Praying 7x7

You might have noticed the new button on the sidebar of my blog. For most of the past year, I've been reading Angie's blog. It began as she shared the story of her sweet Audrey, born with severe disabilities and taken to heaven to be with Jesus the same day. Her writing has inspired me--oh to have that kind of faith in the midst of such a difficult and heartbreaking time!

Her writing since has mostly focused on her other three sweet girls (as well as the ministry opportunities that have come out of sharing Audrey's story) and the challenges of being a mom that loves Jesus and passes that love on to her children. If you've never checked out her blog, you should definitely do so, but be warned--her writing is so fresh, funny, and yet insightful that you'll probably become addicted, checking back frequently to make sure you don't miss anything!

Anyway, enough about this great blog and back to the button. Recently Angie challenged moms reading the blog (as well as other readers who might not be parents, but have specific kiddos they're praying for) to be intentional and pray over your children in seven specific situations throughout their days each day of the week. I love this approach! It's scriptural, but it's also tied to events in your day which act as triggers. I've often felt since having the kids that I don't know where I'd put a devotional and prayer life anymore, yet never have I had such crucial and precious "prayer items." :) So join me if you wish, click on the button to link to Angie's post with the verses and situations and to read her much more inspiring post on the topic. As for me, I'll be praying... as often as I can remember. Hey, I'm still working on this!
