Oh Heavenly Father, our protector and guide, You are the greatest Friend
and joy we have! To be able to come to You in prayer like this is the
most beautiful part of our lives!
It is not for myself that I want to pray today, dear Father, but for
those who are near and dear to me and about whom I worry. You know
what they are facing, dear Father. And You know most of all the deepest
reasons why these things have come upon them!
And You know how I want to help. Truly I think it would be easier if I
could only face what they are facing. But You know how helpless we are
to help another even though we know what is just and right.
Only You are left, dear Father. Do be with them in all things at all times.
Protect them from enemies and evil, my Father. Forgive them their
sins and put love of others in their hearts.
Oh do make them happy in their lives at home, dear Father, and help them
live as You wouldst have them live. Above all, put in their hearts
Love for You.
And thank You, my Father, for Your goodness to them and to me. Thank You
for Your love and guidance and protection! May we honor you all the days
of our lives. And be happy and uplifted even as I feel right now!
