My Shared Prayers

Love ME

“Lord, let me love the ME you created… more than the ME that I want to be.”

Every Moment Of Every Day.

-Em O. Ed

Pressure

“Lord, don’t let the pressures of my day, press You out.”

Every Moment Of Every Day.

-Em O. Ed

Opportunities

“God, you give me so many opportunities to pray to You. Why don’t I see them? Thank You for letting me see them afterwards. Help me to see them before and not after. That would be a double blessing…”

Every Moment Of Every Day.

-Em O. Ed

Thank You

“The Y in You should be capitalized because we should always be thanking YOU, God. Sometimes I ask You, God, ‘Why is it taking You so long to answer this prayer?’ Or ‘Why do I have to suffer so much?’ But, God, what you have made me realize, is that You could say the same to us, ‘Why has it taken you so long to trust me?’ Or ‘Why are you choosing to suffer in this alone for so long? Come to Me! I’ve been waiting…”

Every Moment OEvery Day.

-Em O. Ed

The Good in this Day

“Lord, help see the good in this day when I don’t always see it. When the clouds are gray. Thank you, Lord, for letting me see the beauty and the extraordinary in the ordinary and simple things in life always. Help me to never lose that…”

Every Moment OEvery Day.

-Em O. Ed

Go Do That

This was my plea to God: “I don’t know what to do!”
And He replied, “But you know what not to do. Go do that.”

Every Moment OEvery Day.

-Em O. Ed

“Search me, O God, and know my heart. Test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything that offends You. And lead me along the path to everlasting life.”  (Psalm 139:23-24).

When my Prayers get in the Way

When my prayers get in the way

Of what I really need to see-

When my prayers get in the way

Of what Your will is meant to be-

When my prayers get in the way

Of what I really should believe-

Lord, tell me.

When my prayers get in the way

Are they prayers full of faith,

Or

Only wishes, hopes, and dreams?

Every Moment OEvery Day.

-Em O. Ed
