"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Galatians 6:2 says, "Bear (endure,carry) one another's burdens, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ."

...rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..Romans 12:12 nkjv

Recently I have been blessed to be a small part of a wonderful online opportunity. Two blogging friends of mine have started prayer blogs. For those of you who have prayer chains at your church, this is pretty much the same thing, minus the phone call. To be put on their online prayer lists, all you have to do is go to their sites and leave your prayer request. There are women at both sites who have made a committment to pray for you throughout the week and whatever it is specifically, or non-specifially that you need prayer for.

The first site, Bearing One Another's Burdens, was started by my friend Gina from Chats with an Old Lady. She recently felt a gentle nudging from the Lord to begin this site wholly dedicated to prayer. If you have been a regular reader reader of her blog, you know that she loves the Lord with all her heart and desires to be used in ways that will bless others and bring Him glory. I think her new site does both of those things.

The second site I encourage you to use for your prayer needs is Beloved Mama, or you can leave your requests at Or, you can leave your prayer requests below. Christelle is a young mommy to three precious boys and her heart is to share Christ's love with others. Her blog does all of that and more.

I pray that you use these sites and pass them on to your friends and family. God is doing amazing things, in our homes, in our churches and even through our blog sites.

We have a prayer email list at our church. It's wonderful and it's so nice to have the emails sent to me and I can pray right there and then.

I love my daily on going conversations with God and I also love the new element that blogging has brought to my prayer life. I find myself praying while i am reading many posts.

I love that quote! We have an e-mail prayer chain at our church. I find that blogging adds a whole new element of people to pray for and people to pray for me.

Hey Joanne,

Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's amazing what God is doing in my life in the midst of such awful cirumstances. Thank you for the reminder to read my own words when my emotions start getting the best of me.

Thanks for your prayers and your friendship.

Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a note. I have had your site bookmarked for several weeks and have stopped by and enjoyed reading your thoughts.

I did know Jim Elliot well. I have a post about Jim on my site you might enjoy. (I think it is called "memories of Jim Elliot" or something like that.) Its on the sidebar.

I also read his diary many years ago and was so impressed at the thoughts that came from such a young man.

Thanks again for stopping by my site

WOW... God is truly opening the doors to the world of prayer in bloggy world... showing all of us how important it is to pray and even giving us the same verse to use in the ministries he has ordained for us :o) Very cool... He moves in mysterious ways, doesn't he?!
