My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Care
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
You have taught children and infants to tell of Your strength, silencing Your enemies and all who oppose You. When I look at the night sky and see the work of Your fingers— the moon and the stars You set in place—what are people that You should think about them, mere mortals that You should care for them? Psalm 8:2-4 NLT
I thank You God, Lord of the universe, designer and maker of all that is in the heavens and all that is upon the earth, that You are mighty and that You alone do marvelous things. I thank You that You have not only made me and my children, shaped us, and breathed into us the breath of life, but that You look out for each one of us. Reveal to us Your mighty strength, Your awesome power, and Your infinite wisdom.
It is amazing to me to realize, not only how great You are, but how much You care about the lives of those You have created. You see, know, understand, and care about every detail of their lives. It is in You that they live, and move, and have their being.
Thank you that we are on Your mind and in Your thoughts
today. I pray that our hearts would trust in You, that our thoughts would
turn toward You, and that our feet would follow You all the days of our lives.
