30 Days of Praise Day 5





I praise You, Father, for the willingness of people to work together as a country to slow and stop this plague through following the guidelines.  I'm thankful that people are staying home, using good hygiene, social distancing, and now face masks to stop the spread.  I praise You for that wonder-full American spirit I see taking hold of the whole country.  We are working together and I give You praise!

Father, I praise You for the good people in our world.  Those people who are reaching out and helping others during this crisis.  I'm thankful for the calls and texts we've received from friends and family asking if we're okay and need anything.  I praise You that all is well with us, our needs are met, and we are healthy and safe.

I'm thankful for the kindness and  good deeds I see happening around me, both in my neighborhood and on the tv and internet.  I praise You for that spirit of love that is working in people in spite of this terrible plague on humanity.  People who've lost their jobs are reaching out to others with meals and other assistance.  People are making masks to help meet the supply needs for hospital workers and friends and family.  I have a friend who's sending me one through the mail.  Bless them all, Father.


And, I'm so thankful for the essential workers who are on the front lines to keep us supplied with necessary food and other items and services.  And for the health care workers, our military and police forces.  I pray for their safety, health, and strength. 

And especially I'm thankful for President Trump and his leadership during this crisis.    God bless and keep him and his family with safety, strength and wisdom.  I pray you will lead him in the path of righteousness and justice.

30 Days of Praise - Day 4



I praise You, Father,  for this stay-at-home season due to the virus.  It's like a prolonged Sabbath.  Less busyness. More rest.  More being still.  I like that.  I praise You that I don't hear cars and big trucks on the expressway nearby.  I love hearing children playing in the yards around us.  I love seeing parents walking with their children.  I praise You that good is coming out of this pandemic.

I praise You that I can sit on my back porch and see the glory of all the beauty You've created for my pleasure.  This view from my rocking chair always lifts my spirits. And I praise You for my dear husband who keeps it looking so pretty.  I praise You that we got to spend our Sabbath here today talking, praying and reading Your Word.  It was a very special Sabbath. 



I praise You for the birds singing, the butterflies and bees doing their pollinating, and the flowers enjoying the sun and warm breezes of this beauty-full day.  All the beauty fills me with awe and I have to say Haleluyah and give You glory!



I am so blessed to call You my Father.

30 Days of Praise - Day 3


"Oh, dear Father, how I praise You for Your love.  In love, You made the world and everything in it.  You made people to love them and to fellowship with them.  Thank You for letting me live in Your beauty-full world and for drawing me to You so that I could know Your love.

I praise You and thank You, Father, that I don't have to be afraid during this pandemic.  You hold me in Your loving hand and care for me.  All of my life, You've been faithful to care for me and I rest in Your tender love.

~~~

I hope you, too, will use this time of staying at home to be still, know that He is God, and give Him the praise He so richly deserves.  Please leave a comment below - even if it's just the word Haleluyah!
