Good morning friend, here is today's prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father, 

You are in control, even when my life seems so out of control.

Please help me to keep my focus on You and Your will.

I want to trust in You even in the midst of circumstances I don’t understand.

Keep me honest and humble before You.

I pray that You will provide my daily needs and give me the ability to help those who are in need, spiritually and physically,...in my family, my community, and around the world.

Guide me to work with my brothers and sisters in Christ to accomplish great things for You, and to bless others.

In the name of Jesus I trust and pray, amen.

Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

Jesus: God With Us (Immanuel)

They shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us." Matthew 1:23

The angel told Joseph to name Jesus Immanuel, which means “God with us.” When Jesus was born, God visited humanity. He came to live with people and to die for their sins. Jesus was God, even though many did not recognize Him. Today, Jesus is still Immanuel, even when people don’t feel His presence. Because Jesus is with you, you can get Him to help you face your problems. He’s with you, even when you don’t realize He’s near. However, you must call on Immanuel to get His help. He is Immanuel, which means He’ll be there when you need Him.

Immanuel, there are many times I can’t feel Your presence. I want to feel Your nearness. I pray about my problems, but they’re still here. I know You’re by me. Manifest Yourself; help me make it through my day.

Because He’s Immanuel, you can win when you let Him direct your efforts. First, He will give you hope when you feel like giving up. Then He will give you a courageous spirit to carry you through the rough spots. Next, He will show you what to do and will guide your steps. Finally, He’ll give you tenacity to press on to victory. Immanuel is with you, but you must call on Him to get help.

Immanuel, I know You are with me. Help me feel Your guiding presence this day. Release Your indwelling power to do everything I’m supposed to do. I claim Your presence for victory today. Amen.

Jesus will be with you everywhere because he is God.
