The Lord is ready and willing to listen. When you pray, just speak to Him as you do a good friend. He will answer you. He is faithful and your faith will increase as you seek Him. The scripture here is King James.
Dear Lord, Thank you for always being here with us to minister to our needs, whenever we are going through trials. We lean on your Word that promises that as we do the things you say, your peace will take over and help us through. We choose to rejoice in all circumstances and wait on you, we know the solutions are close and you have everything under control. Build our faith and keep us safe. In Jesus name, Amen
Philipians 4:4Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Now that I have my "smart oven" (we haven't had an oven for awhile), I'm going to give this recipe a try. I have seen several that use black beans in baked goods and I'm really curious. I'll let you know next week how it turns out! If you try them, let me know what you think.
Healthy Brownies

15 oz. can black beans (rinsed and drained) or 1.5 cups cooked beans
1.5 cups date paste
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp Ground Flax seeds
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa or cacao powder
3/4 oats ground into flour
1 cup non-dairy vegan chocolate chips* (optional)
1/2 cup finely chopped unsalted pistachios (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Place beans and date paste and almond milk in a food processor fitted with the "S" bl@de and process until smooth. Add the flax seeds, extracts, baking powder and soda and cocoa powder and process again. Add ground oats and process very briefly, just until combined. Pour batter into a 9 x 9 square silicone baking pan. Sprinkle with nuts and or chocolate chips, if using and gently press the toppings down with the palm of your hand. Bake for 30-35 minutes until middle does not jiggle and toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool before cutting. I prefer to serve these chilled with a nice cold glass of homemade vanilla almond milk.
