I love how technology can help us connect with one another and with God! Here’s a new prayer app by Dutch Sheets called “Give Him 15”. It’s a national call to spend at least 15 minutes a day praying for our country. When you download the app, it gives you a short thought, some prayer points as well as a daily short prayer that we can be praying in unity. These were developed by people all over the country from various streams, but coming together daily to pray a united prayer. Please consider joining in! I’ve copied in the prayer points for today:
“Our harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men (bird hunting) so that we might…rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. Many of the Indians came amongst us and …for three days we entertained and feasted…by the goodness of God we are…far from want.”
Pilgrim Edward Winslow describes above the Pilgrim’s day of thanks after a long journey and a year so hard that over half of their numbers perished. Instead of growing bitter, they held a feast, invited the neighbors who helped them survive, the Native Americans, and thanked God for their bounty.
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Ask the Lord to forgive you when life is hard and you forget to thank Him for the blessings you have in the midst of pain.
- Thank Him for opening your eyes to all that He does to care for you daily.
- Ask the Lord to bless every person you can think of. He cares for them like He cares for you. Is there something kind you can do for a neighbor?
A prayer you can pray:
Dear Lord, thank You for giving me a thankful heart. Forgive me when I forget how good You are to me, even though sometimes life is hard. Help me to remember others who are in a difficult place. If there is something I can do to help them, please show me how. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
I decree that You are good to me and taking care of me, even when life’s circumstances make it hard for me to see it. Thank You, Lord!
