A Daily Prayer

Good Chilly , damp morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the overcast day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I did see the sun for awhile yesterday, so perhaps we will today, also.

On my street yesterday, I saw another duck brood. Mama and her maybe dozen babies were coming down the street, but as I approached my house, I noticed a Coopers hawk perched on top of a streetlight pole, surveying the neighborhood. Beware, Mama duck and babies! Could this be why the dead squirrel I saw in our driveway disappeared?? Some mysteries must remain unsolved.

This is a prayer that I pray for myself daily, that was printed for a Prayer service that we had at our church some time ago.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I honor You as my Lord. I acknowledge that You are always present with me. You are the only all powerful and only wise God. You are kind and loving in all Your ways. I love you and I thank you that I am united with Jesus and spiritually alive in Him.

I thank you for the life that I have in Christ, and I ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may live my life free from sin. You are the Vine, and I am the branch, apart from You I can do nothing. I take my stand against Satan and command all his evil spirits to depart from me. I ask these things in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
