Don’t put off connecting with your maker. It’s a wonderful act of mercy on our part to pray for those who are going to die this day, especially for those not in the state of grace. What a soothing feeling to realize our prayers are helping to save souls.
Excuse me if I sound like a broken record, but it’s so important for parents to teach their children to pray and of the spirituality that goes with that. If not, they may never make the move to bond with God, and get mixed up in the ways of the world and not be able to find their way back.
I’m writing this on Grandparents Day, but what exactly does that mean for us? I’d say, if we really love our grandchildren (and children) we must do what we can to expose them to God and prayer. We must not confine our prayers to only emergency situations such as the present hurricanes, floods, fires, and other natural disasters or the situation in North Korea (wake up America, before it’s too late). God desires that we connect with Him through all times, good and bad, every day.
Today would be our little five-month-old son Melvin’s birthday. He would be 50 years old, gone but not forgotten.
Our time quickly passes. We can’t stop Mr. Time but we can invest in him. Invest in prayer! You will notice the dividends, and one day in Heaven you will be paid in full. You will totally rejoice that you connected to God in prayer.
