From the Prayer Corner- Making More Time for God


Heavenly Father, every year, You make sure we know that a new beginning is arriving with the new sounds of nature, the blooming flowers, the warmer air, and the greener hills and valleys. All of this comes at the perfect time to celebrate Your glorious resurrection and the love You have for Your children. We ask that each day this month, You never let us forget to show our love for You in return, whether that is in time spent with You, or in service to others in Your Name. Help us to never put work, family, or ourselves before You. Help us to make more time every day for studying Your Word, praying, and worshiping You.


Along with new beginnings, Springtime is also a metaphor for change. Some changes we eagerly await, and some we don’t. Some changes we plan for and others arrive uninvited. For all these changes we thank You that You are always with us, and we ask the gift of Your perspective beckoning us to expectation, hope, transformation, and rebirth.


May the warmer sunlight and the refreshing rain of this Springtime be reminders that You are at work renewing the earth. And as a God of renewal, we thank You that You are always at work in our lives, changing and renewing us too. Open our eyes especially to our need to spend more time with You. Awaken us to new life, new beginnings, and Your perspective.  In Jesus’s name, we pray. Amen.

For Flowers That Bloom

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

For blue of stream and blue of sky;
For pleasant shade of branches high;
For fragrant air and cooling breeze;
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
