Sharing & Caring With Friends

I’m Still Going to Pray, Pray, Pray

I must pray … daily … in the quiet moments of the day and sometimes even during the hustle and bustle… I am honored to pray … for my husband, family, my loved ones, friends and situations, and, of course, myself.

Why do I pray?  It’s almost like breathing … or eating… I must do it every day…. often.  As a “Christian”, I know I am commanded to pray, even though I don’t always feel like it.  And selfishly, it meets an emotional need for myself, so I do it for me, too.

“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” (Isaiah 65:24 NKJV)

If I care for someone… and if I am unable to help them in a “practical” way – I know the BEST thing I can offer them is my prayers.   Prayer can certainly succeed where other means fail!  And I have to believe that my prayers are helping even when I can’t see it!

And unanswered prayer… I know that God is sovereign and Almighty!   It’s not our job to question Him; it’s not our business.  He is in control, and it’s up to Him. God’s wisdom far exceeds my wisdom, that’s for sure!

I don’t care if I don’t always see the fruits of my labor… I am going to pray anyway … and often.

I love to put my family and friends on my “prayer list” and continually pray for them and/or their situation…. because again, this is the ONE thing I can do… when all else fails.  And often times, I have seen the impossible performed after prayer!

“In those days when you pray, I will listen.  If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me.”  (Jeremiah 29:12-13 NLT)

Prayer is such a beautiful communication with our Lord and Savior… my prayers are not eloquent – they are simple, straightforward prayers – because that’s me – that’s who I am.

I certainly don’t have all the answers…. but I know I am supposed to pray…and nothing will stop me from praying… for you …. and for me.

“Pray without ceasing…” (1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV)

I hope you will join me.

“Father, I hope you will bless the person reading this and stir in their hearts to seek you daily and to come to you often in prayer.”
