July 12

The house we moved to had no grass, it was all landscaping plants, and mulch, but my husband feels that he must have grass, I guess it’s a man thing. We raked out the mulch, and pulled up the plants, and laid sod, mind you, it’s not very much area, but at least he’s getting some grass. You wouldn’t think that grass could make a difference, but after he put down the sod, it seemed like the temperature cooled. It sure looks better getting the mulch out of there and bringing in something living, plus, it makes me happy having beautiful things around me. Sometimes you need to modify your actions, and move away from the ordinary. If you keep repeating yourself, but you aren’t getting the results you want, change it up. A small alteration can make a considerable difference. I have prayed the Lord’s Prayer daily, nearly my entire life, now I’ve improved it a bit, and added other scriptures. Before I ever begin studying the Bible, I pray the scriptures. I encourage you to add God’s words to your prayers; it’s like raking up the mulch, and laying down grass, it adds something living to your prayer life.

“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Matthew 6:7-13
