|Monday, May. 19, 2003 || For Aunt Dink|
I wanted to send a Scripture prayer to my aunt who is succombing to her battle with MS. I used various Scriptures compiled in a book by Beth Moore called Praying God's Word. God's Word is so powerful and ministers to us in so many ways!
Merciful and faithful Lord, because of Your great love we are not consumed, for Your compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. We can say, "The Lord is our portion; therefore we will wait for Him." Lord, You are good to those whose hope is in You, to the one who seeks You. (Lam. 3:22-25) You, Abba Father are the One who will sustain us. You made us and You will carry us; You will sustain us and You will rescue us...We will remember the former things, those of long ago; You are God, and there is no other; You are God, and there is none like You. (Isa. 46:4,9) You know the plans You have for us, Lord...plans to give us hope. (Jer. 29:11) Let us not waver through unbelief regarding Your promises. We desire to be strengthened in our faith and give glory to You, God, being fully persuaded that You have power to do what You promise. You credit this kind of faith to Your children as righteousness! (Rom. 4:20-22) Abba Father, there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. (Ecc. 3:1) You are the Creator and Sustainer of time. Nothing is untimely to You. You are not caught off guard. You knew everything that would befall us. Carry us when we cannot walk, Abba Father. We need You. Help us to trust You with all our heart. May Your unfailing love be a comfort, according to Your promise to Your servant. Let Your compassion come to us. (Ps. 119:76-77) Lord God, help us to not only accept how much You love us, but help us to abide in Your love! (John 15:9) We call to You, God, and You save us. Even if we cry out in distress evening, morning, and noon, You will never fail to hear our voices. (Ps. 55:16-17) Thank You, Abba Father, for Your immeasurable love for us!
