A Simple Way to Pray for Your Neighbors: Part Two

If you didn’t get a chance to read the first part of this Prayer Tip, click here first!

Remember our two young ladies from Sacramento, CA, Makaiah and Zalaiah? Their mother sent an update on the family’s experience of praying for their neighbors!

They began having at least one or more requests every single day from neighbors. And, they have been very busy praying for each and every one of them.

God has been giving the girls some new ways to relate to the neighbors as they have been praying.

Here are some of the changes they recently made:

  1. The girls wanted their neighbors to know that they really are praying through the prayer requests, so they updated their sign from “How Can We Pray for You?” to “We Are Praying for You!”
  2. They added a small tree with the names of each person or family they are praying for. For example, Adam lost his job so the card reads “Praying for Adam.” Neighbors can walk by and see their names on the tree knowing that Zalaiah and Makiah are on the job interceding for them!
  3. The weather is getting warmer, so they have also added a small bucket with water bottles and ice for people passing by to have something cold to drink.
  4. There is also hard candy which doesn’t melt in the sun for people to pick up.

The girls’ mother, Shari, says, “We are going to need a bigger table!”

PRAYER, PEACE, and the PRESENCE of GOD by David Butts

As believers, we are supposed to walk in the peace of Christ, yet we all have stressful issues and circumstances that rob us of this peace. Subtitled “A 30-Day Journey to Experience the Shalom of Jesus,” Prayer, Peace and the Presence of God powerfully encourages the reader on how to hold onto that peace in any circumstance.

The author, David Butts, started writing this book and 10 days into it he got word that he was in stage 4 with a rare form of lymphoma. God allowed him to live, in a greater way, what he is challenging readers to do in Prayer, Peace and the Presence of God.

His 30-day devotional will encourage, inspire and challenge you that you, too, can experience and walk in the peace of Jesus no matter what circumstances you are walking through.
