Paul's Prayer

Good morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped outside this morning, once again the portion of the visible moon was shining brightly and the sky was clear. Our large oak trees do not seem to be shedding acorns as fast as they were, but the squirrels have been busy nipping off branches for a new nest, I picked up a double hand full yesterday in the same spot where i picked up two days ago. They must be building a condo!

Because of the heat and the water in the street gutters drying up, we have been having a lot of birds come to the little pot of water I keep there for them and the squirrels to drink. Even the feral cat that hangs around, comes once in a while to drink. This is almost the second week of Oct. and we had a temp. of 91 yesterday!! There is a very little breeze today, so perhaps we won't notice the heat so much. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Colossians 1:9-12

So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants you to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better.

We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God's holy people, who live in the light.

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

Love and hugs,
