Always in Your Radar

What happens when a tragedy hits a home which cares for you? What if the people see you as the reason? Who is there for you if it occurs in a foreign land?

Lord, Your are our stronghold wherever I lodge so who else but You can we turn in trails.

Lord, others may see us as the reason for their problems, but we turn to You because we are always in Your radar.

Singing While in Pain

How can we sing in the midst of pain? Besides, if we don’t know whether we will live or not, why do we sing? What is our song in such a situation?

Lord, give us the determination of Your people who praised You at all times, even as they faced death.

Lord, when we are in danger, in sorrow, in pain, and /or in death many unanswered questions fill our minds, but let us turn to You with prayer and singing. Acts 16:22-28

Can We Protect His Promises

How soon do we forget His goodness? Do you fear that people can take away His promises for our lives? Can we protect His promises by sinning against Him and His people?

Lord, in order to protect Your promises, we take steps according to  human understanding and we sin against You but we forget to honor You who make our lot secure; forgive us.

Lord, in our urgency to protect Your promises in our lives, we often turn to human understanding and forget that You who have promised is faithful and we just need to honor You.

Walk towards the Beautiful Future

What God promises, He does, but why can’t we do the conditions He has set? Even when He has drawn the picture of our beautiful future, why can’t we keep the conditions? Why can’t we perceive the blessed future of our generations along with God?

Lord, we plan and develop schemes to conquer obstacles in the natural world, but often we fail to overcome hindrances in us in the  spiritual realm which actually channel Your blessings for our future.

Lord, forgive us as we use our resources  to overcome hindrances in our natural world towards a blessed future but we forget to love You, the One who has already masterminded a beautiful picture of our future.

Being With God verses Doing Things for God

Do great achievements for God guarantee our continual walk with God? Do we value tangible things we do for God more than our walk before Him with integrity of heart? What happens when we miss the latter and continue to create tangible things for God?

Lord, generally people appreciate what they can see and touch but may we value times when You meet us daily so that we could see Your beauty.

Lord, we cherish our time with You when we are recharged to walk before You with integrity of heart more than any great monuments we could build for Your name.

The God Who Fulfills Our Dream

How has God fulfilled people’s desire to honor God? Who are we that God would fulfill our dreams for His glory?  Why do people dream such things for God?

Lord, let our mind always wander around You and Your work in our generation so that our dreams will reflect Your glory.

Lord, who are we that You honor and bless our dreams for You which are always be small compared to Your majesty.

Blessings in Other’s Life

How will you respond to your loss in the light of a blessing in your friend’s life? Will your grief lead you to God? Or will it generate in you apathy? 1 Kgs 3:16-28

Lord, in the midst of grief and loss may our hearts never miss to see how You see others.

Lord, in loss and grief, let our response to the blessings in others’ lives be grounded in our trust in You, the Alpha and Omega.
