The Power of Prayer

           Bridge to Healing

 
 

Where am I going with this thought? Please work with me
here. If possible...close your eyes for a moment. Picture a
bridge... left.... middle... and ......right side. You are looking
at it head-on.
The song "Bridge Over Troubled Waters"..,and THE LIVING
WATER comes to mind! Things to consider....
Your situation, your age, your expectations for all.
God has a plan for each and everyone. Our lives have a
beginning, a middle and an end. What is really important
and where do we start? God is the "travel agent" Would it
be fair to assume we all need healing in our lives?
One wouldn't approach the bridge without plan. One
would go to the "map of life" being the Bible.
Things in our past may still hurt, but we cannot make it go
away by just wishing. Our present may be
overwhelming...and our future uncertain. As long as we re
drawing breath there is HOPE.That's good news!!! A
relationship with God means interaction.-as with any
relationship. A suggestion for healing of any situation. As
soon as your eyes open thank God for another day...and
ask what is the plan for today, God? Be positive in what
comes out of your mouth. Healing begins with the first step
across the bridge
of life. Compassion for others and acceptance of God's
grace and forgiveness of ourselves doesn't come from the
Pain-Free times in our lives. Wouldn't we all like no pain? It
is a known fact that we feel COMPASSION having lived
THROUGH experiences.
GOD HELD US BY THE HAND OR perhaps read and RE-VISIT
THE "FOOTPRINTS" POEM.
Let us pray:
Triune God, You CREATED me as a unique individual with a
purpose for my life. You want what is best for my life no matter
what age I am at present.
Once I ask for forgiveness my sin through Your Grace is erased
as "far as the east is from the west."
You ARE JESUS as the GREAT HEALER AND TEACHER as an
example of how to live our lives and bring comfort to others
who are hurting. You ARE the HOLY SPIRIT guiding us from
within ...never leaving us alone to face whatever life brings our
way.
Help us to realize PRAYING has two parts. We TALK to
you...and then we LISTEN to you. Nothing fancy just
sincere!That BRIDGE CALLED LIFE can be as long or short as YOU
intend.
Thank You for CREATING us, I believe in the SALVATION AND
HEALING that JESUS provides, and Thank You for the HOLY
SPIRIT who guides my every step
over the BRIDGE CALLED LIFE, and THE LIVING WATER that
quenches our thirst, heals our pain and sustains our lives.
Amen.
