I get prayer requests all the time, and I don't mean me personally, but via Facebook someone puts out a prayer request or I read a blog and there is a request for a prayer and I instantly pray... in my head. Just as fast as I pray I get an overwhelming feeling of the "answer". Sometimes it's good sometimes it's not so good. I prayed this morning for a friend's friend and instantly I got the feeling that this was one of those not so good outcomes... it made me want to cry. So now all I can pray for is peace and strength.
Yesterday on my way home from work I couldn't help but go into "pity me" mode. I thought of all the things I do for my family and how my husband gets to go to work, come home and not really worry about anything else. I started to cry... I think I was just overly tired... so I prayed just for peace... nothing else. I got home, and most of the laundry was done, my husband had made a spare key for the babysitter...etc. things were just 'taken care' of. So I shot up a big Thank you!! I don't know why it still amazes me, He comes through for me ALL the time. Sometimes it requires me humbling myself because my prayers are selfish, but mostly when I am really down in the dumps He picks me up :)
