National Day of Prayer

Today is the National Day of Prayer. To me, and you'll have to pardon the comparison, this is a lot like Earth Day. I mean, I don't need a special Earth Day to remind me to recycle or consume less. It's important to me, so I do that stuff every day of the year.

And I certainly don't need a National Day of Prayer to remember to pray. It's like breathing to me. It's part of who I am. I can't imagine going a day without praying. I personally couldn't get through the day without talking to God, and I have no idea how people who are not believers can find any real satisfaction in their lives without Him. He brings me a joy and inner peace that is simply not found anywhere else.

So, here's to making every day a day of prayer!

Tiff, I totally agree! The idea of setting aside a day for prayer is rediculous. How can we not thank Him each time throughout the day when things could have gone really badly & didn't? Having a special prayer time in a day could become a ritual, much as repeating the Lord's Prayer each Sunday morning. We are paying NO attention to what we're saying. <> Things will not always go our way, but they will be done the right way: His.

My love to all of you.
