The Power of Prayer
I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer. If you read here or on my Facebook page or even my Twitter feed you shouldn’t be surprised to see me openly talking about prayer and getting closer to God. Prayer is something that’s often on my mind because well frankly I pray all day long.
I’d love to tell you all that I’m a traditional prayer, as if I set up a beautiful scene with candles, music and my head bowed respectfully but more often than not I’m involved in a deep honest conversation with my Lord and Father. People probably think I’m wacky as I talk to the air while driving or am rushing to grab my bible to look up something but for me these are common practices throughout my day.
Each evening we pray as a family and I do keep a prayer list which I share with God nightly as I close out my day in prayer.
Mark 11:24 (NIV)
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Recently I put a feeler out there on my Facebook and Twitter feeds asking if folks would be interested in a prayer chain here.
Thankfully the response was a resounding YES and so here we are today with the very first post of what I hope becomes a powerful resource for all of us.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
