A Prayer — God with Me

When I woke up this morning, God was there.

As I enjoyed my morning coffee, God was with me.

When I had breakfast and got ready for the day, God was there.

As I traveled to and from what I had planned for the day, God went with me.

As I went about doing the things I had to do during the morning, God was there.

When I had lunch, God was with me.

During the afternoon, God was there the entire time.

At dinnertime, God was there.

In the evening as we watched some television among other things, God was there.

As I went to bed and then to sleep, God was there.

As I slept through the night, God was with me.

There was never a moment during my entire day, when I was not in the presence of God.

David wrote: “Where can I go from your Spirit?

    Where can I flee from your presence?

 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

    if I settle on the far side of the sea,

   even there your hand will guide me,” (Psalm 139: 7-10)

Who am I, that the God who created the galaxies, should care about me?

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)

Help me Lord, to be aware of your continual presence in my life. May I acknowledge You when I first awake. As I go through the day, help me not to be so absorbed in my own thoughts that I forget to talk and commune with you Lord. May my mind dwell on You throughout the day. May I not miss out on any of the joy and blessing of being in your presence. 

I am so blessed that the almighty, all knowing, all powerful God who created everything; loves me and cares about me. He doesn’t love me because I’m special, but I am special because He loves even me. Help me God to always be aware of Your presence. 

Thank You Jesus

The Miracles of Jesus

Jesus Film Project

There were plenty of miraculous events in the Old Testament, but there was something special about the miracles that Jesus performed. His miracles authenticated his power and divinity. People responded to his miracles differently than the witnesses of Old Testament miracles. Throughout the Gospel of Mark we see them respond in amazement (Mark 2:12, 5:42, 6:51).

Here is a list of the amazing miracles Jesus performed while he walked among us demonstrating his power over sickness, spiritual forces, nature, and even death itself.
