Luke 18:1 Now He was telling them a parable [of the woman and the judge] to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart…
Father-God, my heart has often ached during this season leading up to our presidential election. I have feared for our nation because of the hate I hear in so many voices. I have feared for the direction our country is going. I despair for the murder of millions of the unborn. I fear for the sanctity of marriage and for the safety of my children and grandchildren in a world of terrorists. I have prayed for a man who knows You as His personal Savior to be in the White House, but I confess that I have not prayed at all times. Father-God, this verse says I am to pray at ALL times and to not lose heart at ALL times. I set my face today to obey that command. I will pray and I will not lose heart, no matter what the coming days and weeks bring. I will stubbornly cling to my trust in You. Thy will be done. Amen.
I didn’t complete my VW line edits yesterday but I am oh-so-close. I should be able to finish them this morning. I hope so. I would love to zap them back to my editor before she leaves the office today. Good thing, too, because I have a stack of unpaid bills that desperately need my attention. I least my head isn’t quite so stuffed up as it was a few days ago. Something the doctor gave me is working. Yea!
