This time of life is NOT a Dress Rehearsal…

Good Morning, LORD. Let me start this day and every day with a prayer of thanksgiving to You, Father. Cause me to start each day with a prayer for Your protection. Shield me from misfortune and from those who look to hurt me. Bless me for I am Your devoted child who finds purpose in serving You. Here I am, Lord! Ready to be made an instrument of Your peace if it is Your will to clear the way. For all the daddies on my prayer list, Father, please help them be Dads and not just meal tickets.

Help me stand strong in the face of abounding sin in the world and for the battle being fought to protect the lives of the unborn. Convict us a nation, Father and lead us back to faith in You. This day I pray in Jesus’ holy name. Amen
