Good Morning Bloggy Friends,
Spring is definitely showing up here in Charlotte. I have daffodils blooming and found some new narcissus had come up while Madi and I were away speaking this weekend. Which by the way, was wonderful! Welcome to my new friends in Herndon, Virginia! We learned on Saturday how to “Build a Bridge to Your Child’s Heart”; it is so good to meet new friends!
Spring at the Cowell’s means fast pitch softball. Madi has grown once again which means it is time for a longer bat. A mean bat is Madi’s number one weapon when it comes to playing at the top of her game.
As believers we too need strong weapons to play at the top of our game: prayer, time in the Word, fasting and serving. Join me at Internet Cafe Devotions this morning with your cup of coffee as I share more about prayer.
Prayer, a multi-dimensional gift from our Father, needs to be at the very top of our arsenal. When we partner with others, it becomes even more powerful. Ecclesiates 4:9 tells us:
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:” (NIV)
Prayer walking is one of my favorite ways to start the day. I meet a dear friend several times a week at the park or the greenway. We spend a few minutes catching up and then we dive right into praying. It doesn’t matter who walks by or what they hear; we have a prayer meeting going on as we huff it through the trees.
Power and encouragement come together when we pray together. There is hope when we pray together. The best part of all, there is a whole lot of praise when we see God answer our prayers together.
Do you have a prayer partner? How and when do you and your friend prayer together?
I’m heading out the door to meet my friend to pray now! If you have a specific prayer request today, please let me know when you comment and I will pray for you too!
