O Lord, My Lord

O Lord, our Lord, how Majestic is Your Name, in all the earth.  

My own words are few this morning, Lord as I search for words to offer back to You for the many who are once again on my heart.  I am so thankful to have Your Word...words of truth...words of life...words of hope...words of peace...when I have no words of my own.

Be near to the many brokenhearted, saving all those who are crushed in spirit.  May those who are so downcast in spirit right now, put their hope in You...the Living God. May they pant for You, as a deer does for water. Direct them with Your love by day and sing over them with Your song at night.  

I pray they seek You first for all their needs, knowing that You are El Shaddai--their all sufficient one--and You will supply all their needs...adding all things unto them.  I pray they will wait upon and put their hope in You and as they do that You will renew their strength...proving that You indeed are strong when they are weak...that Your strength is made perfect in weakness.  I pray they will run into You...their mighty strong tower.  

I pray they will put on their armor daily, not forgetting any part...the shield of faith...breastplate of righteousness...feet shod with the gospel of peace...helmet of salvation...feasting on Your Word which is their sword....belt of truth to counteract those lies of the enemy...and above all to cover themselves in prayer.  And I do pray that they will know the truth. So many are being deceived by lies. I pray they will know Your Word--the Truth--for in knowing the truth, they will be set free.  

I pray they will learn to persevere through trials...knowing that You have allowed them to perfect that they may be made complete, lacking in nothing.

Father, thank You for sending Your Word to heals us and for healing wounded hearts...every so tenderly...ever so beautifully.  What a beautiful event when two young women recognized unconditional love--probably for the first time in their lives--this past weekend.  Thank You for allowing me to witness that, firsthand. 

Thank you for being who You are.  O Lord, My Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

I loved this prayer...and I've been running to that Strong Tower all week...

Praise the Lord for the two new sisters in Christ!

Hi Debbie,

Like Karen, I've found the Lord to be my refuge and my strength. Thank you for interceding on behalf of so many needs and your testimony.

Blessings and peace.

Hi Debbie,

First off amen. I agree with you in prayer. And second of all, you thought your words were few. But God came near and spoke His Word of truth, hope, peace and love through you as you prayed. That makes my heart soar...Thank you. And praise God for the armor we have. For God as our strong tower--- and as our rock, fortress and deliverer. (1 Sam 2:22)

What a gift to witness God pour His love on two hearts. That makes me jump for joy. Thank you..

I hope we can connect again sometime soon in person and catch up and pray.

Hugs and love,

This is a beautiful prayer. I love the imagery of the armor, it is very powerful and I will recall this prayer in the future. Thank you,
