I have been very busy lately and it has shown itself in that I haven't had the time to post much here or anywhere . . . This is a post of a prayer I prayed on Valentines day I recently recited this prayer again just because I feel it is that important. So forgive me for its lateness...
"Heavenly Father.. . I have sinned I have committed . . . (omitted for obvious reasons) . . . Father I am grateful for your matchless grace and its manifest in my life. I am grateful for my work and my home which you have provided. I am grateful for the opportunity to face this day and for the health to face it well, and Father I am very grateful for the woman you have brought into my life. She fills my life with joy and wonder and fun and whimsy. Father Please be with our country that our leaders be led to choices that will keep us on the right track for freedom and prosperity. Father I ask also that if it be thy will that my family be healthy and happy. Father I ask for myself that you help me concentrate and stay consistent in the learning of your doctrine. And finally I ask father that you help me to be the man for the woman you have graced me. Help me be strong of will and spirit that I can protect and serve her. Help me be wise and mature of soul that I can guide and respect her. Help me to show her I love her and am grateful for her. For I pray in the name of your holy and precious son Jesus Christ Amen. .
I post this mostly for my benefit and as a window into what I was thinking on valentines day. I do not intend this post to be any instruction on prayer or to make anyone feel any negative emotions with regard to their prayer life or lack there of. That is between you and your soul and not my place. So please please take no guilt or offense from this post.
