Amazing Love

July 7, 2010

Abba…in the midst of so much heartache in this world…Your love is so amazing! You are awesome in so many ways. Please touch Your children. Surround them with Your presence. Fill them with Your Spirit and Your healing Shalom.

Abba…no matter this old world throws at us…we will stand! We will stand in Your love. We will stand in Your Spirit. We will stand in Your strength. We will trust You, Abba, that all is going according to YOUR plan…even when it does not seem to be going to ours. We will trust You for what we do not understand.

Abba…please touch Your servants…help us all to serve You in every area of our lives…according to the gifts You have given us. May we all be good stewards…especially in our support of one another. May we honor one another. May we stand in unity as a whole body and especially those You have called to leadership.

Protect Your leaders and their families, for our spiritual enemy likes to target them especially. Watch over them and their loved ones. Keep their children safe. Guard their hearts and minds. Place an extra thick hedge of protection around them.

We know the Angel of Adonai encamps around all those who love You. I thank You for that, Abba. What a comfort it is to know that You are here with us. Thank You, too, for Your indwelling Ruach who comforts us and leads in all truth. Thank You for Yeshua who is coming back for His bride! What a wedding feast that will be!

Abba, please restore those who need restoration. Please take away the pain of those who are hurting. Please bring Your healing Shalom to all who need it. Bring hearts back to one another. Turn parents and children toward one another. Turn siblings back to one another. Bring friends back together. Most importantly…bring our loved one’s hearts to YOU!

Abba, I don’t understand why You allow all of the things You do, but I trust You that You have a plan and a purpose for all that You allow and all that You cause. I am thankful that You are above all things and that there is no other option. There are no surprises to You…nothing that You do not allow or cause. You are sovereign. That is a comfort.

Please bless every one who reads this today. Bless their loved ones. Bless all those who will never even see this and who don’t even know that someone is praying for them. Especially bless Your persecuted believers. Bless Your persecuted leaders and their families who are suffering and dying for Your name’s sake. Hold them close to Your heart. Comfort them. Strengthen them. Help them to know Your presence as never before.

Abba, may we all love You with all of our hearts, all of our souls, all of our strengths and all of our minds. b’shem Yeshua

    Dear abisthoughtsongod:

    My name is Leora Trub and I am a student in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Program at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). I am conducting a study of the reasons that people blog and what benefits it brings, which at this point are still largely unexplored in research studies. I am therefore reaching out to you as a blogger who can help deepen our understanding of this phenomenon. I believe that your voice is an important one to be heard and hope you will enjoy participating in the study. I have developed an online questionnaire that asks about specific aspects of blogging as well as asking about feelings about yourself and others in your life. The survey is a mix of numerical scales and opportunities to reflect in an open-ended format about the role of blogging in your life, and how it has changed over time.

    You are eligible to participate if you are at least 21 years of age and have been maintaining an English-language personal blog for at least six months that you update or visit at least twice a week (on average). Your participation involves completing a confidential online questionnaire. The data will be downloaded onto a secure server to which only I have access. No identifying information, such as your names or address, will be collected. If you desire, you may choose not to share your blog name, in which case I will not access your blog for any reason after this point. If you do share your blog name, it will NOT be connected to your responses in the survey. Additionally, you will be given the opportunity to be identified by a code name in research reports and to have your blog description changed slightly so it cannot be identified.

    The survey takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and participation is completely voluntary. Three participants who complete the survey will be randomly selected by a lottery to receive a $75 cash prize.

    There are no foreseeable risks to participation in the study. Although some of the questions are personal in nature, participation in the study provides an opportunity to think about the role that your blog plays in your life.

    If you have any questions about this research, you can contact me at ltrub@gc.cuny.edu, or my advisors Dr. Arietta Slade at (212) 650-5658 or arietta.slade@gmail.com and Dr. Tracey Revenson at (212) 817-8709 or trevenson@gc.cuny.edu.

    The study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of the Graduate School of the City University of New York and meets of their guidelines as well as all state and federal guidelines for research with human participants. If you have any concerns about the project at any time, you can contact Ms. Kay Powell, Institutional Review Board at the Graduate School of the City University of New York (212) 817-7525 or kpowell@gc.cuny.edu.

    In order to participate in this study, I need to send you an invitation through survey monkey. If you are interested, please send an email to ltrub@gc.cuny.edu from the email address to which you would like the invitation sent. I hope that you will decide to participate and also that you will share it with others if you decide you would like to. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Leora Trub, M.A.
