A prayer on Sunday
I mentioned last week that I might try posting more of the prayers I've penned over the past few years in conjunction with various Bible studies I've completed. Sunday seems like a good day for that.
So today I'm sharing a prayer I wrote several years ago during a study of Psalm 23:
"Lord, "I praise You so much for Your goodness and care! You care for me as tenderly as a shepherd cares for his sheep. Over my lifetime, I have tasted and seen Your goodness, and I know that it will pursue me all the days of my life. I will not ever want for any good thing, for every good gift comes from Your hand. You have satisfied my longing soul and filled my hungry soul with Your goodness. "You work all things together for good in my life. I can trust that You will always continue to do that, because You never change. You are good, and You will always be good -- all the time. "I love You, Lord! "In Jesus' name, Amen."
As I prayed this during my quiet time this past week, I was so blessed to think about how God cares for us so tenderly and how He never changes. On Wednesday I was chatting with my faraway daughter and she brought up the fact that although things have turned upside down in our lives and in our world, the God whom we love and serve has not changed and never will change. Now that was encouraging!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
