Praying Scripture

A friend asked me to pray for her today. Something that has been stirring on my heart lately is that when someone asks me to pray for them I want to truly pray for them. Lift them up. Be burdened for them. Humble myself and get on my face for them. Intercede on their behalf. So I think, being the ADD person that I am, that the best way I can pray for her is through scripture! It is "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16) so why not lift her up with the beautiful Spirit filled Word!?? So A... know you are on my heart and that there is a time for everything (Ecc. 3), that Jesus is in control (Jer. 29:11) and that He is GOOD in all things (John 10:11).

"Lead me to the rock that is higher than I..." -Psalm 61:2

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" -Matthew 6:25-27

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." -John 14:27

"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you." -2 Thess. 3:16

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." -Psalm 55:22

"Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up." -Prov. 12:25

"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff  they comfort me." 
-Psalm 23:4

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." -Phil. 4:6-7

God is good... all the time. All the time... my God is GOOD!!
