So, today’s post is going to be a little bit different.
Tomorrow, I’m going to set my goals for the month of July…and one of them has to do with prayer.
Every day, I get prayer requests emailed to me. Most of the time, they have to do with infertility or adoption…but sometimes, they have to do with other things too. I pray for each and every person who emails me. My heart sincerely breaks for so many people out there that are really going through hard times. Let’s face it…at some point, each of us has gone through something really hard or will go through something really hard. In this life…it’s inevitable.
My goal this month is to pray more. I really want to set aside time every day to really focus and pray above and beyond my normal prayers for those of you out there that are really struggling. When I was thinking about this goal, I thought about how there are many, many, many of you out there who are prayer warriors too. You love the Lord and love praying for others, so I’m inviting you to do this with me. Today, I’m asking for prayer requests…not just for me to pray over but for others of you out there to pray over too. In Matthew 18:20, Jesus clearly states that “when two or more are gathered in my name, I am there with them”.
My promise is to pray over each prayer request before I publish it and then to daily go back this month and continue to pray for you guys. I am…dare I say…prayerful…that those of you out there that spend time in God’s Word and in prayer daily, will also join me this month in praying over these requests too.
Right now, the biggest prayer request I have in my own life is Ashby. Ashby’s health problems are a lot more serious than we first expected. Right now, she is so happy and full of joy. She runs and plays and acts just like any other three year old would. Unfortunately, that could all change on a dime. My prayer is first and foremost for her heath. I pray she stays healthy. My second request is for one of these doctors to figure out the best treatment plan for her. They all seem very concerned and very stumped at the same time…not exactly the best combination. So, right now, that’s my biggest prayer request.
I’m praying for YOU this morning. I know there are a lot of hurting people out there. I know there are a lot of angry people out there. I’m praying for you (and I know in my heart that other believers who read my blog will be praying for you too). Please leave your prayer request in the comment section and we will be praying for you.
