Written prayers can inspire us to pray in new ways. I'm Frustrated Dear God: I’m fat and I’m frustrated—but I guess not quite enough to do anything about it. I cringe every time I hear on the news that Americans are getting fatter... I Love Fall Dear God: What a glorious day. The leaves just turning their beautiful colors — gold, red, yellow, burgundy. A walk in the woods with my grandsons turned into a wonderful teaching time and exploration about you and your creation. Time For School Dear God: School has started. Today I pray Your very special blessing on all educational institutions. Sometimes I Doubt Dear God: I was hit with a surging wave of doubt today. About You. Please forgive me, but I’m sometimes bombarded by the fact that everything about You, every claim You make, is invisible and has to be taken on faith. My Child Is Hurting Dear God: It's hard being a parent when I see my child experiencing something painful that I can't do anything about. My son is depressed and lonely. Help him take his medication. Resurrection Hope Dear God: Thank you for the Easter season that reaffirms our faith, trust and hope in the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us the hope to which we cling—"Because I live—you too shall live." Exposing Your Grace Dear God: It's a new day and I thank You for bringing me to it; for the benefits of rest and renewal. I just finished reading about when Jesus healed several people of their physical problems. Sand Dollars and Snow Dear God: Thank you for making our world so diverse. I used to live in the Midwest where it's cold much of the Winter, but once, when I lived there, I went to Florida and collected shells on a sunny beach. Discouragement Dear God: Be there for every person who is discouraged. For those who feel like giving up and calling it quits. Compliments Dear God: It’s amazing how one word of praise can change a day! Heading out to the car after our small-group meeting last Thursday... My Adversary Dear God: I’m exhausted and feel like I’ve been fighting a war with one hand tied behind my back. I have misjudged my opponent. Holy Spirit Dear God: It’s such an incredible gift of your Holy Spirit. Thank you. It’s impossible to picture your Spirit ministering throughout our lost and hurting world, but the Bible assures us of his omnipresent power. Merry Christmas God Dear God: The good news of salvation is the best news our world has ever heard! None of us deserves the grace you offer. Holiday Stress Dear God: I'm stressed out! Christmas is just around the corner and there's way too much going on! The traffic is crazy and I keep bumping into people who are downright rude! God's Amazing Gift Dear God: Two thousand years ago, in the fullness of time, an epoch-making event took place: Your Son was sent to our earth to become a human being—Jesus Christ. The Good Ole Days Dear God: When I was raising my kids, it was very different. They didn't sit and watch television all day. They didn't have iPods filled with trashy music and computers in their rooms. My children were respectful and dressed appropriately. Constant Pain Dear God: Help. Jesus, I can hardly pray beyond that one word. I hurt all over. The pain is with me in the morning, nags me through the day, and climbs into bed with me at night. I Am Someone Dear God: I'm a nobody! I feel like I do not amount to very much. It appears as though whatever I do is insignificant. Nothing of any count! I'm Sorry Dear God: I have finally come to realize that cannot make myself sorry for the negative things I say and do. Your word calls for repentance, but I don't have it within myself to bring it to pass. Better Sermons, Please Dear God: I have to open up my heart to you, Lord. Here goes: please bless Pastor with an extra portion of your Spirit regarding sermons. Finals Dear God: I’ve got that massive comprehensive final in 45 minutes, God, and I can’t help the feeling of dread that creeps over me. A Radical Idea Dear God: The law of heaven calls for a radical way of living that turns human logic on its head. It's customary for us to love and value those who treat us well. Well Connected Dear God: I’m pretty connected. After all, I work at my computer all day and sometimes into the night and have full access to e-mail. Deal or No Deal If my life were on television and people could see how I grasp at things: a nicer car, more furniture, more clothes, etc. Answers For Me © AnswersForMe.org.
