I’ve heard/read about people writing out their prayers.
“How interesting.” I would think.
I’ve listed prayer requests.
I’ve made gratitude lists.
Many times I have written down the Word of God.
A written prayer is a first for me.
It is not deep or poetic,
but heart felt.
For this day, I thank Thee,
for the goodmess that you have prepared for me
and for the rough places we must go through.
May I be thanful for all of my day.
Grant the grace and the oil of your Spirit
to smoooth and ease the rough places.’
May your banner of love over me be seen
your compassion, your kindness, your peace.
There will be many times
I’ll cry out to you this day –
please attend to my cry
There will be times I should be asking
for your help and yet,
I’ll be so caught up in the circumstances;
I’ll try to handle it all on my own.
Please, know I still need your help.
Your people are hurting, today
in their minds,
in their hearts,
in their bodies
please minister to these needs.
Comfort the grieving ones,
the tired, the weary, the struggling
and the ones who are still learning to walk by faith.
May we not forget that with you
‘ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE’.
For my family –
my husband, my mom, my children near,
my grandshildren, wherever they are.
Those on my list – close to my heart.
Help them to make right choices before you.
Help them to desire to put you first in their hearts.
Help that seed of faith, so small at times,
to never be extinquished.
For my daily duties today
I ask for strength and
to do them as for you
even though they are the same things
done over and over
May I take comfort in the sameness
in the constantness
in your continual supply.
Help me look at the many things you provide
with a thankful heart
for as I think will be the way that I am this day.
My meditation scripture today.
Finally, 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.
