I decided to type out my nightly prayer tonight just as I said it in my head:
Thank you for this day. Thank you for all you have given me. Thank you for my house, a warm bed, food to eat, and clean water. Thank you for giving me to the family that you did. Thank you for clothes to wear, and everything you have blessed me with. I do not deserve any of it. Thank you for my schooling, and the opportunity I have been given to get my RN.
God, I pray for my aunt, and I hope her surgeries went well today. I hope she will be able to walk again and can come back from this. I pray for my dad’s mom and dad, you know their situation better than I do, but please help them. I pray for Gran and Bill, I pray that they stay healthy. Please don’t let Gran have Alzheimer’s, God. Please. I pray that the hair test comes back negative. I pray for everyone sleeping under a pile a garbage just to stay warm tonight. I pray for everyone all over the world that is hungry tonight with no food to eat.
Lastly, I pray for myself. I pray that you will make me more childlike in my relationship with you. I pray that you will keep me on the right track in life. Also, I pray that I can enjoy life and reduce my anxiety, and not take everything so seriously. Please use me to change the world, even if it is the world of one person. I see what is happening to people and it really bothers me. I don’t know what I can do, but you do.
I think that’s all I can think of. Love you.
In your name I pray Lord,
