The Gift of Prayer

Jesus help [Rebekah M] right now and give her strength and the ability to treat her patience. In Jesus name. Amen. 

Today I was having a rough day at work. I just didn’t feel very well- I was tired, my stomach hated me a bit, and I just wanted to crawl into a corner, lay down, and wait for the day to be over.  Alas, one cannot do that… not when patient are relying on you to help them get better or at least get out of the hospital!

Thus I asked Mr. Guy to say a prayer for me and he sent that prayer back over text to me and I literally started having things fall in to place.  Was everything perfect? No, but it definitely was a nice pick me up in my slumping afternoon.

There is something to be said about having a man in my life who will pray for me if I just ask. He knows that I and my prayer partner pray for him and his church. He’s actually felt them more than once as we were praying. This prayer partnership is so good for both of us and I thank God for him in my life right now.

Are things easy? No. Big N-O. The time difference is frustrating at times. Sometimes between work and all that, he doesn’t get to text me until his afternoon… which is my evening time.  I have to remind myself that it’s not he’s forgotten about me, it’s just that it’s not even that late over where he’s at (we have a 3hr time difference) and he’s most likely having a busy morning.

Regardless… God has been good in the short time we’ve been talking and every time it seems like things might splinter apart, when we pray, God just puts it all back together.  He has been there for me when my gas tank was literally on empty (as in my car calculated I had 0  miles left… for over half an hour and over 10 miles later when I filled up at the nearest gas station after being caught in stopped traffic for clearly too long lol) praying by my side. He has prayed blessings in to my life. He has prayed with me in a way so natural, it’s felt like we were praying together like that for years- even from our first prayer together.

It all makes me see what a gift prayer can be. His prayers make me stronger and a better person and I cannot thank God enough for bringing this sweet man into my life.  Do I think this means he’s absolutely the one? I have no clue- all I do know is that I thank God for him being in my life right now and I would not object if God allowed it to last longer… maybe even much longer 🙂

So Jesus,

I thank You for this gift of a praying man that You’ve put into my life right now and I just hope and pray that our dear readers also find someone to be that for them as well… even if it’s a friend (verses romantic interest). Jesus, may they also discover this gift of prayer.

  1. Yes, having someone to share your concerns with that will petition the throne for and with you is incredibly amazing. I praise the LORD with you for this wonderful gift you have been given. May the LORD continue to strengthen you and keep you. Bless you! 🙂
