Day 17: Love Sends a Text (or something like it)


When I married Brent, I hit the “In-Law” lottery. I really did. I heart all of Brent’s family.

My sister-in-law, Erin, is married to Brent’s twin brother. She is amazing. I could list one hundred reasons why she is wonderful, but today I will list only one.

She let’s me know when she is praying.

It is not uncommon to get an early morning text from her saying, “Praying for you this morning! Tell those boys we love them.”

Mmm. It feels so good to be on some one’s heart.

I also received a message from one of my dearest and best two nights ago. She lives in Florida. Her message said, “Hey, the Lord has brought you to mind like crazy. So I’ve been praying for you. I am wondering what is going on. Call me back!” {Feli! I plan to call you today!}

Doesn’t the Lord do this? Bring people to mind? And nine times out of ten…it is not happenstance. It is for a reason. An unction from the Holy Spirit to PRAY for them.

But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. Luke 22:32

Jesus, in this memorable passage of scripture, tells Simon Peter, Hey, I’ve been praying for you. I can only imagine how Jesus’ words made Peter feel…the Son of God praying for him. Amazing.

And you know what…He prays for you, too – Romans 8:26.

Day Seventeen: Love Sends a Text (or something like it)

Today, let someone know you’ve been praying for them. Tell them. Text them. Call them. Email. Facebook. Tweet them. Hand them a card. {Golly geez, we’re so connected.} Let that person know that the Lord has them on your heart. How special, is that!? It will bless them, guaranteed.

Do you have a cool story of someone praying for you, right when you needed it?

  1. Yes, I do have a cool story – from when you sent me the sweetest note a few weeks ago saying that the Lord had brought our family to your heart. It was such an unexpected and kind note, yet probably took about 20 seconds to put together and send. Thank you so much again for your thoughts and gentle reminder of how important it is to connect with one another. Happy Day, Becky!Cathy Coon

  2. I volunteer at a local crisis pregnancy center. The lady I work with has taught me so much about prayer. I saw her tweet that she was speaking this week. I tweeted that I would pray then the next day checked on her talk-the Lord brought her back to my mind. She responded so blessed. God is using her to minister to so many and I know it must be hard to share her story. I know encouargement is needed to share the hard times. I pray that I remember to contact people and pray when the Lord prompts me.

  3. One time I was driving down a six-lane road. There was a truck in the far right lane, and I was in the lane next to him. All of a sudden, he did a u-turn right in front of me. I slammed on my brakes to avoid broadsiding him, and all was well. I called Chris & found out that he had just been praying for me and the kids!

I means so much to hear from you!
