SATURDAY PRAYER

DEAR, HOLY, GOD:

The first week of the new year has come and gone and with it, the tears from last year have spilled over the edge and into this one. You are completely aware of all the sadness that our country has experienced and continues to hang on to. I guess I was gullible enough to hope that we might have learned something from all those tears, but perhaps we still have much to sort through before we finally get it.

You know all of this, Lord. You keep track of every little detail of our lives – even our tears. You feel our sadness. You created us in your image and even though you are all powerful, you empathize with us because of your infinite love for us.

As much as I love my country, I feel so much sadness right now. Not only because of the state of affairs in this land, but because we have become so divided. This is something that’s been going on for a long time and I don’t expect it will be fixed any time soon, but I also have faith in your omnipotence.

My tears can be collected for many years to come. You have shown me, through your compassion, that you can make them disappear in an instant because of your power. You alone can turn the storms of life in to life giving water. I praise you and honor your holy name through Jesus, your precious Son. Heal my land. Heal our hearts and minds. Bring us back to you. 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.

  1. Dear Kathy, this is perfect. I don’t know how you manage to put into words the very things that I am thinking and feeling. I keep trying to put these things in writing, and so far I haven’t been able to.

    That scripture about the Lord saving our tears in a bottle is a special favorite of mine. The first time I came across that verse, I was in a hospital, at the end of my rope. Then I bought a Bible, read that verse at random, and a day or two later, I made the decision to believe in Christ as my risen Savior and ask Him to be the Lord of my life.

    Then everything began to change! Perfect, no, but oh so much better. I know now that He is always with me, comforting, protecting, and — saving my tears in a bottle.

      You just laid out a most beautiful testimony, my sweet friend. To know that God empathizes in our darkest times is so reassuring. It doesn’t mean our lives will be perfect, but gives us hope for eternity. Thanks for your kind comments.😍
