Praying for These, click here for review.

Mark 6: 30The apostles gathered together with Jesus; and they reported to Him all that they had done and taught.

31And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.)

32They went away in the boat to a secluded place by themselves. (New American Standard Bible)

Come to a secluded place and rest — it’s an invitation from THE MASTER. Let us send in our RSVP in the affirmative.

ABBA, in JESUS Name I am here this morning asking for rest for the BODY OF CHRIST. Rest from our labors of doing life in our strength instead of Yours; rest from disobedience; and yes, for some, ABBA, I am asking a respite from the onslaught of the Evil One and for them to have a vacation from stress and troubles,  meet with them in a holy place and REST them, I pray.

And Legrand comes to mind so I am joining others in praying for a rest, a permanent rest from seizures for him and praying his paintings will accomplish what You have in mind for him and his family. Thank You that we can pray for this precious family; I pray Your very best for them, ABBA.

And Carolyn comes to mind, You know her request, You know the struggle, You know the heart of this daughter caring for her mother and I pray for strength and mercy for both.

And, ABBA, we’ve reviewed our Praying for These, so many hurts and illnesses and struggles, hard stuff to bear and yet I know You are Good and Your heart is for each of them and so I pray for rest and strength and healing for each one.

And we continue to pray for our IDOK Troops to be safe and protected in spirit, soul and body and to come home safe and sound.  And we pray for Israel for peace and for security and protection. And for America, I pray for our salvation.  I pray for the November elections to reprove and replace the ruthless and for people to come to office who will uphold and adhere to the Constitution that You gave us to bless this Country.   Thank You for allowing me to live here; help me help.  Amen and amen.

holy hugs, kt
