I pray LORD that I may always wait for you and that you will hear my cry,
wherever I may be at any time here on this earth.
I pray that The LORD hears your cry today
for what ever your needs may be.
Also that you may have peace in your heart today. Amen.

Yes we do need to Pray.
Well we do need to have patience even to pray sometimes, because time gets away from us and we think we will wait until a later time. Then we find that the day has gone and we did not find that (later time) to pray. If only we could start the day off with a prayer how much better our day may be. It does take patience to let go of other things we would like to be doing and to just sit and pray for a while. Even five or ten minutes to start with if you are not used to sitting alone and having a quiet time instead of rushing about to get things done. After all most things will not run away they will still be there waiting for us to do. Unless of course there is something really urgent that needs to be done then we must get on and do it. * I like to think of this Painting that I painted as The Dove of Peace.
We do need peace in our hearts most times when we find the patience to sit and pray.
The Lord God gives us patience and peace when we are going through a difficult situation.
But the thing is we do need to ask Him.
Also He will comfort us when we do cry out to Him.
Jesus taught us to pray His special Prayer ‘The Lords Prayer’
Which is best to pray if you are not sure how to pray because that
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?
Even sinners love those who love them!
That’s true isn’t it! But as Christians we are meant to love the unlovely, just as Jesus did – to help them, befriend them, most of all to show them the love of Jesus. Even in our own families there are relatives that we feel we cannot be with for long, we have to overcome that feeling and remember God made them and we are not only to tolerate them but to love them. It can be a bit of a problem that Scripture but remember we are to overcome and nothing is impossible with God. So we had better ask Him for His grace to help us. It’s amazing what happens when we ask His help.

At this particular time where most of us have to stay indoors or isolated because of the Corona Virus the above reading is worth thinking about – because lots of families will be shut in together and will miss the freedom of going out to work or play.
It may be difficult to all get along together at close quarters for the 14 days that our Government wants us to do.
But it is the best thing that we can do to help our family and friends also our work mates or colleagues.
So let us do it with a good grace remembering that it is not as bad as what Jesus had to endure for us.
I Pray that you all keep well and happy at this present time and will be able to help where needed if someone less fortunate than yourself needs help for shopping etc., if they are incapacitated or isolated with no family to help them.
May GOD BLESS YOU and keep you and your love ones safe.
She said, “may your servant find favour in your eyes” Then she went her way and ate something and her face was no longer downcast.
Today, let us too find favour in Our Father God’s eyes, let us think of something nice to do for Him today, then we too can celebrate with something good to eat and our face need not be downcast.
The story is about Hannah the Mother of Samuel who was praying in her heart to God in the Temple. As her lips were moving they thought she was drunk as no words were coming out of her mouth.
It is good to remember that we do not always have to pray out loud for our Father in Heaven to hear what we are praying and hoping for in our hearts.
Maybe today we can do something nice for someone, then we need not feel downcast……(that’s if we were in the first place) But what ever we do – it should be done for the Lord. It could be just a kind word for someone, or a phone call to keep in touch. If we help someone in anyway at all that would be a blessing for them. So if Jesus is your Lord and Saviour – what a lovely thing to do something nice for Him today. One Special thing to do is to pray for someone and ask that God would kindly bless them. They do not need to know that you have prayed for them. God our Father in Heaven will hear the prayers of your heart just as He did with Hannah, Samuel’s Mother as it says so in The Bible.
Hear is a link to – Book of Prayers – this is a help for people who are not sure how or what to pray for and a reminder to some of us that there are other things and people that need our prayer. I hope it will be useful to many especially to new Christians if they cannot find the help they need.
