Just some thoughts for today

“Good Afternoon: I walked about this morning thinking about the concept of God-sized prayers. I thought well, what does that actually look like? Here we are in a pandemic, yes we are in a pandemic. The construct of “a pandemic” is foreign for most of us because we were not here when the Spanish Flu rocked the world and killed 50 million people – worldwide. About 650,000 died in the USA.
The Holy Spirit nudged me about praying that all of our current infected people be healed from this disease. I laughed to myself for a bit and then realized that it is seriously a God-sized prayer. How can someone like me affect the lives of so many people? But isn’t that the point of God-sized prayers? God=sized prayers are prayed for situations and scenarios that are humanly impossible.
This disease is creepy. We really know VERY little about it. Scientists are still trying to figure out what the signs of contagion are for this virus. We know that You already know, Father. So, yes, I am pleading the blood of Jesus over this virus in all people, all over this world. Not according to my will but according to your will, Father. I am also praying that YOU will put a stop-gap on the conspiracy theories and theorists. Father, this type of postulating is just creating fear in the hearts of your people. Your word declares that your people operate differently. “For [YOU] God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” I declare that into the lives of every single person who is reading this, Father. Deuteronomy 31:8 declares that ” he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” I receive it and believe it, Father.
Father, 1 John 4:20 tells us that
“If [I] man say, I love God, and hateth [my] brother, [I am] a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” Remind me of this every single second of every single day.
I am praying that the seeds of hatred and division that have been planted all over the world, and well-watered, will die in the ground like the seeds that were planted in stony ground.
Lord, I am praying for peace of spirit, mind, soul, spirit, and body for everyone.
I am praying for the souls of men, women, and children who have walked away from the sheep pen. I pray that you will give them a willingness to look to the Good Shepherd and return back to the fold. Guide your children in our decision making, Father, that we may walk in newness of mind, faithfully upholding the standard of Love for self, and love for our neighbors and that by our fruit may inspire people to ask – “Why are you so different? Why are you so loving? Why are you so separate from this world?” Care and compassion are lacking Father. Let your church arise and live those two concepts out in a mighty and powerful way, Father. Protect us from ourselves. Souls for the Kingdom. Kingdom Mission – keep us on that mission, Father! Let us support that more than we support anything else in Jesus’ name – Selah!
If you do not know my Jesus-not the fictional character that some stories and books are written about, but the one who died so you do not have to be separated from Him for all of eternity, how about sending me a message and giving me an opportunity to tell why I love Him so, and to also explain his immense love for you – right now. Even though you do not know Him.
