PRAYER Rx --- March 17
Dear Lord, we of today's society have allowed, or created, and sometimes abetted easy access to drugs, either by intent or by lack of attention. The resulting situation has made parenting one of today's most difficult tasks! ... Help us to realize that as citizens, and as Christians, we each have a responsibility, through our prayers and our actions, to change this situation. ... Oftentimes, Lord, when we pray for guidance You send it in ways we are apt to miss! ... However, we pray that You will give parents wisdom, understanding, love, strength, and even tough-love when needed for discipline. Help them, Lord, to stay the course, for the life of a son or a daughter is precious to You, to their parents, and to all of us, for our youth will shape the future of our nation.
In Jesus' name we pray.
