Positive Thought #3

Of late I have found it hard to stay positive. Those on social media (which is both a wonderful and awful place just now) may have picked up on that if they saw the rant about some things. I'm reserving this space on my blog for something positive. So whilst undeniably it is not all sunshine and rainbows all the time we or at least I need to find at least one positive thing each day.

My light in the darkness for today is this -

Whilst washing hands so much drys the skin (especially for health care professionals with soft skin) and the birthday song is now a song constantly stuck in our heads, there is now lots of times a day we can use to not only get physically clean, but also pray. I had an idea to replace the birthday song with The Lord's prayer (as long as you do it enough times to cover the correct amount of time required).

This prayer is my positive thing for for today. When I know not what to pray or how to pray I say:

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

9 After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

We who are of the faith have a great opportunity to pray and in so doing reaffirm our faith or calling and also see God move even as the world is engulfed by trial.

Philippians 4:5-7 (ESV)

"Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
