A New Day

May 4, 2009 1 By Lori
Today has been busy…. I am making new goals of things to do each day…

Here are the new goals I started today….

* Pray before getting out of bed
* Read / Pray before going downstairs
* Exercise on the WiiFit
* Start diet – using Sparks People
* Blog everyday
* Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day – I am at 7

Some of the above took a bit longer – especially the diet stuff. I needed to figure out what I was going to do…. I ended up creating a new account…. and spent awhile looking around and earning points…. LOL I also started posting at Grace Today a wonderful weight loss forum… I have been there off and on since 2004. I actually lost 70 lbs over there, but I gained back some with my youngest….

We had an awesome service yesterday at church! Watch my blog for some radical changes in my life…. I am really excited about what is going to be happening, but it might be happening slowly…. This is a week of prayer at our church – Thursday is National Day of Prayer – we will have someone praying for 24 hours from our church… We took a slot for our whole family to join together…. hopefully my hubby can join us to through the internet during that time….

We also looked at the Lord’s Prayer – a model for us to follow…

We are to pray to Our Father – it is an intimate relationship – the word in Hebrew means “draw near”

We are to Hallow His name – God is Holy, we should recognize who He is!

We are to come to Him in submission – Your will be done – we should joyfully, willingly surrender to God’s will.

We are to pray for our needs – the words in the prayer mean – “enough for the coming day”…

How often do you pray??? Everyday??? How often during the day???

The Bible tells us that we are to “Pray without ceasing” and Philippians 4:6
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

What a great GOD we have that He desires to know us intimately. That He wants us to talk to Him – He wants to help us in all things!!! He wants you to pray for the biggest requests down to the smallest details!!!

I am so THANKFUL for such and AWESOME and LOVING GOD!!!
