Prayer - Aug 28, 2013
Heavenly Father, Sometimes it feels like we just can't keep up. Even if we could somehow fit 27 hours of work into a 24 hour day, we would still be running behind.
Our daily lives are full of never-ending to-dos like getting the kids to/from school, practice, cleaning house, grocery shopping, preparing meals, homework, laundry, refereeing sibling rivalry, working, exercise, paying bills, doctor visits and all the other things needed just to make our family function... one more day.
In this moment Lord, we choose to praise and thank You for the blessing of our family, no matter how chaotic it feels. Remind us that, at the end of the day, we simply want our children to grow closer to You. Let Your light shine through us so our children can see You Lord. We know that You will never give us anything we can't handle without You, and take comfort knowing You are always there encouraging us to press on.
In Jesus' name, amen.
