I'm Thankful for Prayer

Because sometimes I lose things. Keys, ear buds, phone. Small things, but I'm always heard.

Because I have much and am thankful for a medium in which to express my gratitude.

Because I know I am heard.

Because when a school collapses in Haiti or people flee from their homes in the Democratic Republic of Congo from advancing troops I feel like I should do something. Because my heart hurts for people I've never met and it's not practical or probable to travel there myself to help. And even if I did, what would I do? Because I'm safe in my warm home, no troops advancing toward me with malice. Schools here are built steady and sure. So I'm grateful for prayer so I can send my heart toward heaven to help alleviate suffering. Even if it's small, it's still significant in my mind. Because He always hears me.

I'm thankful for prayer because, well, you know why. I'm getting kind of scared for my girl & it's the only thing that gets me through.

On another note, Fat Stans were a hit in my house, and with my primary class! Thanks!
