…I will pray for you, I will
…I love you, I mean it
…I’m sorry, I mean it or I’m trying to mean it
…you’re my friend, you are
There are some people blogging honestly out there. Sometimes they are so honest they admit to things that sort of disappoint me. The #1 thing that makes my heart hurt is when they say “sometimes I don’t pray when I said I would”. Ouch! The last time I saw this admission on a blog my heart sank. Why? Because I had asked that person to pray for my unborn baby and if that person really didn’t pray when he/she said they would… well, that just doesn’t seem right to me.
Regardless — there were plenty of people praying for Jaxon and he’s doing awesome. So thank you to those of you who were sincere. I prayed over you as you prayed over us. I promise I did.
Friends of ours got some potentially bad news on Friday about one of their children. My heart is sore as I pray for them and wait for more test results. I’ve been on that cliff teetering on the edge of the abyss waiting for more test results. It’s a very scary and helpless place to be. Suddenly you must trust complete strangers with the most sensitive of issues and there are times when you feel you simply will not breathe until the phone rings. Family members of ours just went through a very trying time medically with their child. Thankfully, the little tyke has completely recovered. But what a rough, rough few days waiting to see what would happen.
I told all of these people that I would pray for them and their children. And I did. And I am.
When you say that you’ll pray for someone do it. Let that be the single most important thing you do each day. Go to God interceding for others in prayer. It doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t have to be formal. Just pray.
Prayer is important. People count on prayer.
