"Lord Jesus you are the Son of God. Without you nothing was made that was made. Thank you for the rain, today. Thank you that our family is together today, happy and healthy. Thank you Father, for the freedom to teach our children about you and teach them from your word. We pray for those who don’t know you…we pray for those close to us, friends and family…we pray for those who lead us, both our civic leaders and our church leaders…we pray for those who are always in the news…we pray for those who are weak and sick and gone astray…and lastly Father, we pray for ourselves and our needs. Give us a merry heart, that we may sing your praises with joy."
