God is Able.

No wisdom, No understanding, No counsel can avail against the Lord. Proverbs 21:30

Even though the doctors have told you there is no hope, cure or remedy.
God is able.

For that marriage that is broken and betrayed by deceit and hurt.
God is able.

For that anxiety that is at such a high level you feel like you can’t breathe sometimes.
God is able.

For that miracle you have been praying about for months or even years.
God is able.

For that relationship that seems like there is no possible solution.
God is able.

When I was in college a mentor taught me about ‘breath prayers’. (They might have a fancier name than that, but that’s what I call them.) Breath prayers are just a short sentence you repeat under your breath all throughout the day.

Sometimes I will pull a phrase from my quiet time the morning or perhaps a quote from another inspiration. Nothing long or complicated. The key is to commit to believe that phrase for one day (or however long you would like) and say it under your breath as often as you feel like it or remember.

So today, mine will be: God is able.

Feel free to use that one or come up with something that resonates more with your situation. I think you might be surprised at how focused you feel. It can truly be an act of worship, walk in that today.

    Love this. A lot.

    Lately my "breath prayer" has been from Matthew 10:29-31. (the Message version)

    29 "What's the price of a pet canary? Some loose change, right? And God cares what happens to it even more than you do. 30 He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail – even numbering the hairs on your head! 31 So don't be intimidated by all this bully talk. You're worth more than a million canaries.

    "worth more than a million canaries."
