DAILY PRAYERS: Thursday, February 14, 2013
Father God, we humble ourselves and come before you today with prayers of confession. Father, we confess by name those things that we did, said and thought that were not pleasing to you. Father, we ask forgiveness for the sins of commission – the things we’ve done, that you told us not to do, and for the sins of omission – the things that you told us to do, that we’ve left undone. Please touch our hearts. We ask Lord, that you would cleanse us, purge us and purify us from the inside out. Please touch our will, our motives, our attitude and our emotions. May we be transformed and may our lives be pleasing unto you. We thank you in advance for having your way. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.", "We fast and pray today with a heart of thanksgiving and praise. Dear Lord, we thank you for bringing us through another year, another month, another day, another hour. In spite of the circumstances that may face us at home, on our jobs, at school, in our finances, or in our relationships, we choose to give you praise. For there is no other like you and you are worthy of all of the glory and praise. You are all seeing, all knowing, merciful, gracious and so kind. Your name is matchless and your love is boundless. You are a keeper, a protector, a provider, a healer, a counselor and a way maker; Father truly there is none like you. “I will praise you with my whole heart; before the ‘gods’ I will sing your praise. I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and faithfulness.” (Psalm 138:1-2) Thank you for every blessing and for your everlasting love. We love you Lord and we thank you in advance for all you are doing in our hearts. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen."
We made it past day one!! We have 39 more days to go. Today I started my morning off with a glass of cranberry juice and some fried potatoes. i have carrots as well as salsa and tortilla chips to snack on. For lunch I am having a spinach salad with cucumbers and strawberrys. For dinner brown rice and beans. Last night I had a bad headache so i went to bed around 9pm. Whenever you feel hungry pray and drink water or 100% juice. If that doesn't help eat fruit or veggie as a snack in between meals.
Happy Valentines day. - xoxo
