An Offering

I would like to post something profound, something witty, something useful, or something with spiritual insight... I confess, I'm highly distracted today. We have family visiting, yes, but the main source of my distraction is that dear friends in The Common Room are dealing with their tiny baby/grandbaby having surgery today at less than a month old. The details of the wee baby man are all on The Common Room blog, but today I have committed to "pray without ceasing" for the little one, the doctors, and all of the family, and I just can't think of much else.

Please say an extra prayer for this very sweet little one and his family today. This family knows God, and God knows them. They need extra love and prayers today.

Psalm 32:6-7 - Therefore let all the faithful pray to You while You may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them. You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.

Matthew 19:13-14 - Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 21:21-22 -
And Jesus answered them, "Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith."

1 Timothy 2:8 - I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;

1 Peter 3:12 - For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer.

Revelation 8:3-4 - And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.

  1. Dear ChurchMouse, I just found your blog, via a mutual friend at the Common Room. I am praying with you for her little grandson. I'm writing to say the verses you wrote here were a blessing to me today. I am often distracted and even at times downcast over the uncertain future of our little granddaughter and our coming son (both involve adoption), and those Scriptures were a balm. Psalm 112:7, he "shall not be afraid of evil tidings, his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord." Thank you for these reminders -and for praying for the dear little Striderling.
