What a great church sermon yesterday... I really needed the message on prayer... I can get SO consumed with my everday mothering duties in MY strength that I forget that I need to have that constant communication with my God about my day. I constantly IM Mark during the day about little things, but I don't constantly stay in touch with my Savior when the kids start fighting or when the money isn't there to pay the bills. I started reading "The Valley of Vision"- Puritan Prayers- what an encouragement...
"Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes,
All my own desires and hopes,
And accept Thy will for my life.
I give myself, my life,my all
Utterly to Thee to be Thine forever.
Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit.
Use me as Thou wilt.
Send me where Thou wilt.
Work out Thy whole will in my life
at any cost,
now and forever."
