Monday prayer

The back of the castle Ravenwood in Hocking Hills where we stayed one night last week.  The statue is in the middle of a maze of bushes.  The part in the middle of the castle here is the sunroom off the big dining hall.  We ate our breakfast in the sunroom.

Teachers' inservice begins for me.  So I will be working this Monday. All staff (elementary, middle school, and high school) will be together for the first time since the teachers' last day. 

                                                     Here is Monday's prayer.

                                        "When I Need to Stand Strong in Times of Weakness"
Dear God,
            I thank You that You give me the strength I need to live through each day and to face all that I must face.  The greatest thing I face today is nothing in light of Your ability to do miracles in it.  Strengthen me by the power of Your Spirit to stand strong and courageous in the midst of intimidating situations.  Give me the power to rise above all opposition and any fear I have as I look toward the challenges in my life right now.
Thank You that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

  1. Beautiful prayer! I hope you have a wonderful and rewarding school year! I remember the challenges of a new year, new classes, and getting settled in a back-to-school routine. Hope your transition is a smooth one!

  2. Love this prayer. Especially this part:

    "The greatest thing I face today is nothing in light of Your ability to do miracles in it."

    I will be praying for you as you go back to school tomorrow. And thanks for your prayers - I felt a bit better today.
