Who Prays For YOU, Pastor?

JOURNAL ENTRY: March 5, 1996 -- (11 years ago) ~ Anna Maria Island vacation.
Finally, time to reflect and catch up! I sat on the beach this a.m. (slept till 8:15) reading Augustine on Prayer realized how long it has been since I could be still and concentrate enough for fresh ideas to develop! Augustine wrote the following in 430 A.D.

“Love, but take care what you love. Loving and possessing God is what constitutes a happy life. A man is what his love makes him, it transforms the lover into the image of the object loved. That love needs a medium of expression, that need is supplied by prayer--the affectionate reaching out of the mind for God. It is your heart’s desire that is your prayer.”

JOURNAL ENTRY: April 27, 2005 ~ Reflection
Prayer in my life, since birth and even before, has been like an underground river at times surfacing in a geyser and other times silent and unseen. But always there, bringing me ever more into His presence. There is no way of knowing who prays for Marilyn and me today. We have supporters of our ministry who tell us they pray for us every day! We must have that! There is no greater gift we ever receive! Who is praying for you? Have you recently asked for prayer?

Paul made the urgent request, “Don’t forget to pray for me. Pray that I’ll know what to say and have the courage to say it at the right time.” (Eph. 6:19-The Message)
