A Prayer

Take a moment to relax your mind and humble your heart to focus on God. Allow God, to be the only person on your mind, while you read this prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this prayer. Friends that pray together, stay together. Dear Lord, I thank You for this day. I thank You for my being able to see and to hear today. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day tomorrow with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day, and clear my mind, so that I can hear from You. Please broaden my mind, so that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. And, when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example - to slipaway and find a quiet place to pray.  I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me, so that I may be a blessing to others.  Keep me strong that I may help the weak.  Keep me uplifted that I may havewords of encouragement for others.  I pray for those who are lost and can't find their way. I  pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately.  I pray for those who will click off this entry in my journal without sharing it with others. I pray for those who don't believe.I believe that God changes people and God changes things.  I pray for all my family, friends on the internet and people reading this entry. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes and that all their needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly This is my prayer. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

 

Thanks for your prayers thought I'd send one your way too.
