5 Let everyone see how reasonable and gentle you are. The Lord is near! 6 Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving. 7 Then God’s shalom, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yeshua.
Reasonable and gentle. What a lovely, refreshing way to conduct ourselves especially when it seems there is not much in this world that is reasonable or gentle these days. And what a testimony of faith for us to be reasonable and gentle when conflicts arise; when unwelcome reports barge into our lives; when the unthinkable demands recognition. And how can we? For sure not on our own, but The LORD is near! He is near to keep our hearts and minds SAFE. That is good news. We are safe. In JESUS we are safe!
I have two names to give you for prayer: Basco Family and Jamie.
The Father and younger son were badly burned last evening. Both will need skin grafts and the father’s lung are a real concern as well.
Jamie. So close I cannot say much. She is so loved by so many.
Words are not coming easy, ABBA. It’s a really good thing that You know already and, HOLY SPIRIT, I ask You to intercede on our behalf and for the Basco Family and for Jamie and for any other that our Readers bring with them in prayer as we all gather here. I pray for healing in JESUS name.
Day 56 of 2014, praying for revival of the Body of CHRIST.
Need someone to come alongside to pray with you?
