Today somebody prayed for me.
I was feeling terrible today. I was physically exhausted and emotionally dry. Through most of the morning and early afternoon, I wondered how I was going to productively make it to the end of my workday. Around midafternoon, I gradually began to feel slightly more energetic. I could also feel my attitude somewhat improving, although I was still quite ready for the day to be over. On the drive home, I felt a resurgence of life throughout my body. By the time I pulled in the garage, I felt refreshed and ready to face the challenges awaiting me at home :-).
My lovely wife asked me how the rest of my day went. I said “OK” (which for me means really well). I further explained that “Somebody prayed for me. I felt better later in the day.”
Brenda smiled. “What time did you feel better?”
“Why?” I asked.
While still smiling, she replied: “We prayed for you when I put the littles down for nap, somewhere around 1:30. We prayed that God would give you the strength to make it through the rest of the day.”
“I felt better somewhere between 2:00 and 3:00,” I said. While it wasn’t immediate, their prayer was answered within a relatively short amount of time.
We both stared at each other, grinning ear to ear.
My family prayed for me today and God answered that prayer. I am greatly blessed.
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. (Jas 5:16)
We thank everyone who prays for us. May the Lord bless you in your faithfulness.
Still trusting in Him,
