Hi there my friends!
If you’ve been around here for any length of time you know my heart for prayer. I have experienced the power of prayer first hand. One of the many wonderful aspects of prayer is that you can do it anywhere at anytime. Prayer comes in many forms from personal (silent one on one prayer with God), with one person, small group or corporate body. So many times throughout my day I stop and pray for a friend who shares a struggle. And as the Holy Spirit brings a need to mind I will pray over that need.
In the morning, before the crazy of the day hits, may be the single most important time to pray. I know on those mornings when I jump out of bed and start my day without taking a few minutes to pray over my day, the day never quite flows like it should.
One of the ways I like to pray first thing in the morning is through scripture. Praying scripture helps move me through the brain fog of the early hours. It focuses my attention on God’s Word and grounds me in His Scripture for the day.
A few weeks ago during my quiet time a scripture touched me so much I wanted to share it with my friends on Instagram and Facebook. This simple act led to something I now do every morning on social media and today I am inviting you to join me.
Each morning on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter I post a scripture and prayer following a weekly focus. I am now in my third week of morning prayers and would love for you to join me. My desire is to form a community of women starting their day in prayer. Through social media we can hold each other accountable to begin our day in the Presence of God through prayer. Will you join me? Hop over to follow me on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.
If you are not on any of those Social Media sites I will post the prayers here once a week. So as not to overwhelm you with too many posts at once we will be about 2 weeks behind here on the blog. Would you like to make sure you keep up with all the scripture and prayer posts? Then sign up to receive the blog posts directly into your email inbox by clicking on the green sign up form at the top right of the page.
