Today’s Prayer

IMG_0643_20150824201919975As I walked recently with my 11 year old nephew Cairon, his keen eye spotted this Great Blue Heron. Its beauty stirred a prayer in my heart. I pray you enjoy its beauty and the prayer as much as I did.Heavenly Father, help me today to remember: that you love me with an everlasting love; you care about every situation in my life; you have given me the gift of peace; You made me in an amazing and wonderful way; You will be with me to the end of the world, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Today’s Prayer

King's Ransom - 03282013 -100_1572

Heavenly Father,

If I am offended by anyone today, help me not to be tempted to become angry. Let my words, my thoughts, my response, be kind, patient, and loving. Help me to think, and respond from  Words that You have spoken to my heart from the Holy Scriptures, 
In Jesus name,

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. – Proverbs 15:1
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. – Ecclesiastes 7:9
You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. – James 1:19
