope. And in finding hope they will find wisdom in who to share your blessings among and their tribulations with.
Lord, I went to sleep way too early yesterday evening. And when I woke I was at a lost. I wasn’t sure what to do with my time. So I began to search for a young man who was on my heart. When I could not find him I decided to read post on my Facebook account. And then Lord I came across the below post of a friend that is fighting cancer:
Sometimes I wish I could just close my eyes & disappear….
Lord, I responded with: “If you could do that then I would miss you; and the world would be minus a remarkable woman. Sending you a hug from the beautiful state of Colorado.”
Lord, I don’t know the ramifications of her health challenge but you do. I don’t know how strong her emotional and mental support system is, but you do. And, Lord, I don’t know how supportive her medical team is, but you do. But I do know Lord, her illness and concerns are bigger than she and I can handle, therefore, I am bringing them to you.
Please Lord, give her your courage. I’m asking that peace be still in her life. I’m praying that joy won’t wait to visit but that it will stop by today and continue to visit everyday. I’m asking Lord that you give her body the strength to fight for wellness. I’m praying Lord that you will put a joyful song in her heart; and give her unmovable faith in your abilities. I’m praying for her medical team. I’m asking Lord that she has the best doctor’s in her state, city, or town giving her medical attention. I’m asking Lord that she has favor with each medical staff that comes across her path. I’m asking for emotional blessings for her family, friends, and loved ones. I’m asking Lord that you please hold her hand and let her know you are walking with her on this journey. And most of all I’m asking that she no longer wants to close her eyes and disappear.
Lord, I sharing one of my favorite songs with those that need to hear something spiritually uplifting.
Lord thank you for all you’ve done for me! Yes! You have kept me and your mercies have been new every morning.
Lord, this morning I’m praying for those that are lonely in spirit, for those that are losing hope, for those that have lost hope, for those that are hungry not only for natural food but spiritual food as well. I’m praying for those that have been evicted, for those that have lost their homes to foreclosure or short-sale. I’m praying for those that have lost their jobs or means of financial support. I’m praying for those that have lost their transportation. Lord, I’m praying for those that have been victimized by the greed of other’s. I’m praying for young men and women that feel they are not loved. I’m praying Lord that you will show the young [and old] your unconditional love. I’m praying for those that are alcoholics this morning. I’m praying for the families that have drugged addicted grand-parents, parents, children, and family members. I’m praying for those that are hooked on drugs. I’m praying for parents that have lost their children to death. I’m praying for the grieving husbands and wives that have also lost their spouses to death. I’m praying for those that are grieving the loss of someone. I’m praying for those that have been newly divorced and feel void of emotions and can’t see their way clear. Lord, I’m praying for the seen and unseen needs of those you deeply love. Lord, I’m asking that you bring comfort to your people.
I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten– the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm — my great army that I sent among you. ~Joel 2.25
