Makes Me Holler!

Oh Lord, my heart is aching!

I can hardly catch my breath!

I’m speechless and shivering!

Makes me holler!

Can you hear me?

Makes me holler!

Cry and throw up both my hands!

But, hands are for praying.

Knees are for surrendering.

Heads are for bowing down.

Hearts are for humble adoration.

Ears are for listening to whispers in between our tears.

It’s so hard to be silent today.

I want to holler all day long!

But, I must park. I must pray to the Almighty.

I need you to join me.

Let’s park and pray at 1:11 pm everyday.

Pray ahead of the storms.

Pray before trouble and pray before evil is born.

Pray in the midst of heartaches and pray after it’s gone.

Let’s Pray, My God, have mercy on me, and on them.

Have mercy! Oh God, please have mercy on us.

Lord have mercy on all of us.

My Lord, please save the children!

Protect them from harm and from death!

Create in us a clean heart. A renewed spirit.

Deliver us from evil. Heal our sorrow.

Comfort the pain of trauma

My Lord, please save the children!

Protect them from harm and from death!

Watch over them all day and all night.

Keep them in Your loving sight. Amen.

Calling For A Cloud and A Fire

How much O Lord? How much more must we endure? The burden of disappointment and despair weighs heavy on our minds and bodies. We don’t know how much more we can bear. We ask that you continue to be with us and shield us from the enemy. As you gave instructions to the Israelites and guided them with a cloud by day and a fire by night, lead us now so that we may grow and mature in the Christian faith.
“those that wait on the lord shall renew their strength…” (Isaiah 40:31)

Let’s Pray at 1:11 pm in God’s Garden

Even the Bee Clings to its source of life

Almighty God, You call us to “Be strong and courageous! Do not fear or tremble before them, for the Lord your God is the one who is going with you. God will not fail you or abandon you!” ⏤ Deuteronomy 31:6

Merciful God, it’s 1:11 pm! A time for our daily prayer. We enter God’s presence with praise and thanksgiving. You call us to bring our tired, and achy bodies to the throne of Grace and Mercy. We pull over, park, turn off the car engine, and sit behind the wheel. As we get accustomed to silence we listen to our breath. We place a hand over our heart and imagine pledging allegiance to the God of Grace and Mercy.

We pledge allegiance to You God Almighty who rescues us from our troubles.

Thank You! We love You. O God, we receive You. Please receive us.

Thank You for your love, compassion, and guidance.

Thank You for the ways You show up in our lives.

Thank You for watching over us, like Your sheep.

Help us enter Your presence and to draw strength from You.

Sanctify our time together as a rich opportunity to share our love.

We confess our emptiness when we try to live without You.

Merciful God, in the face of all that’s happening in our world, help us remember You.

Loving God we call on You in our days of trouble and You give us peace.

Gracious God, You know every pebble in the sand, every fish in the ocean and every inch of our being. You created even the dust under our shoes for a purpose. You taught us to shake off the dust and keep moving forward.

Almighty God, create in us, a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within each one. Psalm 51:10.

Dear God, hear our cries and comfort all who are grief stricken today.

Strengthen all who are too weak to care for themselves and others.

Satisfy the righteous desires of all who are in need.

Heal the sick, clothe the naked, recover those who are lost and release the captives.

Savior, we pray for deliverance from injustice, evil, wars and destruction.

Help us to respond to Your call to our time of daily prayer at 1:11 pm.

Thank You for being with us. You’re closer than our breath.

You are our Spiritual Bread of Life and more.

Almighty God, feed us and heal all of sickness and disease especially the Viral Pandemic. Fill us with Your love, life lessons, and wisdom.

Give us strength for each day, bright hope, and patience throughout our days.

Help us to confidently walk in the Light of Your Holy presence daily.

As we park and pray at 1:11 pm, we thank YOU for hearing our prayers.

Thank YOU for this new day. Thank you for opening new doors, and windows of opportunities. Praise YOU for those destined to be YOUR children and grow as spiritual siblings. We celebrate Your Gifts of love, abundant life, and confidence to embrace new surroundings, new opportunities, and new ways to glorify You.

We park and pray at 1:11 pm for ourselves, families, friends, neighbors, and strangers.

Gracious God, receive our spoken and unspoken prayers for those who asked for prayer, those we remember, and for all in need of prayer.

We offer our love, our praise, and our thanks.

In our Savior’s Name we pray! Amen.
