I had a wonderful idea for my post tonight, but it did not work out. Here is what I had planned on giving you in a handwritten version for my prayer of the week, then I realized that I would not be able to make it large enough to be readable.
Tonight I am having a wonderful time thinking about how I am going to write my prayer of the week. I have decided to participate in the hour long time of using less electricity, so I am sitting at the table writing out my prayer in the light of two oil lanterns. As I look out the window you can tell the city has not decided to participate, because you can see the lights reflecting on the fallen snow.
I get my inspirations for my prayers from books, sermons, magazines and my children. If there is something you would like me to pray about, please leave a comment.
Thank you for the wonderful day with my children and the snow that is coming down.
I would like help remembering that I should always be striving to be like Your Son. As Christians we need to remember that other people see Jesus through us. If we aren't living a life of Jesus, unbelievers will get the wrong message about what Jesus is really like. Please Lord, keep your hand on me while I am trying to be more like Your Son.
Thank you. In Your name, Amen.
