Pray For me Monday


JAMES 5:16
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so
that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and
effective." (NIV) 

PSALMS 116:2
"Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live" (NKJV) 

Welcome to this weeks Pray For Me Mondays with Home Grown Families and Pamela from Troop Petrie.  We are so excited to be working together on this journey!

Basically, PFMM will work like this:

  • Pamela and I will write posts on relevant topics and post

  • You can link up your own post, comment or e-mail us your prayer requests

  • We'll pray for you and hopefully others will, too

Tiffany {the single one} says:

God has been calling me back.  I've been having such a hard time with things lately and He is done with me moping around.  It is time to get back to business.

Because of His faithfullness, He is putting people in my life that are encouraging me to go toward His light.  It is always so hard let go of everything we need to let go of in order to be where we need to be.

Pray for me as I allow God to work on my heart.  

Pamela {the married one} says:

Overcoming guilt:

Luke 5:24-26 24But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . ." He said to the paralyzed man, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today." 

Do you live under guilt? Are you really nice to someone because you feel you have wronged them in the past?  Do you give into your children because you did not have time for a bedtime story or you lost your temper with them this morning? 

Well today I want to focus on giving up that guilt. In Luke 5:24 we learn how we are forgiven. 

2 Corinthians 7:10
10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 

I cannot live under guilt any longer. I can ask for forgiveness for my failures. But I cannot live with it. 

The other thing I want to focus on this week is not causing guilt. My mother made mistakes during my childhood. Mistakes I have forgiven her for. It hurts me to hear her talk about the guilt she has over her past mistakes. 

I pray that one day she will be released from the guilt. 

This week I am feeling blessed and happy and counting minutes. In just 5 days I will be going to the beach with my hero for two glorious nights. 

So my prayer request this week is that nothing comes between our time away. That my sitter has a wonderful weekend and the children make this a great weekend for her.

Pray that I find the right way to address my strongwilled son this week. My husband desperately needs a full-time job. We are waiting on the Lord and making every effort; pray that door opens soon! Thank you for this post every Monday!
