Help us God!

faithfulness
Thank You that Your mercies are new
Every morning, and every minute of the day!

I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
(Isaiah 46)
Thank you God for this promise.

Help us to trust You - and not our own understanding
Help us to recognise You - in all circumstances, good and bad
Help us to rest in You - and not our own survival techniques
Help us to reach out;
To be taken into Your embrace and loved by You,
To be held close and changed by our relationship with You.

Amen

I so needed this prayer. Thank you. I also need your prayers. G&T has run a fever over 101 since Tuesday evening. He spent Friday in the ER getting rehydrated and his potassium restored. It was so low, it didn't register. He worked 5 days at his new job and now has missed 3 days. He is not showing signs of improvement. If he's not up by Monday, we'll go back to the doctor for the 3rd time. Healing prayers, peace prayers please.

God thank you that you hear our prayers - and that Jesus you intercede to the Father for us and our needs. Amen
