Sally's November Prayer

Sally, one of my friends from church, sends me the nicest things.
I told her when I see her name in my mailbox, I know there is a nice surprise waiting for me.
This is what I recieved yesterday and had to share it more than just on email. I had to make some slight changes to make it from an email item to something you can come back to repeatedly--just look for Sally's November Prayer.
I hope it brings you Blessings!

Relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow God to be the only person on your mind while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer. Friends who pray together, stay together.
Dear Lord,
I thank you for this day. I thank you You for being able to see and hear this morning. I am blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God  You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start each day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness from You.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example--to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those who are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those who will not share You with others. I pray for those who don't believe. But I thank you that I believe.
I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love, and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met. 
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses
them willingly . . .
This is my prayer.
In Jesus' Name,


  1. Thank you for your your sweet words and thoughtfulness, Mary! I was so excited to receive a message from you! :)

    What a beautiful prayer! It truly blessed me greatly to read it, and I am so thankful that you shared it!

    I hope all is going well with you, and that God blesses you this coming year with an abundance of His love and grace!


    1. Sally is one of the ladies at my church and, like you, she sends me great things. I had to post this one! Glad you enjoyed it.
