Lights Alone
Those Living Alone


I ask for prayer for those of us who live alone and are suddenly faced with a situation, chronic illness, accidents, disease or any dis-orders or loss that limit or seclude us more than we would choose.

Once we were free and strong, helping others, now we pray for someone special to rediscover us, that we may share the things that in their most simple form have become ever more beautiful.

We ask that you do not forget us. We still "are" .

Remember us at bedtime, when you say goodnight to another, that we may feel your prescence.

Lift up our Animal Children for blessings, as they give so freely of love and devotion, and pray that we may run with them again.

Hold our hand within your heart as you might hold a beloved, and pray that we may again one day, find our hands clasped with another.

Hey everybody especially Charlotte and Kris!

I'm reallyglad to hear your mom finally came home Kris, I can only imagine how you feel right now. Sorry I haven't been here much lately, I been bringing a lot home from work these past few days and that has kept me busy.
One thing, the 14th would have been dad's 79th birthday, and labor day would have been mom's 76th. This has been on my mind a lot lately but I know they are both in a better place now, and that makes me feel better.

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU

Hi Phillip! It had not visited the prayere circle since Friday and it was good to come on and see your post! :O) Phillip, I'm sure you won't stop missing your parents but I promise you the "pain of missing" them will diminish. God will replace any momentary sadness or ache that may try to creep in and He will replace those feelings with memorable joy when they come to mind. Just give it time. Above all else, when those times come just talk "out loud" to God about what you're feeling. I know that might seem odd to some (smile). But I'm serious! HA HA I live alone so I have plenty of privacy and space to just talk to God as if He were right in my presence. And you know what? There is such a comfort I feel in my soul when I relate to Him because I do it with confidence knowing that He hears me. EVEN IN THE MIDST of some seemingly quietness, I know He's there because I have blessings and the privilege of recalling what He's already done to draw on as encouragement of the fact that He hears.

So, Phillip, my brother, rest assured that you are not alone. And God is never going to get tired of your missing your parents. And God is NEVER going to get tired of you bringing anything to Him for that matter, because he is not like us here on this earth who can at times lack a lot of tolerance. As a matter of fact, God longs for you to go running to Him about everything. And another key factor, he places "friends" around to encourage, regardless of the distance (smile). We as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ are "the church"...it's not just a building...it's a body of believers. Believers of what? Believers of Christ, and as believers we do the things that He has instructed us to do. One of those things being, to bear each other's burden.

So, be blessed Phillip! And I pray you have a very VERY good work week!

Love,
Charlotte

Kris,

I'm glad to hear that your mother is getting stronger and stronger by the day! I know you said her voice sounds like her old self, but by faith I believing that to be manifested in her body, too. So, we'll keep believing and keep holding on to God to complete the work. And it is a blessing that she has family there with her right now.

It's also good to hear that the swelling has started to diminish in your eye. For you too, we're just going to keep holding on to our faith in God to take care of you completely. Let God have complete control of everything Kris, because "yes" God uses everything to get the glory in our lives, if we yield those things to Him.

Your cat sounds soooo amusing. I was just sitting laughing to myself as I pictured the images of your cat as you told your story. She sounds like such a little company keeper; so adoring.

Well, I pray you have a good week!

Love,
Charlotte

Lord,

I thank you for my friends, Phillip and Kris here in this prayer circle. And I thank you for the others that I will gain here as well. Lord, Your Word says that the world will know us by the love that we show for one another. Let us never be so busy, so wrapped up in ourselves that we miss reaching out to someone who is hurting or just may need an encouraging word. Let us always be mindful to give to others the very thing that we search for ourselves. Show us how to reach out to that person, for Lord we know that everyone does not need the same things. And we know that we cannot reach everyone in the same way. So, Lord help us to be sensitive to Your Spirit in directing us in what to say or what not to say.

Lord, continue to work in the lives of every person that visits this prayer circle, whether they post here or not. As they read a response, or read a prayer, Lord, I ask that you let the words minister what is needed in their own lives. Give them Lord to know the power of Your love for themselves. Lord, Your Word, the Bible, states You said - if I (Jesus) be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me. So, Lord, we exalt Your grace and Your goodness here in this prayer circle so that every person will look to You as their source of hope and strength. Lord, My savior, My confidant, My best friend, My heart, My source of strength, My source of hope, let "Your truth" rule and have authority in our lives.

In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Hey Kris and Charlotte!
I'm sorry I have been so sporadic about being here. Work is getting a little hectic and I've been bringing home stuff to do here. Kris, you kitten sounds like a riot. My cat is 12 yrs old and still acts like that. They are a good judge of character and it's obvios she likes you a bunch!
It's good to see you feeling good and enjoying things. And Charlotte thank you again for all your kind words,a nd both of you for your prayers. Oh yeah Kris, I'm delighted to hear your mom has come home. I can only imagine how you fell right now. My mom would have been 76 Labor day, and I miss her and dad both every day.


God bless you all

Lord,

Thank you again for another day. Thank you for Phillip. Lord, thank you for what you're doing in his life and the knowledge and wisdom that you give him to accomplish what he needs to do on his job and every day. Lord, we do ask for Your mercy and grace in his work situation. Lord, continue to give him the strength he needs to do his work, but also give him grace and rest from having an "over" abundance of work to do. Lord, let his work not interfere with his home life or other things that he needs to do. Let him have favor Lord with those who are in authority on his job. Lord, we thank You and believe You to work in Phillip's behalf as he needs.

Lord, continue to work in the lives of every person that visits this prayer circle. Lord, and as You work, let them recognize the hand that You have in their lives, and give them the grace to YIELD to Your direction for them.

In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Lord, this day I ask You personally for Your continued direction in every aspect of my life. Help me Lord to continue in a state of "resting" in You as I wait on You to fulfill all of my needs. And I ask You also do this in the lives of others here.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen

I understand what it is like to feel alone. Since my mother's passing, I have had to carry around this emptiness, and nothing I do seems to fill the void. I say my prayers every day, and pray that answers will come to me. I try to offer help to others by volunteering in my community, as I believe that if we touch even one life, then our lives are still purposeful. I also read a great deal, about spirituality and health, and try to do good things for myself. In this way, both through my efforts to reach out to others, and my attempt to take care of myself, I hope to find the healing that I know is possible for all of us. Hope this is helpful. May God's love be with you.

CatLyn & Freema,

I join Kris in welcoming you. :o) It's good to read your posts. You both have the special keys to dealing with personal circumstances...Catlyn -to pray for others, and Freema - to do for others. Sometimes it's easier for us to say those things than to actually do that at times isn't it? But we know that's why we have God to strengthen us in our own personal circumstances. What better way to alleviate some of our mental burdens than to reach out to others each in prayer or direct contact by helping them in whatever way we can. I pray that I always remember and hold to these keys as you both have brought up because it's part of what helps keep us from just completely falling apart, so to speak. But above all else if we can just keep in mind to hold on to truths in God's Word..."No temptation (or problem) has come upon us that is uncommon to all of mankind but our God who is always there for us will give us a way out of that temptation (or problem)." I Cor. 10:13 And we have to keep in mind that we may not understand why we have to endure certain things to acquire God's best are His likeness in us, but we have to trust and be like Paul (read II Cor. 12:9-10). Lean on God but also lean on your fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord that God puts among you, whether from a distance or there locally. No, I'm sure life isn't grand everyday - so reach out to the mercy God extends in whatever way grants.

Blessings to you both and all who reads! :o)

Love,
Charlotte

Kris,

My hope - God bless you! In whatever way you need - God bless you! Reading your post regarding your reply to your brother's wondering about you accepting your life as it is, you have the attitude you should have. We don't always know why but we should be like the 3 Hebrew boys of years ago who were going to be thrown into a fiery furnace because they would not worship the king's idol. They said and BELEIVED that God COULD save them from the fire but if God CHOSE not too, they would not fall back on their devotion to God by worshiping any idol. And Kris, that's what you should hold fast to all the days God gives you, that He has the ability and all the power in His hands to deliver you. But regardless of the outcome - HE is Your Lord & he loves you SO, SO much. And you don't have to justify His love for You to anyone.

God bless you and keep You in His peace!

Love,
Charlotte

A Thought for the Day --

When God wants to make a mushroom, hedoes it overnight, but when he wants to make a giant oak, he takes hundred years. Great souls are grown through struggles and storms and seasons of suffering. Be patient with the process.

From the book - The Purpose Driven Life
Chapter 28 - It Takes Time

IN YOUR IMAGE

Sometimes I struggle...
With my purpose for being here
Iíd much rather be hidden
By Your awesome being

Sometimes I imagine...
Your arms like a staircase -
I crawl up -
And You clutch me there

But I am aware...I canít stay there
For Youíve given me
An awesome opportunity

Where in this world are children allowed
To be children and yet...
Carry the responsibility of an adult?
(I have the best of both worlds)

You desire to use me
In a way that is yet unclear to me
Though I see there are changes to make
Before I am there

From glory to glory...
Day by day
Month by month
Year by year
I see that I am...
Slowly transforming
