If you look at the header on my blog, you’ll see that I’ve added a new page called, “Prayer Requests.” The reason I did this is because I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that God hears our prayers, and acts on them. I’ve found for myself that knowing that someone is praying for me is a tremendous comfort. I’ve also found that keeping a prayer journal is a great benefit to me because I can look back and see all the times when God acted on my prayers. When He showed His love and care for me. It’s easy to praise the Lord when you have the benefit of seeing all that He’s done for you. I’ve thought-not for the first time-that it’s a shame that I need to keep a record of what the Lord has done for me, but sometimes in the midst of trials, and Satan’s attacks, my memory grows short. Having it in writing helps me. I thought having a place where other people could come and share their burdens, and know that someone was praying for them might help them, too.
It’s my hope and prayer that this page will be used for the glory of God, and to help strengthen and build the faith of those who come to share what’s on their hearts. I’ve written a small paragraph outlining what the page is about, and how I’d like for it to be used. If you have any comments or suggestions I gladly welcome them. It’s my hope that people will use this page when they need prayer for something, and will pray for others as well. Above all, I pray that this page glorify God, and be a wonderful reminder of and great witness to His unfailing faithfulness and love toward His people.
