For You are the Greatest...Our God

O Lord our God, we thank you for the gift of our jobs to sustain us.
We are ever so thankful Lord God for all the blessings bestowed upon us.
Look upon us with kindness and accept our humble offering of prayer for our concerns.
Father you know what lies deep within our hearts even before we speak it.
You are the Alpha and the Omega, the First and theLast, the Beginning and the End and all perfect gift comes from You alone.
You are the Fount of all grace and the source of all life.
Look upon us with kindess and in Your mercy, hear and answer our prayer.
Lord You are all knowing and You already heard the prayer petitions that we bring unto You...but You love it when many come and gather as one in spirit to have the same intention that many may come to know and see Your great power.
That Your Power may be unfolded to many and thus increase our faith.
Father we praise You, we bless You and we adore You.
May Your Holy Name be praised forever as we come before You in faith ...
believing in our hearts that it only takes to believe to see a miracle and yes Lord,we
believe...Jesus King of Mercy, we put our full faith and trust in You...

Five Finger Prayer

1.Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."
2. The first finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.
3. The second finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.
4. The third finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among you. " Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
Decide to pray for a friend, brighten someone's day! Copy and send this on to someone special... I did.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
