Another Powerful Prayerful Monday 11/23/09

Sorry for the late post. I slept later than usual this morning so I wasn't able to post prior to my rush to get ready for work and out the door. Maybe I need prayers to get my sleep schedule back in order. Somehow I've gotten turned around and I am unable to sleep until late and I end up hitting the snooze in the morning. Ugh! I will get turned back around eventually (I hope). Of course, with the holidays, who knows what will happen.

Once again I was blessed with opportunity to pray for so many last week and would like to continue to do the same this week. Please list your prayer requests in the comments. Also, given that this is the week of Thanksgiving, I would like to hear what blessings each of us are thankful for. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were sending more praises than requests this week.

In truth, I believe we all have a lot to be thankful for, but when an illness happens, whether it is us, a family member or friend, or unemployement, or tragedy, or any other negative in our lives, it tends to completely overshadow everything we should be thankful for. I know when my child was seriously injured years ago, I prayed for her health and healing and it was weeks later before it occurred to me to thank God that I had medical insurance and that we lived close to a trauma hospital that was affiliated with a children's hospital so that she could get the best of care, as well as the doctors, nurses, etc.

I hope everyone will join me in praying for those who list a request as well as praising and thanking God of his bountiful blessings.

  1. Thank you for offering to pray. Holidays are very difficult for my family because of a lot of family issues. Need healing and restoration for my family. Thankful that I will be volunteering on Thanksgiving at a local church and being used of God as a giver too and not just a taker. :O)

  5. Could you please pray for my girlfriend. Her ex husband has taken the kids and she has no idea where he or the kids are. Her babies are very little. The youngest is still breastfed. She is distraught as you can imagine.
