God help us to see past our differences to the common ground that unites us as a country. Help each of us to find ways to love each other and meet needs as they arise. Help our leaders to learn and grow and make wise choices that benefit as many as possible.

Dear God, I pray today on January 20th 2017 that you help our nation. I am proud of it and I request that today on Inauguration Day that you fill the new president with wisdom and guidance. And I thank you that I am recovering from surgery. I love you,amen.
Inauguration Day is here Lord and the transfer of power begins a new era. Lord, you are sovereign above all things and though this feels big to us, in proper perspective next to you, it is small. Lord, help us to remember that the earth is your footstool and that ultimately and forever our God […]
Father in heaven, thank you that we belong to a country where we have religious freedom – where we can pray privately in person and publicly online or in a community.

The opening words of Charles Dickens’s infamous novel, A Tale of Two Cities, aptly describe my mood as we approach Inauguration Day 2017: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…”
To sum it up, I’m torn. I want to be hopeful, but I’m hesitant. I want to applaud, but I’m tentative. I want to feel proud of our nation and our president, but instead I find myself feeling apprehensive.
So what do I do?
It’s a new year Lord and, generally speaking, new years usher in alongside them, new hopes. Hopes that this year will be better than last, that this year I glorify you with my life, that this year I will be a better wife, parent, daughter, friend, a better steward of my body and my finances. […]
Please pray for the Lord God to help Oregon and other states to have more effective ministry to the mentally ill. The system is broken and some of the homeless and some people in prison have severe mental health issues. May more individuals and church ministries reach out and make positive differences. May the Lord […]
Father thank you for a new year, for family, for friends, for a multitude of blessings and joys. Lord we lift up our country to you. Help us to have eyes to see one another the way that you do. To reach out in love and compassion and not get overly caught up in our […]
