i notice that my b and jk both pray for what is on their minds. brooke never prays with out being thankful for all the puppies and kittens and animals in the world and asking the Lord to be with them all.
at first, that seems a little off...praying for kittens? but brooke prays her heart...why don't we? sometimes i think it's b/c we aren't sure what's really in our hearts...sometimes it's fear of being exposed...sometimes we just don't pray...and sometimes we are too wrapped up in our own wants and needs to know what to pray.
i got an email today from johnie...abigail's dad. you might remember her from the Mitochondrial Disease walk we did a few weeks ago. She's not doing well...and that just gets me. it hurts. i pray for her and then i want to pray again...and i pray for nicole (mom) and i want to pray more.
days like this remind me that we are totally living in a fallen and sick world...and that is totally not now it was suppose to be. death and illness and hate and fear and pain and anxiety are not what God wants...and we won't see any of that gone until we're with Jesus.
so, today, i'm asking you to pray. i won't ask you what to pray for...just pray your heart...that's all God ever asks us to do.
if you don't know what to pray for, pray about that (not knowing...).
abigail and her family can always use your prayers.
