Collective Prayers

 "Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." James 5:16

It's been a long weekend of laying down plans with family as my husband's temperature rose to abnormal heights. At first we ignored the numbers thinking he'd shake whatever ailed him in a day or two. But last night, he burned hot and the digital thermometer beeped an alarming 104.7 marking day four.

My lonely prayers seemed to hit a wall so I called out into cyberspace, "We are here! We are here!" like a wee little Who sitting on a dust speck in Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who. And you heard my cry. Prayers offered up by friends and strangers surrounded us and we witnessed God's invisible handiwork. In a few short hours the numbers fell back to 99.7 and we drifted off to sleep.

The battle isn't over yet, as his fever climbed again today, day five, but we've been reassured it's only a pesky virus. So, I say thank you all for your love, concern and collective prayers that brought such a dramatic change in my husband yesturday. As my husband, Peter, comes to mind will you please call upon the One who is able to move this mountain of disease?

But, most importantly, let us share one another's burdens. If you need prayer for healing or any other burden, please feel free to call out, "I am here! I am here!" and we'll pray for you. If you feel so led, please share your prayer request in the comments below(anonymously or not) or you may send me a confidential, private message through my Facebook page Dawn Aldrich ~ Author. It would be an honor to pray with you.

"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
Galatians 6:2

“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign." Revelation 11:17
