JAP Prayer Chain

Hosted by Dana Ramsey
Group active since Mon, Dec 20, 2010

After reading some of the comments on other discussion groups I thought it would be a great idea to have a group dedicated to a prayer chain. This group would be an outlet for those in need of support, love and prayers during difficult times in their lives. This way they can come to one place, and other members will have their names and be able to add them to their prayer list. In these troubling and difficult times that we are all facing I think it is needed.

Failing Memories

Dear Lord, You are such an amazing comfort to us. Thank You that our salvation and spiritual well-being does not depend on our failing minds and bodies, but on You and Your faithfulness to Your Word.

God's promises never fail.

This world is full of beautiful people, but you would never know it by asking them. In my life I have seen countless beautiful faces, smiles, eyes, hair, laughs, personalities, bodies, and souls, yet I have never seen one person who admitted to how beautiful they were.

I have heard people talk about how old, ugly, fat, grey, wrinkled, out of shape, dumb, and lazy they were. If I asked any of them to admit to their own beauty, even to the beauty of their hearts and souls, however, all I would get was their denials.

Why is it seen as perfectly acceptable to constantly put ourselves down, but the height of arrogance to admit to our own beauty, goodness, and worth? There is a wonderful saying that goes, "God doesn't make junk."

Since we are all wonderful Children of God, we shouldn't put down God's work with these "junk" labels. God didn't put us here to be ugly, stupid, or worthless. God put us here to be beautiful, wise, and loving.

Let's stop being our own worse critics then and start living up to God's view of us. The next time you look in the mirror then see who is really there. Look at the light in the eyes, the joy in the smile, the happiness in the laugh, and the love in the soul.

Look at the true beauty that is you. Notice that glorious Child of God who is staring back at you from the looking glass. That is who you really are. You are not your extra pounds, grey hair, wrinkles, uneven teeth, bald head, or even dumb mistakes.

You are instead that bright, beautiful, and glowing love and joy that is within. Don't ever confuse the soul inside of you with the body that carries it around. Take my word for it. You are beautiful. You are wonderful. You are special. Now go out and share that beautiful, glorious, loving, and joyous person you are with the world.

Pray To Maintain Vigilance, Remain Watchful

Dear Lord Jesus, I know my spirit is willing, but my body is weak. Help me to watch and pray today for myself and others.

Satan is powerless against the power of Christ!

This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it ( Psalm 118:24 )

God-life within assures me that all is well.

Deep inside me is a truth I want to know consciously all the time. When I am centered in it, I know all is well in my life and the world. When I am aware of it, there is no room for struggle or problems of any kind. I find it in the place the psalmist called “the secret place of the Most High.”

I simply become still and rest my attention on God-life within. Then I, too, discover this secret place where the highest truth dwells. I meet God at the core of my being. Here I find solace, passion, joy, and a sense of oneness with all life. Resting in the Silence, I hear and see through spiritual ears and eyes.

No matter the circumstances of life, I know this deeply seeded and ever-available truth: God is here and all is well.

You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.—Psalm 51:6

I commit to higher expressions of speech, thought, and action.

Aristotle taught, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” To be the best expression of the Christ that I can be, I revisit my behaviors and routines. Where needed, I replace unhealthy habits with life-affirming ones.

If I find that I regularly complain, I make a concerted effort to express gratitude. If I have lapsed into mindless routines, such as snacking or binge-watching television, I insert a new activity into that same time slot, such as walking, reading, praying, or meditating.

As I consciously replace ineffective habits with more constructive ones, I feel happier, more peaceful, and energetic—more like my true self—each day.

Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.—1 Timothy 4:15

His Offer Of Escape

Dear Father God, help me to see the way of escape You offer when I am tempted. Give me the strength to accept Your help. Help me to know my needs from my desires so I can stay faithful to You. I know this is Your desire for me, and I thank You that You are at work in me.

Great blessings are often followed by great temptations.

The healing life of God renews and strengthens me.

Life can be exhilarating, yet exhausting, which is why times of rest are important to my mental and physical well-being. I take time each day to rest and recharge my spiritual battery by spending time in prayer.

In the quiet of prayer, I affirm: The healing life of God renews me. My body relaxes in the safety of God’s presence; I am comforted and soothed by God’s healing touch. My mind and body are in unity with God’s healing life.

The healing life of God strengthens me. In unity with God’s healing life, I feel that life flowing through every cell and organ of my body, strengthening me and making me whole and well.

With faith I affirm: The healing life of God renews and strengthens me.

Be renewed in the spirit of your minds.—Ephesians 4:23
