The gift of Prayer part 1

In the run up to Christmas I believe that giving others the gift of prayer is one of the most powerful things you can do. It is a lifetime investment in their lives and helps them in ways they did not even know they needed help. My mum came home from a prayer meeting yesterday and when I asked her what she had been praying about, she told me it was for her children. I cannot begin to properly explain how comforted and safe I felt. You see my mum is a prayer warrior; a woman who spends dedicated time submitting her battles, worries and successes to God. It is one of the main things I learned from her and an area I am growing in.

So I thought what better way to spend the run up to Christmas than praying for people/ a specific person/ situation. Today I am praying for all those who have lost people due to war and hatred. I pray that they will be comforted by God and that He will touch their hearts and minds, that they will be able to forgive the perpetrators and live free from the prison of unforgiveness.
