Our Heavenly Father, hear again our thanks for life itself and another day of opportunity to be about things that can make a difference in the lives of others. We thank you too for the promise of renewed growth of crops planted – ________________and for your concern for each of us. Amen
Most all of Dad’s prayers are fully complete. Words may be edited at the last minute but a fill-in-blank? Never. So like most voids, I am curious what filled it.
Perhaps I am focused on it to distract me from the bigger “elephant” on the page….to be about things that can make a difference in the lives of others. Being about things that can be “others” oriented, that might even make a difference in their lives, is a gentle prod. A prod that closes with 2 huge guarantees:
- God has concern for each of us
- Amen=We agree, so we’re not alone
