Day 19: Our Prayers NEVER DIE!

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?

  1. I woke up this morning to a dream that I had about a friend that I haven’t been in contact with. We have a broken relationship and quite frankly she has walked away from the Lord and her relationship with Him. At times I have prayed earnestly for her…and at other times, just to be honest, I have given up on ever having a mended relationship with her. Lord, forgive me. Help me to keep praying and believing. This morning’s reading was right on time!

  2. So…crazy…well this morning while I was praying on my way to work I felt the Lord saying to me that I needed to walk circles around my work…let me back up-I am half heartedly praying for my work since it frustrates me so much, however my mom karen (also part of this group and also walked this morning) has been praying for 2 1/2 years. The Lord told me make it important. Circle it. Pray. Walk. He will do great things. Trust Him! Trust and walk we did. We looked CRAZY. And if the building walls fall down so be it! I know we can have peace at work and fairness and an environment that I am proud to be apart of. I love my patients and my what I do. I love the team I work with. I want to see it grow and flourish in ways that we never imagined, but I have to pray WHOLE heartedly!!!!

    1. Melissa, I love this crazy faith that you and your mom have for your work environment. God is so faithful and He is working in the midst of it all. Keep making those circles and don’t give up!! So very proud of you both and thank you so much for sharing with us!

  3. I am trusting that my prayers will not go unanswered and will not be forgotten. Melissa, I think I need to walk circles at work….let’s see if I can get started tomorrow! I’ve taken a bold stance on some things at work. I will either make people so mad that they will take action and change or I will get fired. I’m not worried, it’s in God’s hands….please pray that my actions are God given, not selfish or foolish.

I know my iob needed a change but my attitude about my job needed to change too. God has a plan!!! Love you mrs. Freida.
