Morning Prayer For 12312019

Good Morning Lord, Help me to cease striving and to trust that you will give me all I need today to do the work you’ve given me to do.

You will be faithful to complete the good work you’ve started, and as I step out into my day, I declare Your sovereignty over every area of my life. Amen. 

Al, Kevin and Good Friends in the Morning,



Tell the Truth Always

My mother has a wise saying: “If you don’t lie, you never have to remember what it was that you said. If you have to recount a story or experience, it’ll simply be the truth over and over.”

It’s a simple concept, but more often than not, one we struggle to adhere to. Take the next opportunity you have to stretch the truth, and resist that temptation. Shoot straight. Enjoy the freedom and peace of mind that results. (

A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies. Proverbs 14:5

God is Faithful

The key to the effectiveness of this passage requires us to make a decision – if the temptation is there, God will always provide a way of escape. We have to chose to use it. (

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Better Than

Sharing Hope: He arrived and saw God’s grace in action there, so he rejoiced and urged them to remain faithful to the Lord, to maintain an enduring, unshakable devotion. Barnabas truly was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit, full of faith. A very large number of people were brought to the Lord. ~ Acts 11:23-24 (VOICE)

Praise Celebration goes on… God answers

prayer - baby -dads handsGod answers: I asked God what His will was for my life. A few minutes later, a man I never met before told me, “God has called you to ……….” (sorry I’m not going into details, I hope you understand) I will say, it was the exact same thing that was already on my heart, but I was afraid it might be from my own personal desires and not God. A month later, I was at a street ministries conference and was doubting again. I asked God if this was really what He wanted me to do. I went up front and another man I had never met came up to me and said, “God has called you to …” I told him that another man said that a month ago and he replied,”In the presence of two or more witnesses all truths are confirmed.” This all happen in 2010, I’ve stopped doubting Him. He wants you to stop doubting Him and trust Him, too!
God brought me back just in time: I was at the end of my rope with God. But in His awesome, faithful, long suffering and total love, He brought me back right before my best, closest friend of 25 years passed away. I don’t even want to think of where I would be right now if God hadn’t been right there at the right time to woo me to do the right thing. I am closer and more full of Him now than I ever have been. He is a FAITHFUL, ever so loving God that will pull us out of the deepest pit….even if we put ourselves there. Praise His Holy Name!
Thank God: I just want to say thank you Jesus for everything for my family’s health and for having a job I thank you God for everything. Amen
