Need great peace?

Are you feeling stressed? Pressured? Overwhelmed? Or joyless? 

Take encouragement from here... 

Psalm 119:143 As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands. 

Psalm 119:147-149 I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise. In your faithful love, O Lord, hear my cry; let me be revived by following your regulations. 

I love these words of life and hope. 

What should we do in times of stress, pressure, and with feelings that overwhelm us? 

1. Find joy in Gods commands 

2. Rise early before the sun is up; cry out for help and put your hope in His words 

3. Think about His promises 

4. Follow His regulations (ways) 
He will revive you!!! 

Psalm 119:165 Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble.

My prayer for 2015

Lord God, maker of the heavens and the earth, I thank you for the opportunity and freedom to fast pray. 

I thank you for your teaching on fasting and prayer. I love to spend time with you. I love that I can dedicate a part of my everyday to you. That a small sacrifice can make a difference. That you see my heart. That through my hunger for more of you and my dedication to see change, breakthrough will come. I trust in you. I believe in you. 

I thank you for this new year. I give it back to you Lord. It is not mine but yours. Please have your way in and through me in 2015. Thank you for giving me a hope and a future. 

I pray that this year you will be praised through my life. Let me be a testament to your goodness. I want to shine for you. 

I also pray that this year would be the year of advancement and moving forward. Whatever form that may be. Your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Lord God I ask for increase in our finances. I ask for increase in Godly knowledge and wisdom. Lord for an increase in the renewing of my mind. For an increase in the ways and out working of the Holy Spirit. 

Please bless our family O Lord. 
Bless our church. 
Bless our nation of Australia. 

In Jesus mighty and powerful name I pray. Amen!
