Chapter 2, Page 2, Book 12

Every night I turn my worries over to God - he's going to be up all night anyway. 
Mary Crowley

THANKFUL Thursday!

Praying for others is a gift that blesses everyone.

It's a wonderful thing to be able to turn aside from any challenges or concerns in my own life and turn my attention to praying for a friend or a loved one or even sometimes for a stranger.  Placing faith in Christ is not the result of an emergency, but an immediate opportunity.  When I pray for others I am assured that a right solution will be coming for not only them, but for myself as well.

And he said, the things which are impossible with men are possible with God
Luke 18:27

Generosity inspires generosity, and giving generates abundance.  As I pray each day I hope that in some small way those prayers do create some abundance in my life and the lives of others.  Being grateful is always a big part of what I pray about.  I also give thanks in advance, expressing gratitude for all my blessings.  It's a process that creates a chain reaction and gathers momentum as it goes.

Today I am thankful for prayers.  Those I say, and also for those that others say for me .  

when it's a glorious day
I pray
and it's a glorious day
when I pray

I hope your Thursday is a THANKFUL one too.

Prayers can change lives, that is for sure. I appreciate anytime someone lends me their ear and offers to say one for me. And I never hesitate to say one for others. I love the quote about being up all night. I said that yesterday too when you first posted it. Have a great day.

Hey Ma! Lots of exciting things going on today! Sometimes planting seeds have results. I have a "nibble" and wanted to let you know. So pray for me too!
