Because of the holidays, I haven’t had time to think about what to write, so I referred to my little book of “Daily Psalms and Prayers” for this week’s column. Here is what I read for the day after Thanksgiving, which I thought was so appropriate and want to share with you.
“In this season of family get-togetherness, my heavenly Father, I thank you for the good things about my family. And, Lord, where there are family challenges and strife, I pray that you would intervene. Please soften hearts; change minds, grant grace and forgiveness…even miracles! Heal our broken relationships, dear Father, and protect our healthy ones. Let unity ultimately prevail–but not a thin, superficial unity that could break at any moment. Please forge an unbreakable unity within our hearts by your righteousness and peace. In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen”
As I read in this little book every morning, I think it’s amazing that its thoughts correspond with my daily routine. It seems to mirror the very acts of my daily life so consistently. Especially, when it comes to family life. There isn’t family anywhere who doesn’t have tribulations or fallacies that can’t be overcome by God’s intervention; I know that for a fact.
As each day brings us closer to the King of King’s birthday, let us remember that He is the head of our heavenly family and will take care of our earthly family. Thank God!
Thought for the day: Grace, forgiveness and love are essential ingredients for unity among believers. Anonymous.
