Times Like These

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34: 18 NIV

Dear Heavenly Father,

Protect our children as they come and go throughout their days, unaware of any hurt, harm, or danger that may encircle them. Change the minds of those who may come against us or our children. Let them see Your love, let them know Your peace. Lord, we give Your angels charge over our children. Encircle them with Your arms, Lord. Remind them Lord that You are near and that no harm shall come near them.

As parents, let us stand firm on Your Word that You are faithful Lord and will protect us. Go before us Lord and make our winding paths straight. Let us seek refuge in You.

In the name of Jesus we pray,

You need to know me? I am an old youth. Late to grow. Yet grateful of the time given by the Lord. Under His watchful eye, I am redirected, chastened, and chided. My heart is fragile, broken, and a work in progress. The Lord delicately puts me together as if mending glass. My pieces are not visibly shown. Hurt words leave my mouth, the sharp edges of my broken glass; though my heart speaks a different beat. A common factor in our time. My ways have sent me astray from the Lord’s path. I am no different than you. The Lord uses His timetable, methods, and avenues to lead us back to Him…if we will listen. Heavenly Father, Open my ears to hear Your gentle voice. Soften my heart so that I will heed Your words. Guide my feet so that I may walk in line with Your will. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen! PhotoCredit: https://goo.gl/images/ShgvmP
