Firstly, I just want to thank you for everything that you have done, what you are presently doing and what you are going to do in my life.
Many times I complain even when I know I shouldn’t. I doubt your abilities and I limit you with my own words and thoughts, and for that Father I come before you to ask for forgiveness.
Sigh, God, you see all that is going on and sometimes it feel like nothing is happening. Most times I want to give up, I want to yell or cry. But then I have to remember that you said you have a plan for me, to give me a future and an end.
It’s frustrating sometimes I won’t lie but I know that you will work everything out for my good.
Thank you for restoring peace in my family.
Mold me o Lord into your humble servant. When people see me let them see Christ. Create in me a clean Heart God. Help me to love others like you’ve loved me. Help me to love you more than anything. Because you must increase and I must decrease. Let everything that I do please you. Let me not put you or myself to shame. It is not easy and I cannot do it on my own. I need you each and everyday to get by. Help me to strain my mouth God because I know I be too quick to talk sometimes.
Please protect all my loved ones. All my sisters and brothers in Christ and even those who don’t know you. Bring all your children back home. And I pray everyone encounters you in a different way like never before.
Thank you Jesus.

I’m going to be starting a new series on the blog titled “Dear God”s
Basically, a couple of contributors are going to be sharing heartfelt letters written to God here.
Why are we doing this?
There is something about our mindset on prayer. A lot of people feel like if you’re going to pray to God, you have to obey a lot of protocol, and use a lot of very official and formal words. We approach prayer and talking to God like we’re speaking to our President instead of to our best friend. But God really is our Friend. He’s our loving Father and so He wants us to speak to Him in that accord.
When you write letters to God, it personalizes everything. Now you’re writing to your Loving Father, to your Best Friend. The words flow out. Sometimes you find that you cannot stop writing.
This is the point of the Dear God series.
Because we are tired of prayers that are only “Forgive me God, I ask you for *insert your latest want here* God, Thank you God.
We we want to go from that to “Dear God, I’ve had an awesome day today. I even met a new friend today, I hope she turns out to be a great person… (and it goes on)
We want to have a REAL conversation. A MEANINGFUL conversation. An INSIGHTFUL conversation with our Father.
It is my prayer that God uses this to teach us how to communicate effectively with Him in Jesus name, Amen!
