Oh April 2021, How We Welcome You

March 31, 2021

“Holy Father, we humble ourselves before you with the deepest gratitude for your gracious love. How unworthy we are for the gift of your son and the precious blood he shed for our sins. We joyfully praise you that Jesus rose from the dead and conquered our biggest foe, death. As your children, we rejoice that we can look forward to eternal life in your presence. May we spend all our days living to bring you glory and advance your kingdom. We gladly proclaim: He is risen! He is risen indeed! I pray in the Name of Jesus, Amen.”

March 2021, We Welcome You

March 1, 2021

“Oh father, I praise you for who you are, for your majesty and glory. As spring hovers on the horizon, my heart is heavy as I see the evil, fear, and unrest around me. I pray for your steadfast grace to empower me. May I live in this world as an alien who seeks your kingdom rather than cling to comfort. Remind me you put me here with spiritual gifts for such a time as this. Keep my vision clearly focused on you so I can shed your light and love. I want to be a source of your grace and beauty. Let me overflow with your mercy and kindness while I speak truth. I pray in the Name of Jesus, Amen.”

February 2021, We Welcome You

February 1, 2021

“Dear Father, in light of the uneasiness around us, we cast ourselves into your arms to be sustained by your steadfast love. If only we could fully express how grateful we are that you never change and that your lovingkindness never goes away. Thank you for demonstrating your boundless love by giving your Son to die for our sins. May we seek to love more perfectly following your example, and may we think less of ourselves while caring more for others. We plead for your blessings and grace so that we may trumpet your perfections to all the world.”

Welcoming The New Year: 2021

December 29, 2020

“Dear Father, creator of life and giver of all good things, we praise you for this new year. May we see each moment as precious and make wise use of our time by loving others and bringing glory to your name. Teach us, oh Lord, to have a heart of wisdom so we number our days. Let us live with eternal values in view. Keep our hearts from sin and deception and guide our steps. We fear the upheaval this year may bring, especially in our nation. So we pray for justice, healing, and peace for national issues. In your great mercy, protect our freedom and allow us to live in peace. Help us keep our eyes on you and surround us with your steadfast love throughout 2021.”

In this month, where we reflect on what took place in 2020, “the year” of uncertainty and politcal chaos, Jehovah Shalom, The One, is certain, today, and for the days and months ahead.

Overflow our hearts with Your love so we can spill onto our children and family. Enlarge our ability to care for others so we forget our petty concerns.

Welcome May 2020

May 1, 2020

But God.

The uncertainty continues, but God.

The Bible has many “but God” verses, and each tell us that our circumstances DO NOT get the last word. The enemy DOES NOT get the last word. Death and disease DO NOT get the last word. Because there is always, always, always a but God.

Let’s pray… Dear Holy Father, COVID-19 has impacted our world dramatically in the last few weeks, accenting our helplessness and our need for you. Our country must open for business, and yet we fear what might happen when it does. So, we cry to the one who hung the sun and moon in the heavens and flung the stars into space. We know you hold the world together with your power and your eye beholds every event, even the thoughts of our hearts. We pray for your grace and healing on our country. Please draw the wayward to yourself through this crisis. For those of us who know you, guide us like a shepherd and carry the fearful in your arms. Teach us to trust you more. We praise you for what you are going to do. In Jesus name, Amen.

In this month of uncertainty, The One, is certain. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things.

Welcome April 2020

April 1, 2020

In this new month of uncertainty, The One, is certain. As we do each month, let’s start with prayer, and choose to believe that He is in control of all things… Dear Abba Father, how desperately we need you in this time of upheaval. I pray for those suffering with COVID-19 and for the doctors and nurses who are overwhelmed with patients. Grant first responders grace and stamina as they care for our people and please restore the financial structure of our nation. Dear Father, use this crisis to realign our hearts with yours. I praise you I can be confident in my heavenly home even in chaos. I am grateful I serve a risen Savior, not a god made of stone or a figment of my imagination. The great I AM is my Father. Jesus is risen. He is risen, indeed. In Jesus name, Amen.

Our mission: Be intentional to “bloom” for Jesus. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father.
