"In this manner, therefore pray:
'Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation.
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory.
Matthew 6:9-13 (nkjv)
Relieve yourself of the stresses of the day by trusting God with your day.
Wake up each morning, (before you even put your feet on the floor) and give your day (back) to God.
Don't get out of bed with the responsibility of your day on you.
You just prayed that the Father made everything and owns everything. And if you believe that, then you should be able to give Him your spouse, your children, your finances, your job. And prove (test) Him that He is able to handle your day better than you try to do each day.
One day at a time. We are not promised tomorrow. Let's just deal with "today".
Close your appointment book.
Stop worrying over things you have no control.
Pray through the day and God will direct your steps.
You will not be disappointed.
And as you do this one day after another, when you look back, you will see that God made a way where it seemed there was no way.
He is the Way Maker, the Light in darkness, the Cleft in the rock (where we run and hide), the Provider.
His Name moves mountains and brings freedom to the bound.
Reach out for Him.
Call on Him.
That most beautiful Name.
Call on Him.
He'll give you the strength you need to not only face your day, but have victory in it. In His Name! Exalt Him! There is no other name.
There is healing, power, joy, freedom and victory in the Name of Jesus!

Call on the mighty name of Jesus throughout the day. In every situation you can have a victory as you give Him the Glory. Speak His truth and His promises into your life.
There is Strength in that Name!
There is Joy in that Name!
Glorify the Wondrous Name of Jesus!
Oh, I know there are times in our lives when we are "troubled" by all that's going on around us. But we must remember that though we are in this world, we are not of this world. And that all that we need to do is to stay connected with Him and He will take care of us.
Jesus said in Isaiah 43:2, He will be with us in the fire and through the storm. As He was with the 3 men in the fiery furnace, there was a 4th man. And when they came out they didn't even have the smell of smoke on them. (Daniel 3)
Jesus told the disciples that they were going over to the other side (because they had a purpose on that other side). He prepared them to get through the storm by telling them beforehand that they were going to get to the other side. In the midst of the storm, Peter just needed to know that it was Jesus there (in the storm with Him) and he said to Jesus, "if it is you, Lord, just command me to come to you." (Mark 6:45-50;Matt. 14:22-32)

As long as Jesus is with you in the fire or through your storm, know that when you come through it, you will be walking in your purpose for that time in your life. For as He said to Peter while he was walking on the water, "Be of Good Cheer, it is I, be not afraid." (Mark 6:50)
Call on Jesus! All things are possible.
