Hey friends!! I received the following Mailbag Question today...
On your blog, awhile back, I pulled off a list of ways to pray for your husband, and one for the children. I had them printed, but in my organization lost them—is that possible? Haha! Anyway, I didn’t see a search button on your blog, do you remember which post it was in and could you let me know?
Dear C.S. :)
You have a good memory! My Prayer Focus month was in July of 2009. For a quick review of the original post, you can click here. I've also put new Prayer Resource links at the bottom of today's post. And remember...
When men work, men work
but when men pray....God works!!!

I've been looking for a great resource to lift up the crisis in Haiti each day in prayer. Clearly we need to pray for many miracles for Haiti and its precious people. If you come across a resource, prayer calendar, or want to make one to share, please let me know. I'd love to pass it along!
Do you have any prayer resources that you have found helpful? Books that have encouraged you on your prayer journey? Stories of answered prayer?? Share with us please!!
I'll close with one of my favorite quotes on prayer...
"When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When she stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When she stops praying, the devil shouts for joy. "
~ Corrie Ten Boom
Let's stay on our knees praying!! Prayer is the work!!
And may the Lord bless you with a fresh measure of His presence and His peace!
P.S. Speaking of prayer, I am knee deep in a number of significant writing/speaking opportunities. If the Lord brings me to mind, would you mind praying? I am asking God to prepare the hearts of the women, to know specifically what He wants me to say to each of the gatherings, and for health and protection for me and my family. I would be so grateful! How can I pray for you?? :)
