Thankful Thursday



This week's theme is prayer. "How appropriate," I thought. My pastor has been teaching this afresh from the Lord's prayer in Luke. I am thankful that the God of the universe is so gracious to show me how simple it is to talk to Him about anything. I am thankful that he cares for me, listens to my cries and begging, and chooses to act on my behalf. I am thankful that a situation touching my family's heart is not out of His reach. I am thankful that praying in God's will is the right thing and I can trust His sovereignty. I am thankful for a caring husband who walks with me through this challenge.

For more Thankful Thursdays visit Lori's Reflections, she is hosting for Grace Alone this week.
