Prayer journal

This is something that I try to write in every night. Sometimes I know who to pray for and others I make a status on my personal FB page asking if anyone has any prayer requests. Some nights I get a lot, a few, and nothing. I don’t know what it depends on and it doesn’t really matter. My ‘friends’ know that I write in this and they don’t have to wait until I post something in order for them to send me their request.

This is more of a ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has trusted me & sent me prayer requests. To some it’s not a big deal, but to others it is. It’s letting someone into a part of you that is vulnerable. It’s not always easy to open up to people. So I thank you for the bottom of my heart for trusting me! I hope that you continue to trust me. I always write every request that comes my way. I may not be able to do it right then, but I definitely gets written down.

I have had so many over the last couple of years that I have had to start a second journal! I love that! This isn’t about me at all, it’s all about Him. I am just the messenger. Just because someone sends me a request, doesn’t mean that their prayer will be answered. But what it does mean is that I am in agreement with them.

“I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it
will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come
together in my name, there am I with them.”                                    
                Matthew 18:19-20

I hope and pray that people continue to send their requests no matter what their belief, He hears you and doesn’t stop loving you just because you aren’t lined up with Him. You are His child and He wants you to prosper. And don’t just talk to Him when you need\want something, talk to Him all the time. It’s not about a religion, it’s about a relationship.

Again, thank you all so much for trusting me with your requests 🙂

Peanut butter & what?!

My second child (boy) has asked me to make him this before but I thought he was kidding with me so I didn’t make it and made him something else. The request was just too far out there that I didn’t take him seriously…..until he asked me again later with a serious face.

Now I am not sure how you are with your kids and eating, but if they ask for something to eat-that’s what they have to eat! So for lunch last week my son asked for this strange request once again and I figured that I would take him up on this request. I started to make it and I asked several times if he was sure that this is what he wanted for lunch. He said yes all those times with no hesitation. I also reminded him that if I make this for him then he had to eat it. Without skipping a beat he said ‘Ok Mom’. So I made him his request and handed it to him. I made the other kids lunch and when I brought it to them I asked my son if his lunch was good and he replied with a very happy ‘YES’. I was happy that he ate it and it was something that he really wanted. I have no idea where he got the idea for this in his head because when I told my husband about this he looked at me like I had two heads-I then knew that he didn’t get the idea from his Papa.

What was this strange request you ask? Are you sure that you want to know? I mean I guess if you have read all the way down here that you are wanting to find out, right? Ok, I guess I will tell you. But I want to say that it was a strange request for me but maybe not to everyone else. Ok-I will tell you now………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
