Lord God,

I come before you again today asking for miracles of time and speed, protection and safety, peace and rest, mercy and justice for all envolved in this war. Lord, only you hold the solution to this conflict in your hand. Lord God, I ask that you move swiftly on behalf of peace in Iraq. Bring our soldiers home safely and soon. I ask these things in the Name of Jesus.

Amen.

This isn't a prayer or anything, but something I like. I once bought a bookmark with it on, and then at the funeral of a family friend it was printed on the 'thank you' (for attending) cards.

I hope it's okay to post it here.

Quote:
Footsteps.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

This isnt a pray or anything, but I think it says something.

Quote:
IF but some vengeful god would call to me

From up the sky, and laugh: Thou suffering thing,

Know that thy sorrow is my ecstasy,

That thy loves loss is my hates profiting!

Then would I bear, and clench myself, and die,

Steeled by the sense of ire unmerited;

Half-eased, too, that a Powerfuller than I

Had willed and meted me the tears I shed.

But not so. How arrives it joy lies slain,

And why unblooms the best hope ever sown?

Crass Casualty obstructs the sun and rain,

And dicing Time for gladness casts a moan.

These purblind Doomsters had as readily strown

Blisses about my pilgrimage as pain.
1866. by Thomas Hardy.

Could we form a new thread for this discussion? The topic here is prayer requests.

As for your question, I'll veg mail you.

Pray for me... I have problems... one of them is spending too much time here and not enough living my real life.

Pray that I find a job for the summer, one that doesn't mind me leaving in September to study abroad in Spain.

Thank you, Life, for starting this thread. I have been spending a lot of time in my prayer about what to do w/my life from here. I was recently laid off from my job, so after June I will be unemployed. Please pray that God will show me where He wants me & what he wants me to do. Thanks!
