Dear God, all too often I tend to jump into my wish list with You, and I’m so sorry when I truncate how You taught us to pray.
Please help me to intone Your name and will…and beg forgiveness for my failures…and to be grateful for my blessings.
So, Father, as I do that, I pray for these who need Your tender loving touch: M – lost his Mom to Alzheimer’s (such a Godly woman), P- for her own health and her husband who is slowly wasting away, K- for her surgery, J-for her advancing paralysis which seems to have no answers, D&C- for remission from cancer, A-whose cancer has metastasized, S-for healing from resentment, D- for a new career and estranged children, B-with progressive aphasia, P- for remission of his cancer, G- for loss of her husband, G-for healing in his marriage, J- old friend who lost his wife recently to Alzheimer’s, S- who desperately needs to know you personally, and so many more.
Please keep these and others on my heart and lips as I pray in gratitude for what You have given me. Send special grace, LORD, in Jesus’ name. Amen
