Praying Down the Tracks!

Hey Friends! Happy Monday to you!!

I am spending the morning praying and preparing for our Monday Night Bible Study tonight, and I've been reflecting on one of my favorite quotes on prayer....

"Our prayers lay the track down on which God's power can come.
Like a mighty locomotive, His power is irresistible,
but it cannot reach us without rails."

Isn't that an awesome visual?! I love thinking of a huge, mighty locomotive filled to overflowing with God's power and blessing...and how my part is to pray and "lay down the tracks".

I'll often picture this mighty locomotive in my mind as I pray for my husband..."laying down the tracks" as God's power is unleashed in John's life as he heads off to work.

Or "laying down the tracks" for my children...asking God to come "roaring through" with His protection and goodness and grace in their lives.

You get the drift.... :)

And it breaks my heart to think of a Powerful Steam Engine, filled with divine blessings and miracles, waiting patiently in the station, desiring to have rails on which to run.

Let's pray down some tracks and watch God's irresistible power and might blow us away!!! Woo Hoo!! :)

And Thank You, dear bloggy friends, for "laying down the tracks" for me. Over the past few weeks, you have blessed me beyond words with your prayers, notes of care and concern, and encouragement. I am humbled and grateful.

(And for those of you who are praying for me on Tuesday's & Thursday's while I work on writing my "Red Hot" Bible Study ~ bless you!! I can totally sense your prayers!! Some days I can barely write fast enough to keep up with the "down load" I am receiving. I can tell others are praying!! Thank you!!!)

What about for there a way that I can pray for you this fall season??

Can I help lay down some tracks on your behalf??

I would appreciate prayer for faith to believe what God tells me and not the lies of the enemy. It has been a rough few weeks lately--physically, mentally and spiritually. Consequently, it has been difficult to focus on the truth of God's word and the enemy has used the opportunity of bombard me with lies. Please pray for my faith to be strengthened and that I would trust God's word and His goodness.

Thank you, Cindy......I always enjoy reading your blog!
Girlfriend, you are "redhot!"

My friend,

This is powerful and priceless!

I'm laying down prayers for you. Please do for me as I RETURN to writing my book and really wrapping my heart and all around it and not allowing other distractions to hinder again like wondering if there are just so many (great writings) out there that why should I bother to write. Then the Lord reminds me that He's made EACH OF US differently and has placed a different experience and journey before each of us to share as He leads.

For Him to be pleased I put pen to paper, finger to keyboard and write.

Your prayers are appreciated. You have mine. Love you.
