I started this journey through Miss Clara’s prayer in late October after my pastor encouraged us all to be praying for our country as a response to the anxiety caused by this year’s presidential election. I prayed this prayer right through the election and I am still praying it in the aftermath. It’s been quite a ride!
It feels to me like things are maybe beginning to settle into a new normal and that life is moving on, especially as the holidays bring us into a familiar state of mind. I keep praying for healing and God’s blessing for the country.
I liked this whole page from James as it relates to the idea of fighting on our knees. I love the encouragement to be patient as the farmers and the reminder not to grumble against one other. Part of the battle for a prayer warrior is an inward one, to be as good as we can be for the glory of God: “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” Keep praying and being the best version of you!
