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! It was so dark and the thunder was booming and the lightning flashing through the blinds when it was my regular time to get up, that I just curled up and stayed in bed. It has been rainy all morning, and the water is dripping off the roof, with thunder still booming in the distance. No sunshine yet, but blue sky is visible every so often. Definitely and lazy day!

It took me until early afternoon, to get through with my laundry, sheets, etc., yesterday,
so I just stayed home , read and caught up with stuff on the computer. It was fun looking up Google street views of addresses here and at relatives homes in other states. That Google mobile really gets around! But 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 in 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 ever
dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and in
Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen.

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

Love and hugs,
