Super Sunday



It's time for Super Sunday! Peggy is still on her blogging hiatus, so I'm filling in for her. Let's all join up with just a song, a Scripture or a scene that is particularly touching to you to share and honor our Lord with on this day of Sabbath rest!!



Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,


I thank You for my being able to see


and to hear this morning.


I'm blessed because You are


a forgiving God and


an understanding God.



You have done so much for me


and You keep on blessing me.


Forgive me this day for everything


I have done, said or thought


that was not pleasing to you.


I ask now for Your forgiveness.



Please keep me safe


from all danger and harm.


Help me to start this day


with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.


Let me make the best of each and every day


to clear my mind so that I can hear from You..


Please broaden my mind


that I can accept all things.


Let me not whine and whimper


over things I have no control over.


And give me the best response


when I'm pushed beyond my limits.


I know that when I can't pray,


You listen to my heart.


Continue to use me to do Your will.


Continue to bless me that I may be


a blessing to others.


Keep me strong that I may help the weak...


Keep me uplifted that I may have


words of encouragement for others.


I pray for those that are lost


and can't find their way.


I pray for those that are misjudged


and misunderstood.


I pray for those who


don't know You intimately.



I pray for those that don't believe.



But I thank You that I believe


that God changes people and


God changes things..


I pray for all my sisters and brothers.


For each and every family member


in their households.


I pray for peace, love and joy


in their homes; that they are out of debt


and all their needs are met.


I pray that every eye that reads this


knows there is no problem, circumstance,


or situation greater than God.


Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.


I pray that these words be received


into the hearts of every eye that sees it


in Jesus' name. Amen!

That is a wonderful picture/scripture combination.

I am thankful for His protection. My 3 1/2 year old often says, "God is protecting us Mommy."

Have a wonderful Sunday my friend! I'll be back to this Meme soon. I usually have to create it on Saturday when I have time.

Love!
Beth
