Matterofprayer: A Year of Everyday Prayers – Sunday, August 28, 2016
Prayer with Friends, for Friends
Ever run away and play? Even, for a little while? Yeah, that was just the other day. I told my husband I was going away with several people for an overnight. On top of that, I had some marvelous meals, thanks to my good friend and two new acquaintances. (And, I even was invited to pray.)
Unstructured, absolutely free time. We had fun. Girls’ day away. Seriously! I have not done anything like that for months and months.
Upon reflection, I find I get so stuffy and sensible—I wonder how that happened? Something to amend in the future, for sure.
Dear God, thank You for my good friend. I pray for her. I ask You to bless her in the midst of her busy-ness, and especially as she has a great number of things to take care of in the next few weeks. I thank You for the time we had away, resting. Having serious fun. Help us all to remember how we did that, and try to repeat it again, soon. God, thanks for reminding me that it is okay to rest and relax. Really. Lord, in Your mercy, hear my earnest prayers.
