a prayer blog...

Today's post may be a little bit more personal than my normal post, and I will be honest, I think I am being far more honest and vulnerable on here than I have to anyone in a long time.  Some things have been on my mind lately and I feel that I keep seeing signs that lead me to writing this very post. 

I don't want to bother other people with my prayer requests. 
There I said it.

I often wonder if other people feel the same as I do sometimes.  Growing up I was taught to be prayerful, faithful, and true to God and all will be well.  I constantly surrounded myself with others that have the same morals and values and I have always had that one person that was my prayer buddy.  And when I had prayer requests or praises, I always shared them with others.  But as life has gotten busier and the hours in the day just seem to not be enough,  I have found myself not being diligent in confiding in my accountability partner. And not because I don't trust her or feel that I can go to her, but more because life has gotten me so bogged down sometimes almost all the time.  That at the end of the day I just don't want to bother other people with things sometimes.  And just as of yesterday, I realized that that's not being fair.  It's not fair to me, to my prayer buddy, to God, and to those around me. 

So I sat there for a while last the stillness of the night (that's a song right?) and thought this isn't right.  I realized that I need that person in my life every day.  No questions asked.  And that instant, I made the decision to be honest, and to make it a point to let you all know that I have been doing this.

I also want this be an open invitation for those who may feel the same way I do, to let me know how I can be praying for them.  I encourage my friends in the blog world to email me ( with a  prayer request.  This is my promise to you that I will pray for you. 

I hope this post finds you well....and I promise to have a not-so-serious post next time.  Enjoy your Friday, the weekend is almost here :)
