Prayer requests


Today is our prayer request day. My thoughts turned to those whose lives we touch each day: families, friends, neighbors, work associates.

As we try to influence our world for Him, do we use prayer as one of our tools?

It can affect someone deeply to hear us quietly affirm that we are praying for their health, or for a troublesome situation that they face.

It can remind someone of their need to express gratitude, when they see us bow our heads before eating our meal.

It can shape our families' lives if we pray with them, paying careful attention to the things that we know are troubling them.

As we pause to pray today, let's commit to being a prayer warrior, and also a prayer witness!

If you have a prayer request or a praise, won't you leave a comment so we can pray or rejoice with you?

“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man or woman is powerful on their knees.” ~ Corrie ten Boom
