God has given me ten grandchildren;
six granddaughters and four grandsons
I love them so.
Each one a priceless treasure
A blessing, a gift
I am grateful.
My greatest hope
And constant prayer
Is for all my grandchildren
To know unending, steadfast, perfect love.
We are eagerly awaiting the birth of our eleventh grandchild sometime this fall.
Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true (Joshua 21:45).
God’s Word is full of his promises. Knowing them shows you how to pray.
God alone understands the way to wisdom: he knows where it can be found (Job 28:23).
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God and he will give it to you (James 1:5).
If you ask for wisdom, you should also know this: The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is true understanding (Job 28:28).
Pray that God,
the source of hope,
will fill you completely with joy and peace
because you trust in him
Then you will overflow
with confident hope
through the power
of the Holy Spirit.
Created by God.
God richly provides us with everything to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17).
Thank you, Lord.
Whiter than snow.
Make this prayer yours. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalm 51:7).
The message of the cross . . . is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18).
Pray that many hear and believe.
Ferns, wilted hydrangeas and purple pansies. Like wildflowers we bloom and die. The wind blows and we are gone (Psalm 103:15-16).
Lord, teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
Flowers flourishing in an unlikely place, because they’re soaking up water and sunshine.
Pray that people will thrive during lock down, though reading God’s Word and Christian books*. Jesus said, “The very words I have spoken are spirit and life (John 6:63).“
As a cruel and violent army marched across the world, Hezekiah prayed, “O Lord, my God, my Holy One, you who are eternal—surely you do not plan to wipe us out?
God answered, “The Lord is in his heavenly Temple. Let all the earth be silent before him (Habakkuk 1:12; 2:20).”*
As the deadly Coronavirus marches across the world, we pray as Habakkuk did. And then we are silent, remembering, the Lord is God and He is good.
*Read all of Habakkuk’s prayer and God’s reply in Habakkuk 1:12-2:20.
