    DAY 22

    Prayer for Unborn Children

     

    Almighty God, our Father, You who have given us life and intended us to have it forever, grant us your blessings. Enlighten our minds to an awareness and to a renewed conviction that all human life is sacred because it is created in Your image and likeness.  Help us to teach by word and the example of our lives that life occupies the first place, that human life is precious because it is Your gift, and Your love is infinite.

     

    Give us the strength to defend human life against every influence or action that threatens or weakens it, as well as the strength to make every life more human in all its aspects.
    Give us the grace…When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.
    When a child is described as a burden or is looked upon only as a means to satisfy an emotional need, to stand up
    and insist that every child is a unique and unrepeatable gift of God, a gift of God with a right to a loving and united family.

    When the institution of marriage is abandoned to human selfishness or reduced to a temporary conditional arrangement
    that can easily be terminated, to stand up and affirm the indissolubility of the marriage bond.

    When the value of the family is threatened because of social and economic pressure, to stand up and reaffirm
    that the family is necessary not only for the private good of every person, but also for the common good of every society,
    nation and state.

    When freedom is used to dominate the weak, to squander natural resources and energy, to deny basic necessities to people, to stand up and affirm the demands of justice and social love.

    Almighty Father, give us courage to proclaim the supreme dignity of all human life and to demand that society itself give its protection.
    We ask this in Your name, through the redemptive act of Your Son and in the Holy Spirit.

    Amen.

    Just a reminder of how awesome and strong all our TTC mommas are :heart:   :heart:  It doesn’t matter that the storm is raging or that the doctor has just issued a damning verdict; all that matters is our reaction and the unshakeable belief that regardless of all that, baby(ies) will come.

    Stay strong mamas and know that you have got Heaven’s backing. :heart:   :heart:

    DAY 23

    Prayer for Inner Peace

     

     

    Oh Lord, sometimes our insides feel like a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times we are caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying out of control. Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal our joy. We need Your peace—the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with us day and night and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm our anxious spirits, Lord; all the attacking “if-onlys” and “what-ifs” fill us with needless worry.

     

    We know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place in our lives. Most of the things we worry about or dread don’t even happen. So we are declaring our trust in You. We are releasing the reins of our lives again and asking You to take control. We need more of You, Lord, and less of us.

     

    We surrender and admit that we can’t control people, plans, or even all our circumstances, but we can yield those things to You, and focus on Your goodness. Thank You today for every good gift You’ve given, every blessing You’ve sent, all the forgiveness we did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial You’ve allowed into our lives. You bring good out of every circumstance if we’ll only let go and believe You. We know that when we pray and give thanks instead of worrying, You have promised that we can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That’s Your kind of peace, Lord. And it’s the kind we crave.

     

    Whenever we are stressed, anxious, or afraid, help us remember to run to You. You’re the only one that can calm our fears and end our fretful behaviors. Whether in trivial or heavy matters, we know You will not only give us peace; Lord, You will be our peace. And when we draw close to you—in prayer, in reading Your Word, in helping another, in taking our minds off ourselves — You will be there, up close and personal.

     

    We can’t handle these times alone, Lord. Will You speak peace and calm our storms, or hold our hands, the hands of  cc:  @blessedb  @ikechukwungozi  @tolabolanle  @milola @bosa @temotighoken @nadia @beebee @misi @mzm4 @oluwakemine @nekkyg @lizzy @iphii  @oyinforever @oyinpd @harrys-queen @lizzy @adeola @ladylorrie @naaadzane @missfafa @uwaye @ritty @nkay @elle @edojaprecious @jasmine queen @abbyigold @exaltedmom1  @akosua  @olugod   @chinwendu, while we walk through them together? Will You bring the reassuring wisdom of those who have come through similar times into our lives? Thank you, Lord. We are trusting You.

    In the name of the One who makes the wind and the waves stand still, Amen!

    Prayer for Peace in Our Hearts

     

    Lord, bring us peace in our hearts. At times, our lives seem clouded with doubt and anxiety. So many paths, which one to choose?

     

    And yet, the choices must be made and the path must be walked if we are not to stay still.
    Allow us to be brave, Lord. Allow us to be open to all the possibilties in our lives. Allow us to walk the road that radiates with most joy and happiness.
    When our minds are clouded, bring us into the sunshine and remove our worries. Allow us to see the path that is right for us and walk it with courage and integrity.
    Bring us peace in our hearts, knowing that Your love is with us always, and this is the only truth that needs to be understood.
    Hold us in the palm of Your hand, and carry us, @blessedb  @ikechukwungozi  @tolabolanle  @milola @bosa @temotighoken @nadia @beebee @misi @mzm4 @oluwakemine @nekkyg @lizzy @iphii  @oyinforever @oyinpd @harrys-queen @lizzy @adeola @ladylorrie @naaadzane @missfafa @uwaye @ritty @nkay @elle @edojaprecious @jasmine queen @abbyigold @exaltedmom1  @akosua  @olugod   @chinwendu, on our individual  journeys, to a place of peace and tranquility.

    In Jesus’ name we pray! Amen!

    As for me, hmmmm! What are your thoughts about CCTV cameras being in the office? My management just had them installed, and I feel so irritated by them…so distasteful. Feels like I’m acting my own Big Brother for their viewing pleasure. And with the camera behind my table, the Operator might as well be working on my laptop   :wacko: . So, so annoying though. Or what do you think?
