REJOICE ALWAYS, PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS; FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST FOR YOU. (1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18 *NKJV)

Dear Friend,
We are to rejoice even when one of our prayers isn’t
answered. Now that may seem hard to do but when we
realize that God knows what is best for us, it becomes easier
to understand! For some of our prayers, if answered, could
cause us much grief in the long run. After all only He knows
what the future holds, and what is best for us!

So, BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING
BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, WITH THANKSGIVING,
LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN TO GOD.
( PHILIPPIANS 4:6 ) because, THE EFFECTIVE, FERVENT
PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS MUCH.
( JAMES 5:16 )

Now Friend, there is also an added benefit to your
prayers, for they will lead you to a greater communion with
God, and a much greater understanding of His will for you
as well!
AND SPEAKING OF PRAYER,
I said a prayer for you today,
And I know God must have heard;
I felt the answer in my heart,
Although He spoke not a word.
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame,
( I knew you wouldn’t mind; )
I asked for priceless treasures rare,
Of a more lasting kind.
I prayed that He’d be near to you,
At the start of each new day,
To grant you health and blessings fair,
And friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you,
In all thing great and small,
But that you’d know His loving care,
I prayed most of all.

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
