A Prayer Request


Today I learned that an online friend and inspiration suffering excruciating pain is near the end of his rope. Despite my usual attempt at sharing only upbeat or funny messages here, I wanted to blog about him but debated how to approach the situation.

While I contemplated the words my computer crashed – hard – giving me the feeling a higher power sent me a little message to hold off and think more about the matter. So I rebooted this laptop, went to lift weights and, upon returning, found an email from a wise friend (Annie I love you!). I put forth my concerns and received prompt reply.

Thus, at her gentle suggestion, I am requesting prayer and warm thoughts without naming this kind soul. If you feel inclined to join in, I appreciate it and believe God will have no doubt who they’re for. I feel more at peace just for sharing.

How are you feeling today? I hope the answer is wonderful!

  3. Darla, I love you. You are so genuine, caring, and so much more.

    Yes, God will know who the prayers are meant for, and He will lift that person up accordingly. And, He will bless you for caring.

    I am blessed to know you, call you friend, and have you on my journey. Thank you.

    1. I fear that my nature can be debased and evil, and I doubt my deserving of any such caring, so thank you for the positive input. Be well and blessed, my friend.
