I wanted to gently allow you all to share in some of the prayers that have been offered on behalf of our family. I often write and tell you that it is humbling. It is more than that, it is what has sustained me and allowed me to stay strong in the Word. Here’s one example that came along at just the right time praise be to God.
God, please, we beg You for Your mercy in the darkest of hours. Aside from You we find no comfort, no joy, no peace in this world and in our flesh. The enemy seeks total devastation of lives. He seeks as a roaring lion in 1 Peter 5:8. You instruct us to put on the whole armor in Ephesians 6. May we be obedient. Inspire us in Your Word and in Your Truth. Empower us to resist whatever temptation comes our way. Be our counselor, please Lord, that we may desire to seek only You. We know that You bless those who seek Your counsel, You promise this in Psalm 1.
To the sender of this lovely and perfect prayer, I wanted you to know that despite this trial, I’m so grateful that I’ve never stopped believing in God. It hasn’t been easy and I’ve surely asked “Why?” at least a time or two but I’ve never even waited for an answer because I know the answer already (thank you Father).
You, my friend, have been an arm of strength since the beginning. You and your family are always present in the forefront of my thinking. You have been faithful and unyielding in your service. Your support isn’t something to be taken lightly. Oh, how I pray that I will be able to be there for you in the same way you have been there for us.
