31 days of prayer

Typing in the title to today's blog post, I think I had to run through that whole days of the month song in my head, 30 days has September, April, June and November...

I think I got it right!

My prayer life has struggled a bit lately, and I thought taking the month of August to get back on track would do me some good. In many ways. 

I've noticed an upsurge in traffic to heartfullybuilt.com lately, and for those of you who read regularly I truly thank you!

This month, I'd like to pray for you. I don't have to know you personally, but if you need prayer of any kind, please leave a comment, you can make it anonymous, or just leave a first name, in the comments section, but know that your situation will be prayed over.

God's word says in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 to, "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."

In doing what God's word says here, we are taking advice from Paul on how to live in a way that pleases Christ as we prepare for his return. I didn't realize how much I needed these verses today as I've read them and settled some things in my own heart, but I think that's how our God works sometimes :) 

"Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone. See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people," (1 Thessalonians 5:14-16).

I needed a heavy feeling in my heart gone this morning, as I've been focused on wrong being done to me. I'm so thankful for God's word to settle myself when I need it the most!
