Sunday Prayer

The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live. 1Timothy 2:1-3 The Message Bible

Dear Lord, help me live simply and quietly. 
Help our leaders in Washington do what is best for our great country. 
 Please help our daughter CC to adjust to a new year, to make friends, and to excel. 

joy and peace


  1. Such a lovely prayer Olive. Thank you for visiting and leaving your sweet comment. It makes my day! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. I look forward to your Sunday posts.

  3. Like the others, I really look forward to your Sunday prayers Olive. Thank you!

  4. "Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well" this one convicts me...not because I disagree with it or because I don't but because I feel strongly about yet find it hard to do because I am not sure how to do it.

  5. Olive, I do pray for our leaders. They absolutely need God's hand in their choices for us. Your beautiful CC will do well...But oh yes, I do pray for her and all the young people who go away from their homes and loved ones to study. Smiles to you, Susie

  6. I think this prayer is doubly important right now. Thanks for sharing it. Hope all is well with your family. Bye!


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
