More than anything, I believe that this world needs prayers for its leaders, prayers for the sick, prayers for the poor, prayers for the little ones struggling at school, prayers for the moms that seem to run out of time at the end of the day.
We need prayers for the police officers keeping us safe in an unsafe world. We need prayers for the firefighters as they keep fires from spreading. We need prayers for our military and for their mamas. How the mama sleeps at night while their babies are out fighting wars shows our strong mamas are.
We need prayers for the doctors. We need prayers for the therapists. We need prayers for the nurses. Oh how they need prayers for patience and for their patients.
We need prayers for the teachers. We need prayers for the students. We need prayers for the school’s administrators and for the office staff. Oh how much I depended on the office staff throughout the years. I do not think they realize how important of a job they have and what comfort they are to the kids.
Oh the kids, oh the teenagers, oh the youth! We need prayers for them for kindness, love, and support and that they know that they are never alone, that there is someone who cares, that their is someone who loves them and will never leave them. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
Again, let us pray for this country. Pray for the midwest as they rebuild their homes from the tornadoes. Pray for other countries as they rebuild and recover from the devastation that comes to them in the different forms of natural disaster ~ hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes and flooding.
Let us all remember that as we wake each day, we should pray for ourselves because we never know if we may only have that one day left. Let us remember to pray for all of the above and more and that we pray with thanksgiving with all that we have been blessed with and let us ask for forgiveness for all the times that we have let others down.
In a minute, our lives can change and our entire world may be turned upside down and we may call on the above for help to get us through and they will need all of our prayers.
What do you pray for today?
