I have a dear friend who God used today. Thank You God for speaking through this dear friend. Now I’ll Stop, Breathe, Listen, and Wait … and take out my obsession with ‘me’.
Sometimes inspiration and insight come from reading different versions of the Bible.
Matthew 6:8 New International Version
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Matthew 6:8-13 The Message
“The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this:
Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 New International Version
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 International Children’s Bible
Always be happy. Never stop praying. Give thanks whatever happens. That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus.
