The shifting sands of time and the quiet whistling of the wind reminds us that You are the constant in all of our lives. You are the rock of of our salvation, Oh God, our Heavenly Father. We are seeking the spirit of your presence and the power of your embrace. Hover over us and spread your wings of protection around us as we make our journey through life to a distant shore. We are mindful of those among us who need our prayers. We celebrate with those among us who praise your name forevermore. You are a great and awesome God, your wonders to behold. We continue to celebrate the rich legacy and heritage to which we are all heirs. Work in us as you worked in them reclaiming and reconciling the world unto yourself. We pray for a consistent walk. We pray for a faithful walk. We pray that you will find us worthy of being called children of the Most High God. In all of our prayers and in all of our living, we are thankful that you stick closer to us than a brother or sister. In times like these, we need a Savior; in times like these we need an anchor. May our anchor grip the solid rock of Jesus. Amen.
