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.

DeepCommunication With God Happens When We Keep Praying

Dea Father, We often struggle to spend time with You Help us to make the time, and help us sense Your goodness and presence.

There is never a day when we don't need to pray.

Pray continually ( 1 Thess. 5:17 )

I have always loved to sing. When I was a boy I sang in church, in my room, and even in my backyard. Growing up I always sang along with the songs on the radio. These days I sing in the shower. I sing when I walk my dogs. I sing when I do the dishes. My wonderful, loving, tech-savvy daughter has even downloaded music from the internet and made her old school Dad CD’s so I can sing along with all of my favorite songs.

There is one problem, though. While I love to sing, the sound coming from my voice never seems to match the sound I hear in my soul. It always comes out too high, too scratchy, and way too off-key. I have seen people wince when I sang near them. I have had my dogs join in when I sang too loudly. I once heard myself sing on tape and wondered how that voice could have possibly come out of my mouth. I am sure that even my guardian angels have had to stick their fingers in their ears many times over the years. I have learned to sing quietly then unless I am alone. Then I belt out my songs so all of Heaven can hear. I am sure God doesn’t mind my off- key voice as long as I am “Making a joyful noise.”

Thankfully, there is more than one way to sing in this life. We all can sing out our love and joy by what we do. We all can share the music within us with the lives we lead. We can shine our smiles. We can share our laughter. We can open our arms for a hug. We can pass on a kiss or a kind word. We can rescue a stray dog or cat. We can help the poor and visit the lonely. We nurse the sick and uplift the fallen We can encourage everyone around us. We can spread our joy. We can make our lives a living testament of goodness. We can love others the way God loves us: unconditionally! Make your life sing then. Sing well. Sing long. Sing with all the light and love in your soul!

Psalms 98:4 - Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Dear, Lord, Help me to see where help is needed, and help me to provide that help. Thank You for the comfort You give, Help me to share it.

Comfort receives should be comfort shared.

Dear Lord Thank You for providing the Church building so I can worship and fellowship WITH my fellow brothers and sisters.

I am blessed beyond measure.

Living in a state of grace is living in an awareness that God’s compassion and blessings are mine—always and forever. In his book The Universe Is Calling, Unity minister Eric Butterworth wrote, “There is an upward pull of the universe, ever seeking to lift you to the heights of your divine nature. It is as real and as inexorable as the force of gravity.”

God’s grace is much like gravity, always in effect in my life. And similar to the law of gravity, spiritual law supports me. I experience peace and tranquility when I remember that God’s grace provides me with all that I need.

I am loved unconditionally and blessed beyond measure. I give thanks for God’s grace and I relax into my good.

Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.—Hebrews 4:16

Lord, You have reclaimed us, and You are remaking us. Thank You for Your love and Your care despite our self-centered and distinctive ways. Thank You for true forgiveness and unity in You.

God will one day restore all the beauty lost forever.

My bag's are packed and I am ready to go Jesus is coming soon.

We are one in Spirit.

We are all created from the same spiritual substance—every person, every creature, every atom, every cell. Still, some people have the perception that we are separate from each other.

Despite our differences—ethnicities, backgrounds, locales, languages, and more—we are the same. We are so much more than the labels and limitations we place on each other and ourselves. Beneath the surface the same invisible force of Spirit is at work within us.

So rather than identifying others by race, profession, or gender, let’s choose to treat each other as children of the Divine, united by our spiritual lineage. We share the same quality of Spirit, the same universal center of Truth. We are perfect and eternal beings. We are one in Spirit.

There is one body and one Spirit.—Ephesians 4:4

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

O Lord,
You are abounding with grace and mercy for me! I praise Your name! I ask that You provide me with necessary things and not only things that I want. My “wants” can get in the way of You. If there is something that will make me stumble today, I pray that You will keep it from me. My needs are necessary. My wants are not. I can’t be effective if my “wants” are top priority. Lord, I am Your humble servant. Take away all “wants” that are not good for me, Lord! I love You! Amen
