My Mom - The Prayer Warrior

I wrote about my mom in the post below and I really felt like I forgot to include a very important aspect of her life...what she greatly valued and made her the type of person she was. My mom was a prayer warrior like you wouldn't believe! I found this paper 'For Others' among her things after she died. My mom had typed this many, many, many years ago - like when she was a teenager - so prayer has always been a very important part of her life. She actively interceded for others and I remember her going to early morning intercessory prayer at church. She also had a notebook with many names listed (mine included!) and she sincerely prayed that God would move in all of those situations. I think that's a great idea and I plan to use one of the lovely journals I've received to do that very thing. My mom certainly understood the power of prayer and I'm so glad she did!

'The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16

  1. How special to have this keepsake of your mother's and to see the legacy she left of being a true prayer warrior. Several years ago I began a journal with the intention of it being something that one day my children could read. I want them to know how I prayed for them over the years and to hear and see the words on the pages of my journal of how God is working in me.

    Thank you for sharing such a priceless gift.

  3. Michelle, thank you for stopping by. I'm so sorry for what you have been going through, esp. with your health situation. I know that God is faithful and will see you through. I can see that your faith is very strong & that is such a great blessing.

    It's also a blessing to have a praying mom. I have one of those too!

    Hugs,
