Giving to Others is Like Giving to Yourself

Hi guys…… I had the best weekend as I attended a Jesus Explosion with some friends from my church. Just so you know I’m a Catholic and I’m what is known as a Charismatic Catholic and we love to praise Jesus as if we’re having a party, anyway what I wanted to share is, while there I saw my friend with a prayer book and she said that she tends to buy prayer books or blessed items to give as gifts to her family members for Christmas. She suddenly took out another prayer book and gave it to me. She said that this prayer book seems to bring amazing blessings to all she gives t to.

She had given one to her sister and her sister told her mother “my sister so cheap look what she gave me for Christmas, what is that?”. Yes the book is very thin, only about 31 pages. But her sister started going through some difficulties and couldn’t seem to get past it, so her mother said to her, “why don’t you do the prayers in the prayer book your sister gave you. It might help.” So she decided to start them and after doing a few of the prayers her difficult situation got solved and she came back to her mother and shouted,” OMG this book is the best, it’s the best gift ever!!” Of course she never said this to her sister.

Anyway, her mom told her what her sister said so she was fine with that, she just wanted to know that her sister’s issue was better. She also got a lot of feedback from others she had given the book to on how things changed for them or that suddenly everything was going well or they were getting blessings . I love prayer books that can work like that because Jesus just wants us to go to him with our problem and my friend indicated that there were 12 different versions of the book……(hmmm 12 versions?…12 Disciples? hmmmm????) Prayers of blessings, Prayers of Gratitude, Prayers of Renewal and more. I can’t see you guys face to face so I can’t give advice or help physically except via my blogs, but I can share at least some of the prayers in the book.

How it works is you read the reading then at the back of the book is a prayer you say and you do one every day. So I’m going to type out 2 readings with the prayer that you do after everyone, and place the book’s info so maybe if you’re interested in getting a copy yourself check Amazon. So here goes and all God’s blessing to you and yours:

  1. God, I thank you today for the many blessings that fill my life with little joys and big miracles. I’m in awe that you have seen fit to shower your kindness upon me and my loved ones, and never for a moment do I take for granted what you have done for me. I live each day in thankfulness and appreciation, even for the challenges you put before me, knowing that many blessings come to me in countless ways. Thank you, God, for continuing to bless me as you do

Prayer: Thank you, my Lord God, for all the blessings you have showered on my family and me. Please help us to share blessings with those who are hurting and are in need. I want to be a giver like your Son, Jesus, It’s in his wonderful name, I pray. Amen

2. Dear Lord, I know you don’t ask us to follow you just so we can experience your blessings, but I also know you are most likely to shower them upon us when we are walking in obedience and trusting that your ways are best. I don’t ever want to leave a single one of your blessings unclaimed, Lord! Show me the path you want me to take, and I will follow you through every bend and turn. Accept all that I offer to you, Lord, and all that I am. I stand ready to receive your outpouring of blessings I pray with a grateful heart. Amen

Prayer: Thank you, my Lord God, for all the blessings you have showered on my family and me. Please help us to share blessings with those who are hurting and are in need. I want to be a giver like your Son, Jesus, It’s in his wonderful name, I pray. Amen

So I’ve only placed two of the many readings and if you feel blessed by just those two because of whatever you’re going through then, go get the book and be able to do all the readings:. It’s called – Prayers of Blessings by Nancy Parker Brummett, Lain Ehmann and Marie D. Jones by Publicatons International , Ltd.

Go get your Sea of blessings, its just waiting for you and this is my gift to you just as it was my friends gift to me. God Bless and Jesus loves us all.

Hi, I'm a mother of four, one boy and three girls ranging in ages from 26yrs to 22yrs. I own my own business that I run with my husband and we have no pets. We've had a variety of pets from dogs, cats fish etc, but things go wrong when we have pets so we decided that we are not pet people. I'm a creative person and I love to learn and share what I learn. Watercolour painting is my great love. I dream of having my art appreciated and hung on the walls of homes, offices, churches, anywhere that people can view them and start up a conversation about them. So that's a little about me, come peruse more of my site and ENJOY!!!
