Effective 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! After Saturday's turbulent weather, and Sunday's perfect sun and warm up, today looks like more of the same. Cool but sunny for baseball's opening day.However, it doesn't matter what the weather is for the Rays, since their field is indoors!

The rain had quit long enough Saturday for Brian to take me to Red Lobster for the Lobsterfest.  I went for the Lobster lovers dream and got a huge plate full of lobster, pasta with shrimp and broccoli. I really enjoy the cheese biscuits that they have. Of course, I brought most of my meal home, since I had already had the lobster bisque and cole slaw. But I enjoyed it yesterday, after church!

I took a drive to the park and saw that the water was up quite high in the canal after the downpour we had Saturday.. Lots of people were out and the herons and ibis were also enjoying the feasts and the good weather. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Matthew 7:7-11

Keep on asking, and you will be given what
you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find.
Keep  on knocking, and the door will be opened.
For everyone who who asks, receives. Everyone
who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to
everyone who knocks. You parents---if your children
ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone
instead? Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them
a snake? Of course not! If you sinful people know how
go give good gifts to your children, how much more
will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

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

Love and hugs,
