I believe in prayer; you’ve probably noticed that here if you’ve been around much. God has a purpose in prayer and things happen when people pray. I’ve been a witness to that time and time again in my own life, as well as the lives of others.
Last week , I sent out a message to my friend, Stacy, who just moved away recently. For the last few years, she’s been a faithful prayer friend to me, coming to prayer meetings at my house and attending local Bible studies at my church. We’ve prayed many prayers for each other and frankly, I just found myself missing her greatly. Now I know she is only a text or facetime or skype away. But missing her prompted more thoughts on the importance of prayer.
Then I saw my friend, Darlene’s, blog post about how her book will be releasing to the world and she finds herself in need of prayer. Oh, I sure am praying for her. It’s a scary feeling to pour your heart and soul into writing a book and takes total reliance on God.
Then today I saw the If:Pray Information and I’m praying about how I might be involved in that endeavor.
With all those indicators, I’m making a call to prayer here on the blog. I want to take some time to really pray and seek God’s face. I just need to. For myself. For this book I’m writing. For the writing deadlines I’m facing. For God to have his total will and way in my life. For his direction and purpose to be completely clear. For my husband. For my kids. For some needs we have as a family.
And I want to pray for you. Your needs. Your direction. Your spouse. Your children. Whatever it is that you feel like asking prayer for, I want to pray.
Call it an online prayer meeting if you wish, but I’d love to see your prayers or prayer requests or both in the comments.
Would you pray with me today?
Bloggers, it’s still Whimsical Wednesday and I’d love to have you both link up to the party and leave a prayer request or prayer as you feel led!
