"Heavenly Father, I humbly come to You asking that You take my old, heavy garments of despair and heaviness. Make me new today. Give me a garment of praise so that I can be a display of Your glory and splendor. In Jesus' Name. Amen."~ from devotional Today's Word "Garment of Praise" click to receive or read others.
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

Bless all his skills, O LORD, and be pleased with the work of his hands. -Deuteronomy 33:11Lord, You are the author of all the skills of man. You are the God of all the earth, and of the highest heavens. Your gaze takes in the universe, and yet You know each one of our thoughts.
I bring our communities & government leaders before you right now, and ask that You would be pleased with the work of their hands. Bless their skills Lord and under-gird them as they seek to lead others. Bring to their minds what they have learned, and cause them to act decisively in the face of today’s challenges.
Anoint them in the work you have called them to, and give them wisdom to overcome every obstacle. Honor the hope Lord, of those who trust in our government leaders, and look to them for leadership. In Jesus name, amen. ~ Prayer Central Fetch a Prayer

"...Sometimes there is nothing left for us to do except praise God! While we may sometimes dream of doing great things for God and his Kingdom, the dreams aren't as big as God's plans. While we may be richly talented, influential, powerful, or rich, these are merely tools in God's hands, not symbols of our sufficiency. "God is able" has to be one of the best and most accurate phrases in the Bible. But this time, it's said about his work in you in me. He is able to do much more than we imagine to work through and in us. What can we say to that? Hallelujah!"
"We have far greater power than we often realize. That incredible power is at work within us (see Ephesians 1:18-19). This promise of power, however, is tied to two opportunities God gives us daily. First, it is based on actively asking for God to do great things based upon a holy charged imagination. Second, it is based on our living to bring God glory. So let's ask, imagine, and give God glory; then let's praise him for doing far greater things than what we ask or even imagine!"
