When You’re in the Middle You Need to Pray

Today I am joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday:  We write fast and free, for five minutes flat. The prompt is MIDDLE.

Middle of the Grandchildren

In the photo above my husband and I are sitting in the middle of our grandchildren. This is a wonderful place.

In our extended family we are in the middle of youth and aging. My mother is gradually drifting away as dementia progresses. This is hard. Our family is facing change.

As a nation we are in the middle, between the current administration and the next.   Next week we will have a new president, but divisiveness in our country continues.   We are in a period of change. How will it work out?

There is bright spot. The new administration is planning to take a careful look at the controversial issue of vaccines. As a grandmother (and nurse) I am concerned about the health of children. I am encouraged that Robert Kennedy Jr. will be leading a commission on vaccine safety.     Vaccines have their place, but are children receiving too many, too soon?

You can read about my experience and concern regarding the MMR here.

In all periods of change we need to pray for wisdom, pray for our families, pray for our nation, pray for our government leaders.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
