Happy 4th and Marvelous Monday!

Happy 4th of July,

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 Pray for the eradication of racial profiling, hate crimes and for the protection of black lives and rights. Pray to protect our voting rights and get out and vote on the local and national levels.

Abolitionist Movement Leader Frederick Douglass believed that the celebration of July 4th for Black Americans was complicated. Complicated given our history and today because of what has been happening in our country such as racial profiling, attacks on voting rights and bold racial disrespect and violence.

May God Bless America and heal our land as we humble ourselves to pray and repent. Pray. Speak up. Take righteous action and work together in unity.

It’s Marvelous MIRACULOUS Manifestation Monday. On this Marvelous Monday, praise God for His unfathomable love for you!! Praise Him for daily loading you up with benefits. Know that God is your Provider. Expect Victory. Expect a burst of overflow. God specializes in things that seem impossible. “For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37:ESV. God is amazing and can “ fix it”, bring you through ,will never leave you ,will help see you through and He listens and answers prayer. Believe and obey His Word. Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Keep praying, pressing forth and pursuing the dreams God has placed in your heart. Have the courage to press forward and take faith action steps toward your dream, mission, and purpose.

Narrowing the Gaps – Connection! ( Pray Continually)(Devotions for Every Day Life)

Narrowing the Gaps

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18).

I am on a journey to narrow the gaps of unawareness of Christ’s Presence within me so that this verse can take root in my spirit and grow to fullness. If it is God’s will for me to rejoice always, pray without ceasing and give thanks in the midst of all of my circumstances, then I need a complete transformation of my heart, mind and will! I have sensed God urging me to make my life a prayer…to live in such a way that a spirit of prayerfulness rooted in worship and gratefulness invades every moment.

–Adapted from the blog, Prayer as Every Day Life by Kim Butts

Father, I long to be aware of Your perfect Presence each and every minute in my day…from the most exciting times to the most mundane moments. May every place I walk, every relationship I engage in and every thought in my head be holy for Your sake because You have ordained my steps, given me grace to love others, and taken my every thought captive. As I seek You in the midst of every day life, may I rejoice always and give thanks in every circumstance so that You are continually glorified.

Prayer Points
Praise God as the one worthy of the worship of our entire lives (Rom. 12:1-2). Give thanks for God’s mercy shown to you personally. Confess times of conforming to the pattern of this world. Commit yourself to the continual renewing of your mind. Ask God to be true to his promise that you will be able to test and approve what is his will.

Pray that each of God’s people will be reminded of the different gifts he or she possesses, according to the grace of God (12:6). Ask that they be further equipped through worship to use those gifts for God’s kingdom (12:7ff.).
