A long time ago, someone told me that the most powerful thing you can do is say to a person is, I’m praying for you, and mean it.
Because it’s so easy to flippantly say that you will pray for someone and then just don’t. As a matter of fact, I’d bet that that happens way more often than not.
So today when I got a text from a friend who lives, like, a million miles away, telling me that she prayed for me this morning, despite me not even asking for it or knowingly exhibiting red flags for needing prayer, it really brought me joy. Because I knew she meant it.
It really does have power.
And so I texted back a heartfelt THANK YOU and pleaded for more. Because why not?
If anyone else wants to pray for me, please do; I’m currently in the process of weaning myself off of caffeine and man —
it is a HELL of a drug.
