Thanksgiving Thank You Cards Free Digital Download Gratitude Verses

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

 On the eve after elections social media became a really gloomy place to be. So I decided I would spend it creating something positive, something hopeful. 

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away ...I got to thinking how every year we are blessed to be asked to join family members & close friends for dinner.

So I thought I would create some quick cards that can be printed out to say... gee Thanks, 
for sharing your bounty!

Most peeps who know me know just how much I love food! There is something about Thanksgiving that brings out the inner Chef in people. Nothing makes me happier than to walk into a room 
where there is a delicious, huge spread.
Awe just thinking about it makes me Excited & very Thankful!!!

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Prayers & Worship / Free Download Prayer and Blessing Sheet and Wall Art Spanish Version Too

Friday, October 28, 2016



How many times have you looked someone in the eyes and with all sincerity said "I will pray for you"! Every part of you in that moment meaning it.

See I have come to learn that my heart & my intentions are to very well pray for that individual.
However my mind is another thing...
I always admire people who can remember every name and prayer request that comes their way–but my memory stinks!!!

 When I see a sister or brother in Christ at Church and they ask me to pray for their father who is having heart surgery or their child who is suffering from drug addiction–well I want to be sure I actually remember to do it!

 Once you spend some time praying for another person, they become hard to forget; you just have to remember to actually pray for them! That’s where a prayer journal or list comes in.

 I also believe that writing is another form of worship–so when I’m putting pen to paper, I’m doing it for the glory of God. He is in my heart and mind the whole time I’m writing and nobody except Him and me are ever going to see what’s on that list (most likely) so it truly is all about Him.

I created a prayer sheet that can be download and easily  used to list your prayers.

With in the prayer sheet you will find several different categories that I have created.
 1Timothy 2:1
"I exhort, therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, 
thanksgivings, be made for all and men"
Different kinds of prayers appear to be distinguished.

1.) Intercessory Prayer- Prayer made on behalf of another. This is where you plead selflessly with God for the needs of others. But it is also much more than that.  Intercessory prayer takes place in the spiritual world where the battles for our own lives, our families, our friends and our nation are won or lost. It's prayer that "presses on" until we "apprehend" God's will in whatever situation we are facing. Often this is where you wake up in middle of the night crying out for the name or burden that was placed on your heart. I won't go on only because as long as you are open to being used by God, who, whom and how is different for each individual. Jesus is the Greatest Intercessor ...to be used in this way is to fall under the mantle (wrapped in God's authority) of Christ.

2.) Urgent Prayer- A fervent request. This can be an appeal to God on behalf of yourself or another. When you are ready to take on "The Full Armour of God"... Similar to supplication prayer but the situation is dire. In Psalms 70 we see one of these urgent prayers.  While it is not a long prayer, it is one that cuts to the heart of the matter and expresses David’s need for God’s quick intervention.

3.) General Prayer Request-  Supplication... is praying on behalf of yourself and others. The prayer of supplication is generally a request for the person praying. The Bible includes many prayers of supplication & many examples are found in the Psalms by David... He prayed for Mercy, Leading, Deliverance & Persecution many times.

4.) Prayer of Confession- Simply put...any and all sin is separation from God. We live our lives imperfectly by choice, but we are also loved by God in whose image we were created. We can remake ourselves toward that image by our confession before God and each other. The one thing that keeps us from filling out this area  and truly asking for forgiveness of any kind is usually pride. Nine times out of ten I have pride written front and center as a confession. Praise God for His Grace!

5.) Prayer of Dreams & Visions- Thank You Father...Your Word tells us that we don’t have to fret or be anxious for anything, for You know exactly what you are doing. The Bible reveals to us that dreams are one of the ways that God speaks to us. Although not all dreams are from God, many of the dreams people have are divinely given.  We must learn to better understand the meaning of dreams, so we can find clues to our destiny in God and help other people find theirs as well.
This is new to me, but I want to hear God in any way I can. Frankly the Faith I have that God answers prayers is the same Faith I have that He speaks to me , weather it be a vision or a dream. Acts 2:17

6.) Prayer of Salvation- We strive to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and as our hearts and minds are transformed by the presence of the Holy Spirit we are able to begin to love others as ourselves. So it's simple... Do we truly love God with all our hearts? Than we must love others to Salvation. After all, the gospel of Christ “is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.
This section should be the one that is always completely filled and new each month! 

I created a Praise sheet...
capture all of those “Yay, God!” moments.


Most of us have probably had those times when we needed God’s immediate help.  Most of us have probably felt that level of panic and fear that David was likely feeling, and have reached out to God to feel His peace.  What is so amazing about David’s prayer is that even in the midst of his distress, he does not forget to give God praise.  Even in the course of begging God for help to save him in a desperate situation, David stops to take the time to worship God for His goodness and His salvation.  In our moments of panic, let us all learn from David’s example.  Let us not go to God with our immediate needs, and forget to honor Him with our worship and praise.  Even in the direst of circumstances, we can still find a reason to praise God. 

I also created a Word Art for you to hang o your wall or frame on your desk.



 
 This is for you Mom... Love You!
