I Need Some Attention

I need some attention

Do you desire to have someone pay attention to you? I was visiting a new hair salon with my beloved today, and this is what someone said in conversation: “I need some attention”. So, I thought I would see if anyone else identifies with this statement.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,

I pray for those who are needing attention, and someone who will listen to them.

Thank you that your thoughts towards them are always good. For you are a kind and loving Father.

Give them your consideration by showing them your tender mercies. Pamper them with your love, comfort them in their pain, and soothe them in their sorrow. Where they have mistreated, calm their troubled hearts and bring your peace to steady their minds.

Refresh them with your presence, strengthen them with your joy, and speak your words of love to them. As they hear your voice, may they feel treasured by your gentle words, and be able to rest in your lavish love. Amen.

If you identify with this prayer, please share your thoughts.

Prayers Appreciated

thank you for your prayers

Today I experienced a significant drop in page rank for my site Lifestyle Prayers.

I have been listed in the 3rd or 4th place on page 1 of the Google Search results for many months, and I have been enjoying the results. However, today it appears that Google has done some reorganizing and placed my site on page 5 with my site listed towards the bottom of the page.

So, I am not sure what this means, but I would appreciate your prayers.

I continue to trust God in all of my circumstances, including the reasons for starting this particular prayer site.

Thank you for praying for me, and providing any constructive feedback.

Blessings to all of you, as my brothers and sister in Christ.

Artist Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for every artist who practices art, or who is skilled in a particular artistic expression.

May you provide each artist with the appropriate venues for their art to be seen, appreciated, and sold. Allow them the ability to connect with other artists who will support them, provide feedback for their development, and help them to establish a network of connections with interested buyers.

As they step out in faith, trusting in You, assist them with the necessary resources.  Show them where to find the space to do their works of art, how to obtain the appropriate supplies, and where to find the funds to establish themselves as skilled artists.

Give them your wisdom to manage their time wisely, the confidence to thrive in their creativity, and the willingness to learn, grow, and mentor others. May your encouragement direct their steps, your strength enable them to move forward, and your inspiration guide them in all that you desire to show them.

Thank you for equipping and releasing every artist who looks to you as their Heavenly Father. You are so proud of each one, as you marvel at the wonderful works of every individual expression. To you be the glory forever, and ever. Amen.

Calming Prayer

Take time to slow down, and bring things to gradual stop. Breathe in the goodness of God, and look for Jesus of Nazareth. You know His presence, for He’s always been with you. Be still and wait for Him. As you seek Him, leave your worry behind. If you come being afraid, then receive His perfect love. For He offers you His peace to calm any storm and His quietness to hush any raging seas.

If you’ve come to see Him, then He’s expecting you. If you’ve come to hear His voice, then take time to listen. You are in a safe and secure place. He is your protector and provider, and no harm will come your way. He is your rear guard, and you can share whatever is on your heart with Him.

This is a place designed by Him as a place of rest and refuge for your soul. You hide yourself here in Jesus, for He is your solid Rock and your sure foundation. You can breathe and rest here. If you are thirsty, you can ask Him for His living water. If you are tired, you can take a nap under His watchful care, and He will take care of you.

So, spend as much time here as you like. Enjoy His presence. Rest in His love. Remain secure in His peace, and be comforted by the richness of His grace.

You can return to this place at any time, and He will be there waiting for you. So, rest, remain and abide in His love. For Jesus is your life, He offers you His hope, and He will sustain you by His strength, as you follow Him wherever He leads you. Amen.
