8/10/04 Our Heavenly Father, we give you our thanks – for the freshness and beauty of this day – for our health and well being.
Be with those who do not enjoy what we enjoy – give them hope, health and a glimpse of peace and freedom. Amen
I understand this prayer on 2 levels, whether or not that was my dad’s intent. The obvious is that there are people less fortunate than ourselves and we pray for blessings for them. But, also we who have much to be grateful for, often do not enjoy it.
May you glimpse the joy and claim it today.
