Thankful for Prayer

Over and over again, we hear Paul mention his gratitude for the prayers of others. He believed in the power of prayer and he was thankful for his prayer supporters.

I recently sent out a prayer request for my week at Write to Publish. I was overwhelmed with the response. Every one of the fourteen people I emailed sent back a prayer for me. Thank you ladies from Laced with Grace! I felt your prayer support surrounding me and lifting me up.

God directed me to just the right editors as He was clarifying my vision. I felt lost at the beginning of the week, but He immediately reassured me that I was following Him on this journey. I couldn't have done it without your prayers. THANK YOU!

God works through our prayers and He hears our cries. Would you join me today in praying with Tracy for the people in her area who are dealing with heavy flooding?

So many times the Lord reminds me that if weren't for people praying for me I wouldn't be as encouraged in heart as I am. He also reminds me to pray for strangers who pass me on the road because people I don't know are praying for me.

I'm also thankful for prayer!

And this morning, watching the news about the flooding and tornadoes and fires...I'm praying for those people in those areas.

I just love your heart that comes through so beautifully here!

Prayer is the one thing that keeps me going. My prayers to God and those of the people in my life who love me.

Thank you for this post. Tracy is definitely in my prayers. Blessings.

You are right to point out how much Paul relied on prayer for his ministry, but also offered freely prayers for His brothers and sisters in Christ.
I am so thrilled to read that the conference was a great place for you. I am glad that we were able to pray for you - what a privilege.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.

Isn't prayer support just the best feeling? I pray blessings upon your writing journey as you follow His lead.
