Five Minute Friday – A Heavenward View

Dear one, this is my prayer for you in your affliction
While you undergo trials and tribulation
Faith will rise
Hope will not be extinguished
        But the Spirit will fan the flames
                From the embers, your hope in the Lord will burn hot
Trust in the Lord will increase
Unquenchable will be your desire for God’s Word
Praise and thanksgiving will flow from your lips
Peace of God will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus
Joy will fill your soul
You will pray without ceasing,
Confident that God hears your cries
He sees your affliction and He cares
Your face will reflect the glory of the Lord
        Time spent with Him
Remember…you are a son or daughter of the King of kings
        And Lord of lords
Your focus will be heavenward, not inward
Confident that your deliverance will come from the Lord
Certain that the Lord is walking with you in your trial
        He is well able to bring you through this tribulation
The Lord is in the fire with you
        Refining your faith as pure gold
May you not loose heart or hope or faith
        May your trust in the Lord never waver

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
