Seeking Prayers From You

Yes, I said I would have part two of Why Did They Turn to Idolatry this week.

When I last posted, I knew with a brief trip coupled with a busier-than-usual workload at my day job, I would not have time to post something last Sunday.

Then, last Monday my husband and I said goodbye to our sweet dog of 14 years after having said goodbye to our sweet cat of nineteen years just back in September.

And the next two weeks will be unusually busy at my day job as we host a huge conference.

Between the past physical exhaustion, the known future physical exhaustion, and the emotional heartbreak of loss, I frankly need your prayers to be refreshed and re-energized for all that the Lord has called me to do for Him.

Specifically, I need the following prayer for strength to face the days ahead with His power, not my own.

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. [1]

I will get to part two of Why Did They Turn to Idolatry soon.

In the meantime, will you pray this for and with me?

    I said your prayer, and we will continue to pray for comfort and strength during this time. We know the pain of that kind of loss and life demand so much more during a time that’s hard to give. God will give you strength..
