Each night mama and I pray together. I usually pray first then mama prays. Last night we both prayed for rain as it has been kind of dry here. This is how are prayers for rain went:
Papa: "Lord, we need rain, if it is your will give us rain this evening and tomorrow."
Mama: "Lord we need rain, we need it to make things grow, the farmers need it for the crops, I know you are listening to our prayers. and please, have it rain tonight, here at the camp they are having girls camp and they don't need rain during the day (I prayed for rain tomorrow! Whoops!) as it will hamper the girls from having fun with their day activities. Thank you Jesus for listening to our prayers."
Even as mama was finishing up her prayers the thunder started. Shortly thereafter through the night the rain came down. We got a nice little shower last night. this morning the sun was shining. The girls at girls camp are walking around outside, I can see them through the window right now. It should be a nice day today.
Yep, sure glad I have mama. Even if I get my prayers a little screwed up, mama gets it right. Last night I was a little tired I prayed for my blog roll - a few specifics but mostly kind of a generic prayer. But when mama prayed --- Oh my! she rattled off most of your names, kids names too, I was amazed at how well she knows the blog roll! For example, when she came to Robin, she talked to Jesus very personally about the baby she is carrying!
Maybe this isn't a good spiritual thought, but Papa sure is glad he has Mama backing up his prayers! Deb, you have a good prayer partner - she prays for you and your family by names!
