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! I saw sunshine earlier, now it is overcast, but cooler! Maybe just as preview of fall? The temp is supposed to climb to 90 today, but right now it is only 75. so that feels really good!

After doing some chores that I had been putting off, including my ironing, I felt like rewarding myself with a trip to Krispy Kreme. I went to the drive-thru, which had a line clear out into the street, and had to wait about ten minutes for my turn. Meantime, some guys were setting up a tent and speakers in the driveway, and started playing music, which was pleasant. I finally ordered one glazed and one pumpkin cheesecake do nuts. When I got home I made a cup of tea and had the glazed for afternoon tea!

After that, I drove to the Park and saw that the water had receded just a bit, but is still very high. An egret was patiently waiting, some bird watchers were standing in the street, looking up through binocs, and very few people were there.

Well, I watched the Rays sweep the Yankees last night and saw the moving tribute for Mariano Rivera, in front of over 48 thousand people. It was a good game and a good ending. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-

When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall
to my knees, and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything
in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited
resources, he will give you mighty inner strength through his
Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at
home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down
deep into the soil of God's marvelous love.
And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people
should , how wide , how long, how high, and how deep his love
really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so
great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with
the fullness of life and power that comes from God

Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us He is
able to accomplish infinitely more than we would dare to ask or hope.
May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever
and ever through endless ages.

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

Love and hugs,
