Powerful Prayful Post 8/29/10

Where has the month gone? Or the summer even?

I was on a blogging roll in July, inspired by the Paris topic, but in August, I never got myself in gear. I think some of it has to do with recovering from RWA in Orlando, following up with a few requests I received and getting ready for the school year to start.

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer while your children were off school and you were able to make some memories that will make you smile in the years to come. For me, it was my son who had the milestones: confirmation, graduation, his trip to the youth gathering, joining the high school football team, and today, he turns 15.

I shouldn't be asking where did the summer go but where did the last 15 years go. It just doesn't seem possible. Though some of it is a blur, I thank God for each and everyone one of those moments I've had with my son, and daughters, as well.

My prayer for him is that he continues to grow into the wonderful young man that he is, and that his high school years are filled with fun, laughter and friends. Most of us have been down that high school road and know there were some tears thrown in there as well. I pray that there are few for him and if negative things do happen, that his faith in God continues to be strong, since that will get him through anything, better than any loving sympathy I could offer.

I do have some prayer requests and ask that you remember my mother who is not feeling well, a friend facing surgery in a few months, a classmate (I also attended my class reunion this month) who is fighting cancer.

Do you have any special concerns or praises you would like to share. I would be happy to pray for you and them this week. If not, do you have a special memory from time with your children this past summer that you would like to share?

Have a Blessed Day.


  1. No request but a special memory from this last summer was having all four of my sons and their families-6 grandchildren together for a reunion. It only happens every 3-4 years as they are spread out all over the usa.

  2. How wonderful to have had that time with them. I hope it happens more often.

  3. So many prayer requests in blogger land. I am so glad to have prayers going out for me and the privilege of praying for others. :O)

  4. Amy, I will remember your Mom and your friend. Thanks for sharing and let us know how the surgery goes.

  5. Memories of time with my grandparents in the summer - - - and remembering fun times with my girls, too.
    Request - - for health, strength, and no accidents while we pack and move the church library the latter part of this week and the beginning of the week after. Thanks. . . . and I have your requests written down.

  6. It was so nice to meet you over at Getting Down With Jesus. Thank you for dropping by.

    I prayed over your requests here, and hope for good reports soon.

    God bless ...

  7. I have added prayer requests. My sister-in-laws mother and sister. If everyone could remember them it would really be appreciated.

  8. Time really does go so fast, doesn't it? I will pray for your friends and needs now.

  9. I'm wondering where the summer went too, but thanking God for my son's job and apartment (he just moved in).
