A Prayer

(This is Day 5 of my Journaling through January series)

Day 5: Look at what you wrote yesterday. Now write down a prayer to God asking Him to take away your fear and fill you with His peace.

Hmmm, I've never written down a prayer before. But ever since reading The Help, I like the thought of it. Many prophets in the scriptures recorded their prayers. It feels a bit strange to write it down, but if they thought it was important to write down their prayers sometimes, it is probably good for me to do it sometimes, too. So here goes:

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank Thee that our family has the opportunity and blessing to save and do good things with the resources Thou hast given us. I pray that I can approach these goals without trepidation or gloomy thoughts. Please help me remember that Thou art with us as we strive to accomplish these worthy goals, that Thou canst do all things, and that through Thee, I can be strong. Please help me to be at peace, and give no place to fear in my heart. When we review our progress each month, help me to be cheered and comforted, and to see the blessings given by Thy provident hand. In Thy Son's name I pray, Amen.

  2. Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! New follower of your blog, too!

  3. While studying the gospel, I have never once thought about the fact that there are many prayers recorded in scripture. Personally, "writing down a prayer to God" seems unusual and feels "odd", but how grateful I am for those who have. Thank you for sharing your beautiful prayer to God.
