This is so me! Will respond as soon as I get off this Red Cross call
Five minute break for coffee...Did you know Americans volunteer more than virtually any other country in the world? It is one of the things about our country that make it stand out in a positive way. We're not perfect, but most of us are dedicated to working to make life better for our communities.
Volunteering is a label any of us can wear; so many sizes, options, and variety that no matter what your limitations are you can find one that fits if you so desire. Personally, I get so much more out of what I do than what I give that I can't imagine not being a part of it.

I have no doubt that you have volunteered to lead from the front as a leader of your family, informal groups of friends, and organizations you have been assigned as a leader. I expect that many people have benefited from you volunteering your time, talents, and treasures over the years. No doubt that you have inspired family members, friends, and those you lead to volunteer their help based on your example. I expect you demonstrate moral courage, commitment to those you are responsible for, and setting a good example and you are increasingly walking the talk. ‘Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ [Philippians 2:3-4 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown

I pray that YOU bless each adopted son and daughter who reads this prayer with sufficient initiative and endurance and fruit of the Spirit faithfulness, self-control of agape love. I hope that you and I will always take initiative to bless others with our time, talents and treasure in ways that are both appreciated and useful for time and eternity. Let us always remember to treat others as new would like to be treated. I expect you stand up for other people who are susceptible to being taken advantage of. No doubt that you have inspired family members, friends, and those you lead to volunteer their help based on your example. I expect you demonstrate moral courage, commitment to those you are responsible for, and setting a good example and you are increasingly walking the talk. 'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. [1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV]

I lift volunteer firemen and women, EMT volunteers, volunteers who assist the homeless in soup kitchens and on the streets, volunteers who help rebuild communities after disaster strikes, and volunteers in health care. I pray that YOU bless each one with a large measure of endurance in doing well, an increase of compassion and a large measure of joy in fulfilling their labor of love. I pray that YOU motivate many to thank them. I am sure LORD that YOU will reward these selfless works which demonstrate love in time and eternity. 'In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.'[ Matthew 7:12]]

I lift up widows [SPC Diana Dobbs, Maj Joan Marine, MSgt Gloria Vance, Diana Kuzinski, Barbara Reynolds, Crystal Von Rosenberg, Teresa Brandon, Peggy Dunlap] widowers [Po2 Jeffrey Goggin, CSM Charles Hayden, Sgt Mark Anderson, LTC D Wayne Gregory, MSGT Dave Hoffman, and MSG Joseph Christofaro] and orphans to YOU LORD. I pray that YOU bless each with spontaneous joy, enduring peace, and ability to sleep peacefully as YOU enable each one to grieve to completion. 'Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.' [James 1:27 ESV]

LORD, I pray that YOUR adopted sons and daughters who are elected or appointed officials understand their purpose implicitly. I pray they demonstrate love across the aisle to their fellow brothers and sister-in-Christ. Let YOUR light shine on fellowship and inspire others to be respectful to those they disagree with. 'Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Outdo yourselves in honoring one another. Do not let your zeal subside; keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, persistent in prayer. Share with the saints who are in need. Practice hospitality.' Romans 12:10-13 ESV

I pray that you and your family members sleep well Tuesday night, and each will awake refreshed and healthy on Wednesday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ
