Lord, Help Us to Do What’s Right–Genesis 4:7


Today’s Scripture Reading:  Gen. 4:1-5:32, 1 Chronicles 1:1-4, Gen. 6:1-22

 Heavenly Father, thank you for recording the words You spoke to Cain:

“Why are you so angry?” the Lord asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected? You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” —Genesis 4:6-7

 Lord, these words are just as true today as they were with your second generation humans.  Life is easier when we do what’s right.  Holy Spirit help us to “see” with spiritual eyes the sinful world that is crouching at our door, eager to control us.

Help us to go on the defensive and subdue sin and be its master instead of living weak, depressed lives that have no eternal impact on our families, communities or world.

Jesus, help us to realize we are our brother’s keeper.  Lord, we can’t make a difference in the whole world, but we can make a difference for one or two.  Holy Spirit, speak loudly; speak over the noise of this world and let us know who we are to reach for Your Kingdom.  Keep us awake at night for our lost and hurting world.

Lord, forgive of our sins and shortcomings!  Make us like You Jesus!

In Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen!

Holy Spirit, Hover Over our Lives This Year–Genesis 1:2



Today’s Scripture Reading:  Genesis 1:1-3:34

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. —Genesis 1:1-2

Holy Spirit of God, on the first day of the year 2014, I ask you to hover over my life the same way you hovered over the surface of the waters when you were forming the world.

Please watch over and protect me from physical, emotional and spiritual harm.  God, thank you in advance for tirelessly being here for me in this new year.

Jesus, help me to remember that you are the beginning and the end and nothing surprises you.

Heavenly Father you created me, my husband, my children, grandchildren, and everyone who’s dear to me–Help me to remember that I can trust You with my most treasure gifts, after all, You created us all!

Father, in the very beginning you knew about January 1, 2014; let this day go according to Your plan.  Help me to cast all my cares on You Lord for You care for me (1 Peter 5:7).

In Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen!

What is your prayer for today?
