Reflecting on what I am thankful for over the past thirty days has been refreshing.  I hope that I will reflect more often, instead of dwelling on my wants and 'woes'.

With all that I have to be thankful for, the hundreds of little things that make up my blessed life, I had a difficult job narrowing down my last November post. 

Today we found out that our dear friends tragically lost their brother.  This is just some of the heartbreaking news we have learned about amongst our circle of friends and family this month.  I am so hurt for the families who are affected.  Sadly, almost everyone will eventually go through a very painful journey in their life, and I am so much more aware of this fact lately.  But because of the Hope of Christ, we do not have to live in constant hurt and pain. 
There is nothing more effective to do for someone who is in pain than to be a prayer warrior for them; I believe that with all my heart.  Tonight I am thankful for the power of prayer.  Our Savior is living, powerful, healing and capable of moving mountains in our lives.  When we are in the deepest valleys, He comforts us and lifts us out (Psalm 23).

Without the prayer warriors in my life, I would not be typing tonight.  Prayer is powerful and effective (James 5:16).  

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me - a prayer to the God of my life.  Psalm 42:8
