By the very nature of my call to pray for people, I get just that—people to pray for; by the very practice of keeping a daily prayer list, I get just that—a list of people to pray for. But four intense, immediate ones is more than usual. In fact usually I don’t personally know all the people on my list.
Until the right time to visit, thank God for the telephone and email as a way to keep up. Thank God for the time I have at the cottage to pray--time to empty my head of the chatter that gets in the way of prayer, and then I just need time to pray.
