Having a cup of joe with God ......
I recieved this today and felt I needed to share it with anyone who stops to take a peek into my life . We should be really TALKING TO GOD not just praying for a few moments on our knees but really have a good long talk with him . I talk to Him daily just like I talk to my mom or my husband or my daughter...He is after all my #1 friend and confidant . My God and I have conversations over" a cup of Joe" im not a coffee drinker i just use that scenerio since most can relte to it ! Take time to "have a cup of joe with God today" you will truly be rewarded for it and It will make HIm happy .
TAKE TIME TO BREATHE DEEPLY!!!
This email is from Rosemary Dupras, whose daughter is on Gov. Palin's staff. Regardless of your political persuasion, these words are straight from scripture and can be prayed over anyone or any situation, of course Rosanne and Rosemary are asking for your intercession for Gov. Sarah Palin according to Psalms 27.
Sarah Palin is a born-again, Spirit-filled Godly person who said 'yes' when asked recently to serve her country. Since then, Gov. Palin asked my daughter Rosanne, who is part of her staff in Anchorage, for prayer, and so over the weekend Rosanne and I put together the attached 'Psalm for Sarah for 66.' It's intercessory prayer using Psalm 27 for the 66 days between the date of Sarah's accepting McCain's offer and election day, Nov. 4; it's not about who wins the election or about politics or your voting choice.
We've sent it to a number of Christians across the county so would you also pray for Gov. Palin in this Esther-like time of her life? You might also pass it along or copy any one who might pray. We truly hope this request is not offensive to anyone and that everyone who prays this will be blessed.
A Psalm for Sarah for 66 Days:
Sixty-six Days of Intercession for Gov. Sarah Palin according to Psalm 27
Pray for Sarah, husband Todd, sons Track, baby Trig, daughters Bristol, Willow, Piper, from August 29 through November 4.
