And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Idleness

Father, remind me to keep away from any brother or sister who lives an undisciplined life. For I know myself how I must imitate my spiritual elders, because they did not behave without discipline around me. I see and hear that some around me are living an undisciplined life, not doing their own work but meddling in the work of others. I have been one of these people. But I must not grow weary in doing what is right. Remind me that the idle person is not my enemy and is still your child, deserving of all forgiveness in my Lord Jesus Christ. It is in that matchless name I petition my holy God. Amen.

2 Thessalonians 3

Thank you for sharing your morning prayer and devotion with us, you have enough prayers collected to write a book. And Amen to your prayer...Good luck Chris on your gardening, if it was me that odd plant would in my mind be a weed, so it would have been plucked long ago! LOL I am posting my thought on here because your other blog is hard to comment on.
