A Note from Me to You. :)

Happy Monday from my house to yours!  I hope you had the absolute best weekend! 🙂

By the time you read this, I will be on the road to Austin, Texas for a conference with my new job!  So fun, right?  Please know that I will be back here on Thursday with all of my normal content, and I appreciate you giving me the space to be a working mom and share all about what we do over here in the process!  The grace of this is not lost on me at all.

Today, I am sharing about an answered prayer in our world, and I am also asking you to help me with something until I return. Here we go…

I shared this over on IG, and I am so thankful to be able to share the same with you today:

 

Two weeks ago, we lit a 🕯 at church. An outward, physical sign of a prayer request that was fresh on our heart….that Rob’s contract at work (which was to end in February) would result in a full time position. My friend @hmhornsby3 challenged our small group to pray at 2:45 every single day until God answered the prayer. (We all need a friend like this. 💕) While we waited for an answer, Rob’s company enacted a hiring freeze and we felt the gentle whisper of “do you still trust me?” embedded in the pain of what looked like another closed door. Lord, we do trust you…and on Tuesday, God answered at *2:45 pm* with an extended contract through 2020. A reminder that with God all things are possible. That God is still at work, and an answered prayer that says “It could only be me.” Today, we moved the candle to the other side of the stage to symbolize that God answered this prayer and that He provides more then we could ever deserve. The victory is His. In this, in our lives, on the Cross. Lord, we thank you for the pain…for the uncertainty, for the wisdom that is brought from brokenness. Lord, we love you so much and will always point to You. He did it again.”

So, here’s my challenge :)… If you have a prayer request between now and Thursday, submit it in the comments below.  And, I’ll be going through the list to pray for it at 2:45 pm CST every day until I get back.  If you’d like to join me in praying, pick one or two of these requests (or more if you want) and pray with me at 2:45 CST every day for them.  I am humbled to pray with and for you, friends.

Matthew 18:20  

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

See you back here on Thursday, friends! XOXO Narci

  3. I love this!! Asking for prayers for my husband and our family. He lost his job a few months ago and is doing all he can in the job search process. His area of work is pretty specific and we do not want to have to move, as we just moved to Nashville a year and a half ago and we have kids (8&12) who settled in so well. We need a God size miracle!

    • My family needs big prayers
      I have prayed so long and hard, but so much has gone the opposite way I am just so lost and do not know what to pray anymore except for The Lord’s Prayer. My husband has a terrible life- threatening diagnosis . We have been living with it since 2012 when our sweet children were just 15 and 16. We are so thankful he is still with us! But there have been health hardships along the way and work hardships that feel as if God’s favor is not with us. My parents have both passed away during this time, my sister’s husband, and our sweet two year old cat also suddenly passed away last year. He was someone two of us held onto during the sad and tough times and he brought us joy and fun. It has honestly felt like one thing after the other for years and I feel tired and worn and embarrassed about all of the hardship and hard times- there is so much more as far as delays, expenses, homes not selling; it just all seems as if the world is against us sometimes. When I read your happy blogs, I feel as if I can slip into a happy life for five or ten minutes each morning. Thank you for offering to pray for us! Please include my family on your prayer list

  7. So grateful for the compassion and love of others! My prayer request is for my father. He’s 84 years old and has an infection in a knee replacement joint. He has to have the knee replacement removed, be on long term antibiotics for 8 weeks and then have a second knee replacement. Please pray for strength and a good outcome. My stepmother has dementia which is exacerbated by stress. It’s going to be a long and difficult process. Bless you! Many thanks ❤️

  20. Thank you Narci for doing this!! I’d love for you to pray for my teenage son. He developed a stutter around age 5 and has never talked the same since. It’s been a very difficult road for him going through school, where kids can be so unkind. It has really kept him from participating and being involved in things he otherwise would love. He questions a lot as to the “why?” of it all. We know God has a plan for all of this and for his life, but as a momma it’s so hard. Thanks so much! 😊
