Prayer for a mind of service

It’s a serious choice to consider when my service is required helping others around me. For some it is easy and yet for others it is a struggle. I have seen God work in my life many times, and just when I needed it most. So as I witness and experience this time of struggle happening all around me, with all ages of people suffering, I feel God’s Spirit directing my spirit to serve, without judgement, where it is needed or required of me. In my case it is with my family here at home. It is as a teacher to my daughter, a helper to my sweet bride and our aging mother’s care.

“…To a graceless neck the yoke of Christ is intolerable, but to the saved sinner it is easy and light. We may judge ourselves by this: do we love that yoke, or do we wish to cast it off? Psalms 2:3”

For me this day, I pray, Lord help me to serve those in need around me. I pray your Spirit guide my steps, with a willing heart, for service and your Loving care. Teach me to be selfless and remind me of the many blessings I already receive from you daily. In Jesus’ name, Amen!


Last night I was looking at some photos of two of my grandchildren and i realized, all my children are on my mind…tonight…and all the time.

I ponder, how are they each doing in life, physically, emotionally, financially, where is their faith walk, what is the status of their family.

I pray for them every night with my Sweet Bride Amy.

In Matt 18:19 & 20, the bible says: “v19 …Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. v20 …For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them…”

So tonight we prayed again for my children, and I asked the youngest of all, hanging out with God and all the angels, to keep watch over them all…Our dearest Tommy.

Family is one of the most important things to me, and one of my biggest challenges to maintain.
This is why I invoke my Lord, and my God, Jesus Christ…hear me Father GOD, I cannot do it alone.
I pray Holy Spirit, you are there beside each of them, speaking to them, listening for them to call out to you.
I pray for all my family, extended family and my brothers and sisters in my church. I pray for Peace for our country internally and for abroad. I pray for the unity of all believers to work and pray as one, for this peace and a time of healing for us all…in Jesus’ name Amen!

I was driving home after work on Monday evening and at a freeway on ramp light, i had to pull over into the emergency to capture this shot. It was so amazing! I thought i would share it here before archiving it with my Seattle photos.
