Daily Prayer For A Child To Pray

Heavenly Father, I pray that you will forgive me for everything that I have done wrong. Lord help me to forgive anyone who may have hurt me and help anyone that I may have hurt or upset to forgive me.

Lord, help me to love others and do what You want me to do. Lord, help my family to be happy and love one another and not be sad or mad at each other. Dear Lord, please take care of my loved ones and protect and love them as they care for me. Please show my family how much You love them and that you will always be there for them. Teach us Lord to always come to You in prayer.

Lord, I pray for every member of my family and all of my friends to accept You into their hearts. Lord Jesus, heal the sick so they will live a long, happy and healthy life. Lord, keep every member of my family, principals, teachers, friends, classmates, and pets safe from any harm or evil. Help me Lord to get good grades in school. Lord, please protect the President, and all the leaders of our country and state, and their families.

Lord, keep our pastors, firemen, policemen, and all the soldiers, safe as they do their jobs. I pray for the poor and hungry that they will receive food so they won’t go to bed hungry tonight. Send people to help them and give them a place to sleep, and if they are sick please make them well and feel better. Lord I pray for the sick in the hospitals and prisons, please heal them, and tell them about Your Son, Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus, I ask you to bless everyone that I have prayed for today and send Your mighty angels to protect all of us and keep us safe.

In Jesus Name I pray.

Amen

What is Self-Care?

While the whole world stands still, one thing that is being suggested is self-care! But who knows what that means? How do you take care of yourself when times seem to be so unsure and stressful?

Self-care is when you take time to do something for you, even if it only lasts a few minutes. Self- Care is acknowledging that you too matter. Self-care is a moment in the day when you close the door to stress, tasks, and to-do’s and focus on the healing and uplifting of your mind, heart and spirit. It doesn’t have to complicated, just intentional.

 I want to shout out a helpful site called wholefully.com who gave a condensed list of some “stay at home” self-care ideas.

Things to do for self care:

  • Give myself a pedicure or a manicure.
  • Read a book or magazine for an hour.
  • Sit on the front porch. …
  • Take a bubble bath—complete with candles and calming music.
  • Pick or buy a bouquet of fresh flowers.
  • Take a leisurely walk without a goal.

It may be hard… but it’s not impossible!

I was speaking to my mentor this week and she really gave me a burst of inspiration. She told me that we all have the ability to be great, we have to simply stop making excuses. There are a million reasons why we haven’t kept our commitments (even to ourselves), whether it’s a workout plan, passion project, or even setting time aside every day to pray. There will always be a reasonable excuse to let you out of the very thing that you want to do for you.

I want to encourage you to throw away at least one excuse… today. Choose one task that has sat on the shelf and make the decision to hold on to it today. Take ahold of it today and make the time to start it. Don’t try to figure out how its going to be completed, just make the decision to start!

Let me know if this helps! Selah

New patterns New habits

This time in the home has allowed me to evaluate some of our family habits. The number one thing I noticed was our family’s diet. I have children who are 5 and 7 and somewhere  in the planet of parenting I decided that my children’s pickiness determined what we would have for meals and snacks… when in all actuality, I want health to be the priority. This transition of control was not a quick or obvious one, I didn’t notice before this quarantine that I had modified my selections for their preferences.

 So, what am I doing about it??? Simple, I have been slowly changing the pattern for our family. Through this quarantine in have ordered more fruits and veggies. Also, I have switched all of the regular chips for baked chips, these changes may seem small and insignificant to the average bear, but I have a plan. Small subtle changes allow my little geniuses time and appreciation for the new selection of snacks and meals. Instead of being alarmed… they are intrigued, and as a family we are creating better habits.

Have you noticed family habits that you haven’t before this quarantine? What are you going to do about it??

I’m still a CEO

This one is for my fellow CEO’s… I know that we are increasingly  concerned with the drastic changes in business, so I am here offing a tip for making this time at home a productive one. Closing doors also means closing pockets for the majority of us entrepreneurs around the world. I would like to offer tips to disrupt the stress and inspire you to see a benefit in this unpredictable time.

While everything is closed… this is an EXCELENT time for:

Development

  • While operating a business; as the owner there is not always time to keep up with the latest changes and  information concerning your field whether it be equipment, knowledge of the industry, or creative ways you can expand your business. Now is the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and do some research. Studying your industry during this down time will allow you to blossom from this crisis as a more knowledgeable and effective member in your business.

Work on your Social Media Presence

  • We all have things that we can improve on. This is the perfect time to watch a few free YouTube videos that teach you how to convey a clear message on social media and then implement them. Social media has everything to do with being intentional and dedicating time in order to be effective. It’s a good thing that time is one the one thing we have in abundance during this crisis.

Selah…Please let me know if these tips help you.

Losing Track of Time

Does anyone else feel as if they are on the movie Groundhog Day? I am literally confusing time and forgetting the difference between one day and the next. So, this conundrum had me thinking… how can I make every day one of passion and fulfillment. How can I separate time and feel like a productive member of society even though I cannot literally be in society right now? Here is what I came up with … let me know if this helps you too.

  • Make my bed: making my bed helps me feel accomplished. It tells my mind and surroundings that the time for rest is over.
  • Doing a home workout: I have picked a few days out of the week to do a workout from YouTube. This will not only refresh your body and mind, but it will give you something to look forward to.
  • Hobby: I know there has to be something you said you would do if you had more time. Well guess what ladies and gentlemen… you now have the time! So break out the yarn, color paper, scrapbook or something that is fun and enjoy yourself.

Let me know if these tips help break the week up into enjoyable moments. Selah!
