My Prayer Blog

Some of you may be aware that I have a second blog. I had planned to use it as sort of a personal prayer journal, but since I began blogging, I have encountered many people for whom I have felt a burden to lift up in prayer. You may find your name or the name of a loved one mentioned there. Some have not been mentioned for the sake of confidentiality, but I have committed to pray daily for each request that has been made known to me.

I have wanted for some time to make my prayer blog more interactive, but I wasn't real sure how to do that, and I have been a bit apprehensive about going "public" with it because I don't want it to seem as though I am seeking any recognition for myself. However, my friend Bev has inspired me to try something new. I have provided a link in my sidebar for prayer requests. Clicking on that link will take you to a page on my prayer blog where you can leave requests or pray for others. I hope you will join me in this endeavor to lift up those in need, whatever their need might be.

Hey Brenda, we'll be prayer buddies :-D I plan this next week to do a Mr. Linky so others can either go to their website and ask for prayer for specific concerns I dont know about, they can write out a prayer, or just mention the need, or they can leave a comment that they will be praying for something, or just praying in general. Either way its a win-win, dont you think? I was a bit overwhelmed when I started getting emails, asking me to pray, so I think if you do this too,and we do a Mr. Linky, or sidebar link the needs will be shared by all of us. xoxoxo

This is just so like you, Brenda. Your heart is so big there's room to include all of us. I've known about A Heart Like Water since I met you ages ago. I knew it was more of a personal prayer journal, kind of a private place for you.

For you to offer your special place to all of us tells me everything I already knew about you is true. You do have a heart like water and you care about all of us who need a little help sometimes.

I'm on my way there right now. As you know, I have a couple of prayer requests on the tip of my tongue.

You are a blessing to all of us.

I wanted to thank you for adding Parker's button to your sidebar. I just read your post about prayer requests. It is people like you that make this world such an amazing place to be.

Thanks again.
