a prayer

before i went to bed last night i said a prayer.
a prayer for all those affected by the horrible tornadoes in oklahoma yesterday, a prayer for our country, a prayer for my friends and family, and lastly a prayer thanking God for his many blessings.
when bad things happen in this world, we go to God.  i do it, you do it, we all do it.

we tend to cry out to him when things aren't going our way.  but what about thanking him daily for the things we don't deserve?

i'm deeply saddened by the devastation in oklahoma yesterday.  so many families are hurting!  they've lost their homes and important memories, and many of them have lost loved ones.

i cannot begin to imagine the heartache they are feeling.

today i want to ask you a favor.
when you say a prayer...
instead of going to God for something you want, tell him thank you.  thank him for his blessings.  thank him for your loved ones.  and thank him for his forgiveness and love.

and then i want you to say a prayer for all those who are hurting.

pray for oklahoma.
pray for boston.
pray for west texas.
pray for sandy hook.
pray for aurora colorado.
pray for the hurricane sandy victims.
pray for your town.
pray for your loved ones.
and pray for our country.

and remember...
