Protected Because of Prayer

Several of us prayed for safety as we helped our friends move from one place in the city to another.

We discussed these prayers, because during the move, one of us darted out in front of a car he hadn’t seen to stop a run away moving cart. The car screeched to a stop as the man’s hands landed on the car’s hood.

No one was hurt.

I don’t want to think about might have been if we hadn’t prayed.

A Prayer for the Distressed – 2

Turn to me
Have mercy
I am alone
In deep distress.
My problems
Go from bad to worse.
Save me from them all!
Feel my pain
See my trouble.
Forgive all my sins.

See my enemies
They hate me.
Protect me!
Do not let me be disgraced,
In you I take refuge.
May integrity and honesty protect me,
I put my hope in you.

from Psalm 25:16-21 NLT

Her Parting Words

A woman of God left this earth last week. Her life-long faith never faltered. Her love never ended. She didn’t just know her Bible. She lived it.

She knew she was dying of cancer, so she planned her funeral. This is last Bible verse she wanted read, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6).”
