Pray with me

My friend is in need of prayer.
Her marriage is at stake.
Pray with me, won't you?

I opened up my other friend's blog and clicked on her play list because I like the choice of worship music she has. Then I opened a new tab and searched images.com for stock photography with the key word "pray".

So there I was, scrolling through hundreds of images of people praying,
hands lifted high,
people on their knees,
children praying,
grandma's praying,
families holding hands,
heads bowed...

...and listening to music that calls for God to be near,
praising His name,
worshiping His holiness,
trusting His faithfulness,
to have mercy on our souls...

...and thinking about my friend,
the pain she is in,
the complications of life,
the sadness she must be feeling,
the outlook of their decision...

...it brought me to tears.

But I know something. I know that God is good and His power of restoration is real.
I've experienced it.

I also know that listening to God and following His plan is peaceful. It's the way that leads to experiencing His heavenly goodness. Breathe it in.

While reading her blog and listening to her music, my friend (my other friend, not the who needs prayer) posted the below verse regarding something totally different than what I'm blogging about. But, His Word is awesome and we can use it for comfort and understanding and instruction and the benefit of our whole life.

I don't know for sure if my friend who needs prayer reads my blog. She's a busy gal and right now she has so many thoughts to dwell on.

But if you do, please remember that
"the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling..."
{Ephesians 1:17-18a}

Also know that I will be praying for you fervently. Call on Him for comfort; He will be there for you. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles..." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4a

If anyone reading this is a prayer warrior, will you agree to pray with me?

I'm on it!

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, through prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
{Phil. 4-6}

We can be thankful that God's hand is on this situation and that whatever choices are made, even if they seem ill-made, He can turn it all into good!

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places..."
{Eph. 6:12}

If only married people would see that their spouse is NOT the enemy. No, we are fighting something much more insidious. Our enemy has declared war on families and we must fight back!

Be encouraged! Your prayer availeth much. {James 5:16}
