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!
