30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 14: Answered Prayers

Father, thank You for answering the prayers that we haven't even had the guts to ask You for. 

I am struck with deep appreciation that You are a gracious and loving father that provides for us things we don't even realize that we need; and withholds the things we think we need, but You know will harm us. 

For You say, "I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!" -Isaiah 65:24 

Lord, help us to see the evidence of this in our life!  Forgive us for begging for the wrong things, and help us to...well...just shut up and trust You.   -In Jesus' name, Amen. 

 

How has God answered You lately?

30 Days of Thankful Prayers: Day 13

God, today I am thankful for Your promise of an ABUNDANT life.  Oh Lord help us to move beyond a "survivalist" mentality, and into the ABUNDANT life You have called us to!  

For You say, "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)" -John 10:10 (Amplified) 

Father, show us the ways we can enjoy our lives more, show us the abundance that You have already provided, and help it to overflow on those around us.  -In Jesus name, Amen.
