For 2017

Sunday - My gift to you

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Trust in the Lord Always, again I say rejoice!





I like to keep Sundays short and sweet and I thought that song was just perfect.

A little prayer for the National Day of Prayer this last week:

Hi Lord, its me,
We are getting older and things are getting bad here.
Gas prices are too high, no jobs, food and heating costs too high.
I know some have taken you out of our schools, government and even Christmas, but Lord I'm asking you to come back and re-bless America .
We really need you!
There are more of us who want you than those who don't!
Thank You Lord, I Love you.

"Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point."
Love, Chatty

As I went through our little town last Thursday I did see a group of people gathered around our gazebo there with hands joined in prayer and I added my own too. Your prayer is a wonderful one! Mine was much simpler. Hope your Sunday is a great one!

Something about my early religious experience was: A written prayer is like a canned prayer. But I have found myself in the later years, enjoying actually reading a prayer and saying "YES LORD that is exactly how I feel!"

When I could hear, I did the same with someone praying aloud, I would find my self saying "Amen Lord, that is me!"
Thanks for the prayer, it FITS!!!

Perfect message today! I'm praying this prayer also! Hugs, Linda

Wonderful song and I love the prayer. We could certainly do with that one over here in England as well. We Christians seem to be sidelined more and more, whilst we have to be careful not to upset other faiths.

Have a beautiful Sunday.
Hugs, Debby

Good message today, Sandie. :)
You could have preached our sermon today at Abbey Road Baptist Church in London, U.K.
It was from Romans 1:18-23 where man should believe because of all the creation that only God could make.
But then how man doesn't want to face up to God so he denies Him and makes his own gods following design of man, beast, fowl and reptiles. Man also makes up his own creation story called Evolution.
In the end however, every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. But that will be too late for those waiting that long.
I wish our American preachers would preach like that more often.

Dolores said...

I love this beautiful prayers....... and oh how true it is.
Thanks for the special gift...
Hugs,

I totally agree with that last comment. I've been a Christian since my early teens, and life without God is pointless.

Lynn said...

I like that prayer, Sandie.

BelovedBomber said...

Have a blessed day of rest! It is hard to imagine that He would willingly do all that He did for us while we were yet sinners...God is so good!

GrammyK said...

Hope you're having a wonderful and blessed Sunday!!! Love the prayer and the little rock in the picture was so sweet!!

Praying that your week will be awesome!!! <3

Rob-bear said...

Strange. I was talking about being rooted and grounded in God, based on Jesus' thoughts about vine and branches.

Common thoughts and experiences.

Michaele said...

My heart feels good : )

Sweet Tea said...

There are more of us than them which has to give us all hope.

You are so right about life without God having no point!

Bev said...

Thank for the great post!

Paula said...

Pray your Sunday was a blessed one. We only had ten present at our little country church today. The amount isn't important as long as God is there and he was.

SweetMarie said...

Amen! Wonderful post!
Love you,
