Pray It Forward

I was deeply touched recently by a friend who offered, no - suggested, getting together with me some night to pray specifically about a burden on my heart. So often we promise to pray FOR others but how often do we pray WITH others? Immediately I thought of several other women I wished would do the same - reach out to me in prayer. Just as quickly, I felt the tug of the Holy Spirit on my heart. Is there someone in my circle of friends, family and acquaintances who needs me to reach out and pray with them? That's something I tend to be uncomfortable doing - I never know whether or not I'll offend them or make them feel uncomfortable! But I can't ignore the Holy Spirit, so I'm going to attempt to "pray it forward."

Dianne, I've been browsing your blog. I like your writing style. Very candid and honest. This jumped out at me:
"So often we promise to pray FOR others but how often do we pray WITH others?"
How true. It reminded me of a friend who loves praying for others, and how long it has been since we actually sat down and prayed together. Thanks for expressing this so well.

God bless - Bonnie
