Best Prayer I have heard in a Long Time…


Heavenly Father, Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in 
traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day 
and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry 
and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man 
who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college 
student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of 
not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the 
same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to 
addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through 
the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this 
moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last 
week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, 
the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with 
those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those who are close to 
us, but to all humanity.

Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive
show patience, empathy and love. Matt 5:44 Working for God on earth doesn’t pay much……but His retirement plan 
is out of this world!!!
