On Tuesdays, we share praises and prayer requests here on our blog. For now, it is usually normal things: sleep, good time management, Allen’s classes… but what if we all started petitioning God for future things, too?
I’m thinking of things like
- Strong relationships with our teammates in Togo
- Effective ministry among the churches in Kara
- Success in language learning
- A smooth transition for our family, and especially our kids
For the here and now, here’s a praise and a request for each member of our family:
Praise: Allen went fishing with a friend over the weekend! They caught one fish but had a great time out on the lake.
Prayer Request: Diligence and focus in school.
Praise: I had a fun time with a friend over the weekend, too! Jade and I have been friends for about half our lives (wow!) and she spent most of Saturday hanging out with me and the kiddos.
Prayer Request: Wisdom for a big decision we are making this week.
Praise: Ruth is back to sleeping like a champ, and we are so thankful. She doesn’t argue about going to bed and usually sleeps all night. Hallelujah!
Prayer Request: Ruth is starting preschool in September. Pray for a smooth transition!
Praise: Clara is such a funny kid. In this picture, I was asking, “Where is your neck?!” And she would scrunch her shoulders up and say, “I dunno!”
Prayer Request: Clara is slowly developing a bigger vocabulary. Girl loves to read, so we know it’s happening. Pray that she continues to expand her vocabulary and and explore new things.
Praise: Hudson is 7 months old and almost crawling. He is so happy 90% of the time.
Prayer Request: Our little guy is teething, meaning we aren’t sleeping much!
That’s about it, friends. We are praying for your, too. Have a great week!
