This week I have been praying a bit more than usual. I have a family member who is in critical condition right now and I know a few others who are dealing with fatal physical conditions too. Tonight as I was praying for them and some other things that have been on my heart I just felt led to do write this post. I know I do not know most of you in real life, but I still feel like I know you, know what I mean? I share my life, ideas, creations and you share them back with me.
I want to take this opportunity to ask if you need prayer for something. Anything. Whether you believe in God or not, I want you to know that I care and want to pray for you/whoever/whatever. Just send me an email if you like, leave a comment, be anonymous or share your life story. I won’t mind.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12
“He said to them, “When you pray, say:
‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’ Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’ Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man’s boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs. So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:2-13
