Hey, bloggers! I hope that you like the new look...I was in the mood for a little change of scenery. There has been some really great dialogue going on here the last couple of days about famous prayers, so I want to continue on that subject today. Here are three more for your consideration and observation...
THE PRAYER OF JABEZ
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain." So God granted him what he requested. (I Chronicles 4:10 NKJV)
THE PRAYER OF ELEANOR ROOSEVELT
"Our Father, who has set a restlessness in our hearts and made us all seekers after that which we can never fully find, forbid us to be satisfied with what we make of life. Draw us from base content and set our eyes on far off goals. Keep us at tasks too hard for us that we may be driven to Thee for strength. Deliver us from the fretfulness and self-pitying; make us sure of the good we cannot see and of the hidden good in the world. Open our eyes to simple beauty all around us and our hearts to the loveliness men hide from us because we do not try to understand them. Save us from ourselves and show us a vision of the world made new."
GODSPELL"Day by day...Day by day...Oh, Dear Lord, three things I pray...To see thee more clearly, Love thee more dearly, Follow thee more nearly...Day by day..."
