Almighty God, how You have blessed us!
How blessed we are to have warm, comfy beds and a peaceful night’s sleep.
How blessed we are to wake to a land of outrageous abundance.
How blessed we are to have friends and experiences across this nation, around this globe.
How blessed we are to have You as our God, loving and merciful and just.
How blessed we are to have courageous spouses defending our country.
How blessed we are to serve a God who sends us flowers, peacocks of the richest colors, baby elephants to make us laugh, butterflies to spark our wonder.
How blessed we are that You hear our prayers.
And so, Lord, we ask boldly:
Please be with us in this time of PCSing;
watch over all these moving people;
help us with all these details.
Please be with us when we are the ones not moving, the ones left.
Draw us closer to You, the unchanging One.
Please help us encourage our warriors.
Teach us to be brave because of Your strength.
Please help us to keep opening our hearts,
keep loving, keep starting new friendships,
keep reaching out even when we’re hurt,
keep reaching out even when we’re comfortable.
Father, don’t let us be so busy we miss Your leading.
May every activity be done for You.
May we feel Your joy when we laugh,
know Your embrace when we cry,
turn our face to You always.
How blessed we are Lord.
Help us to bless others.
