Daily Prayer for July 31st, 2014 

Above all others, may couples just starting out seek the blessing of their Almighty Father, we pray

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? Say yes, say yes ’cause I need to know. You say I’ll never get your blessing ’til the day I die; Tough luck, my friend, but the answer is ‘No.’ Why you gotta be so rude? Don’t you know I’m human too? I’m gonna marry her anyway.

– Lyrics from Magic’s
Rude

Daily Prayer for July 29th, 2014 

For those transitioning to adulthood, and those helping them along the way, we pray

Don’t go crying to your mama ’cause you’re on your own in the real world. Ain’t it fun, ain’t it fun: Baby, now you’re one of us. Ain’t it fun, ain’t it fun: living in the real world.

– Lyrics from Paramore’s
Ain’t it fun

Daily Prayer for July 28th, 2014 

For the quiet ones, we pray

A species in which everyone was General Patton would not succeed, any more than would a race in which everyone was Vincent Van Gogh. I prefer to think that the planet needs athletes, philosophers, sex symbols, painters, scientists; it needs the warmhearted, the coldhearted and the weakhearted. It needs those who can devote their lives to studying how many droplets of water are secreted by the salivary glands of dogs under which circumstances, and it needs those who can capture the passing impression of cherry blossoms in a fourteen-syllable poem or devote twenty-five pages to the dissection of a small boy’s feelings as he lies in bed in the dark waiting for his mother to kiss him goodnight.

Daily Prayer for July 25th, 2014 

Lord, help me to understand that my temperament, as well as those I will come in contact with today, is a gift from you

Sometimes we miss the obvious–and never is this truer than when it comes to dealing with ourselves. Mood swings, emotional reactions, ups and downs, knee-jerk responses, and apparently incorrigible behavioral ruts are the cause of countless heartaches and frustrations with ourselves and others.

– Father Thomas Berg, L.C., M.A., Ph.D. from

Daily Prayer for July 24th, 2014 

Let us give thanks for the one constant in life: a God who knows us

There’s global competition, technology changes, more regulations than ever before. It’s just complicated. Things are harder today.

Daily Prayer for July 22nd, 2014 

Lord, protect those who feel they are in the fight of their lives, from that which they don’t’ see coming

I reflected back over the past several months. It was hard to believe that the broken leg, kidney stones, lost work, financial stress, three surgeries and the cancer scare had all happened in half a year’s time. I realized I had been feeling like I’d been in a fight. For months I’d had my guard up waiting for the next punch life could throw. Now, though, I felt completely relaxed. If I’d let my mind roll with that boxing metaphor a little longer, I might’ve followed it to its logical conclusion: In a boxing match, the fighters absorb some vicious blows because they’re ready for them. And usually, the knockout punch was the one they didn’t see coming.

Daily Prayer for July 21st, 2014 

May the knowledge that my prayers are being heard be enough to get me through this current obstacle

There is no guarantee that God will make wealthy those who obey Him in their business endeavors. What God does guarantee is an eternal profit with all temporal needs met.

Daily Prayer for July 18th, 2014 

Let us give thanks for the business relationships we’ve developed

If working a room is so much fun and so profitable, why do our hearts thump, our palms sweat and our eyes glaze over when we think about it? One reason is that 88 percent of us think of ourselves as shy.
