Today is the National Day of Prayer. Instead of writing a long post about the toddler and his pooping adventures, I'll list what's on my heart and encourage others to take their concerns, praises and thoughts to God on a day when millions of others are doing the same thing in celebration of what an awesome gift He has given us with prayer.
*Our state and national leaders to have wisdom and discernment
*Persecuted Christians to hold steadfast in their faith and find comfort and peace in God's promises
*To be a leader (as a mom and in the world) who has integrity and abundantly loves others
*To know God better and do His will for my life instead of following my own agenda
*For the mothers and fathers around the globe who have to say goodbye to their children way too early in life
*For communities and individuals to step up to the plate and care for the children in the world who desperately need someone to care for them ... to sponsor a child in need, visit World Vision.
And those are just some of the things that come to my mind. I don't think I ever really devote all of the time to prayer that I should, so today is as good a day as any to talk with the Lord and ask for His guidance, mercy and help. Please let me know if I can go to the Lord on your behalf in prayer.
