After I did it a time or two, a couple of my friends joined in as well as my oldest son. "You started something cool, mama," my oldest posted to my Facebook page a few days later. Apparently, it was catching on, and friends of friends who thought the idea was cool, touching or just smart joined in too. I thought "Great!"
The 4x6 index cards will fit perfectly into the sleeves of the photo album. Who knows, perhaps I will someday gt to look back on answered prayers. If nothing else it will be like postcards on my journey with the Lord.
I'm still going to start on Thursday (which will be 8 days left in the month of February) and if I am right about the 88 days, I will end on May EIGHTeenth. I love the consistency of the "new beginnings" theme. Wouldn't it be funny if I went 8 days over? But I digress. I have titled this event ahead (and hashtagged it) #ProjectPrayer. I am excited about the endeavor ahead. And I also want to challenge my friends to create Prayer Projects of their own. It doesn't have to be what I'm doing, be inventive. Or borrow the #8perDay plan. This is what I know, we say say prayer makes a difference, but do we live like it? My thought has been, some of my "Facebook friends" might not ever have anyone else ever pray for them. Granted some of them are practical (or actual) strangers, and I may not have any clue what to pray, but I can pray for God to work in their lives-- He knows the right prayer even if I don't. The point is, what if IA m the only one to evr lift that person's name up to the Father. I also have condfidence that God can be a big influence in who gets pulled when, and so maybe a name will come out of that jar on just the right day when they need wisdom, or safety or strength. I don't know, but God does, and this is an opportunity to line up with His plan. I'm excited. I would love to have you join me. If you do use the hashtag #projectprayer on Instagram or Twitter if you share your adventure there. Or email me and tell me your plan, or comment here. I am excited! Join me, it's going to be a wonderful adventure!
