May 6th is the National Day of Prayer. What a privilege we have to come to our heavenly Father in prayer anytime we want. He is always there, always listening, always ready and willing to help. He knows what we need before we ask and showers us with blessings we often don’t recognize. Take some time this month to thank God for just some of the gifts he has poured out and ask him to help you grow in appreciation and gratitude for his goodness to you.
