I’ve just returned from my room after completing a sweet hour of fervent prayer with my sisters. At this, the conclusion of a great year of Bible study about the subject of prayer, we listened to the hearts of sisters…to their needs and petitions…and we took these pleas to the throne, where we are promised an audience by the King of Kings, also known as our Father.
In seasons of distress and grief …My soul has often found relief;
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare, by thy return, sweet hour of prayer.
Here, as promised is the prayer list from this prayer session at Polishing the Pulpit (www.polishingthepulpit.com). My deepest apologies go to the family of Brother Hillary Broome. Somehow their request got tucked beneath the stack and I missed it as we prayed tonight. So I am fervently praying for Brother Broome’s health. Will you pray for him, too? Brother Broome asked doctors to postpone his third heart catheterization of this year so he could attend PTP. He will be having this procedure next Wednesday, so let’s pray, along with Deborah and Amy, his wife and daughter, that it will go well and dispel any danger. Here’s the rest of the prayer list:
