This photo doesn’t have much to do with this post, other than the fact that I’ve meant to post it for a couple of months but have been too occupied. April showers are supposed to bring May flowers. But not with crazy New England weather, oh no. I found these tulips the first week of April.

The past month has reminded me of how much we need to pray and how much we need to ask others for prayer. Interestingly enough, the Sunday sermon series has been on “A Better Way to Pray.” It’s hard to put a finger on just one thing. It would be too much to share all that we’ve been doing and thinking about. Suffice it to say that it’s all that life entails physically, spiritually and emotionally with ourselves and those around us. We are often weary and sometimes discouraged. Note: Many great things are also happening around us and we are genuinely happy and excited. It’s not all doom and gloom here. Really.

A couple years ago, e’s paternal grandmother passed away. As most people, she had her share of quirks but one thing that impressed me was the amount of time she spent praying. Among the other things about her, I’m starting to realize how I miss her praying for us. Her prayer was not a couple sentences here and there but probably hours at a time daily. Ok, maybe she had a lot of time and maybe she had a tendency to repeat herself but still–hours of prayer a day.

I don’t know if I can pray for an hour but I know that I need to do so more. And I would humbly ask that you remember us in prayer, even a few sentences at a time. Pray not for the weariness to leave us (though that would be nice) but that the weariness would drive us to pray.
