I invite you to join me in prayer.

Heavenly Father,

I give you praise today.

You are the author of every day of my life and every season of my year. 

I praise you for all the blessings that you have put in my life.

Lord, my life is very busy. Yet, I hear you calling to me to slow down and let the beauty of autumn capture my attention today.

I hear you calling to me

to slow down

and allow the dazzling colors of the trees

to refresh my mind, my emotions, and my body. 

I feel the cool, crisp autumn breezes. They remind me of your invisible power and majesty. 

Father, the crunching of the leaves under my feet remind me of the passage of time. It wasn't long ago that those leaves were green...  I am prompted to consider how short life is. 

Your Word says in

Isaiah 40:8,

 "The grass withers, the flower fades, 
But the word of our God stands forever.”

Lord, I will hear you
as you remind me of
the briefness of life
and the
steadiness of Your Word.

I will hear you
as you tell me to be wise with my days.

I call out

as the psalmist did in

Psalm 90:12 - 

"So teach me to number my days,
That I may gain a heart of wisdom."

Lord,

I re-dedicate myself to you today.

You are Wisdom. You are Love. You are Awe-Inspiring -

in your Name I pray.

You are Healing. You are Mercy. You are Life-Giving -

in your Name I pray.

Blessed be the name of Jesus!

Amen

Tuesday

Today we have a

Prayer for a Friend.

Today,

I ask you to

choose a friend

that you want to bless through prayer.

This prayer is written for a woman.

Please adapt for a man.


Heavenly Father,

I lift my friend _____ up to you in prayer.

I thank you for her friendship.

I praise you for all the blessings that you have put into her life.

She stays very busy. She accomplishes many things each day. I pray that you would remind her to keep balance in her life. 

I pray that the beauty of autumn,

with its crimson colors and golden hues,

will capture her attention today.

May she slow down and allow the vibrant colors of the trees to refresh her mind, her emotions, and her body. 

May the cool, crisp autumn breezes remind her of your invisible power and your majesty. 

May the crackling and crunching of the leaves under her feet remind her of the continual cycle of the seasons and how short life really is. 

May she slow down and realize how brief life is and how much she needs to gain daily nourishment from your Word.

Lord, your autumn days display your creativity and your splendor. May this day draw ______ to praise you and take joy from your goodness.

In Jesus' Name I pray,

Amen

Healing Prayer for a Friend

Wednesday

Recently,

I was telling a close friend about creating this page.

She told me that

she had written a poem

about autumn

when she was a young girl in school.

She still remembers it with fondness

each autumn season.

Below, I share it with you...


Of all the year,

I love the autumn best -

For then I see God's beauty everywhere.

And nature speaks to me with all its zest.

And surely nothing can with this compare.

When winter winds

blow all the branches bare.

I do not grieve at all.

For next year there will be - 

another fall.

Genesis 8:22 NKJV

says,

“While the earth remains,

Seedtime and harvest,

Cold and heat,

Winter and summer,

And day and night

Shall not cease.”

Thursday

An Autumn Devotional

I have been thinking a lot about 

the leaves of the trees

and the cycles of the seasons.


The golden and crimson leaves

remind me that

when

summer is over,

the leaves begin to get their nourishment 

cut off.

Then they will soon fall away from the tree.


I am like the leaves

in that

without nourishment from my source

- who is God -

I will "fall away" from God.

-

I need daily nourishment

from reading the Bible.

psalm-117

I thank God

that he is reminding me today

to put him first in my life.


A Prayer for our Loved Ones

Dear Lord,

We lift up our loved ones in prayer.

We pray that they will be reminded today

of how much

they need nourishment

from you.

In the Loving name of Jesus, we pray,

Amen
