Prayers for protection

Good morning, a little late, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the rainy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

I was surprised when I stepped outside and felt sprinkles earlier and since then, we have had a nice shower. Hopefully, the rain will pass on by the time I am ready to go shopping.

Yesterday was sunny and so hot, I thought it unusual to see only a few cars in the Park. The grass and trees were simmering in the sun, so the shade of the trees was most welcome. I am still not up to walking, but the good thing about that, is that my sore foot is not sore from the long rest! :o) God is good!

I asked Terry, my friend the superintendent of the Park, if he knew if the baby gators were still at the shelter. He said he didn't have a clue! He is so busy with paperwork and meetings he doesn't have a chance to get on the boardwalk!

I thought it would be a good day to share the scripture prayers I pray for most of you each morning. I have been adding to the list of names that I insert over the years, to make the prayers personal for all of you.

Eph. 1:16 I have not stopped giving thanks for _____remembering you in my prayers.

Isa. 40:31 ____hopes in the Lord, who will renew ___strength.
____will soar on wings like eagles.
____ will run and not grow weary.
____ will walk and not be faint.

____be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God, ____, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For ____struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, ____, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. In addition to the armor, ____,take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Eph. 6:10-13

You, dear ones, are from God, and have overcome, because the one who is in You, is greater than the one Who is in the world.
1 John 4:4

No weapon forges against you all will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of ____, who trusts in Him. Nahum 1:7

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work in you all, To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen!
Eph. 3:20,21

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
