Prayer for the Month of Shooting Stars

“The heavens declare the glory of God...” So they do.


Dear God, three thousand years ago, a shepherd boy who loved you counted his sheep at night with the great stars blazing down. Years later, as a mighty king, he wrote: “The heavens declare the glory of God...” So they do.

That’s why on August nights I love to watch for shooting stars, those golden streaks of fire, tiny visitors from outer space, incandescent from the friction that they meet when they invade our atmosphere.

God, let my passage through this world glow and sparkle sometimes so that those who watch may say, “Ah, look. Did you see that?”

Meaning they have glimpsed a fragment of your glory.

One of my favorite Bible verses. I love to quote it on a cloudless night as I gaze into the sky. And to get the privilege of seeing a falling star, just awsome! Totally awsome!God's wonderful creations.

Ivy, May I pray for you?

"Beloved Father in heaven, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. Bless Ivy with a great career job so that she may regain financial health. Give her peace and hope. We ask this in the name of Jesus so that You will receive the glory. Amen and amen."

Today as I send this message..I have received an eviction notice but with reading the Word and just believing that God is working things out, I know that through all that I have been through that God will work things out. I lost my job and had to take a minimum wage job and literally can't pay my rent but God reassures me that he has this and not to worry, so you know what..that's what I'm going to do..NOT WORRY!!

blessings to you ivy...if He parts the waters and multiplies loves and fish, your problems will be easily remedied by Him.
