Persistent Prayer + Free Printable!

I am so grateful to have friends who have been willing to step in here while we're dealing with the health issues of my daughter, Peyton.  I'd love to welcome my friend Stephanie back to my blog as she shares with you about prayer.  When you are finished showing her some love, you can pop over to Peyton's blog to find out what we've been going through.

Can I tell you a secret? I'm not very good at prayer.

I forget. I wait till I go to bed and fall asleep in the middle. I ask a lot and often ignore the praise part.

I don't make New Year's resolutions I know I won't keep. For the last few years, my only resolution has been PRAY MORE. I still fall into the trap of most resolutioners and forget about it a few months in. But I'm working on it.

I'm praying for you, still praying for you

But there are times when dear friends need our prayers more than just once or twice. Perhaps they have a medically fragile special needs child. Perhaps they are serving as a missionary in another country. Perhaps they're battling cancer. Perhaps they've lost a child or loved one.

We need to be on our toes praying persistently. Consistently. Me included. Because our prayers go farther and do more than we may ever know.

Are you a prayer warrior? How do you remind yourself to spend time with God?
