My Morning Prayer

Happy November and Good Morning, dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the coolish day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Well, many people have been wishing for cool weather and here it is! The air is dryer and the breeze very cool, so it is a nice day

While driving to church yesterday, a sad looking woodstork crossed the street in front of me headed toward Lynch Lake. I don't know why they always look so depressed, maybe it is the way their heads are always hanging down, but I hope something cheers them up. Lots of people were in the park yesterday, enjoying picnics, walking their dogs and just walking and sitting enjoying the beauty God has made. God is good!

As I read this prayer this morning, (as i do every morning) it took on new meaning after a difficult evening with Louis as he sinks deeper into this evil Alzheimers disease.

My Morning Prayer

"Oh, God, for another day, for another morning,
for another hour for another minute, for another chance to live and serve Thee, I am truly grateful."

Do thou this day free me
from all fear of the future
from all bitterness toward anyone.
from all cowardice in face of danger
from all laziness in face of work,
from all failure before opportunity
from all weakness when Thy power is
at hand.

But fill me
with Love that knows no barrier
with Sympathy that reaches all
with Courage that cannot be shaken
with Faith strong enough for darkness.
With Strength sufficient for my tasks
with Loyalty to Thy Kingdom Goal,
with Power to lift me to Thee.

Be Thou with me for another day and use me as Thou wilt for Christ's sake, I pray.

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

Love and hugs,
