Prayerful Thursday.....

I told Pappy that often I don't like doing my Thursday blog.
I hope that doesn't sound selfish, or unkind.
It's just that there are so many people hurting, unhealthy, facing medical tests, death has come to families....just so many things that I put on here that are sad things....and it just hurts my heart to have to ask for prayer for so many precious people who are suffering.

But, then I have to remember....
God already knows before I even put one single name on this list.
He knows exactly what our needs are...what is in hearts and on minds....but He wants us to bring all these cares and concerns to Him.

I Peter 5:7 (NLT)
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Dear Precious Lord,
I bring each of these names and concerns to You.
You already know before we even ask, dear Lord, what each of these hearts need.
Please touch each one and give them comfort from their fears, loneliness, hurt, sorrow, and pain.
In Jesus' most blessed and holy name I pray this,

In His Love...and with mine!!!
