How I thank You heavenly Father for my dear, dear grandmother. She has always been such a special support and encouragement to me, especially as I was growing up and finding out about life and living… and Lord, she has given me so much of her gentle wisdom and good advice… never being judgemental, but always fair and kind.
Thank You for the wonderful example she has been throughout my life of a godly woman who loves Jesus first and foremost, and for the unique way that she lovingly gently nudges me to turn to You, in all the circumstances of my life. Thank You for placing her in my life. Thank You that I have had the opportunity of learning so much from her – for her knowledge of the Scriptures and her delight to turn to You in pray, day by day.
Lord now that she is getting older, I pray that You would keep Your loving arms around her and protect her from harm. Guard and guide her – protect her and provide all that she needs and draw here ever closer to Yourself – in Jesus name I pray,
“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.”
“I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.”
“I thank God, whom I serve from my
forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;”
“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,”
“I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,”
“I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;”
“First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.”
“I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:”
