This morning at church, Dr. Bob spoke about the fading tradition of Sunday afternoon supper. He remembered that growing up, Sunday afternoons at his house implied a big meal, guaranteed time with family and general fellowship around his house. He compared the Sunday supper to communion, and it struck a cord with me. This morning's sermon inspires tonight's prayer.
Thank you for our church and for Dr. Bob. Thank you that we feel at home there and that we have a community there. God, I pray tonight that you help us develop traditions in our home that give Caroline a sense of Christian values, of old American values. God please restore those values to our culture so that Caroline grows up in a country of people who care for each other, who believe in something.
