Scripture Sunday

Last week, I  was reading a  post by Kelly at Kelly's Korner 
The post was called "You've got a friend"
I left a comment on her post that I should "pray about it".  The "it" that I was talking about was finding friends that I would consider soulmates.  You know how you just click with some people?  And you have a connection that is like no other?  I have lots of friends here in Ohio that I've made from being a mommy.  But, there has only been one that I really, really clicked with and she moved away.  We still talk and we see each other probably once a year.  But, I still need to find someone closer.  So, I told Kelly that I should pray about it.  It was the first time that it ever occurred to me that this was something that I could  pray about. 

You see, I have a hard time praying for my own needs.  I pray for other people all day long.  I pray for people I don't even know.  I pray for people I see walking on the side of the road.  Just random prayers.  But, I don't pray for myself--except maybe a general prayer for health.  Or to thank God.  I always thank Him.  I know that God wants me to pray for myself and needs also.  To pray about everything.

6 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God"--Phillipians 4:6 NIV

"In every situation"-- I think I need to be more thoughtful in my prayers and really pray for all things.  How about you?  Do you find that it's easier to pray for other people?  

*This was a pre-written post*  I will be on vacation until March 12th.  I would love to hear your comments, but I won't be able to respond until then.  Thanks for stopping by!  And I look forward to hearing from you.
