My heart has been heavy lately, reading messages, comments or emails from beautiful women who are facing trials of many kinds, women who struggle to face each new day in fear of what may come next, women who are weary emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Battles are never fought alone so today I'm asking all praying readers to join with me in lifting these precious souls before Jesus in heartfelt prayer.
Perhaps you identify with the women I've described and are also in need of heavenly intervention.
Can I ask you to trust that over the next week your needs are being brought before the Cross as myself and others who are reading this blog post join hearts and prayers together across the world in every time zone for you?
You may not be a Christian believer and that's okay. All I ask is that you let us pray for you. That you allow our love for a fellow human being made in the image of God to be comforted, encouraged and lifted in prayer, that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding would fill your heart and mind through Jesus who loves you.
Before I had my first baby I was very shy (still am actually) and didn't like having doctors poking or prodding me, but the experience of giving birth kind of breaks down a lot of that because you are placed in a vulnerable situation and exposed in ways you've not known before.
If you've never been prayed for or never opened up about your deepest needs and trials then you may feel very exposed and vulnerable by choosing to do so now, but sweet girl, you are precious and though myself and those who will be praying may not personally be able to alleviate your struggles, there is One who can give peace within your soul and loves you more than you can comprehend.
If you have a prayer need please write in the comments below and we will pray.
In fact I will check in twice a day for the next week to pray over any new requests or needs, and I'd ask that others would do so as well.
If you feel you cannot write down what you need then simply say "I need prayer" because the Lord knows exactly what those needs are and we will pray He provides in the way that best suits your circumstances.
Sisters in Christ, will you stand with me in prayer this week?
To God be the glory, great things He has done.
