Praying for Your Family - 21. Gorgeous Days

The next few prayers will center around being reminded by the weather to pray for our families.  The weather is something that affects most of us, whether we spend much time outside or not.  I check the weather app on my phone frequently to plan for how to dress myself and the kids as we spend as much time outside as possible right now. We are all subject to changing season temperatures and a wide variety of different weather patterns if you live in a location that experiences the 4 seasons.  If you live in a climate without that much variation, perhaps seeing these types of weather on a TV show or hearing about them on the news could prompt you to pray.

We will start with the best of days, in my humble opinion, the ones where you feel like the whole world is just absolutely gorgeous!  Autumn is my favorite season, and the flaming colors of the trees, combined with the deep blue sky, set my heart to sing His Grace.

Grace is the unmerited favor we have with God, only because of Jesus Christ. Grace is the gift of God we do not deserve and cannot earn - that is why it is 'freely given' and 'freely received.' Grace is the only way any of us can get to know God! Grace is something we have all received in abundance, and yet we struggle to give to others.

Gorgeous Days - Grace 

Hey Jesus, 

Thank you for this gorgeous day! Help me remember to give grace to my family in all situations. Show my husband how much grace you've given him, and help him to respond to our family, our church family, and everyone with whom he comes into contact, with a heart full of grace and mercy.  Help my children to understand when we show them grace, although they deserve consequences.  Help us all to know and truly allow your grace to be sufficient for us.  Remind us to give more grace than we receive, and never forget how much grace you have shown us. In Jesus' Name,
