Ya’ll – first of all, can I just say, “WOW!”
There. Were. 31. Comments. In. One. Day!!!!!!!
I just LOVED hearing from my peoples – can you see me jumping for joy?
Yes, we are all going through some tough struggles and battles – but, ya’ll: we are LIFTING EACH OTHER UP! That’s a beautiful thing. Not only are we drawing closer to Jesus, but we’re letting each other know that you’re not alone in your struggles. I just love this. What are we going to do after day 40?!?!?!? 🙂
Now, wait a minute. There’s a few of you I have not heard one single peep out of. Like nothing. Are you alive? Inquiring minds want to know. You can text me, and I will try not to text the wrong people back like I did earlier today with the newest team member….ooops! I felt terrible – first day on the team and she gets random text messages from me that had nothing to do with prayer – it was about my lunch for goodness sake!
Seriously. I want to know what’s going on with you. You know who you are. And I’m trying so stinkin’ hard to not harass you! So, I will wait for you to make the first move and let me know what’s going on in your life. Have you trashed the book? That’s ok. I will forgive you one day. JK. Are you really into it and you just haven’t told me? GREAT!
Moving on to today’s reading – I could once again highlight the entire chapter for you because this one stuck out for me.
I won’t do that because you can read it yourself.
You know what I want? I want to be that grandfather. I want to leave a lasting impression with my family from them hearing me intercede for them by name. I want a holy anticipation. I want to collect my prayers like snapshots in a family album, to cherish for years and generations to come. I want to lay a foundation that will withstand time. I want intercession to be part of my family’s spiritual DNA.
And it all starts with ME.
My prayers could one day be the answer to 84,315 prayers (read today’s reading if you don’t get that yet).
And my prayers never ever die. They are never forgotten. They are never unanswered. Thank you, Jesus!
I heard this song a few days ago that I haven’t heard in YEARS! It is very timely for our journey together.
I get on my knees.
Let’s do that today, shall we?
