SSCC #16

Hi everyone! Day two in my Christmas program today...just a quick post, as I have to run...

2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (NIV)

As Christians, we are called to pray. To pray for those we know and love, to pray for the poor, and yes, to even pray for our enemies. But I fear that most of us don't make enough time for prayer. I once heard a startling statistic about the percentage of Christians that pray everyday. Now I am not trying to make you feel bad, I have struggled with this myself...so maybe we should make a pact to try harder at this prayer thing. I do know that when my prayer life is healthy my whole life seems to be better (and even when it's not, I seem to be able to handle things better). :)

So the challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is to pray...pray for someone else, and let them know by making a card. On this card include some sort of person. :) Simple enough, huh.

Here's my card:



Ok...now I seriously got to run. :) Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!!

I really liked this choice of images for your card Pamela, the flower buds flying off into the distance are like our prayers wafted on the wind going heavenward. Lovely ribbon and border too.
