Prayers for the Week – Mixing Camp and God!

mdod-prayers of the week

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Prayers for the Week! Today we are celebrating the successful conclusion to our daughter’s first sleep-away camp! She had a great time at camp, and already plans to go next year too!

In addition to that huge praise, where Sophie not only had fun, but learned some great things about God at the same time, my Mom, Sister, and Niece were visiting, and they left for home yesterday after a nice visit. They made it home safely, so thank you God for seeing them through several July 4th issues!

Lord, I also want to thank you for the wonderful Independence Day that we celebrated on Thursday in the United States. It was a great day here, and we really enjoyed celebrating the birth of our nation, and pray that with your help, God, we would continue to be one nation, Under God, and that you would put the type of leaders in place that love You, fear You, and rely on You for guidance!

My Dreams of Disney reader Laurie had left this comment on Facebook, it sure sounds like a praise to me! Here is what she wrote:

HUG TIGHT, got my home even if I need things fixed it is awesome. Miracle the horse is better, and Team Sarah is doing well. Thank you for your prayers. Now for 3 weeks in Ohio, a trip to end trips.

Lord, we also have some prayer requests, though, that I want to highlight with you and lift up to you at this time. Please, everyone, pray for these people so they might have Peace.

  • Lord, we lift up the families of the people on the airline flight that crashed in San Francisco yesterday, and know that You are keeping them close to You so that they might have your comfort, strength, and peace.
  • My friend Theresa needs our prayers for her, her daughters, and the rest of her family. Here is what she wrote on Facebook:Sad day today. My girls lost their grandmother yesterday. She was an amazing woman who was so good to my girls and did so much for them. My heart breaks for Kym and Lorrie but also for the entire family. Everyone, hug your family a little closer and remember to tell them you love them. At the end of the day, you won’t hear people say “I wish I spent less time with my loved ones”, it’s always “I wish I had just one more day”.Please pray for them, for their peace, comfort, and strength in the days ahead. Thanks everyone!
  • My sister-in-law Kim needs prayers. Here is what she wrote concerning her Mema:“Praying for my Mema this morning who is getting ready to have back surgery. Praying that both doctors got a good nights sleep and that their hands be led by God today with no complications. Praying peace for her as having the surgery was a difficult decision considering ” who would take care of Grandaddy”. God answered that prayer and his brother is here from KY, with no date set to leave. God is good. Love you Mema!”An update is that she came out of the surgery and is doing well, so keep praying, but praises as well are in order. Thank you everyone!

If you have any prayer requests this week, please comment and include them, and thanks for praying for these! May God Bless You and Keep You, and may He guide your path, and the path of all of us, and our Country, so that we may know His Will and Direction! Amen.

Happy Independence Day, America!

Our nation was grown on the blood, sweat, and tears of many men and women throughout it’s history.  My prayer is that we, as a nation, may remember that commitment that once existed, and work together, side by side, regardless of party or political affiliation, and return our country to the greatness that I know it can achieve.
