I Prayed Today!

Today, I prayed! I prayed because it is Wednesday--and I have a very long list of friends on my Wednesday prayer list. I prayed today because today my friend, John Dobbs, is hurting once again. I prayed today because my mind is thinking about my Dad and the struggles ahead of him and the faith he and my brother and I are placing in the hands of his physicians. I prayed today because while I am not sure what the future holds for six of the most wonderful grandchildren in the world, I prayed they would know how loved they are, every hour, every minute, everyday. I prayed today for our country and the struggles that we as a nation will face as everyone adjusts to the new president. I prayed today because work has been extremely taxing, working an extra 28-35 hours every two weeks is hard on an old woman! I prayed today because tonight I got to be with my church family, I thanked God for them and the encouragement they give me. I prayed today thanking God for the love and patience of my friends in the blog world.
I prayed today because God says its okay for me to talk to Him about everything and anything!

I have been chosing a psalm as my prayer a few days ago, since I was missing own word - but oh, what power prayer has!

Love, Helen

Thank you for sharing this with us all. I am praying! I believe God desires us to do so. I hope you feel the strength that only the Almight can give. Remember God is active and continually works in our lives. He give us renewal and strength when we need it most. I hope you have a great week Neva. I love you sis and know God is going to give all believers what is best for them. Just look at the entire Bible and see what God has done and continues to do even today.

It's my first time here and I thought I'd say hi!

What a beautiful post this is and a great reminder of the power of prayer. "Pray without ceasing" the Bible says, that just about says it all.

Many sweet blessings!

I too am a week late - have been praying, nevertheless. You know my heart's prayers for you, beloved Neva, for our prodigals and right now especially for your dad. I'm so thankful you have wrapped all y'all in the arms of God in prayer. You know He is there, and when we close our eyes in prayer, we feel His constant presence. I'm so happy you let Him hug you, that you let Him love you. Whatever the next days hold, He is holding you and your loved ones. Praise Him and His Holy Name!!

Love you, dear Neva and I prayed this morning for you too.

In His love, grace and mercy - K
