About thirty years ago–maybe more, I partnered with a good friend from church. We decided to pray for each other regularly and we continued for many years. We still call on each other when we have a great need for support even though we no longer live in the same city.
Today I have a personal prayer partner in my writing circle and I belong to a group of writers who agree to pray for each other from month to month as we post our needs on a private forum.
I am so grateful to have these awesome women in my life. I know that I can count on them to support me in every way and to share honest opinions and advice when I ask for them.
This week I’ve had various challenges in my personal life and professionally. It’s wonderful to know I am not alone. Praying friends are standing with me.
If you have a prayer partner I’d love to hear about your relationship. And if you don’t, may I suggest you invite someone to join you? There’s nothing quite like another person to help carry the load. And as that person is there for you, you can be there in return.
