I constantly remember you in my prayers.
Several years ago I was prompted to pray for you often, and I wonder why.
That text message from an old friend came with a photo of a note shed kept in her Bible: Pray for James. Cover mind, thoughts, words. Beside my name shed recorded three separate years.
I looked at the years and caught my breath. I wrote back and asked what month she began to pray. She responded, Sometime around July.
That was the month I was preparing to leave home for extended study abroad. I would be facing an unfamiliar culture and language and have my faith challenged like never before. As I looked at the note, I realized Id received the precious gift of generous prayer.
My friends kindness reminded me of another prompting to pray, Pauls instruction to his young missionary friend Timothy: I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people (1 Timothy 2:1). The phrase first of all indicates highest priority. Our prayers matter, Paul explains, because God wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth about Jesus (v. 4).
God moves through faithful prayer in countless ways to encourage others and draw them near to Himself. We may not know someones circumstances when they come to mind, but God does. And Hell help that person as we pray!
Who comes to mind that needs your prayers in this new year? How can you remind yourself to pray for them often?
Loving God, please help me to pray often and to make a lasting difference in others lives through my intercession for them.

Sunny, windy, cold outside.
Warm and Fuzzy Wednesday inside, in the sunroom with doggie.
Fox Biz is showing Scandalous:The Clintons. They sure have plagued America for a long long time.
I simply cannot watch those two grifters. I just get too angry. LOL!
It was amazing to see how young she was, and same bad liar as she is today. A clip of Maxine Waters from 1998 was jarring.... 22 years later she is still there. Grrr.
