A Prayer for Healing of Children

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in devotions

“Father God, we pray for every child that’s hurting. We pray that you heal every hurt and pain. We pray you touch their precious bodies with your healing power. As we lay our hands on them or call out their names in prayer, we pray you will drive out all sickness and disease. We pray their body will respond to the healing power of your Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus. We pray their body and mind will function in the way you designed it to function. We pray you minister healing to every child with a broken heart. We pray that you heal all anger and feelings of rejection and abandonment. Let them know the abuse is not their fault. The divorce is not their fault. The neglect is not their fault. Heal their hearts and help them LORD to know that you are with them and you care deeply for them. Do a mighty work in and through the children of our world and be glorified in a great way! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

(Isaiah 53:5; Psalms 147:3)

Choose to have a right attitude!

“He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform” Romans 4:20-21, NKJV.

Years ago, I worked for an employer that no one liked. The work atmosphere was always stressful and everyday I came home feeling discouraged and stressed out. My attitude wasn’t good at all. I began to pray and ask God if I could leave and move on to something else, but He told me, “No, change your attitude.” So that’s what I did. I would say, “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job and everyone I work with!” I would say this on my way to work, under my breath while at work, and on my way home. I even put sticky notes on my computer. Would you believe, my God began to bless me with favor on that job. He even blessed me to minister to my boss and we became great friends! When I did leave that job it wasn’t out of frustration; it was because God had promoted me to another assignment.

The Israelites were delayed forty years from entering into the Promised Land because of their attitude. Don’t let a bad attitude extend your stay in a place you know you’re not destined to be.

God wants to bless you with promotion, favor and blessings. If it’s a job you hate, you got to to start saying, “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job and everyone I work with!!!” Say it by faith!

Choose to have a right attitude. My husband always say, “If you can’t get out of something, get into it!” If God’s not allowing you to leave an uncomfortable situation, ask Him to help you get into it. He has you there for a reason and a purpose. There’s someone He wants you to reach. Change your attitude by focusing on why you are there. Maybe it’s not for you, but for them.

Prayer: My God! Forgive me for my attitude. Help me to have and maintain an attitude of faith, of thankfulness, and trust in you! I trust your perfect timing and your perfect way. Use me where I am. Be glorified in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
