Welcome back, friends.
I wonder—am I the only one who can sometimes find prayer exhausting? Often I’ll focus so much on a specific prayer burden, it can become mentally and physically draining.
Is there a “me too” in the room?
If you’re like me, our prayers aren’t an effort to control—we know God’s bigger than it all.
Rather, we’re praying because hope is birthed in prayer. Hope begets prayer, and prayer begets hope. And on and on and on…
Hope can be addictive, can’t it?
Since February’s the “month of love,” what do you say we bend the ear of God on behalf of those we love the most—our families. Spouses, significant others, children, god-children, in-laws, extended relatives—whatever “family” looks like in your world.
So seemingly passive, yet—our greatest influence is prayer. Tweet This
P.S.) I made this printable with the names shared in our last If My People post. I hope it’s helpful for us as we continue to lift these hearts to heaven and wait expectantly on God. Please feel free to download.
