Praise to the CHAMPION

“It will become a sign and a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.”

 Isaiah 19:20

Have you ever given your best effort at something, but lost? Have you ever won a competition and been named the champion? Even the most humble of people want to win. We want to be on the winning team. Good news is in store for all who love and follow Christ. He is the Champion of the World! He's the winner. He's the One who will drive home the winning points. You're on the right side! It's coming. It's going to happen. And you will be part of the victory celebration! 

LORD, You are the CHAMPION over all! I praise You!

Praise to our CARING LORD

“casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” 

1 Peter 5:7

What do you do with worry? How do you respond when you get a bad diagnosis? To whom do you turn in the middle of the night when you are afraid, sad, or alone?  It's normal to feel anxious, despair, and worry. But what Jesus wants us to know is that He's with us. And, He cares for us. Just like you might cast a fishing line into the water, cast your anxiety on Jesus. He will be with you through your days and nights, one moment at a time.      

LORD, thank You for being a CARING LORD on whom I can cast my anxiety!

Praise to the CAPTAIN of the HOSTS

 .... 'I indeed come now as CAPTAIN OF THE HOSTS of the Lord.'

And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, ‘What has my lord to say to his servant?’  The CAPTAIN OF THE LORD'S HOSTS said to Joshua, ‘Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.’ And Joshua did so.”

Joshua 5:14-15

Do you have a whopper of a problem? Perhaps you're even where the Lord has led you, but the situation seems more than you can handle.  When Joshau found himself in a tough place, the Lord appeared to him as Captain of the Lord's hostJoshua bowed down and said, "What has my lord to say to his servant?" The Lord told Joshua that the place he was standing was holy ground; then told him what to do. Isn't that the position each of us needs to take; one of asking our Lord to speak to us and tell us what to do? Let's be wise, listen, and obey. If we do, the enemy will not defeat us. 

CAPTAIN of the HOSTS, I bow before You and praise You. Speak to my heart and mind. Tell me what to do.

Praise to Him WHO CALLS into BEING 

God, who gives life to the dead and CALLS INTO BEING that which does not exist.”

 Romans 4:17

You might say "dead" or "hopeless" when looking at a person who has no interest in the gospel or has turned their back on God. But nothing is hopeless or impossible with God. He's in the business of bringing life to the dead and calling into being that which does not exist.   

Lord Jesus, You are a great and awesome God who gives life to the dead and CALLS INTO BEING THAT WHICH DOES NOT EXIST. I give You praise, honor, and glory!

TIP: If you're concerned for someone who has no interest in spiritual matters, you can pray and record in your Prayers of My Heart prayer journal "Lord, You who call into being that which doesn't exist; call into being a spiritual hunger in (name of person)." Then, watch and rejoice as you see the person becoming more interested in spiritual matters.

Praise to the BUILDER of ALL THINGS

“For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” 

Hebrews 3:4

Sometimes when we look at our lives, jobs, situation, or relationships, we might feel discouraged or hopeless. "I don't see any way out of this," we might say. Or we might think, "The best of times is over." However, that's when we need to take another glance - an upward one and remember who God is. He is the one who engineered the heavens. He is the brain behind chromosomes. If He can build the heavens and our bodies, I'm pretty sure He can reconstruct what is broken in our lives. Turn to the Builder of All Things and ask Him to build His kingdom in your life. 

LORD, I Praise You and submit my life to You, the BUILDER OF ALL THINGS!

In Prayers of My Heart, we can pray and record our prayer for family and friends, "Build their lives on Your truths, Lord."
