Prayer, a Powerful Tool!

Firstly, I want to thank each one of you who left comments and emailed me over the years to let me know that you were praying for my family and I.  God placed it on your hearts to pray and I believe every prayer went straight to the ears of the Father.  THANK YOU!


Secondly, I want to return the favour.  I was discussing with a friend recently that to say "I will pray for you" and then not do it was a bad thing.  Its like breaking a promise.  If my word is my word and I say I will pray for you, then I must.  I am the type of person that if I don't want to do something, I won't offer.  So having said that, I have been mulling over the blessing of prayer and how I can add to it.



So this is my plan:  If you want prayer I'd like for you to leave me a comment,
  • HERE, at My Daily Walk in His Grace,
  • HERE, at my Prayer Room Page
  • on "My Daily Walk in His Grace" Facebook page which you can find HERE, or 
  • leave me a message on twitter which you can find HERE.
You don't have to explain what you want prayer for unless you want to.  You can leave one word or a statement, like "relationships" or "complications at work".  I will note and diarise these comments and I commit to pray for you daily, for one week.  Now that may not sound very long or very much, but it will be one week of someone, somewhere, praying for you, seeking God's will in your life with you.

I have opened a Prayer page called "My Prayer Room" HERE and it will be where we can meet for prayer.

Plan of Action:
  1. Read this post
  2. Take action and add your request HERE(on the blog), or HERE(Facebook), or HERE (Twitter) or HERE(prayer room)
  3. I will pray for you, daily, for a week
  4. Send a praise report once you have one, because God DOES answer prayer
  5. Join in and pray for others too.  It is an awesome and humbling blessing to lift others up in Christ
James 5:16 - Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Ephesians 6:18 - Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

1 Timothy 2:1 - I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men.


God bless

  6. Thank you for sharing your BlogHop Time with us here at Tell me a Story. When someone asks me to pray, and I say I will, Usually I pray right then. If in person, I pray over them at that time. If on Facebook or elsewhere, I pray and often leave a short positive prayer comment as well. I love the fact that you are willing to pray for others and are making the opportunity for requests. Love you gal.

  8. Tracy, I wrote a post about this very thing a couple of years ago. It is important for those needing prayer to know someone is praying for them. Thank you for this reminder, I pray the Lord blesses you for this. Thanks for linking up with Thankful Thursdays.

    1. Hi Lori, it is something I think we need to keep checking ourselves on. Such a powerful weapon and we put it down too often.
      God bless

  9. I bother myself sometimes because I often (mistakenly) think of prayer as a last resort. After I have exhausted my meager resources, and misguided attempts to *fix* things myself, then I'll pray about it. Lord, save me from me!!

    May we truly know that prayer is indeed a very mighty weapon, and it is the frontline weapon of choice!

    GOD BLESS!
