Monthly Thoughts from Pastor Fred Naumann

MY PRAYER IS. . .

by

Pastor Fred Naumann

Dear Lord… thank you for loving us… redeeming us… bringing us into Your family now and forever. . .

May we ever, always, and daily search the Bible to know You more fully and love You more dearly and follow You more nearly.

 

Hold us together in families and as family. Bless and strengthen Moms and Dads to be Your servants to Your children in their care. Keep their union strong and healthy….

 

Bless the young to be wise….. And if foolish no lasting hurt. . .

 

Make the old to be young at heart and spirit, and their hurts able to be borne and their lonesomeness warmed by memories and thoughtful friends who remember them…. Neighbors who stop to chat… or phone……

 

Let folks be happy we are here and remember us when we leave. Help them find a home… a job… a car.

 

Grant us a spirit of loving concern…. kindness… gentleness in our so callous and oft cruel and thoughtless society.

 

Be with us in every situation… every sadness … every joy…. every failing and every victory. . .

 

May You be first and foremost in our sight, thoughts, and hearts.

 

Let us use our gifts for one another in a selfless, self-giving manner.

 

Let us live life Your way being confident, which is the best way.

 

Let them and us see You in us.

 

Bless our work, efforts and leisure, fun and games.

 

Let us greet the new day with vigor and delight.

 

May our sick, those we now mention . . .  Make them strong in trust… spirit… and, if it be Your will, in body…

 

Lord be our guest… our mighty Friend… our gracious Father here, now and forever…..

 

In Jesus’ name… Amen.

 

And the peace of the Lord be with you.
