175- Christmas Prayers
December 7, 1985
Today I must CAST MY BURDENS ON YOU AGAIN, Savior!
*the boys’ clothes – that we would ALL have very decent clothing to take and wear on our Christmas trip to my parents. Thank You, Savior.
*the boys’ gifts – that we could give them a few NICE presents that we are not ashamed but thrilled to give. Also some items for their stockings.
*a Bible for Dan – that’s what he wants for Christmas. I rebuke doubt away from this request. YOU CAN DO THIS!
*that mailed items will arrive at their destinations before Christmas – Beth, JoAnn, Karen, Vanna
*getting our vehicle very cleaned up inside-and-out for our trip to my parents’ house
*hearing from You about Elim
*fitting in home school, Christmas errands, and sanity, plus exercise and outside play for the boys
*should I try to go to the Thursday Intercessory prayer meeting beginning today at church?
*what about the Spiritual Warfare class beginning in January?
*our Christmas letter – to be printed, have postage, be addressed, and have notes on them –and mailed before Christmas
*taking the boys Christmas shopping with their $6 each
*putting away or giving away all of the clothes that have been coming to me – from JoAnn, Connie, Mom, and Virgi
*small gifts for Jan and pastors
*a dog! Carol, after we had been praying nightly on the phone, said out of the blue—you need a dog! She’s right. I could then walk in the mornings, the boys would have a play pal. Hers is big and gentle, yet barks at strangers not friends. He’s hairy, but an outside dog.
*Dan said we could support more missionaries once the $179 no longer goes out monthly for our vehicle.
*Put walking back in my day. It is very dark from 6-6:30am.
PRAISE GOD FOR ALL OF THESE NEEDS.
They are wonderful needs to have and I am excited about HOW GOD WILL HANDLE EACH ONE.
I soundly and confidently rebuke all doubt that God can and will take care of each one.
I open my spiritual eyes to SEE ways of provision that are totally unique.
I welcome Your hand moving, and I open my hands WIDE to receive from You.
Bless You, bless You, Father. Keep speaking to Dan and I about Your desire to provide. Keep building our faith. Keep moving into our lives. Keep Yourself overflowing from us to others who need You!
