A prayer for today: O God, I am grateful that you have given me life in this country where I am able to worship you in safety.  I pray that you will bless our whole nation with a stronger moral sense and a deeper concern for those in need. Show me how to be a good disciple of Jesus and a good citizen at the same time.  I pray that your healing light will shine within Jim Mitchell and Lola Shady and upon all who are sick or sad.  I pray these things in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
