Teaching about 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! Water is still dripping off the roof, but the sun is shining, and big, puffy white clouds are slowly moving across the sky. We had nearly an all day rain yesterday, with breaks here and there.

During one of the breaks, I went shopping again, for milk, etc. some things I was low on.
I had washed sheets early and got them taken care of, and just enjoyed the lazy reading day. While I was in the garage, I glanced out the window, and saw the brown bunny hopping across the yard, heading for the next door backyard. Cute! I had several phone calls and a visit from a man wanting to schedule an energy audit, which I do not need. He was so warm, he had sweat pouring down his face, and stood right under the porch gutter, so he got dripped on. Well, at least, he got cooled down.

I drove over to the wet, park after I finished shopping, even though it was late. But I saw a beautiful great blue heron in the canal. I haven't seen one of those in a long time! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Matthew 6:7-13

When you pray, don't babble on and on as people
of other religions do. They think their prayers are
answered only by repeating their words again and again.
Don't be like them, because your Father knows exactly
what you need even before you ask him!
Pray like this:

Our Father in heaven,
may your name be honored.
May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done here on earth,
just as it is in heaven.
Give us our food for today,
And forgive us our sins,
just as we have forgiven those who
have sinned against us.
And don't let us yield to temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.

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

Love and hugs,
