Hi Lord, it's me...

Hi Lord, its me.

We are getting older and things are getting bad here.

Gas prices are too high, no jobs, food and heating costs too high.

I know some have taken you out of our schools, government and even

Christmas, but Lord I'm asking you to come back
And re-bless America .

We really need you!

There are more of us who want you than those who don't!

Thank You Lord... I Love you.

A friend emailed this to us today. It kind of fits how we feel sometimes... We so need God!

This is simplistic, but it is that child-like faith that we need in our lives and in our world, the kind that invites Him to do and to be what He has always promised. I know that HE is our answer... to ALL of life!

He said we must to Him like little children so I think this is appropriate...We do need Him in every area of our life...It's just that many don't realize that fact....

I agree, sometimes though I have to cry with Habakkuk,3:18 Yet I will exult in the Lord; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
Because in 16 like him, my inward parts trembled, because I must wait quietly for the day of distress. I am scared but as Corrie Ten Boom said, God has only plans and not problems. He is still God. :)
I do feel just as a little child.

Oh Sonja, this prayer is what we need NOW. WE need to just come as we are and BE desperate because these are desperate times. I know NOTHING and I have no background to talk intelligently enough on the subject, but the things talked about in Revelations....don't you see some things becoming more apparent?

Let us indeed, Pray.

We all need to be as a child coming before the throne room...I see the faith of my own 5 year old approaching God with such expectancy.

I also cry out "America Bless God"..and if my people would humble themselves and pray then I WILL heal their, the Body of Christ are to humble ourselves. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Thanks for the reminder as we continue to be under this drought and heat wave, may it remind us to ask for physical and spiritual rains.

It may be a child's simple prayer, but in the end that is who we ALL are, children who come to daddy when -- all to sadly -- we've tried everything else to deal with the mess we've made. And right now one thing I pray for is that those in politics who claim to be Christian and claim the moral high ground in, well, everything, would actually BE more Christlike.

Right now, I don't see much Christlike love and behavior. Only the dead set, intolerant drive to win all arguments against those constantly referred to as the enemy. NOTHING of loving even our enemies. NOTHING of inviting the "halt and the lame" and treating "the least of these" in our land the way we want to be treated.

"Oh, Lord....We really need you."

Dear Sonja,
It does seem it gets worse with each year.... very sad. But I think the worse it gets the closer it gets to the coming of the Lord. I was holding my new grandbaby the other day and wondering what his world will be like... so much technology now , I can't imagine how much it will be then.
Thanks for coming by and visiting my new is more me. I am happy with it. The other one... I struggled constantly with what to post. I hope you will come follow me there.
Blessings and hugs from your friend Gwen.

Aww, that child-like faith!!! I agree with this prayer. We NEED GOD!!!

Thank you for sharing this with us today dear friend. I've missed my visits with you. I pray that all is well with you. Looking forward to catching up.

We all need to go back to a simple Child like faith, Sonja. Recently I got an email from a friend that there are moves to remove Christian pastors and teachers from the airwaves of America. Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, many others... if this move pushes through they will no longer allow the name of God to be mentioned over the air, and of course this affects a lot of Christian broadcasting and tv programs.

Yes, we need to pray this prayer with child like faith. We do need God...

THanks for sharing!

My brother and I were just talking about this very thing this evening. Things are so critical and surely God's people are going to turn themselves back to HIM.

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings!

Debbie Petras said...

Amen to this Sonja! Things are getting bad. I hear personal stories all the time. I believe Christians need to live out their faith and be the salt and light we are called to be. May we turn to the Lord and believe His promises and ask Him for His blessings.

Love you,

Sonja, this childlike faith is exactly what I need.
