What a thought

After taking prayer requests yesterday, it never occurred to me that you would ask me if I had any myself.  I'm so used to praying for others, rather than being prayed for.  I would ask that you pray that I love the person God made me to be.  Self-acceptance is a daily battle.  I had to step off the treadmill, and go to the bathroom mirror and tell myself I a beautiful as loud as I could while smiling.
Thank you!
God Bless!

  3. Such a humble woman! Listen, before i was used to praying for myself a lot. BUT one day God thaught me to be humble, circumstances pushed my face to the ground...i felt so fool and He said be Humble, and praying a lot for others instead myself. I obeyed yet wondering if I could.pray for myself and He wanted me praying that He lead myself to closer to Him :)

    So this post reminded me of humble :)

    Blessing my friend!

  9. What an awesome prayer request. I pray that I fulfill the destiny that God has ordained for my life. I know that I have the potential to be great and I fear falling short of what God would have me to be......

  13. God is great, he knows out hearts desires before we tell him. Pray for blessings over your life and that when you oray over others, people will see the God your serve and how awesome he is. Awesome to see more Christians out there who are shameless to talk about God. and God will honor you.
