I cannot believe we are on week 4! What a journey in prayer I am on. Some days it's easy, so days it's more difficult. The discipline of prayer time each morning is something I desire, but have to admit there were a few days that it was easier to sleep a bit longer and then hurry through my devotions. I have learned not to beat myself up on those days. It's not that I was not in communication with the Father, I talk to Him a lot throughout the day. But not having that intense, quiet time... well, I missed it! I had to learn that as I want to deepen my prayer time with the Lord, that I cannot be a perfect prayer. But I will perserve in my prayer journey, continue to grow in my prayer life and my intimate relationship with God.
Your prayer requests from last week have been written on those strips, prayed over and soon will hang in our church. A visual reminder of our requests to God.
One of the verses we focused on last week was Matthew 17:20
...I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
I have to say, this week I have seen some mountains moved. Due to the confidentiality of a certain prayer request, I cannot divulge the background... but a mountain of healing is beginning in many, many lives. Praise God! His grace was abundant! Believe me sisters, this was big, and it was only by God's grace that this could happen. There was a lot of prayer covering this situation. But the prayer doesn't stop here. The prayers must and will continue!
A mountain that needs moved doesn't necessarily have to be something as large as the Rocky Mountains. Your mountain might seem small, but it's important to God and He wants it moved! Healing can happen, mountains can be moved, relationships restored... pray, pray, pray!
This week our focus is on the Lord's Prayer. So I ask two things from each of you. One, I would love your prayer requests, so I can pray for you. Two... pray the Lord's prayer. Really pray it. Ponder the words... think of their meaning in your life & the lives of those around you. Your family, friends, co-workers, community. I cannot wait until next Monday when I can share what I have learned this week studying and praying The Lord's Prayer.
So, I would like to pray again this week for you. Post a request by clicking the comment link or you can email me!
Love you all!
