Father, we pray for the men and women of our military, that You would guide them in the execution of all their tasks. May You establish their work.
Lord, we pray for each other, for all who come here to pray; You know each one of us by name, and You know our hearts and our lives. Bless, comfort, guide, rebuke, and encourage according to each need.
LORD, when I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of Your hands, and You put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the sea. In Your image, O God, You made us, and You gave us this world to fill and to subdue and to govern, to live and to play and to work in. And though You have filled this universe with things too wonderful for us to understand, yet You are always remembering and caring for us. We praise You for the place You have given us, in Your creation and in Your heart, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
A call to prayer.
Read: 1 Samuel 1:9-20
After reading several childrens books with my daughter, I told her that I was going to read a grown-up book for a while and then we would look at books together again. I opened the cover and began to read in silence. A few minutes later, she looked at me doubtfully and said, Mommy, you arent really reading. She assumed that since I wasnt speaking, I wasnt processing the words.
Like reading, prayer can be silent. Hannah, who longed for a child of her own, visited the temple and spoke in her heart as she prayed. Her lips were moving, but her voice was not heard (1 Sam. 1:13). Eli the priest saw but misunderstood what was happening. She explained, I . . . have poured out my soul before the Lord (v.15). God heard Hannahs silent prayer request and gave her a son (v.20).
Since God searches our hearts and minds (Jer. 17:10), He sees and hears every prayereven the ones that never escape our lips. His all-knowing nature makes it possible for us to pray with full confidence that He will hear and answer (Matt. 6:8,32). Because of this, we can continually praise God, ask Him for help, and thank Him for blessingseven when no one else can hear us.
Amen, Irish Rose. I love Psalm 8 and am happy to pray along with you today. God bless you.
Amen to your prayer for Our American Heroes and For Our Nation (I LOVE that Psalm!).
In pray for our Beloved Men and Women of our military. Thank you The Mayor for your post. I know a dear one who is crying silently and praying quietly so as not to cause an effect in the home. My own heart weeps with her in much the same way. May Mercy finds its way in tender Mercy...Amen.
Adding my prayers for our Heroes, all athletes and our beloved Nation.
Amen, Irish Rose
