I prayed for dirt today….
Then I got to school and got a prayer request about a dear friend who used to live here and she is facing a major health issue. My desire for dirt paled in significance. Also I heard from my daughter that her oldest son who is in college was hit while riding his bicycle and we think he is suffering from a mild concussion. Also another friend may have cancer and is facing surgery. My desires are so insignificant in comparison to these needs and I know there are scores of others.
Then I thought of how wonderful it is that I can go to the Lord in prayer with these requests and he hears each and every one. I am humbled to be able to pray for these people and to know that God is listening.
Father, I am so thankful that you hear every prayer we utter. I am humbled to be your child and to be able to pray for these needs. I am honored to be able to pray and I ask you to hear these requests and to help me be faithful in remembering these needs. Amen.
