Daily Prayer for July 25th, 2014 

Lord, help me to understand that my temperament, as well as those I will come in contact with today, is a gift from you

Sometimes we miss the obvious–and never is this truer than when it comes to dealing with ourselves. Mood swings, emotional reactions, ups and downs, knee-jerk responses, and apparently incorrigible behavioral ruts are the cause of countless heartaches and frustrations with ourselves and others.

– Father Thomas Berg, L.C., M.A., Ph.D. from

Let us give thanks for the one constant in life: a God who knows us

There’s global competition, technology changes, more regulations than ever before. It’s just complicated. Things are harder today.

Daily Prayer for July 22nd, 2014 

Lord, protect those who feel they are in the fight of their lives, from that which they don’t’ see coming

I reflected back over the past several months. It was hard to believe that the broken leg, kidney stones, lost work, financial stress, three surgeries and the cancer scare had all happened in half a year’s time. I realized I had been feeling like I’d been in a fight. For months I’d had my guard up waiting for the next punch life could throw. Now, though, I felt completely relaxed. If I’d let my mind roll with that boxing metaphor a little longer, I might’ve followed it to its logical conclusion: In a boxing match, the fighters absorb some vicious blows because they’re ready for them. And usually, the knockout punch was the one they didn’t see coming.

Daily Prayer for July 21st, 2014 

May the knowledge that my prayers are being heard be enough to get me through this current obstacle

There is no guarantee that God will make wealthy those who obey Him in their business endeavors. What God does guarantee is an eternal profit with all temporal needs met.

Daily Prayer for July 18th, 2014 

Let us give thanks for the business relationships we’ve developed

If working a room is so much fun and so profitable, why do our hearts thump, our palms sweat and our eyes glaze over when we think about it? One reason is that 88 percent of us think of ourselves as shy.

Daily Prayer for July 17th, 2014 

Lord, may I reflect on my own spiritual journey today with the realization that others are following theirs

Looking back now, I mourn the mutual wounds inflicted in verbal battles with the ‘unsaved.’ In fact, I have chosen to delete that particular term from my vocabulary as I have learned that even with my $500 European-designer bifocals, I cannot see into a person’s heart to know his spiritual condition. All I can do is tell the jagged tale of my own spiritual journey and declare that my life has been better for having followed Christ.

Daily Prayer for July 16th, 2014 

Lord, may your peace follow us as we travel for business or pleasure

Whatever town or village you enter, find out who in it is worthy, and stay there until you leave. As you enter the house, greet it. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.

– Matthew 10:11-13

Daily Prayer for July 15th, 2014 

Keep walking with me, Lord, along the path you have chosen for me, I pray

During and after the recession, the U.S. economy has been too weak for many workers to undertake the sort of job-hopping that economists say is critical to building careers and advancing the nation’s long-run growth prospects. The consequence: Even many Americans who have remained employed have stunted their earnings growth by staying pinned down to their current jobs.

Daily Prayer for July 14th, 2014 

For the optimism that comes from knowing that I’ve got the promise of the Almighty as my protection, I pray

The French philosopher Voltaire once defined optimism as ‘the mania of maintaining that everything is well when we are wretched.’ Some people are blessed with an upbeat personality that allows them to view life through rose-colored glasses and ‘make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.’ But even sunny-souled people can’t ward off all the shadows, certainly not forever, not without a sure word for an omnipotent God.
