Need to figure out what to have for dinner...
And Ruth's aunt and son need Your attention, Lord. Comfort Mid who has lost loved ones...
Better put in a load of laundry...
And heal the brokenhearted among us, Lord. Those afraid to love, afraid to hurt again. Raise up encouragers, comforters in Your army...
Forgot to pay that utility bill!
Bring friends to the friendless, and courage to those weak of heart. It is hard to live in this world, Lord. We so long for our heavenly home.
Gotta remember to make that doctor's appointment.
I pray that my husband will find favor in the eyes of his employers. This is a rough economy and at his age it would be very difficult to find another job. I pray this for our children as well.
Need to make that haircut appointment too.
I thank You for our children and their husbands, truly treasures from Your hand. I ask for Your wisdom and blessing on each one. May each draw ever closer to Your loving heart. I place each of our grandchildren in Your arms. Wrap them in Your love, protect with Your care, and lead them each to Your salvation. I thank you for the blessing of each one You have given us—gifts from Your hand.
For the lost, the lonely, the discouraged, the hopeless, those who do not know You, my Father, I ask that even now Your Holy Spirit would be tenderly speaking to each heart drawing them, ever drawing them, into Your loving arms, Your place of tender refuge. What a hard world this can be, Jesus, and so many are hungry, longing for something more in their lives, and don't know where to turn. Shine Your light of love leading the way to You. Let me be worthy to be one of Your candles.
I have to write...
”Shh! Enough already! Can't you see I'm praying here?”
