Prayer of Thanks

Last night, during the storm, I prayed for the safety of my family and the safety of Coffeyville. After driving over to look at the church this morning and only seeing what looks like very minimal damage to the town given the amount of noise and fury that was unleashed last night, I’m giving thanks to God. Sometimes it seems petty to pray so, and yet I’m confident that God wants such prayers. It’s not just the high minded, disinterested prayers that we pray on behalf of others that God desires.
