Prayer to Prepare for the Day

be-prepared

Father, we put today under Your authority and care, trusting in Your infinite grace and mercy.

We thank You for today and all it may bring that is from You and we bless You for it.

We give You every thought and intention and ask that You sanctify them and bring them in accord with Your mind and heart.

We stand in You against every scheme of the enemy that has been sent against us either in the night or today, so that Your perfect will may be done in our lives.

We put all natural and spiritual family members under Your protection and bless them with Your love and truth.

We bless all who are in any leadership role with protection from the enemy and ask that their wills come into alignment with Your Holy will for the good of all people in their care.

We pray for the Kingdom to happen in our lives and around the world, as it is in heaven may it be so on earth for Your glory.

We pray in union with all Your people on earth and in Heaven the prayer You asked us to pray:

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
You give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.


This prayer (by Molly Sutherland) is one of the prayers our little angel Hrachik gave us at the birth certificate office in the story I told a couple weeks ago about our miracle. 🙂 Since then we’ve been praying it & the others every day. So powerful. Thank You, Abba!

Golden Day Gratitudes

Thank You, Abba, for this golden day.

Thank You that I was up at 5 once again, even though I went to bed at midnight.

Thank You that I will get to make up for lost sleep with a beautiful NAP this afternoon. 😉

Thank You for Winston Churchill setting the example of great leadership through intentional napping.

Thank You for the excellent hangout time with true friends yesterday at the park, for our kids getting to truly play in nature while we got to have real conversation about dreams and passions and plans and books.

Thank You for waking me up from my deep rest slumber and giving me Chinese New Year’s as a way to still kickstart my year with a bang even though I’m getting a late start.

Thank You for the increasing clarity about my purpose and the new vision for Panda Journal (or something like it), where I can promote friends’ writings and pull it all together in one happy place.

Thank You for my fantastic Tribe of Girlfriends and the upcoming collage card party, where we can share inspiration, dream together, laugh, cry, celebrate, plan, wonder, create and collaborate.

Thank You so much for Ian taking Freedom with him on the drive to drop Ben off at school, so I could get a little more focused work time in. Thank You for Ben’s adorable school and that he has the opportunity to be a light there in those lives. Thank You for his wonderful teacher and all of his friends. Thank You for the “cool tools” they teach at that school, and for non-violent communication and mindfulness.

Thank You for prayer and gratitude and the power of love and the feeling of overwhelming Joy + Life bubbling in my heart right now. I could write gratitudes all day long, there are just so many things to thank You for.

And thank You for the breakthrough last night (even if it did require a bit of saké) to sweetness with Gramma last night, being able to say “thank you” to her and for her being able to actually hear and receive it.

Thank You for Ian’s enthusiasm and excitement, and for this season of hope.

Thank You for the fantastic trio so far of intentions & themes for 2015, beginning with PRAYER, dance in the middle, and finishing with permission to rock my marriage with training in tantra. This can only end in ridiculously fun adventure. You are worthy of every ounce of praise. I worship You. I adore You. Thank You.

In the name of Emmanuel I pray, amen!
