WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for yesterday, today and tomorrow by Marty Martel
Please add to your prayers and prayer lines, a dear friend of mine and of all the country music industry, Les Leverett. His daughter advised me that Les was in the hospital with health issues, and I lost the information somehow and did not include it in my Thought for the Day, and I am sorry. Les has been so instrumental as one of the great photographers in our music industry, and I know that our prayers will see him through his health issues.
Also, it is important to keep Penny DeHaven in our prayers and prayer lines as she battles her health issues. Thank you.
Prayer to Grow Closer to God
Dear Lord, I am trying to do better and better each day;
I am trying to walk with you and do your will, but sometimes
It seems like I am slipping backwards no matter how hard I try.
And I get confused sometimes; even if I want to do the right thing,
I don’t always know what it is. So this is my prayer, heavenly Lord,
For your help in straightening out my mind and straightening out my life.
Lead me, Lord, and let your Holy Spirit guide me.
Even if the correction is painful, help me to keep my mind open to your truth.
Let me do your will in my every action, and know your will,
That I might do it. Help me not be deceived by false assertions or glib intelligence,
By those who would excuse or promote sinful actions, by those who simply do not know;
And above all, help me not to deceive myself. Guide me away from excuses
And rationalizations when I have sinned, but into your holy truth,
That I might know my sin, and correct what I can, and ask forgiveness for what I cannot.
By the grace and mercy of holy Christ, I ask this.
If you have anyone you would like to send a prayer out to please mail them to
for inclusion in to WHISNews21 weekly prayer line initiated by Marty Martel
