I do believe in the power of prayer, Lord.
How could I not… when You have proven it to me over and over again?
Years ago, whenever someone would ask me to pray for them, I would gladly agree. I would leave our conversation with the best of intentions… and then, too often, forget to pray as the busyness of life engulfed me.
No more. Now whenever I am asked to pray, I say: “There’s no time like the present! Let’s pray right now!” And we do.
That’s what I’m asking for tonight, Lord.
I don’t often mention my dear husband in this blog. At his request. He doesn’t like to be the focus of attention. But tonight, I am respectfully ignoring his request.
Because he needs prayer.
Tomorrow, he is undergoing major surgery. In deference to his wishes, I won’t reveal any more details. But I do ask You, Abba, to prompt anyone You would like to include in his prayer “army” to read this blog.
And to do, as I do… because “there’s no time like the present” to pray.
We have been engaged in so many different kinds of preparations in recent weeks. It’s late now… way past time for us to try to get some sleep tonight. We leave early tomorrow morning for a hospital 90 miles away. So I’m signing off now.
But it is never to late to pray.
I’ll be doing it all day tomorrow, as I have been for weeks now.
Who will You encourage to join me, Lord?
