In the midst of the confusion of last year (when were we going to Belize.. how to raise support.. how to live with your parents when you have a family of your own) I "happened upon" a book by Paul Miller called A Praying Life.
Needless to say this was exactly what I needed at the time. He approached prayer in a way I really hadn't looked at in a long time. He speaks about our utter dependence on God, just as Jesus was. How could I expect to be less dependent on my creator than Jesus was? It was a strong challenge! I was able to find a great "prayer card" app which I really like. I can edit cards, add verses and requests for different people.
We all have ways we pray. This is an intimate thing. This is not a post on how or what to pray.
A while ago I was convicted. We have this blog so you can connect with us. You can see a little of what is going on with us. I do my best to give a little taste of what is going on in our lives. I have neglected making prayer a part of that.
My goal is to have a place.. and hopefully a tab you can simply click on with our updated prayer requests list. For now here is the short list:
- A YWAM team arrives for a short term trip on Saturday, pray for them and pray for us as we work with them
- We pray as a team on Tuesdays please pray with us as we pray for each other and the church
- Please pray for God to tap on people's hearts in church, for them to hunger after him
