MERRY Monday

"Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day." ~ Quoted in P.S. I Love You

Have a wonderful and filled-with-smiles Monday...and PEACE to these precious little girls are signing.

There are many who have been hurt, devastated....facing both death in family and destruction in their homes from the recent storms...They are not smiling. Please lift a prayer to God today to comfort, provide through the hands of others, and give a measure of strength to these who are in a very hard part of the journey right now....

"The goal of prayer is the ear of God, a goal that can only be reached by patient and continued and continuous waiting upon Him, pouring out our heart to Him and permitting Him to speak to us. Only by so doing can we expect to know Him, and as we come to know Him better we shall spend more time in His presence and find that presence a constant and ever-increasing delight." (E. M. Bounds)

Prayer is our pipeline to the Lord.

It is this simple and easy access we have with our Heavenly Father to talk to Him at any time and in any place that is the most gracious and loving gift He could hand over to us.

We do not do it enough!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Phillipians 4:6

God Bless You Today! Have a MERRY Monday... Let the sun shine from your face today in that beautiful smile. It is one gift you can give away again and again and again, and never grow depleted or weary... :-)

Praying, always, and
most especially for those
suffering as I write. There
is no sun here, today, but
visiting you does make me
feel sunnier!

Prayer is the best thing we have here, I think. Knowledge in that he is listening, watching, keeping us safe. Wanting to help us in all we do, every step we take and all we have to do is choose him.
That Marine of yours has some pretty big arms...I hope you can fill him up while he is here!

Thank you for the reminder to pray - I've been reading and studying the Word nearly every day for awhile now, and have gained so much from this, but I really need to incorporate more prayer.
This spoke to me in your post:
'The goal of prayer is to bend the ear of God...' how much closer to God and more personal this makes prayer. Have a blessed day!
