Our Father in heaven Hallowed Be Your Name Your Kingdom Come Your Will be done on Earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors, and lead us not into temptation but Deliver Us from Evil, for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen
Just Pray…that’s all I can think to do or ask. There is a fire in our home town of Panama City. It started on Friday. I happened to be in the area. It was challenging… traffic was challenging… people were challenging…The Atmosphere was challenging. But most days are. The residents have been through so much…same as the rest of the world, So many Still desperately trying to recover from Hurricane Michael. Folk refuse to stop sprinkling 19 around, all the while so many are still struggling to put their homes as well as their lives back together. These are the challenges that we all face…and we face them globally. Natural disasters occur so often that it makes one wonder if they are natural…but instead of the wondering…we must pray. whether it be face to face or side by side, on the phoneline or via text. On social media platforms or at the park and playground…we have got to get back to the business of prayer instead of just praying, about our business!!! You know, Our wants and needs…our “family future”… we are all connected…through Christ…and There is power in prayer…there is power when we pray for each other…So much power.
Colossians 4:2 says that we are to…continue in prayer and watch in the same with Thanksgiving!!!
With each of life’s tragedies we are prevy to there is a softening…of the heart. Tender Mercies just as The Father has given. Forgiveness and Healing flowing like banners of victory…and this is what manifests as The Father slowly begins to burn out all of the things that are hindering His people…distracting us, to be lead away into the wilderness…into the darkness and stinch of this earth. This is A Temporary Place…Eternity is Forever and Ever and Ever…with our Father…Where Nothing else matters. No worries…No fears…No trouble-No Where.
And when all the smoke clears, we need to remember to be as kind tomorrow as we were on yesterday and don’t forget to pray…every day and not just when things are upside down….these things…that are plots of the enemy…God can turn it all around. But we have got to be willing….each and every day to Just Pray…because after all He is our daily bread now don’t forget to drink your water.
Blessings Abounding, Vetta
