Lots of “stuff” going on all around us isn’t there? Sometimes it makes you wonder if God is still in control. The requests are real. The requests are important. The requests are for friends, loved ones and people we don’t even know. We need assurance don’t we? We need something to hold onto. We need peace and a place to stand when the waters ahead appear rough. Anyone that holds a Bible has it. It’s found throughout scripture, but I think my favorite one is in Genesis 3:14:
God said to Moses, “I am who I am . [a] “
These five words are more valuable than anything. They are bigger than every request. To those that believe, they are everything.
“Lord, I have a medical test coming up and I am scared. I know you know what’s best for me but”….I AM.
“Lord, I pray for my freind as he continues to battle his medical journey. I pray that”…I AM.
“Lord I have a friend that needs your direction and guidance as he”..I AM.
“Lord, I really messed up. No matter how hard I try”…I AM.
“Lord. I don’t know how we’re going to “….I AM.
“Lord, We need your”….I AM.
“Lord, I”….I AM.
