Good morning, Father.
Thank you for your enduring mercy and awesome encouragement. I simply do NOT understand how people can ever make it through this life without your diligent care!! Thank you for your abundant creation with all its varieties and textures and hidden mysteries. Thank you for the mysteries of your heart and your ways, always there for us to learn MORE about you! I am excited to be on this life-journey with you, My Lord, and I am amazed that eternity can be any more joyous than what I feel here on earth when you are so close to me. Thank you, precious Lord! 😀
Psalm 145:3-13 ERV
The LORD is great and deserves all our praise! No one can fully understand his greatness!
Each generation will praise you and tell the next generation about the great things you do.
Your majesty and glory are wonderful. I will tell about your miracles.
People will tell about the amazing things you do, and I will tell everyone how great you are.
They will talk about your goodness and sing about your justice.
The LORD is kind and merciful, patient and full of love.
The LORD is good to everyone. He shows his mercy to everything he made.
LORD, all you have made will give thanks to you. Your loyal followers will praise you.
They will tell how great your kingdom is. They will tell how great you are.
So others will learn about the mighty things you do, about the glory of your kingdom–how marvelous it is!
Your kingdom will never end, and you will rule forever. The LORD can be trusted in all that he says. He is loyal in all that he does.
Father, I give my heart, my mind, my body, my time, and even my husband and my children to you. I lift up my awesome friend in New York to you, and ask you to encourage her heart and show her your enduring love for her, personally. Let her walk in your peace, and sustain her spirit through any attacks by the enemy which she may be under. Set her free, Jesus, as only YOU can. Show her how much you are in control, and that all she need do is keep loving you. Amen!
And Lord, I lift up the rulers of our nation to you, and ask that you intervene to make our lives here peaceful. I ask you to touch the hearts and minds of those in authority at work over my husband, and ask you to make it peaceful and bountiful for him to work there. Please continue to teach me how to pray for strangers, Lord. My heart is willing. 🙂
