Dear God

Dear God,

I thank You for this day. I Thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving and an understanding God.

You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for I have sinned. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Keep me safe from all danger and harm. Let me start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day and give my best in all that is put before me. Clear my mind that I can hear from You.

Broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example-to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Thy Will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak and unsaved.

Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.

I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.

I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.

I pray for those who refuse to share a Word from You.

I pray for those who don't know You intimately.

I pray for those that will only read this and not speak this aloud in their own lives.

I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others.

I pray for those that don't believe. But I thank you that I believe.

I believe that God changes people and God changes things.

I pray for my best friend as well as partner for life Virgie and my cute little angel Zia Vim. Guide them, shade your light, and express unto them Thy love and kindness. Tell them that you’re only by their sides.

I pray for my parents. Keep them safe from harm and danger. Guide them in the right path and shade Thy Light unto them.

I pray for all my sisters, brother, and my relatives. For each and every family member in their households. Extend Thy Eyes and Hands upon them. Touch their hearts and mind so they will listen and trust on You.

I pray for Ninong Dave & Ninang Yvone Higgins, Dr. Maria Tumangday, Professor Erwin and Dra. Marissa Pajares, Kuya Lito, Ate Michelle and Mama Leling. Professors Rex Diamante, Richard Philip Maypa, Jesse Songcayawon, Joseph Ledesma, Edmond Aquioben, Ceasar Idaosos, and Atty. Domingo San Juaquin for they were very good people to me. They helped me to stretch my mind To Think and Grow Rich.

I pray for these great authors: John Maxwell, James Allen, Vincent Peale, Napoleon Hill, Orisson Sweet Morden, Og Mandino, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Mark Twain and Angeles Bella Abangan. Wherever they are right now, if some of them are still breathing and kicking, lengthen their lives Oh, Lord. Give them a good health and protect them for any harm and danger. Extend to them my debt gratitude of thanks. For their writings powerfully changed my life and helped me to conquer the impossible things.

I pray for my true friends: Toni Villamayor, John Fernandez, Benjamin Padil, and Marry Ann Bosogon. For these young people were very good friends to me. For we’ve been shared our laughter and tears, and comforted each other.

I pray for mySchool administrators and co-workers, give them a good health, knowledge as well as wisdom.

I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes, that they are out of debt & all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows their is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than You. Every Battle is in Your hands for You to fight.

I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.

This is all I pray and gratefully ask, In Christ name, Amen.
