prayer list

So I have a confession. I have stopped posting on my prayer blog because I thought no one viewed it and prayed with me. SO selfish. Furthermore, the two gals who follow me I know without a doubt pray my requests. Even more important God totally put the blog on my heart and I'm being a self centered brat not to be faithful to do it.

So what got me thinking about it? Well, I have a dry erase board on my fridge that I jot down names/topics of prayer points I wouldn't usually pray for as a reminder to pray. And in a little bit more than a week's time frame I have changed three names I had been praying for to their families, because all three people went to be with Jesus. I'm elated to know these three people are dancing in Heaven, completely whole and healed. I am also devastated for their families. Only the Lord knows the beginning and end of our lives. But, I can't shake the impact prayer provides when we are challenged and obey. I'm certain the outcome for these three lives would remain. But, I'm certain my faith and others could have been set afire and transformed, because I've encountered it first hand.

I'd love for you to join the journey. But, I know now that's not important and my obedience is. I'd love to take prayer requests from you...for you...or others you love. I'd love for you to join me as a follower on that blog to pray for those I love, too. Either way God is gracious and his gentle prodding only instills that he is in control and I am not. And for that I am grateful!

"When Solomon finished offering all this prayer and supplication to the Lord, he arose from before the Lord's altar, where he had knelt with hands stretched toward heaven." 1 Kings 8:54 Amplified
