Hello, Father.
Thank you so much for your mercy in bringing my husband home safely yesterday, not letting him get heatstroke waiting on the side of the road for hours! Please give him the wisdom and understanding to know how to fix his truck so that we can go pick up my daughter from her camp tomorrow. And please let this last day at her camp do her good, Lord. Please make the right people talk to her about the right things, so we can begin to make progress towards getting her the help she needs. Thank you for your loving care, Father!

Matthew 11:25-30 ERV

Then Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth. I am thankful that you have hidden these things from those who are so wise and so smart. But you have shown them to people who are like little children.
Yes, Father, you did this because it’s what you really wanted to do.
“My Father has given me everything. No one knows the Son–only the Father knows the Son. And no one knows the Father–only the Son knows the Father. And the only people who will know about the Father are those the Son chooses to tell.
“Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.
Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest.
Yes, the teaching that I ask you to accept is easy. The load I give you to carry is light.”

Thank you so much, Jesus, for choosing to teach me about the Father. Thank you, Father, for sending Jesus to redeem us and make us able to come before you. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to live inside us, to be our Comforter and Teacher. Thank you for your Word, your Love, your Life! I lift each of my children up to you, Lord, and ask you to touch their lives. Bring each one into an intimate knowledge of you, so that they may experience true peace and contentment and joy. Father, please continue to prepare my husband and I for moving out of this house — at some point in the coming year or so — and please make a way for us to sell or give away the pet reptiles we have left at our house. Please let them go to good homes, Lord. Amen!
