        (07/21/2000) having no lack
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: having no lack

[Psalm 104:10-11]
10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which
run among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the
wild asses quench their thirst.

I like one of the insights posted by one of our prayer
warriors, Jessica. The following is an excerpt:
[Psalms 104:11-22] "When I read this passage this
morning, I felt like I was back in my parents house.
When I was young and living at home, I don't remember
worrying about where my next meal was coming from. I
didn't worry about buying new clothes. When ever the
power went out, the question, "Did we pay the power
bill?" never entered my mind. I never worried about
these things because I trusted that my father was
capable of providing these needs, so that I never had
to concern myself with such things. So I lift the name
of the Lord on high, for I trust in Him as my great
provider. I feel like I still live in my Father's
house. Any need that I have, I take it to Jesus, (and)
my Father."

[Deuteronomy 2:7]
For the Lord thy God hath blessed thee in all the
works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this
great wilderness: these forty years the Lord thy God
hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.

Yes, God is our security and He is our heavenly
Father. Our security is not in our job, is not in our
skills, is not in our pay-cheque, is not in our
education. Our security is in God.

Even when the Israelites were murmuring in the
wilderness, God says that He KNOWS their walking in
this great wilderness and He had been with them and
they have LACKED NOTHING. Even when we are walking
through our wilderness, we will not lack anything
because God is our security and He will not let us
suffer lack. Let us learn to hold on to what God says
and lay claim to this blessing.

i. Please pray -- lauriemwalker
Please pray for my friend Steven!

ii. divorce -- sylvie98
Dear prayer partners: I have recently obtained a
lawyer for a divorce. I have been married for 4yrs and
I have no respect or trust in my husband. I so much
enjoyed the series on forgiveness recently and hoped
that it would shed some light on my situation since my
husband belives this is why we are in our current
situation because I can not forgive him for things
he's done. I realized after reading the passage on
forgiveness and trust that its up to him to earn my
trust and the three things that were stated in the
passage that he should do to earn that trust he has
not done. He is quick to say he's sorry and it won't
happen again but that is were it stops. I'm sorry can
not take away or undo what was said or done. He does
not want a divorce but I don't know how I can stay
when I have lost all trust and respect for him. Please
pray for me and my situation.

iii. To come out of the financial distress that I am
so awfully faced with every debt -- guest
Please pray for me to just once come out of this
financial distress I am placed with. I don't know
where to look but yes I have turned my plight to our
Lord Jesus. I prayed to Him that whatever this
situation I have come to was that I did it for a good
cause to help someone else but now they are just not
stretching their help to me. I want them to understand
my pain and help me. I can't say anything to the man
of the house whose name is Eddie as he is now jobless
but his daughter works. I had asked her to take out a
loan from the bank and help me pay this up. She keeps
giving me all excuses which I am afraid I can't
believe her but cannot say anything. Please pray that
Eddie also gets succeeded somewhere for a job and his
daughter whose name is Shanti gets the loan done.
Thanks and please reply me and pray much to our Lord
Jesus to just help me once to come out of this mess.
Thanks once again - Elvina Dsouza

iv. Pray for me -- scampomanes
Dear Brothers and Sister,
I really need prayers, I'm depressed and I need
directions as well. I've been working in this company,
but i guess my work was never appreciated. I'm still
struggling with family bills, children to support, job
that I have no idea what will lead me into. My prayer
time is going nowhere, I just have this feeling of
giving up, from my childhood i've been working hard
and to this day i'm still working very hard to meet
our ends. I know God will provide and He know's what
is best for me. So Lord take away my doubts and give
me a fresh feeling of joy and contentment. Assured me
that everything will be alright especially with my two
boys who is my greatest gift from you. Give me
direction Lord if I need to change job, but I'm so
scared... and help me to build up my self confidence
that I can make it in the job industry. Lord guide and
protect me for the sake of my children. Give me back
the joy and inner peace within. In this I pray in
Jesus Mighty Name. - sandy
