Grant me the peace
To understand your beauty
To appreciate your gift
That I may be free.
Grant to me to accept
That each day is new
That each day is an opportunity
To live fully within your graces.
Grant me to live each hour
Knowing that I am yours
To be trusting within your light
That I may see beyond the worldly greed.
Grant me the will to relinquish
All my goods to You Oh Lord
For all that is
Was yours to give.
"Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape
your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.
Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together
for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens
when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG)
Encouraging Bible Verses
"Prayer is not a substitute for work, thinking, watching, suffering, or giving; prayer is a support for all other efforts."
God bless my kitchen as your own
Where I love to be
Bless me as I prepare
Food for my family and friends
Who grace my house.
May the meals that I prepare
Be received with your blessing
For it is You Oh Lord
Who make all things I do possible.
Your boundless grace I seek today
With your help I cook and clean
Forever more my thanks to you.
