Friends,

Yesterday, God allowed me to carry the burdens of my sisters who posted on my blog or who submitted a prayer request to Proverbs 31. The last I heard, we had almost 500 prayer requests submitted yesterday - that is a one-day record for us.

All day as I prayed, I sensed that the Lord wanted to work miracles in many lives. I continually asked Him for that for my sisters in pain. If God worked a miracle in your life, please tell us about it. We will give Him all the glory.

This morning, I spent some time in God's Word, asking Him to show me scriptures that would encourage those who are worried, fearful, anxious and shaken. Below you'll see what He selected. I pray God's Word continues to lift you up in these difficult times. God's not going anywhere, and neither am I.

In His Love,
Glynnis

Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

Romans 8:36-39, "As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Mark 6:50-51, “Immediately he spoke to them and said, 'Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid.' Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed …” (I loved that Jesus climbed in the boat!!!)

Psalm 91 – all of it! http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=psalm%2091&version=NIV

Psalm 25:3, “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.”

Psalm 33:20, “We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.”

Psalm 116:7-9, “Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.”

1 Corinthians 2:9, “However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”

Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”


We praise you God for what You have done, what You are doing right now that we can't see, and what You will do! We will give you all the glory for Your might acts. Open our eyes to see you at work. Bring Your Holy Spirit to comfort, encourage, strengthen, refresh, give discernment and hope. We can't do it without You. But in You all things are possible. Be our strength today. Be our hope today. In Jesus name, Amen.

Glynnis,

Thank you for praying for me, as I had laid my burdens at the Lord's feet both as a recent post and as a prayer request yesterday.

The Bible verses God gave you to share are wonderful. In particular, I felt touched by Psalm 116:7-9. Indeed, I have had my soul delivered from death, had my eyes dried of the many tears I cried, and have been given the proper path to keep from stumbling over those same old rocks.

I have yet to feel true peace, but at least I am no longer in deep despair. Gracious thanks to all who prayed.

Thank You for your messages that have blessed so many of us. I have received my word from the Lord a few weeks ago, but I still have been shakey in my faith.

I feel so bad that I doubt him at his word. I know in the physical world there is no solution to this problem, but in the spirtual world, God can fix anything. I continuely reminded myself of Romans 4:18 and still my faith was shakey.

After reading your passage, I taped a posted noted to my computer monitor at work saying "A ram in on the way". Through out the day, I was talking to God and told him that I have came to church with a heavy heart and crying for past few times, but not this service that I was going in with a worship and a praise.

When I arrived at church, the message was on praise and worship, so I knew that I was on track with God. Pastor said that " Your victory is in your praise." So I wrote down, My Victory is in my Praise.

I started to think that I already knew the outcome to my situation. God had already written out my life's story while I was in my mother womb.I just needed to stand and pass this test and watch the miracle God promised me come to pass.

Through church service, I praised God for what he has done for me in my past, present,and future. I have tried today just to praise him without asking for anything from him. Even if this situation doesnt turn out how I expect, I will still praise God; because he will do what is best for me.

Lord,I still thank you and praise you and still love you, because you didnt forget about me.

I just wanted to share this with other that they maybe bless at well.

Your Victory is in your Praise!

Glynnis,

Thanks for praying for me. I had doubted God, I had questioned His love for me and more than once I thought He had forgotten me. I read the Bible verses you shared with us, and I received a blessing this evening. I praise God and although I don't understand Him I know that He is by my side and will never leave me.

Thank you for the prayers offered for me.

The verses have led me to an area of light where there was total darkness. As I laid my burdens at my Father's feet I felt a sense of peace. All has not be resolved, but I believe in prayer and the Work and am assured that all will be resolved according to God's will and in His time.

Thanks for being their to lift our burdens.

Glynnis,

Thank you for sharing these words of Truth today...they serve as an encouragement to me personally, but I also have a few hurting friends for whom I can pray these words of hope today.

Love you,
