Prayer - Up To Know Good on Monday

Up To Know Good on Monday

August 28, 2006

Sack of potatoes

As I walked through the grocery store, I looked at the sale tags, my list, and my stack of coupons. Finances had been tight, and I was trying to buy groceries with a third of my normal budget. Feeling stressed, I walked through the produce section debating about what and how much should go in my cart. As I picked up each item, I prayed, “Should I get this, God?” As I reached for some potatoes and silently said my prayer, I realized that this was the lesson God wanted to teach me. Pray about everything, even potatoes!

Do Good - As soon as you feel stressed today, stop and pray for help. Also, when something in your day goes well, say a prayer of thanks!

Though my stress didn’t disappear right away, I was able to realize on another level how much God wants to be a part of EVERYTHING in our lives. What a great feeling to have Him intimately involved, even with my grocery shopping.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” Ephesians 6:18a. Click here to read more.

Jesus, thanks that You want to be a part of all areas of our lives. We invite You in today through our prayers.

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
