For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12


Blog - Love's Comfort: A Prayer

2 Corinthians 1:2-5 (NKJV): Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

MAY GOD wrap you in His strong arms of protection and supply all your need according to His riches in glory by CHRIST JESUS. May He dry every tear and soothe every pain and remind you that weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning, and may you remember that GOD is your refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble, and He will never leave you or forsake you, for you are born of His Spirit, and you are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image, according to His likeness.

May you see in your life time the character and reflection of the LIVING GOD who is GOOD, who is JUST, and who is LOVE—EVERLASTING—and may you experience the safety and security of His embrace, know the compassion, faithfulness, greatness, and grace of His heart and receive the eternal rewards of a life SOULED-OUT and a life WELL-SPENT when you graduate from earth to heaven, from time to eternity.

May you feel GOD’s comforting presence and encounter the power of His transforming touch, and may you bear the Fruit of His Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, gentleness, goodness, kindness, and self-control.

May you feel the hand of GOD lifting you, see the finger of GOD guiding you, and believe that GOD is in control and knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, to work all things together for good because you love Him and are called according to His purpose.

May you hear the still, small voice of GOD urging you to be still and know that He is GOD and reminding you to be strong and of good courage, to be not afraid and know that He is with you, wherever you go, and GREATER is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

May the everlasting FATHER of MERCIES bless you richly, and may the GOD of ALL COMFORT be with you in times good and bad, in triumphs and trials, so that you who are comforted are blessed to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort that you have received.

May the LORD bless you and keep you; may the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

May you always remember GOD LOVES YOU and be blessed, loved, uplifted, comforted, and encouraged, foremost by HIM—your heavenly FATHER, your LORD and SAVIOR, and your COMFORTER—GOD.

Finally, may the grace of the LORD JESUS CHRIST and the love of GOD, and the fellowship of the HOLY SPIRIT be with you all.

In Jesus’ name.
