Have you ever run into someone you haven't seen in awhile? Or someone is on your mind and you can't for the life of you figure out why? I do not believe in coincidences. I believe that the Lord places people in your life at times when perhaps they need the most prayer. I saw an old friend of mine at a coffee shop yesterday as I was working on one of the last papers I will ever write in my college career. It was so great seeing her, and it just reminded me of the Lord's divinity and how I need to be more obedient about praying for friends of mine. I am learning that I need to be more intentional about prayer. I am learning that prayer really does matter, and that it is one of the ways you can draw so near to the Lord, and a way your burdens are lifted. I so badly want to be a woman who's first reaction is to pray in any and every circumstance. That people would think of me as a woman who prays, and trusts my word when i say, " I will be praying for you."

Will you join me in this journey to pray more? To be men and women who turn to prayer when your life is filled with blessings, and in times when you need help weathering a storm. In times when you are frustrated or saddened by things your co-workers say, will you pray for them? When people pop into your mind "at random," will you stop, take a second and pray for them? I will be trying hard to do this. For those of you that know me well, help me with this. Please encourage me in this.

Love and Prayer
