A Prayer For You

Abba, Father, King of my life, hear my prayer in the precious name of Jesus. You have created each of us in Your image. How beautiful! You eternally love each one of Your creation. How awesome!

Abba, help us grow to be more loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled. We give You the control of our words, actions, and thoughts. Make us aware of Your constant presence.

Father, give us the supernatural ability to love others more than ourselves. Keep us humble!

Let Your all-surpassing love shine through us! Give us the ability to ignore other people’s faults, knowing that we all have logs in our own eyes. Imbue us with a strong sense of discernment.

Let Your will be lived out in our daily activities and when this day is complete give us perfect rest.

Make it so!

Blessings to you and yours!

675-x-975-The-15-Minutes-That-Change-Your-MarriageRay and I are talkers.  We talk about everything.  It’s one of the aspects of our marriage that has kept us together for more than 40 years.  Alicia, over at Your Vibrant Family suggests this 15-minute habit, used daily, is extremely important to your connection as a couple.

 

 

There are so many excellent bloggers on the internet.  I am often convicted by their words and learn so much from them.  What a blessing they are.

Blessings to you and yours!
