 Day 81: Prayer

Day 81: Prayer

Tonight's sermon was about this prayer: The Lords Prayer.

I hadn't anticipated sharing my Lords Prayer story when the Pastor asked for examples of memorable prayer experiences with this prayer.  But, the stoic Lutheran silence went a little too long for me and I stood and shared my story. 

It was one of her last coherent days.  The Hospice Nurse stood, and I sat on her bed. We prayed this prayer.  I knew it was probably one of the last times she would say it.  I knew before too long, I would be Motherless. I knew in that moment God was with us and she was not afraid.
