The Prayers of Black Women

February 21

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Prayer

Father God in a world that demands much, spiritual renewal is needed daily. Sadly, the process of regenerating one’s mind is grossly overlooked because of the demands of life. As a result, many that love you are unable to take hold of your promise; therefore, today’s request is asking for you to fill your empty vessels with peace that will allow the renewing of the spirit. Amen

January 28

The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,

Deuteronomy 1:30 NIV

Sometimes people lose sight of their main goal(s) when they become distracted by fear. Goals are awesome dreams waiting to be born that are sometimes aborted because of conflict supported by self-doubt. Let’s pray.

PRAYER

Father God, we come to you seeking refuge. Refuge for our souls and our aspirations. Give our hearts peace concerning the fate of goals that are seemingly in jeopardy because of enemies. Block their efforts and never let us be afraid of their weapons as we take hold of your promises. Amen

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

For different reasons people will indirectly/directly involve you in their insanity. And! As long as you’re sitting on the sidelines you can opt to get off the rollercoaster of madness. Hopefully before it’s too late. Because when you start playing their game! With their rules! And! With their agenda you lose everything that makes life a wonderful journey, self-worth. Let’s Pray!

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for another day. Trouble surrounds me. Keep my soul at peace during the storm and my eyes on Christ. Pepper my words with your strength and your love when I speak. Give my heart a song to sing and let my feet dance and rejoice in your goodness. Amen

The Prayer’s of Black Women: Praying Mental Burnout

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.  Matthew 6:9 – 13

Lord for many people this has been a stressful week.  And I know one of those people personally.  She is the reason for this prayer.

Her name is Sandy.  My friend Sandy is mentally tired.  She has a few medical issues; and, Lord, despite her health challenges she continues to try to work in your vineyard.   She has done more than her share in making sure the women in the group get coupons each week.  She made sure we knew what stores had the best deals.  Lord, she updated her email “free and cheap list” to us everyday!  Lord, she made sure to update the coupon log week.  And with all that she was doing no one could send her photos of items on sale.  She didn’t ask much of us and she gave more than people were willing to give.  Please heal her from the spirit of burnout.  Give her a second wind of breath for our coupon ministry.  Show her you are walking by her side and she is not alone.

Lord this week Christy has decided she would not help us get coupons for our ministry.  Christy’s decision is weighing heavy on Sandy’s heart because it has come when our ministry does not have another avenue to collect coupons in abundance.  And Sandy is trying to mentally and emotionally accept the door being closed; therefore, in her efforts of accepting our groups fate she has realized she has neglected her professional and personal duties.

I’m not sure why Christy will no longer collect coupons for our group but you do.  And when it comes to Christy, Lord, I pray that you bless her for being a wonderful blessing to us.  I pray your protection over her newest adventure as I wish her well.

Lord I ask that you help us to keep the group together by opening up avenues for us to get coupons in abundance.  Your word says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”  Malachi 3:10

Lord, I believe in your ability!  I claim the coupon blessings in your Holy name!

Lord, in closing my prayer for this moment, I humbly ask that you please help Sandy and others like Sandy to find a balance between ministry work, professional and personal responsibilities.  Amen

Quote for Today: Cherish Your Gifts

…treasure what it means to do a day’s work. It’s our one and only chance to do something productive today, and it’s certainly not available to someone merely because he is the high bidder. A day’s work is your chance to do art, to create a gift, to do something that matters. As your work gets better and your art becomes more important, competition for your gifts will increase and you’ll discover that you can be choosier about whom you give them to.  ~Seth Godin
