Once when our daughter was a toddler…probably 3 years old…I found her wide awake in her bed, staring at the ceiling way past her normal bedtime. When I gently asked her why she was still awake, she replied “Mommy, I can’t sleep. My heart is too busy.”
Tonight, that’s my excuse. My heart is way too busy.
With just a month to go on the countdown chart, we gathered with a handful of close friends earlier in the evening tonight to pray and worship together. This special group of brothers and sisters prayed over us, encouraged us and just generally blessed us by being present and loving on us.
We made up a list of prayer points for the month of December (scroll down to see them) that we copied out and shared with everyone tonight. I’d like to share them here too, because, well, my heart is busy and if yours is too…let’s pray together for some of these things and whatever else God lays on our hearts.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Ephesians 6:18
And because I can’t read this Scripture without hearing Bob Fitts sing it on the Highest Place album project, here’s a special treat for you as you pray. You’re welcome 🙂
