Thanks, Praise and Trust

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2017 here on GUWG, where from now until December 25 we’re preparing our hearts for the arrival of the Savior of the World.

Here’s a lovely little prayer to pray throughout the season:

The Bible. Uninterrupted.

This week on GUWG we’re giving you God’s words in pure undiluted concentrated form.

Here’s a pair of praise prayers straight from the Psalms:

PSALM-O-RAMA 2017 CONCLUDES

MountainThanks to all who participated in PSALM-O-RAMA!

Here are a few more fave Psalms y’all shared.

Jeanne shared Psalm 121, saying it’s a “good one to memorize and recite to myself as often as needed (pretty often).” I couldn’t agree more. Here it is:

Pray for the Persecuted

We’re hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Millions of Christians worldwide are praying for our brothers and sisters who are in dangerous and difficult circumstances due to their faith.

We’re all in this together. As Paul said, when one part of the body suffers, “all the parts suffer.” (1 Corinthians 12:26)

Heavenly Declarations

Here are a pair of powerful Psalms on which to meditate — one for the morning and one for the evening.

Get alone with God and pray through ’em with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.

Rock Prayer

GUWG-RockIt’s ROCK’S GREATEST HITS WEEK here on GUWG, where we’ve been examining words of wisdom from the man Jesus nicknamed “Rock” (aka Peter).

We’ll close where we started, by praying through these wonderful words from Rock’s first letter:

Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father and pray.

Today’s prayer suggestion is one of the “penitential psalms” from David, whom God called “a man after my own heart.”

Pray through it with all your heart.
