Today is the National Day of Prayer

Today marks the 60th Annual Observance of the National Day of Prayer.  The theme this year is, “A Mighty Fortress is our God”.  What an awesome theme when you look back over not only your own life but at our country as a whole.  With the devastation we have seen not only in our country but other countries as well, if God was not our fortress we would have already been consumed.  Some may say there were many consumed with the recent flooding, yes it is true, but it could have been much worse as well.  God is still a mighty fortress and He is our God. 

Even in my own life over the past few months, there have been some situations that were not favorable yet and still I thank God that He kept me thru it all.  Times when I thought I would lose my mind, he kept my mind regulated.  Times when I felt like just quitting, He gave me the strength to go on.   At times when I was down in the valley, He was the lifter of my head. 

I urge you today to join the many others who are going before God in prayer, not ask of Him anything but just to offer up your praise, thanksgiving and adoration to Him.  Think not of yourself but lift up a petition to Him on behalf of someone else.  Pray that through your life he may receive the glory for it is He and He alone who deserve it.
