CHALLENGE TAKEN from the pdf mentioned back here
Suggestion for today from there:
Day 9: Pray for children, in the family, at church, that they will receive guidance, love and wisdom to make godly choices in their life.
Pray for children who have been hurt and abused that God use you and me to be part of their lives to show them what family is really about.
Ask God to help place children who are being adopted into loving healthy Christian homes, so more people will be exposed to His truth and love.
Chapter 5 in Beth Moore's "Praying God's Word" is on "Overcoming the Insecurity of Feeling Unloved" and the next Chapter is "Overcoming Feelings of Rejection". I was not sure which one to share that would go well with the challenge for today. I was led to choose the "insecurity".
"All of us have insecurities... even the most outwardly confident people we know." Beth Moore
Proverbs 19:22 "What a person desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar." (NIV)
Here are some prayers that Beth shares from God's Word for overcoming insecurity of feeling unloved:
Lord God, help me trust in Your unfailing love; cause my heart to rejoice in Your salvation. Help me to sing to You, Lord, for You have been good to me! (Psalm 13:5-6)
I call on You, O God, for You will answer me, give ear to me and hear my prayer. Show the wonder of Your great love, You who save by Your right hand those who take refuge in You from their foes. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings. Ps.17:6-8
O God, though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet Your unfailing love for me will not be shaken nor Your covenant of peace be removed. You are the Lord who has compassion on me. (Isaiah 54:10) Thank You, God.
How I thank You, God, that You will heal my waywardness. You love me freely. (Hosea 14:4)
My faithful God, help me to call this to mind and therefore always have hope: Because of Your great love, I am not consumed, for Your compassions never fail. They are new toward me every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I will say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him." (Lamentations 3:22-24)
