We Texans are a little too proud of our state.) What better way to celebrate reading than by reading John 13:7 and praying the words?
“Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.'” John 13:7 NIV
My sister gave me a book called Prayers to Share: 100 Pass-Along Notes for Believing Bigger by Marshawn Evans Daniels. The very first page seemed like the perfect petition to our all-powerful God on my husband’s behalf. So I prayed over him and then passed the note along to him, as the book intends. Now I’m praying over you.
From the book:

Replace the pronouns with the appropriate ones for the person (or yourself) that you are praying for.
Praying for you in this. And don’t forget to share on social media or with a friend who could benefit. It would mean so much to me. And if you don’t want to miss a Praying God’s Word Wednesday, subscribe over on the right hand side of this page.
P.S. I was so stoked to find an entire collection of pass-along prayer books on Amazon! If you click on the link above you can see them all. If you love to make supplication on behalf of others or would like to add a little something extra to your prayer life, I highly recommend these books! I will definitely be getting some more.

Praying God’s Word is vital every day but I love the idea of a joint, Universal day! The Word works!!!
Amen to that, Susan. Thank you.

Thank you for this prayer. I’m saying these words over my dad who is in the chair taking his first chemo treatment right now.
Peace and grace,
I’m so glad you can use the prayer, but so sorry for the reason why. I am saying a prayer for your dad right now.
Thank you for participating in Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 14.
