Sunday Prayer: Home

Sunday Prayer: Home

Dear Lord, Thank you so much for the roof over my head. Food in my fridge, and a family that loves me. Sometimes we take for granted the things that we have, and seek things that we think we need. Through Your love, you have shown us that we have everything that we need. I pray for those families who are going through hard times right now–emotionally, spirituality, financially. These problems of the world really have a way of weighting people down and bring down their spirits. I pray that You hold their hand during these hard times and guide them to better days....
Sunday Prayer: Faith

Sunday Prayer: Faith

  Dear Lord, I put all my faith into you. Roads maybe rocky at times, but I know that Your love for me with smooth everything out. It is with that faith that I know, that as a parent, we need to expect the unexpected. That any moment our lives could be turned upside down, or we can have several scares that will make even the most intimidating roller coaster seem like child’s play. Even through those times of uncertainties, you have helped see us through it. Thank you....
Sunday Prayer: Disappointments

Sunday Prayer: Disappointments

  Dear Lord, We know that every now and then, things will disappoint us.  We put our hopes into a particular item or event, only to feel short-changed. Help us remember that the only disappointment that we can feel is if we put too much stock in someone or something. No one  can disappoint us, unless we give them that power. Even with this knowledge Lord, You understand these things will still happen. Please grant us the knowledge and discerning eyes to help us see fact from fiction. Also, peace in our hearts to move on. Thank you. Amen....
Sunday Prayer: Struggles

Sunday Prayer: Struggles

  Dear Lord, We know we can come to you in our time of need, and during rough patches in our lives.  I want to thank you for that. Regardless of how bad it gets, or hard it is, we know that we can’t say we have lived, if we did not struggle every now and then. So Lord, even when we go through struggles and rough patches, it is through Your grace that we will work through them. It is through those rough patches that we know our faith is being tested.  Like Job, regardless of how bad it could get, we can still give you praise. We don’t have to like our current situation, but we know it’s temporary. So Lord thank you.  Thank you for being that solid rock that we call our foundation that we have built our families on. Thank you for being our beacon of light when the skies are dark and we feel hopeless. Thank you for reminding us of our purpose and that life will be full of trials. Amen.  ...
Sunday Prayer: Sacifice

Sunday Prayer: Sacifice

  Dear Lord, Why didn’t any one say that being a parent is about sacrifice?  I did understand my parents growing up, but now they makes perfect sense. Like them, I will give the shirt off my back just to keep my daughter warm while we walk three blocks to get home. I will carry her while her sleeping body can continue to rest and grow while I face the elements for us both. Regardless of what I will do for and how far I will go (to the ends of the earth to protect my girl), no one ever mentioned that it is something that I will WANT to do verses HAVE  to do. I can’t imagine the love you had for us when you sent down your only Son. So Lord, I want to thank you for always being the inspiring parent for us.  To teach us and show us leadership when we have doubt or question our methods. Thank you for showing us that there is more than one way to get our point across, and with different people, it will take different methods. Thank you for being the leader of patience, and showing us how we need to just give things time before we react. Just thank you....
Sunday Prayer: Taking Care of Yourself

Sunday Prayer: Taking Care of Yourself

Dear Lord, Thank you for opening my eyes.  I forgot who I was, and what my purpose was, but I have found me again. Under all the mommy shirts, jeans, and all day slippers, I have found my own look.  I not only take pride in taking care of myself, but I know Lord that taking care of myself is showing me that I care about Our relationship. It’s impossible to save others, if you cannot help yourself.  So Lord, January, I will be focused on me. Not to be selfish, but me in relation to my family, and basic needs. I cannot do the job you entrusted to me (motherhood, being a wife), if I do not take care of my personal well-being or happiness. Just this week alone, I noticed that my happiness is contagious. While I focus on health, style, and self-love, I know in the process I’m teaching my daughter how a woman and a mother takes care of her self and her basic needs. After all, she is my sheep, and I am her shepherd; I’m supposed to gently guide her to adulthood. Thank you....
