Dear, Heavenly, Father,

You have encouraged us to come to you in prayer. No matter what the circumstances, your ears are always open to our words.  You are always available to comfort us and give us hope.  Even when the words seem self-serving and insignificant, you hear us.  Even when we can’t find the right words, you send your Spirit to speak for us.

Today I come before you on behalf of the people of my country.  The destructive winds and storms have raised fear and desolation in the minds and hearts of your children.  I know that you don’t cause these storms to punish us.  You, in your infinite mercy, have good purpose for all that happens in nature.  Maybe that plan includes an invitation to those who have not learned to rely on your strength in times of trouble. Put their minds at ease and send help to them in due time.  Give them all the power and strength to rebuild an even better country.

As the storms ravage in Florida and the southern states, I ask that you watch over those in its path.  Give them hope even when all seems hopeless.  As fires rage across our western states, rejuvenate the forests and send new life in place of the old.

May the true spirit of America rise again and live in the hearts and minds of the people you have placed here.  We are a united nation and under your governance, we can accomplish great things – even through adversity.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.  Amen!


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
