I feel like I’ve been barely hanging on when it comes to blogging regularly. Not sure why, exactly. Maybe it’s just a phase.
Whatever it is, through the past couple of weeks I have had one thing that I am particularly grateful for:
The encouragement of prayer
Whether it is the early morning twitter friends who ask, “How can I pray for you today?” or the family members who know me well and understand what I’m asking for when I say, “Please pray for me,” I am humbled and blessed by that simple, yet powerful, act of standing in the gap.
I am also very grateful for the privilege of praying for others. To know that you are struggling with motivation, sickness, or emotional weariness, and have the opportunity to bring you before the Lord throughout my day is a thing I take seriously.
What a joy to journey through this life together.
