I Pray For… By Brenda Drake

            In the troubling times there is much to pray for.   Also there are many things to give thanks for. When we place our heart and mind on Jesus and His promises to His redeemed like the old song we used to sing; ( things of the world grows strangely dim.)

I Pray For…

I pray for wisdom and eyes open and willing to see,
The signs of the times, without fear as I follow close after Thee.
I pray for the resources I need in the tasks ahead,
With a good memory and good mind to remember all the Word says.
Give me joy and peace that is contagious so others gather strength too;
With joyfulness in the honor and privilege to follow after you.
As time marches on give the body I live in health,
Increase my ability to distribute the wealth,
 Of the many gifts bestowed on me.
Allow my life to count in souls brought to Thee.  
I pray for my family and for my friends to know,
The sure love and provisions Jesus provides for their soul.
I pray for our Country and its leaders, as Your will is done;
Will be counted as worthy when judgement day comes.
I pray for strength and endurance to run the race with success;
As in Your perfect will and plan I in confidence rest.

1Thesalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice evermore.  Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks:
 for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
