I have to say that I know that there is power in prayer.
Something James and I hear almost everyday is “I don’t know how you are going about your day.” “You amaze me that you are able to still get up and come to work.” Or simply “I don’t know how you do it.”
My honest reply (that I usually say in my head) is, “I’m not doing it.” To be completely honest I would rather stay at home and not face the world. It’s a lot of work to get up each morning, get ready, put a smile on my face, and go into the world. But that’s the thing…I’m not doing that…on my own. That is literally the prayers from people all around the world that help us get up and put that smile on our faces and say, “God is still good.”
We are unbelievably blessed with a faith family that is walking through this season holding our hands. Last night we were so very blessed to have our faith family pray over us and Baby O. As the tears fell all I could say was thank you Jesus for our faith family.
You may be going through a rough season right now. You may question if God is really even there. You may ask if He is even listening to your prayers. I so want to encourage you that it’s ok to not be ok. It’s ok to be confused and hurt.
But I also want to encourage you to praise Him. To pray to Him. To allow the Creator of the Universe to hold you in this season. Trust me when I say there is total power in prayer!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God’s will in Christ Jesus that you do this.
