My Easter Prayer

           A good friend emailed this to me 3 years ago and hubby printed it and stuck it on our fridge.  Today, since it is Holy Saturday, is an appropriate time for me to share this with you and hope that we would adopt this in our approach to life. Amen. Ophelia

         "Dear Lord, I thank You for this day.  I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.  I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.  You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.  Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you.  I ask now for Your forgiveness...

           Please keep my family safe from all danger and harm.  Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.  Le me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear YOU.

            Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.  Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes & acknowledge it as evil.  And when I sin, let me repent & confess with my mouth of my wrong doing & receive forgiveness.

           And when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -- to slip away & find a quiet place to pray.  It is the best response when I m pushed beyond my limits.  I know that when I can't pray, YOU listen to my heart.  Continue to use me to do YOUR Will.

            Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.  Keep me strong that I may help the weak.  Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.  I pray for those who are lost & can't find their way.  I pray for those who are misjudged & misunderstood.  I pray for those who don't know YOU intimiately.  I pray for those who don't believe And I thank You that I believe.

              I believe that YOU change people & YOU change things for good reasons.  I pray for all my brothers & sisters; for each & every one of my family members & friends & their families.  I pray for PEACE, LOVE & JOY  in Every Home that they are out of debt & ALL their needs are met.  I pray that every eye that reads this KNOWS there is No problem, circumstance, or situation GREATER THAN YOU.  Every battle is in Your hands for YOU to fight.  I pray that these words be received into the hearts of Every Eye that reads this & Every Mouth that confesses them willingly ...

                  This is my prayer in Jesus' Name.  Praise the Lord, for He is Risen Today.  Amen".  Ophelia
