Honored to Pray

This morning has already been a morning of prayer.  Every time I log onto Facebook, it seems I see another prayer request for someone.  Many times I know the person caring enough to post the request, but I don't know the people who need prayer.  The neat thing is that I don't need to know them -- the Lord does.  I am honored to lift up these individuals and their families before the Lord.  I have been blessed in the same way many times by people who did not know me personally but know the Lord -- and seriously, that's what matters most.

Today, I am honored to pray for a sister who struggling with liver-related issues, a young boy battling the complications of a brain tumor, a young pregnant woman whose heart rate skyrockets to dangerous levels, and a 6-year-old girl on life support whose transplanted heart is straining to function properly.  If anyone reads this, which is doubtful because I haven't shared the existence of this blog yet -- but you never know who may stumble upon it -- please pray for these people through their challenges. 

"The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.  Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.   Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit."  ~James 5:16b-18

In Christ, Talya
