I'm not sure why exactly.
Maybe it's because my memory isn't all that great. I don't want to be one of those people that says, "I'll pray for you," and doesn't do it. So what I've been doing is praying right there on the spot about whatever it was I said I would pray about. That way, I'm not a liar. I prayed for you, just like I said I would.
But is that enough?
Sure, I prayed. I said a few words one your behalf, just as you requested. And I meant it too. But then I don't even think about it again until the next time you bring it up, if you do.
That just doesn't feel right to me. I've met people who are just prayer warriors. They will pray everyday for specific requests and they will ask for updates on how you're doing. That's awesome. I respect that.
So I guess what I'm saying is, how can I pray for you?
I've recently started journaling through my quiet time and I wanted to add prayers to my journal so I can remember to pray for you. I don't want it to be a one-time deal.
So leave a comment, let me know. I want to pray for you.
