somebody's praying

The words are powerful and the truth is something we all need.  Because of where I am in life and what my family is dealing with through my mom’s sickness this song has come up again.  Over the last few weeks I have had notes from people all over the place, had people stop me about everywhere I went and simply said a few words … I am praying for your mom and your family.  That is a big deal.  I am grateful.

Allen Asbury and his song "Somebody's Praying Me Through" touched my heart...

Pressing over me like a big blue sky
I know someone has me on their heart tonight
That's why I know it's gonna be alright
'Cause somebody's praying me through

Somebody's praying me through
It may be my Mother, it might be my Dad
Or an old friend I've forgot I had
But whoever it is I'm so glad that
Somebody's praying me through
Somebody's praying me through

Through the tears, through the rain
Through the sorrow, through the pain
It keeps bringing me through
Over and over again
So when you're drowning in a sea of hurt
And it feels like life couldn't get any worse
Thats a blessing waiting to push back the curse
'Cause somebody's praying you through

Somebody's praying you through
Someone got down on their knees and prayed for me
Somebody's, somebody's praying you through

I am thankful for every prayer, every act of compassion and for how God uses His word, songs, friends, sunrises and so much more to remind all of us of His presence in all situations.

James 5:16  NASB
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all,

Do for others what they have done for you.  Pray for them.  Do what others can’t do for themselves sometimes.  Pray for them.  If you can’t do any thing else, pray.  If you can do something else, still pray.

I am grateful that many are praying us through.

I am praying for:

Many people who are on my mind this morning.  Mom is in a great hospice home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and I am glad I can spend time with her.  Please continue to pray for her, my dad and our family.
