I Need Prayer… You?

I Need Prayer… You?

These two. At first glance, it was a nice thought to think that they were praying together. Not so.

Legos. Good ol’, love to step on them and tear my feet up, Legos.

And truthfully, what started so sweetly ended in a fight. However, somewhere in between, they needed each other’s help.

Boy said, ‘Girl, can you please hold this bridge up so I can attach these other pieces here?’

Girl replied, ‘OK Bruhber, ok.’ Then she held the pieces, he attached the extra, and for 2.5 seconds they worked together accomplishing a great task and were content for doing so {For 2.5 secs 🙂 }.

You know what I noticed, without her help he would have not been able to achieve what he set out to create. He needed extra hands and she lent hers.

Don’t we all need extra hands? Sure, to clean, cook, shop, build, write, wrap 😉 and Lord knows the list goes on. Extra hands would be wonderful for so many reasons!

But specifically right now, I have a need for extra hands, and truth is you may too.

Hands willing to still in sincerity and belief.
Hands willing to put down busyness and lift up requests to our Hope, our Healer, and our Help.

Hands willing to fold in prayer as requests are uttered from our hearts to His- our Ever Loving & Long Listening, Lord…

Are yours willing?
Friend, can I ask you to pray for me? Would you pray for peace, clarity, and diligence over so many areas of my life and for good health for so many I know and love that are struggling right now?
Can you please?

And, can I pray for you? That is what I am doing today. I am praying. If you would like me to join you at bringing your requests to the His Throne, would you leave them here? (Or inbox.) I promise to take them to Him.

There is something about praying together. His Word is flooded with encouragement on doing just that:

Matthew 18:19-20 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.“

1 John 5:14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands (me, you , & Him) is not quickly broken.

We need each other. We need to pray for each other.

My daughter was willing to share her hands in a true desire to help her brother get past a point of need.

Today, I am willing to share mine too. To still, to lift, and to fold on your behalf. Join me?

Thankful for you and need you too! 🙂

Love to you My #MM Fam,
