 About Prayer

Prayer for a Summer Day - Author Unknown

Long warm days... The pace of life slows... A time for picnics and rest in the shade... Lord, help me to rest a while in the cooling shade of your presence. Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people. Amen.

June is here! The days of June are filled with so many activities… weddings, graduations, picnics, Father’s Day, summer, recitals, etc. We can find so many things to keep us busy. In the prayer above the author suggests that we take a break with the Lord. Meditate and calm your heart, your mind, your body. Fill your heart with thinking/praying for others.

Have an old fashioned notepad and list all of the people in your life who need prayer. Be specific and write all you want for them so they may achieve some peace in this world.

Now take your list and relax with God, enjoy his calming presence and tell him all your friends need. Just read your list: “This is what my friend ___________needs Lord. If it is your will and the right time to receive please let it be so.”

Continue down your list. Try to make a list each day. This will help you spend time with Love and Hope daily. Your soul will feel refreshed!

There will be no Prayer Vigil this month! Our son JD is getting married on June 2nd!
