Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep ...

I pray the Lord my soul to keep...

Wait a minute, Lord. I'm confused.

Do I pray for wisdom to understand or courage to act? Do I pray for insight and words to counsel or patience to hold my tongue? Do I pray for strength to just endure or faith to push myself a little further each day? Do I pray for validation no matter the cost or do I just pray for peace? Do I pray to be deaf and blind to the adversary or do I pray for keener sight and sharper hearing to better help others? Do I pray to be protected from all harm and evil or do I pray for discernment to choose the right path?

Or do I just say "thanks"? I don’t know.

I think I'd better just pray for a hole in the crowd so Your hems might brush my fingertips.

  1. That kinda sounds like some of the turmoil going around in my head. Mainly in regards to Carter's big day and his dad's involvement, but some other non-related thoughts too. So if you get any insight please share! It does help to hear that I have family who is proud of me. I love you!
