Mom’s prayers were complete: prayers of praise, thanksgiving, confession, petition, and intercessory. Here’s a little sample of the later.
Be pleased to send thy help to those whom we name, whom we lift up to thee, Amy Jones, Edith Small, Jane Bruce, Eloise; the lonely, the bereaved, the ill, the old, the unemployed, the over-worked, the discouraged.
I knew those people mom named--friends and family in need of prayer. Some things haven’t changed, have they? We’re still praying for people and I believe that a church community is a mighty good setting for it.
