Political FOMO

Abba Father,

Lord I am convinced I have Political FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and it is exhausting because of the information OVERLOAD. Lord I find myself addicted to the news reporting sites notifications on my phone. I am always in this hyper alert mode. Lord it’s like playing the staring game with our government to see who will blink first. LOL. Lord highlight scriptures and promises that will help our government to honor ALL American people not just Christians. Lord give me wisdom on how to best pray for our government.

Lord I have not a clue how to pray often for the lies keep piling up. Lord I pray for our government to seek wisdom but I wonder if I should be praying for another characteristic to be exhibited. Lord teach me how to pray for not just our leaders but those work for the leaders. Lord with the wildfires being started in so many directions, Lord teach us to recognize where our prayers need to stay focused. Lord thank you for power of prayer. Lord guide us on how to pray for change. Lord I lift up all these petitions in the name of Jesus – AMEN

Be a Life Vest

Abba Father,

Lord please bless all the encouragers today. Lord I pray you bless the person who loves to send notes. Lord I pray you bless the person who likes to give creative gifts to brighten someones day. Lord I pray for the person who sends a prayer to remind a person that they are never alone and that you are always with them. Lord I pray for the person who sees a sad friend or co-worker and ask if she can give them a hug or pray for them. Lord I pray for the person who prays blessings over someone who keeps coming to their mind. Lord all these folks are on an adventure with the Holy Spirit to spread your love. Lord may you continue to bless those doing kingdom work.

Lord please give your encouragers strength to continue to make a difference in a hurting word. Lord show them how their words of encouragement often feels like a life vest covering our hearts and lifting us up out of a funk. Lord send them confirmation that their words matter to the people who receive them. Lord rather it’s a thank you note, text message or phone call can you send encouragement to them so they keep showering their family, friends, neighborhoods, our nation and our world with love. Lord I thank you for the warriors who seek to speak life over people.  Lord continue to bless them.  I ask all of this in Jesus name – AMEN
