Matterofprayer: A Year of Everyday Prayers – Wednesday, July 1, 2015
Blessing, Blessing, Everywhere. In Prayer.
It’s a new month, and I have a new focus for this blog. In July, I am going to concentrate on an intriguing book named Praying the New Testament as Psalms. Desmond O’Donnel and Maureen Mohen wrote the book, and I thought I’d sample some chapters. I mean, psalms.
O’Donnell and Mohen did do an excellent job. We’ll lead off the month with Blessing.
Gracious God, You indeed have blessed us with every spiritual blessing. Help us—help me to to something similar. Please allow my friends gifts they will appreciate. I sometimes feel scared and aware something is going to be coming. Please, God, give me the strength to be kind to those who are against me and the things I feel so strongly.
Dear God, You have concentrated on giving good things to me. (Me, are you sure?) Help me love You more nearly, more dearly. I would exchange so much that I have for more knowledge and understanding of You.
In Jesus’ precious, powerful name I pray, Amen.
