Yesterday, May 5, was the National Day of Prayer in our country – an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May that encourages people of all faiths to pray for our nation. This same day was also the celebration of Cinco de Mayo, the remembrance of a Mexican victory in 1862, complete with all kinds of good food.
Which event got the most attention? I had to remind myself that my prayers for our country and people were of more importance than filling my stomach with tasty food. There are so many needs in our nation and the world today. Let us remember to look to our Heavenly Father for the answers and read His word daily for the encouragement we need. 2 Chronicles 7:14
