On my knees

Dear Lord,

On this National Day of Prayer, I am so very grateful for those You have placed in my life on this Earthly journey.  May You shower them with love, peace and self-acceptance.  Show us all how to be kind to one another and find our strength through Your grace.


The National Day of Prayer (NDP) is an annual event for Americans of all faiths to take time to pray for our nation and its leaders. The NDP was established by an act of Congress as a day to call the entire nation to prayer. The NDP Task Force focuses specifically on promoting the need to pray for our nation and those in positions of cultural influence. National days of prayer have been called as early as 1775, with the First Continental Congress. Abraham Lincoln also called for such a day in 1863. The NDP as an annual event was established by a Joint resolution of Congress in 1952, and signed into law by President Truman. The law was amended in 1988 and signed by President Reagan to be the first Thursday of May each year.

And yet they say politics and religion do not mix!?
