Clothesline Prayers

Several years ago I participated in a themed swap. I believe the theme of the swap was clean. Anyway, one of things I received from Mary Ann was a small bag of clothes pins.  She included a note that said I should write the names of family members on them so that I would remember to pray for them as I was hanging out laundry.

Years later and I am still doing this.  Not only for family members but anyone that needs prayer.  A classmate of Megan's that is going in the mission field for two years, a classmate that has returned home to Burma, our church and so on.

Not all of the pins have names.  There are times when I don't pull any name out of the bag and then other times the line is full of names.

I will admit that I am good about praying when I receive a request but not always great about continuing to pray for that need.  This is a great way for me pray for those that are asking for prayer and for those that I care about.

Prayer is such an important part of being a Christian and a great way to encourage and uplift one another.  I would love to hear how you keep your prayer life for others fresh and active.

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
