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.

Daily Word - Divine Order

In sync with divine order, I realize my greatest potential.

There is a spiritual law and order that governs all life. Nothing and no one can break this law.

When acting out of alignment with divine order, I might struggle with minimal success to accomplish even the smallest of goals. Yet when I consciously align my will and actions with the natural, orderly outworking of the Universe, I tap into a fountainhead of limitless imaginative and creative power. Spirit, which by nature is expressive, enfuses me with a rich supply of divine ideas uniquely suited to my soul.

As I willingly surrender to the flow of Spirit, I experience synchronous events as an everyday occurrence. I realize my greatest dreams with absolute peace, grace, and ease.

My life is in sync with divine order.

Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

Compelled By The Love Of God

Lord Jesus, thank You for coming to our rescue when we were lost and helpless in our sins. Help those of us who have been rescued to share the lifeline of Your love who are still trapped.

When you have been rescued, you want to rescue others.

God's Clear Direction

We praise You, O Lord, with words, with song, and with our lives. We offer You our hearts in response to Your great power, loving provision, and constant care.

We can never praise Jesus too much!

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into His courts. ( Psalm 96:8 )

Today's Word - Magic

When I was younger I was entranced with stories of magic. I devoured books where wizards and warriors battled the powers of darkness in strange worlds. I rejoiced when they triumphed bringing peace and happiness to their lands. I guess like most of the readers of these stories I secretly wished for magical powers for myself. I wanted to be able to magically make my pain disappear, to make my problems go away, and to have power over this world that so often has power over us.

As I got older, however, I realized that there was no such thing as magic and the harsh reality of life set in. I struggled through a long period of poverty. I had daily pain from a back injury that never healed right. I felt sadness and sorrow when both of my sons were diagnosed with Autism. I still sometimes daydreamed of magic but in time even that faded away.

Then one day I am not sure when I began to discover a different kind of magic. This magic grew stronger in my heart, soul, and mind day by day and year by year. This magic was called LOVE. This magic connected me to God, because God is love. It also connected me to my own highest self and to all of the other souls in this world. It didn’t eliminate my poverty but it made every day of my life feel richer. It didn’t make my back pain go away but it helped me deal with it so much better. It didn’t cure my sons’ Autism, but it helped me see them as the beautiful, loving, eternal, and joyful souls that they truly are. It didn’t make me a wizard or a warrior but it helped me to dispel the darkness of this world with my own light.

There is such a thing as magic in this world. There is such a thing as magic in each one of us. This magic is called LOVE. May you choose it, share it, and live in it every single day of your life. May you use it to help others, to heal this world, and to build a bridge to Heaven.

Finding Comfort In Each Other

Heavenly Father, help me to grow in gentleness and patience toward others. Show me how to love others, even when we may have differences.

We keep unity by being in the Spirit.

We grow strong when we serve the Lord.

Daily Word - Wonder

I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made.

When I look into the eyes of a child, I see wonder, excitement, and a questioning spirit. Everything a child sees is remarkable and unique.

I try to see my own world through this lens of newness. The sound of laughter, the glisten of frost or dew in the morning sunlight, the people I meet … all are reminders of the creative power of the universe.
I, too, am a wonder. I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made. I look around and see beauty in everyone and everything I encounter. I am grateful for the ability to recognize the uniqueness of the world in which I live.

Each day opens to new experiences, thoughts, and wonders.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.—Psalm 139:14

Daily Word - Guidance

I open my mind to the light of my being and answers are revealed.

When there are life-changing decisions to make, I keep my mind open to divine guidance. I am not alone in any time of decision-making.

There is the light within me that shines the wisdom of God on right choices. This light is mine each time I open my mind to the all-knowingness of God.

I may wonder how I can keep centered and calm when there are so many last-minute items on my to-do list. I begin by changing my focus from worry to divine guidance and feel immediate relief. My mind is clear of clutter, and I’m ready to follow where I am guided, which in truth was always available to me.
The wisdom of God is my guide, each day, each step of the way.

But anyone united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.—1 Corinthians 6:17

Kindness Comes From The Heart

Forgive me, Lord, when I bring anger into a situation. Soften my heart and help me use my words to encourage others.

The knowledge that God has loved me beyond all limits will compel me to go into the world to love others in the same way.
