Phather Phil’s Prayer
Heavenly Father, slow but surly the day light is getting shorter as we head to the darkness of December. Oh! How sad December would be if we had no knowledge of Spring or in life if we had no knowledge of You and
heaven. In life we experience the bright times and the dark times. In the dark times we can turn to You. You are to us like the promise of Spring. We can turn to You to shed Your light on our dark times. We stand in utter
amazement of Your love for us and the certainty of Your word and forever give You praise and honor for what You done for us. Amen!
