I'm feeling thankful today. Humbled. Touched. And it's all because of my April Quests. And I'm only on Day 2. Wow God....
First of all...I have to admit, I did not get my Encourage note written last night. I wasn't feeling the best. I was very tired, so shortly after posting my blog, I went to bed. However, I did have the card and person picked out. This afternoon, I sat down, penned yesterday's note, and wrote the one for today as well. They will both go out in the mail tomorrow.
After that, I made a list of the prayer requests I have gotten so far and chose a date for each of them on my calendar. While I was at it, I added a few names I plan to pray for when I don't have a request. Then, I made a list of those I want to encourage at some point as well.
I like the idea of having my two Someones picked out the night before. Then, when I wake up each day, I can start the day off with prayer for the one Someone and an idea of how I will encourage the other Someone.
Pray for Someone
I have spent time in prayer throughout the day for a sweet young lady I know. Like yesterday, a person in her life that loves her, asked me to pray for her. Again, I was very happy to do so. This request was made by a dear friend and while we were discussing her prayer request for her Someone, I shared a concern I had as well.
That's when she offered me a deal. She asked me to prayer for her Someone today and she would pray for my concern. Well...I wasn't expecting that, but of course, I made the deal!
Throughout the day, I have been chatting with God about today's Someone, and when I would stop to think about the person that requested the prayer, I knew she was praying for my worry as well. Pretty cool.
This Quest was really just a way for me to do something for Someone else. I know there are plenty of people who kindly pray for me, and I wanted to reach out and make the offer to anyone who would like prayer.
It wasn't about anything I could get...just something I was hoping to give - a bit of time in prayer. But isn't it just like God to bless someone when it's least expected...or deserved?
Thankful. Humbled. Touched. Yeah...that's where I am today.
How about you? Do you have a prayer request or need some encouragement or know Someone else who does? If so, please email me or message me, and I will be honored to have the opportunity to pray for you.
