A Prayer For Today…

On Being Grateful This Day 

“Oh, Lord, I totally realize there’s trouble in the world — just as you said there would be.  Even in knowing that, however,  I ask for you to enable me today to take in the many, many things for which I could be grateful.  Enlighten my eyes to see and my spirit to respond to you in loving gratefulness, worship and praise — today… now… in my world. In Jesus’ Name Amen!”

The practice of seeing through the eyes of grace
and responding in kind to what I see.

Following about a three year search for God, Lee trusted Christ as Savior in 1967 as young Marine. He has served as an outreach pastor and a church planter. The Lord also led him to serve as the Director of Internships at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA where he served for over 20 years. Lee loves to write, has a strong desire to be a positive influence for Christ in our world, and is passionate about family. And speaking of family, he and his wife Sherry (who served as a Director of Elementary Education for many years and recently retired) praise the Lord for being married 44 years, their 3 daughters and son-laws, and 7 grandchildren! Lee and Sherry would say: "We've been abundantly blessed."
