Today, as it is the first Thursday of May, is the nationally-recognized National Day of Prayer.
Personally, I am still surprised that our nation, in all its political correctness and attempt to separate church and state, still allows this day to be observed.

Take a moment from the noise and business of life…embrase solitude and silence…reflect on life.
I am thankful for this day and will truly give thanks to God today for all that He has given me and what He has in store for me. However, prayer is more than a once a year tradition…I choose to follow the words to the Lord:
