Lord Jesus I come to You because when I look at the hard times that we are facing – my heart seems to fail as I don’t know which way to turn – except to You. Thank You that You have always been there for me and thank You that you have always come through with Your help in time of need - always at the right time and always in the right way.
Keep me from fear of what tomorrow may bring, knowing that I do not need to be afraid or fearful, because You have promised supply all my needs according to Your riches in mercy.
Thank YOU Lord, for Your Word which has so many beautiful truths and wonderful promises …that You are always there to help when times are hard – and thank You for this scripture from the Bible, which someone gave me today: do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Thank You for this lovely truth and for the many promises that You have given to all Your children. May my heart rest in You Lord and keep me from fear in these difficult times, in Jesus name I pray,
“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”

Loving Father, keep me from covetousness, carnal behaviour and envying the wicked, who seem to have everything in this world, while so many of Your children, so often seem to be so deprived. Help me to live my life in spirit and truth, so that by dying to self, I live for Christ, and thus live my life of the saving of the soul… my soul-life which will produce a great reward, in heaven. AMEN.
“And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

In whose name I pray.
“But God said unto him, Thou
fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?”

Father I confess that I worry about many things rather than trusting Your Word implicitly. Help me to learn to cast all my cares upon You. As each worry and concern forms in my mind I pray that with Your help, I will look to You and hand over my anxious thoughts, knowing that You have promised to carry me through all of life's difficulties and provide for the needs of me and my family. Thank You for your goodness and grace and I pray in the name of Jesus, AMEN.

Source: Verse of the
day for Luke 12:22
Father we are told to consider the wonderful way that You provide for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, knowing that we, who are Your children, are so much more precious to You than they are. Why do I become anxious, when I know that all I have to do is to trust You at Your Word….? Why do I spend so much of my time worrying about so many things in life…? I know that You have promised to be our Healer, our Provider, our Shepherd and our Peace - and You have been these and so much more to me, and yet Lord I am prone to anxiety and care.
Help me Lord to take captive each anxious thoughts that crosses my mind as it arises in my heart, and give it over to You - as You have instructed. Help me to, ‘take every anxious thought captive..” the moment it passes like a shadow across my heart - and hand it over to Jesus, instead of allowing it to revolve around my mind, causing anxiety in my soul to increase.
Help me to consider the birds of the air and the flowers of the field – and the heavens and the earth and all that You have made by the strength of Your mighty power – knowing that Your same mighty power is available to all Who trust in Christ as Saviour… Help me to consider Jesus and all He did for me at Calvary - and help me to take every anxious thoughs captive – and rest in Him
“And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?”

Father God I thank You for the timely reminders throughout Your word that I am to cast all my concerns on You – all my physical, emotional, financial, relational, daily worries and fears – knowing that all things are under Your sovereign control. Thank You for providing all I have needed, and may I develop right-thinking in the everyday needs and necessities of life, knowing that every worry starts with a simple doubt against Your goodness – but that doubt is displaced when we trust in the Lord with all our heart and don’t lean on our own understanding. Help me to trust you in all things – this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
“Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”

Father You have shown me that every thought that comes into my mind can be turned to evil or good; worry and defeat; faith and victory. Thank You that I have access to the very mind of Christ through the indwelling Holy Spirit. Help me to take every thought captive by turning my heart to YOU Lord Jesus, for in seeking You I will be seeking Your kingdom and Your righteousness which is the bedrock of faith in God - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

day for Luke 12:32
Loving Lord, You have placed us all in families and have, by Your own authority, established Your own statutes and laws. Thank You for placing us all in families and for my own family, in particular.
Thank You for the clarity with which You have taught us in Your word how that family that is seeking to do Your will, behaves… and the rolls that each of us holds within our own special family unit.
Thank You Lord, that You are our Father and have authorised the man of the home to take the place of authority, as the head of the family - just as You yourself are the Head of the family of God. May the men who are in this responsible role behave in a manner that is pleasing to You, by treating their wives with love and respect and their children with loving discipline and wise counsel. May they each become men after Your own heart as they assume their God-given role in their own homes.
May wives be gentle and gracious and willing to act in the crucial role of helper that You, Yourself have graciously placed them – may wives reflect the great love that Christ had for the Father and the sweet gentleness of the Holy Spirit – just as Jesus demonstrated these qualities in His own life… by submitting graciously to the Father’s will and desiring to do only those things that are pleasing to Him Give wives wisdom in the way that they behave towards their men-folk and may they grow in grace more and more as they walk in the steps of the lovely Lord Jesus Christ – Who was so full grace and truth.
Thank You for the heritage and gift of children, who we understand are a gift from God – a gift that has been lent from the Lord and a gift that You have graciously placed in so many families. And we pray that You would give all parents the grace and wisdom to teach and discipline their children in loving-kindness– and may the children themselves respect their parents and recognise the privilege they have in being part of a godly family unit. Loving Lord thank You for my family – and into YOUR hands I commit my family, from this day forward, even for evermore.
“But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes
. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”

Lord, what a mess we have both caused in our relationship and though we are both to blame in one way or another.. between us we have walked away from a special relationship that we both felt was brought about by Your grace.
Please Lord, visit my boyfriend and me – we are both miserable and we both are smarting from some of the unkind things that we said to each other. We have both acted childishly and unwisely and we need to face this difficulty soon - if we are ever going to be reconciled.
Lord we both need to be forgiven and I certainly repent of my part in our break-up – I ask Your forgiveness and pray that You will teach me how to live in a manner that is pleasing to You and not to gratify my own desires.
Lord whatever happens, in Your strength I pray that I will not play emotional ‘blackmail’ with another person. Keep me for childish stupidity and I pray that in Your grace You would bring us both to a point where we can be reconciled back to each other and have learned by our mistakes – Make me more like Jesus I pray.
Thank You Lord Jesus,
“When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art
in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.”
