A Prayer For Today

Dear God, You have promised that Your Word is a river of life, that it satisfies and comforts my soul like a stream in the desert. I do not have much experience with rivers or deserts or trees. I do know from my childhood in Kansas that trees grow best near the streams. Please help me to be like the trees planted by the water, with roots that dig down into Your Word and faith that stands strong as the well-rooted tree in the hot and dusty seasons. Bless me, Lord, that I may be a blessing to others. Please guide and direct me in all that I do. Thank you for loving me and providing all I need along the way. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. Dear God, Thank you for the privilege of being able to commune with you through prayer. Thank you for speaking to me through your Word and teaching me through life's circumstances. Thank you for the beautiful birds that sing such a lovely song, for the sun that shines, for the rain that cools and replenishes the thirsty earth...and provides water for us to drink. I pray for those in lands where there is famine or flood; that You would balance the weather and provide their needs. Please reveal your power, your love, your presence to them in a mighty way; that they would know that you are God. With love and happiness that comes from the peace You give, Lord. Amen.
