Please say a Prayer.

( pic/poem courtesy of flicker)
I thank you that you are always just a prayer away.
What an awesome thought to know that at any moment
just by lifting my mind and heart
a bit I can talk to the very Creator of the Universe
When I read this poem earlier I cried. We have such a valuable resource in prayer. It is our private connection to God. I hope you enjoyed the poem as much as I did today, and I hope it lifts you up.

I have a favor to ask of each of you. When you go to God in prayer, please remember my bother-in-law, JB. His Dad passed away Monday night. I know that JB is strong and he will always cherish the lifetime of memories he had with his dad, but I also know that even men have a hard time when faced with losing a parent. Please remember his wife, Sherri and their children, losing a loved one is never easy especially for little ones little ones who have never suffered this type of loss and may find it very hard to understand or comprehend.
Thank you for your friendship and I am so blessed to have each of you in my life.

We will pray for him...losing a father is so difficult and so hard to get through without prayer.

Have a blessed day!
