This is going to be a short post (less than 400 words). I sincerely hope when you’re done reading it, you’ll read THIS ONE as well.
Recently, I blogged about Janet Sketchley’s post, “What’s in the heart,” which inspired me to write on a similar subject. It happened again this past week, and I must share.
I belong to several Facebook and Twitter writing groups, and have read a lot of prayer requests in the threads of comments. Some want prayers for ill-health, some for their writing journeys, while others ask us to pray for their loved ones. None of these are no less important than others. No matter the request, we, as Christians, are called to lift each other up in prayer. The best part is in what Jesus tells us in Matthew 18: “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Saturday, I really enjoyed Bobbi Junior’s post and hope you’ll join her – as I do in her movement. Writers, like everybody else, have needs too. As you read their books, we ask you to keep them in prayers.
I like to think of myself as a prayer warrior. When I find myself doing nothing (which isn’t very often), I talk to God. Working in a call centre where it’s not very busy, I like to follow God’s command as told by the Apostle Paul, and I pray continually. I pray for whoever He lays on my heart, I thank him for the things He’s done in my life, and that of others. I like to pray first thing in the morning (my day just isn’t the same when I don’t), last thing at night as I lay my head down, and anywhere in between when He nudges me. I love talking to Him every chance I get.
Some think prayer are only required when we’re in desperate need. I do ask for His provisions in those times, but also praise and thank Him in the good times.
So as you read the words of the authors you enjoy so much, will you please take a moment and pray for them today? Let’s all join Bobbi’s movement and pray for writers.
