A psalm of David
O Lord, I call to you; come quickly to me.
Here my voice when I call to you.
May my prayer be set before you like incense;
may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.
Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil
to take part in wicked deeds
with men who are evildoers;
let me not eat of their delicacies.
Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness;
let him rebuke me—it is oil on my head.
My head will not refuse it.
Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds of evildoers;
their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs,
and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken.
They will say, “As one plows and breaks up the earth,
But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD;
in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Keep me from the snares they have laid for me,
from the traps set by evildoers.
Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
while I pass by in safety.
Do you pray everyday?
Do you include “Thank You” in your prayer?
I believe most of us pray when we are in need or desperate.
I have learned that it’s about being thankful for what the Lord has already done for us. Look at the everyday miracles and express your gratefulness to God. Give thanks and affirm what will be today and in the future for our father will provide. Placing yourself in that positive attitude at the start of each day will have you Thanking God for more and more. Fellowship Page welcomes your prayer requests, Thanksgivings, and other expressions of faith.

Power of Prayer:
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace(the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy[for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need[appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3(NIV)
“Some of the things you may be frustrated about right now, ten years from now you will look back and thank God for not answering that prayer the way you wanted or for not opening up that door. You may not be able to see it right now but that’s what faith is all about.” Joel Osteen-Become A Better You Daily Devotional
“I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.”
I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul;
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor. Proverbs 21:21(NIV)
“If you will keep pressing forward, if you will keep believing, God says He will take your negative experiences, turn them around, and He will use them to your advantage.”Joel Osteen-Become A Better You
But God shows and clearly proves His[own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.” Romans 5:8(AMP)
“The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done.” Mother Teresa
