Thankful 30: Day 24–Praying
I’m challenging myself to post a picture every day during the month of November (30 Days To Be Thankful For) and to add a caption as to why I am thankful. — Emily
I am grateful for the women in my prayer group. These are their hands.
A few years ago, that still, small voice whispered, “You need to pray,” first to one woman in our church, then another, and another–so a small group of women began to meet during the Sunday School hour for prayer. I can’t tell you why the others joined, but I could echo the disciples’ desire in Luke 11:1–“Lord, teach us to pray.”
Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth. Psalm 54:2 NIV
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalm 17:6 NIV
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12 NIV
God is teaching me more about prayer, and I am blessed to be in the loving company of these women as I learn.
Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. I Peter 4:7,8 The Message
