How Can I Pray For You This Weekend?



The holiday weekend stretches out before me, solitary and still.  I'm good with that.  Really.

And as I walked this morning, I heard the Spirit nudge me to ask you this question ...

How can I pray for you this weekend?

Respond in the comments, shoot me an email, send me a text.

Let's see what God will do.


Pray without ceasing.
1 Thessalonians 5:17

  2. Linda, thank you for this; I guess my prayer request can be most elegantly summed up in these lines from Flecker's "The Gates Of Damascus":

    "And God shall make thy body pure, and give thee knowledge to endure
    This ghost-life's piercing phantom-pain, and bring thee out to Life again."

    1. Sometimes another's prayer becomes our own. And that is all so good.

      Lifting you up right now ...

  3. Dear Linda,

    How very kind of you. If you could pray that I would seek first God above all else and for the grace to trust Him with all my heart. So happy to read in your blog comment that you are journaling again :-) May God bless you with much joy this weekend :-) love and hugs.

    1. Oh I want to pray that prayer for you ... and with you, Dolly. Your request for faith and grace is something we all need to seek Him for.

      I'm praying for you even as I tap away here this evening.

      Bless you, friend ...

  4. Oh, Linda, how sweet of you! I would love prayers for safe travels for Virginia and me as we go visit my mother for the long weekend. Know I keep you in prayers as my blogging friend.
    Blessings!

    1. Martha, may God's 'journeying mercies' be yours in great abundance ... and may sweet memories be made along the way.

      Prayerfully written and offered up to Him.

  5. I didn't realize Columbus Day lands on our Thanksgiving Day! Because of your post on journalling I actually started journaling again! Thank you. Prayers of protection against the enemy attacks is something I think I need prayer for. And all of us really! Thank you Linda

    1. Happy Thanksgiving Day to you, Lynn! And yes, you are so right, we need to be aware that the enemy prowls around looking for whoever he can devour. I pray against that in your life this morning, that you would be conscious of the Spirit's power in your life.

      Bless you, friend ...

  6. I have a wedding to perform today (Saturday) that will keep me away from the study and my house for quite a few hours. Please pray for wisdom for the wedding but also for me as I try to study for tomorrow. Thanks Linda. Means a lot.

    1. What a privilege to pray for you, pastor, as you live out your life and ministry this weekend. May God multiply every quiet minute you have ... may you be surprised by His timing through this day.

      Bless you ...

  7. Linda,
    What a beautiful invitation....currently I am at home when I'm supposed to be in the beautiful mountains. For two days I was flat on my back due to terrible back spasms (I had an injury to my back 3 months ago). I am asking for healing for my back. I have had to cancel out on so many things due to surgeries and injuries...it seems never ending at times. I would just like a stretch of physical "normal" whatever that is. God bless you and lifting YOU in prayer right now, Linda.
    Blessings,
    Bev xx

    1. Oh Bev, this has been such a rough year for you. I am so sorry to hear of these spasms that are causing you such grief ... and to miss your trip to the mountains was a terrible blow, I'm guessing.

      I'm praying that you'll hear God's tender whispers of assurance even in the midst of the pain. That He would hear the cry of your heart for healing. That you would be flooded with an unexplainable peace that comes only from Him.

      Praying right now ...

    1. Dear Friend,, I am lifting you up to God right now ... may you find peace even as you wait for healing in whatever way He chooses to bring that grace to you.

      And may you be blessed in the process.

    1. Forgiveness is freedom, our get-out-of-jail release! It's often a process ... and true forgiveness always requires grace from God because it's just about impossible to drum up on our own.

      I'm praying that you'll find that peace and freedom, Hena. Thank you for connecting this afternoon.

      Bless you!
