Thoughts for Monday

As I look at the above picture,

I notice how intensely

the detective is following the footsteps.

What if we had that kind of interest


following Jesus?

If we will follow Jesus' footsteps

like the detective

is following those footsteps,

we could avoid

a lot of problems in our life. 

And we could become

a better mentor 

to those we love.

Prayer for Monday

Loving Lord,

I want to follow you more closely.


I will follow you

like that detective

was following those footsteps.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Thoughts for Tuesday

As I look at the above picture,

I realize that today

the world is crying out for heroes.

No matter what age I am

I can be a hero today

for somebody.

I can give a kind word or a helpful hand.


Two Prayers for Tuesday

Dear Lord,

You are the

Creator of Wonders and Spectacular Joys.

Thank you

that you have given me

what it takes to bless people this day.

I will begin with

a warm smile and a kind word.

Lord of my heart,

I value you, and I value your Word.

Your Word tells me to love and bless other people.

Your will is for me to view everyone in my life as valuable. You want me to honor people and treat them with respect every day.

I receive my mission to love people this day.

I receive my mission to be:

helpful toward their needs,

compassionate toward their hurts,

encouraging toward their trials,

enthusiastic toward their victories,

warm toward their presence,


forgiving toward their mistakes and sins.

Change my heart, Lord. Teach me to be more like you.

I will yield to you this day.

pop up in my day."


Prayer for Wednesday

Almighty God,

You are Amazing and Awesome.

You are Great and Glorious.

You are Powerful, and

You do impossible things.

calmness and patience. 



the peaceful, patient person

that you are leading me to be.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Overheard comment:

Do you want to know how I deal with bumper to bumper traffic?

I open my glove compartment and get out my bubbles.

Then I lower my window and blow a few bubbles out my window.

How can I stay upset while silly bubbles are blowing across the highway?

Thoughts for Thursday

As I look at the above picture,

I realize that

God speaks personally to each of us.

Is there something he wants you to surrender to him?
