30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 19

Father, thank you for breathing new life into our dry bones.

Oh Lord when we feel like a wrung out old rag from life, feeling depleted, remind us what You can do...

"This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!" (Ezekiel 37:5)

30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 18

Oh Lord, today I am so thankful when I was paralyzed by fear of the future and regret for the past that You sent people in my path to carry me back to You. 

Father, today I am grateful for the people that You have put in our lives to "carry our cot". Lord, I think about the paralyzed man, who had 4 friends that carried his cot and lowered him down to Jesus. You forgave his sins first, and then tole him to Arise, and toss away his cot and walk home!! 

You have sent those "cot carriers" to us. Help us to recognize them, thank them, and then be a "cot carrier" for someone else. I don't want to be good at accumulating more stuff to fill up my temporary house on earth! God, I want to be successful at accumulating more people to fill up your house, for eternity. -In Jesus' name, Amen. 

Who has "carried your cot"?
