Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.  - Philippians 1:18-19

Dear Jesus, 

Sometimes it seems that the subliminal message underlying my life is, "Trouble can rise up and strike at any moment."  It's good to know that you listen to the prayers that others pray for me.  Somehow you complete the holy triangle between them, you, and me by answering their prayers and blessing me with protection and deliverance.  Help me to live in the same optimism that Paul did, without worrying about what is challenging me.  You promise to turn everything out for my good.  I also know friends and family struggling through problems that make them feel hopeless at times, too.  Hear my prayers for them and use your Holy Spirit and your angels to deliver them in this life and for the next. 

Amen
