Thankful 30: Day 24–Praying

I have joined Emily’s* 30 Day Challenge:

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

Day 24

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
