Pray.

I'm reading three different books about prayer. I have passages I would like to quote but I don't have enough light to read my books by. I'll have to go by memory and touch on some of the points that I'm learning about.

1. Doubt and unbelief. In the language of faith, these are two completely different things.

2. Helplessness is the foremost ingredient in effective prayer.

3. Pray for others because if you don't perhaps things will not unfold according to God's plans. It's possible for people to get into ministry who shouldn't. Likewise, it's possible there may be people who are supposed to be in a ministry who are not because no one has prayed for them. I never thought of this!

4. Don't worry if you can't pray aloud eloquently. Some people do and that's great. Everyone nods their head in appreciation of a job done well. Don't worry about how you sound because when the prayers of a person who is stumbling to find their words reaches God, all of heaven rejoices.

WowWEEEEEEE!! You're back!! How did I miss it?? How could I not know?? I am so glad to see your blog back up again. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah!!

Is my enthusiasm too much?

The earrings are gorgeous and I really like the necklace set you made for your sister. Chickadee, you do nice work!

Am I gushing? Sorry!

Dearest Lil,

Just wanted to drop you a little personal note to say I pray for you! We've traveled many of the same roads, seen many of the same views, but never at the same time! (How cruel! Surely we should have crossed paths by now!) But I do know the dangers of life on the road and the answers to prayers you may never have known were prayed for you. Be safe and know you are thought of and prayed for!

May traveling mercies be yours,
Fox

Hello Liliana, calvary greetings to you. I like your thoughts on prayer. I read sometime awhile ago that PRAYER is power released at your express request. I like that and I hope you do too. Shalom

My Utmost for His Highest
