An encouraging prayer prompt

 

For my birthday back in January, one of my gifts from my sweet local daughter and her family was a box of  24 "Prayer Cards" like the one above.  

The box itself is very decorative, so I've just had it sitting on a windowsill until this week.  I had peeked into the box back at the time I received it, and knew I would use the cards in some way, but hadn't really decided just how.

Until this week.  I decided to pull out one card per week and to pray each day with a focus on the particular Scripture on that card.  That is, I would carry on my prayer time as usual, but keeping that verse in mind as I did so.

Here is the card that was on top:

Wow!  

So I propped this card up on the window near the chair where I most often sit to pray.  And as I pray, this verse is in my mind.  God can do anything ... anything!  Those requests that seem impossible -- He can answer them.  That situation that looks intolerable -- He can change it.  That uncertain health prognosis -- He can turn it around.  Such a great thought to have in mind as I pray!

Throughout the day, I have found myself glancing at this verse and being uplifted by its truth and certainty.  Such a blessing in these uncharted waters we are all navigating these days.  I'll try and share each week's verse as I come to it, and hope that this will be an encouragement to each of you as it is to me.

  2. One of my favorite verses, and I have been coming back to that one this year in particular, as my One Word is Believe...and the other version of this verse found in Matthew 19:26 stands out to me as well. I love these prayer cards you have...what a great idea!! Thank you for sharing them with us.

  3. That's a beautiful graphic and the thought that nothing is impossible for God is so important in these days.

  4. I am glad you found a way to use them. They are very pretty. I have been so much better about the state of today's affairs when I quit looking anywhere but the Lord for our help. He is our only hope and He can indeed turn things around as He has done so many times if we just really repented as a nation or at least those who are believers.

    1. It took a little looking, Deanna. (I will actually email you, just in case you don't see this comment. ) My daughter bought these in Marshalls, so Home Goods or TJ Maxx might also have them. They are by Eccolo, and you can find their shop on Amazon: Eccolo World Traveler: Eccolo Faith Collection.

  6. Right now prayer is the number one priority and it needs to remain that way for me. My plan is to pray through every day. This was a lovely post!

    1. Yes, prayer is the number one priority every day. God is able to turn things around, and I do pray that He will do so.

  7. I think I needed to see this today, Mrs. T. This weekend, I've gotten discouraged over something that seems very hard. But nothing is impossible with God, so surely a little very hard thing isn't much of a problem.
