In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

This is the catholic church here in wobegon. I do not attend here but it is a pretty building.

PSALM 33:12

What joy for the nation whose God is the LORD, whose people he has chosen as his inheritance.

1TIMOTHY 2: 1-2

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.

ACTS 17:26-27

From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. "His purpose was for the nations to seek after god and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him-though he is not far from any one of us.


Devote yourselves to pray with an alert mind and a thankful heart.


Never stop praying.

Here are a few verses from todays bible talk at church. It was a prayer service about our nation and how important it is for us christians to keep on praying for our leaders and all those around us....very informative and moving. Even though we might be concerned who is in office or how our country is moving in the wrong direction we must remember "all authority comes from God"

I feel challenged to pray more. I hope you do the same.

I especially like the Acts verses. The Bible sure does help keep life and all it's complexities in perspective, doesn't it? Good post Alice!

I especially like the 1 Timothy 2 verse. We have been studying prayer for the past couple of months in our church too. Love the verses you posted here.

Enjoyed this post and the lovely flowers, Alice. I've been trying to reconnect as a follower as I discontinued by accident. Sometimes computer stuff boggles my mind!
