How can I pray for you?

How can I pray for you?

A simple question. A powerful question.

In fact, I think it’s the most powerful question I have found lately.

I first noticed how powerful this question was when I became involved in small fellowship groups at my church. Then my husband and I used this as part of our daily check-in with each other, and then I started asking my daughters this questions more often (it has been especially helpful with our 6-year-old). Currently it is one of two questions on the white board in our kitchen and our daughter will sometimes answer before we get a chance to personally ask her (I love that). And then I started using it in other relationships … and in my social media world.

I always feel honored to pray for each and every request I get. The request bonds us in a way that many other conversations cannot.

I plan to continue to write about this on a regular basis as I grow in my own faith journey and as I continue to accompany others.

And, I will continue to ask — here and elsewhere —

How can I pray for you?*

Love and belief,

*and, seriously, I read each comment I get, so let me know!
