Prayer Points: Praying for Provision

heart-rate-1375323_960_720

There are times we are in situations that we don’t know how to get out of. Wonderings of the heart and mind saying: How did I get in this? How do I get out of this? What do I do in this? How do I continue living in this? Sometimes it seems the bigger the efforts made by us and the desire craved, the higher the odds pile up. How does daily bread manifest in our lives when we are running on low of the very life we have and we are in need of life support? Below are some points, questions and thoughts to consider on when we are in need of provision when we feel powerless.

 

Prayer Point: ‘Give us this day our daily bread.’

Our daily bread is the provision of our daily needs. What are the necessities that we need daily, in a world that showcases the tasty, sweet and overflowing with glamour? Where our wants are advertised confusing us with what we really need.

What are your daily needs?

What are the daily needs of your family?

What are the daily needs of our community?

What are the daily needs of the strangers, friends and acquaintances around us?

What are the daily needs of the nation?

What are the daily needs of the world?

 

Luke 18:1 encourages us “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.”

That simply lets us know even when the odds are piling up and seems to get bigger than our desire and tries to threaten our needs of ever getting met – we are to continue in prayer for the needs.

What do we do when adversity seems to advance further than the outcome of our continual efforts? Prayer is what we have to hold on to when everything else seems to go away.

Sometimes fainting may lie and say that is the only thing we have left to do.

Fainting into despair.

Fainting into disbelief.

Fainting into desperation.

There’s something that needs to be revived in us again.

Revival of prayer, faith, walking in God’s will, declaring and decreeing specifically the needs and being relentless in the part we are responsible for.

Jehovah Jireh: God our Provider,

Reveal who you are in our daily lives. We give you praise and thanks for all the past and present revelations and provisions that you have been to us. Lord revive in us the faith that lives on and rescue us from fainting when we are overwhelmed, exhausted and dehydrated within. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

 

No Ordinary Route

It just seems ordinary to be a 20 something young adult and have a stable job. At least to experience having one full-time job. Might not be the dream/calling job yet, but hey it’s a job.

Well my 20s are writing much differently, despite my efforts to change the direction. Presently experiencing this pops up different questions and raises natural concerns. What is God’s will and purpose in this? How long will this be for? Will this change soon?

All I can do is let the Author be in control and let His leading unfold. The several applications I filled out, over and over resume sent out and interviews I’ve went to bring back results this is no ordinary route. The circumstances say you might not understand it now, but one day you’ll wear a crown.

There are times I become frustrated. Then eventually I realize some of the greatest provisions come in disguise. It doesn’t have to make sense and it doesn’t have to look like I think it should. That’s how great wonders unfold,in messes and disadvantages. Guess what? It has nothing to with us, but all to do with the Master who never leaves His throne.

It’s ok if your story is not writing and reading ordinary me, because God is shaping you for destiny.

Here’s three points to think on in the midst of any challenge we face.

Our solid anchor is in Christ alone. 

God’s love speaks to us in the midst of the stormy waves. We just have to stop and listen.

The shed blood of our Savior(Jesus) covers us through it all.
