DAY 73/100 DAYS PRAYER FOR PEACE

He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

GOD’S POWER IN OUR WEAKNESS
One of the times I felt weakest in my life was when I had two babies and my husband was in Afghanistan. Sleepless nights and non-stop days left me feeling broken, physically and emotionally. Strangely, it was a time punctuated by happy moments. A postman promising to get my Christmas present to Afghanistan when I stood crying at the till, the children unwrapping Sellotape by my feet. A nanny scooping the children up for a day at her farm. A rat-catcher making it his mission to expel the rats from our garden. The same Bible verse appeared repeatedly. During that time, God showed me that his grace is sufficient, sending rays of peace and hope to shine through the clouds.

PRAYER
We pray for all military families during times of separation. We pray for marriages that are tested and children who may encounter uncomfortable emotions. May they know your grace and peace especially in times of weakness. Amen
