13th day to PRAY for 2015!

Posted by on Feb 1, 2015 in A Community, A Story, Blog | 0 comments

On this 13th day to pray, my own girls are turning 13! I love how Father weaves! Little did I know that I would be writing this 13th prayer on their 13th birthday. It is reminders like these that Father is close, very close and delighted with the conversation!

We are choosing to begin this year in conversation with him for our own journey and the journey of our family! In his word, he calls us these places of prayer, and we delight him with our choosing!

I celebrate family and the gift of children. I celebrate the opportunity to walk with Maya, Ada and Carson as they walk their own journey of faith. I am overwhelmed with the passing of time and how quickly our moments move through these chapters. Take the family pics below.

How could this be? And yet we all have such photos! Our little people grow up and become big people! And what will they take with them when they go? I know one thing for sure. Father promises our prayers go with them, build into them for eternity and never will return void. We can take heart in his promise and his purpose of prayer!

So, today I have one more “but” for you with, of course, a few “p”s mixed in for good measure. These prayer cards sit above my kitchen sink. I spend alot of time here, so I love the reminder and quick opportunity for some good words between Father and I. Share them with me.

“Evening and morning and at noon, I will complain and murmur, and he will hear my voice.

Cast your burden upon the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

But you, O God, will bring them down to the pit of destruction: Men of bloodshed and deceit will not live out half their days but I will trust in you.”

Psalm 55:17, 22-23

Father, “trust” is the word. So much in this word, so integral in our journey with you. So difficult to press beyond what we see and the “burdens” before us. We are tempted to be “shaken.” But we have the choice to call on you in the evening, morning and at noon with our honest words, and you promise to “hear” us. You promise to “sustain” us. You promise “peace.” Father, I pray these promises over our children. I pray they choose you again and again and the know the power of trusting you with it all.

We are loving the journey with you and believing together in the power of this choice! Pressing on in his promises!
