Prayer for the week.
I usually include the Prayer for the Week in Monday Morning Meanderings but since I didn’t get it out till Tuesday, I was in a hurry and forgot to include it so for those of you who enjoy these prayers and those of you who might find them helpful for your prayer life, here it is:
O God, the protector of all who trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy; Increase and multiply upon all your faithful people your mercy; that with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen (From Divine Hours. Prayers for summertime. Get it here)
An answer to this prayer and the implantation of this desire in our hearts is the need of the hour for all of us who choose to follow the Master.
We are off this morning to Creede, Colorado of some time with my brother and sister in law. They have a fifth wheel too, though they don’t live in it full time. We will spend some time fishing the Rio Grande River which has it’s beginnings in these mountains. It will be a new river for me but I think it is the same as anywhere else, find the right flies, present it right and the fish will be interested.
More on Creede tomorrow.
