Tuesday, December 13: Intercessory Prayer

eureka!  praise God!  i have found the solution for people who suffer from irritability, hatred, jealousy, envy, anger, condescension, pride, ill will, unfairness, injustice, abuse, profanity, disrespect, and every other negative behavior man often has for another being.

i have found the solution for those secret, dreadful moments when we can’t stop wishing another person to be totally  and irrevocably removed from our lives, aka, dead… or, when we can’t stop backbiting the enemy…  when we can’t stop the color of our eyes from turning green with envy every time this hateful neighbor drives past in his brand new porsche while we have to drive a 10-year old, rickety, second-hand piece of junk… or, when we can’t stop verbally abusing our spouse/ partner/ not-so-significant-other-anymore  for being so slow in everything.

and here it is.

INTERCESSORY PRAYER.   “True intercession involves bringing the person, or the circumstance that seems to be crashing in on you, before God, until you are changed by His attitude toward that person or circumstance.   People describe intercession by saying, “It is putting yourself in someone else’s place.” That is not true! Intercession is putting yourself in God’s place; it is having His mind and His perspective.”  –  My Utmost for His Highest

                        ————————————

“thank You, Jesus for that!  stop me from seeking to change others to my standard and liking, from stunting their growth with criticism, from feeling superior over anyone for you love them all.  

Lord, however, be with me and grant me the divine grace to view myself from Your perspective, Your great love, and wonderful plans for me so i can have the faith in myself to step out from the quicksand of my past,  the determination to keep on amidst delay and want, the hope to look to my future with confidence and joy, and the faith in You to know that i am beautiful and amazingly loved by the One Person that matters.  and that because of it, i can do all things You send my way. 

Lord, bless my family and the world that we all may find the comfort and guidance in being closely in contact with You.  amen.
