This afternoon, a friend texted me in an emergency. She and I have different faith traditions, but she said she did not know anyone else who prayed and asked if I would do so for her.
While I hope my prayers were a gift to her, I am certain that her asking was a gift to me.
It is a sacred thing to be trusted in this way—for someone to believe in my ability to intercede on their behalf is something I will never, ever take for granted.
So, in addition to her petitions, I also prayed to be made worthy of the trust that others place on me in this most important role.
Lord, hear our prayers. ♥️
