Read Matthew 21: 18-22
Whatever you ask for in prayer
with faith, you will receive.
I let a friend of mine borrow my horse, Norman. He
stayed with her for almost a year. When it was summer again
While Norman was away
I found out that I didn’t have
to tell my feelings just to a
horse; I could tell them to
God. I realized that God has
always been there for me and always will be, so I got baptized.
I wanted to improve my life and try to be like Christ.
I knew that the Holy Spirit would tell me when it was my
time to be baptized. I know I won’t be perfect like God, but
I want to try my best. We can all listen for God and for the
whisper of the Holy Spirit to learn how to grow in our faith
and deepen our relationship with God.
Prayer: Dear Father, thank you for listening to our prayers.
Be with us and help us encourage others to find their path
to you. We pray as Jesus taught us, saying, “Father, hallowed
be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our
daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone
who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation” (Luke
11: 2-4, niv). Amen.
