Making a Prayer Request List...
In light of the devastation caused by the tornadoes that ripped through the south, I was inspired to begin a well overdo habit...Making a prayer request list.
Living in Georgia I'm very close to many who lost loved ones and homes. As a result, I'm finding that there are so many that have asked to remember them in my prayers. Those affected by the tornado as well as those who need prayer for things completely unrelated.
Some of these requests are made by people I know personally, others are friends I have made in couponing forums and fellow bloggers, while some I have just read about and don't know at all. While I do pray for those who have asked, I feel compelled to be sure to just go ahead and actually write these requests down. I want to make sure that I remember each and every one. While I have my quiet time with God, I can take my list out and remember each and every request.
This is also a great way to be sure to keep in touch with those who need lifting up. I can shoot a quick email to ask how their sick loved one is, or if they are feeling better from an illness, or how their family members surgery went, or if someone got the job they were hoping for, etc. Just let them know I am still thinking of them.
Then, best of all, I can remember to thank God for all those miracles that I may not have heard about otherwise! :)
I know it means a lot to have someone ask me how things are going, or to give me well wishes when I'm ill.
Praying for those in need,
P.S. Feel free to leave a prayer request. :)
