Easy Yoke

Dear God,

We have read, from Jesus, “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  I would claim that promise today.  I would walk through this Sabbath Day with the wind at my back, Your blessing in my heart.

Be with me on this bright and sunny, balmy, day, for pleasures galore.  You want us happy, and it is ourselves that sometimes deny joy.

Thank You.

Amen.

Beautiful Day

Dear God,

Another beautiful spring day, sun bright, humidity low, sky blue, birds singing.  My time with You on the sun/screen porch is a blessed time for me.  Thank You for all that You created in Your world to bring us joy, contentment, harmony.

Be with me today.  Keep my mind cemented to Your will, my heart enthralled with Love for You.

Thank You.

Amen.

World

Dear God,

Can my prayers for the world make a difference?  Of course!  I can simply extend my hopes for myself to others.  I want peace and joy, and is this not the prayer of all?

Be with me today, as I seek to expand my horizons to encompass the world.  Prayer does change things, and I would add my voice to the multitude who pray that this world might get better.

Thank You for putting this insight on my heart today.

Amen.

Delight

Dear God,

On this sunny, warm day in my town, be with me all day long for excitement about the many activities that are available to me.  This world is big enough to find delight in all manner of things.  Help me never, ever, to contemplate boredom, because there is no need.

Thank You for letting me know that there is no need to rue the day.  Today is a day of relaxation and joy; help me to sense this.

Amen.

Joyous

Dear God,

Thank You for coming so close to me when I was waiting in the car, quietly, yesterday.  I felt that if I had this ongoing relationship all the time, I could live eons in happy peace.

That peace is my birthright, and it is only in turning aside from You that I have lost it.  Keep me on the straight and narrow today, joyous in Your company.

Thank You.

Amen.
