It's day 1 of the Summer of 7 stress/prayer challenge. I'm officially just going to call it the "Prayer Challenge", because that's what I'm focusing on.
I was suppose to get up at 5:00 a.m. and guess what I found out... 5:00 a.m. is VERY early! And I confess, I hit snooze and slept until 5:39. It did feel good once I got up to sit and listen and read my Bible and enjoy quiet and sunshine and coffee and Jesus.
I decided that for this week I will pause at 7 specific times each day to pray for 7 specific things.
8:15 a.m. - Kids/Education
10:15 a.m. - Poor and oppressed
12:15 p.m. - The Fatherless
2:15 p.m. - Mothers around the world
4:15 p.m. - My marriage
6:15 p.m. - Church (my local church and the church as a whole)
8:15 p.m. - Outreach Team (A ministry I just joined)
P.S. I was very glad this morning to put on different clothes and I was most excited to put on some big earrings. Funny thing, most of the clothes I'm wearing are clothes from the 7 challenge except my shirt.
