Thank you for the Gentle Whisper

"Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
(Jeremiah 33:3)

While doing household chores around the house I heard him speak. One of the things I often do is make lists. I'm pretty organized. I'm making my list. I reach out to grab a "straightedge" to draw some lines. I grabbed a card, made my lines, tossed it back into the pile. Oh boy! You know that moment when the Lord speaks to you?

The Lord whispered, pick up the card and pray for those girls. You see it was a card with a photo of about 300 girls from Africa. A card had been given out a few weeks back so we would remember to pray. So, I grabbed the card and read the Scripture verse on the front of the card and that became my prayer.

Today I want to pray for your loved ones also who do not know the Lord. They may know of him or ever really understood the message of Salvation. We are sinners in need of forgiveness. A Savior has come to rescue us. His name is Jesus.

Lord, may they call to you and know that you will hear and answer. A heart broken and yielded to you, you will not turn away. Speak to them of great and mighty things that they do not know of. Cleanse them of the sin they have committed against you. Bring healing to their soul and may they desire a right relationship with you, their Maker. Let joy be found in their homes and rejoicing. Heaven rejoices and we will too!

Lord forgive us for carelessly forgetting to bring to you those we love and that you love even more.

God bless you!~Liz
