90 Prayers, 90 Days

I'm not sure about about anyone else out there but I've somehow lost touch with the spiritual side of myself. I grew up going to church and at various points in my life have been actively involved in organized religion. Those who know me well, know what church I identify with the most. But that's not what important to me at the moment or with this little exercise. I'm not looking for a church to attend. I want to look within myself, reflect on what I have become and reconnect with my spiritual self ... I know she's in there, and I simply want to make a greater effort to have some sort of higher power in my life. One that will guide me in the direction I need to go.

So what's the plan? The plan is to write, and in turn share with my Lord, 90 prayers in 90 days. I'll start today


 Day One, Prayer One

My Father in Heaven,

Even though I seem quite ungrateful, frustrated and angry alt these days, I do know I have much to be grateful for. Inspire of aches and pains, I wake each morning and have another day. I have another day to spend with those I love. I am blessed to be the mother of two precious angels. Shelby teaches me each day to be strong, have an opinion and seek knowledge in all I do. Cooper teaches me that life is exciting and filled with joy. Mike shows me that hard work is important and will make a difference in our lives. Though I moan, complain and feel overwhelmed, I have much to be thankful for. Please Lord, help me see the goodness around me. Help me pick out the awesome things that fill my world. Remind me each minute of each hour of each day that I am blessed beyond measure. But most of all my Father, help me act like someone who is blessed. Let me have more love, more gratitude and more patience fir those around me. Please bless my family. Keep them safe when I am far away. Wrap them with your love and remind them that no matter where I am in the worked not a moment goes by at I don't think of them, hope for the best for them and love them with my entire heart and soul. Thank you Father. I am indeed blessed.

In Jesus' name, amen.
