Laying Down Tracks for Henry

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

I wasn't planning on posting today, but I don't think I'm in charge here.

This morning, I got an email from a friend updating our small group on a long-term prayer request. The news wasn't good. She directed us to a blog post explaining the situation, written by someone I don't know, about people I don't know, but still - I felt connected. I feel connected because our group has been praying for this courageous family for months, and now they need more prayers.

I prayed, linked up Monday's post with Soli Deo Gloria, and then a post in the link-up caught my eye: Praying Down the Tracks. It is about how prayer can lay down tracks for God's mighty locomotive of blessings. I like that visual. I can relate to it, because I looked out of my bedroom door and saw this in the hallway.


Then it was all too much - a baby boy in the hospital waiting for a miracle, tracks of prayer, my train-obsessed boys, tracks down my hallway . . . I went back to my computer. I felt compelled to contact someone I don't know, Haines, who wrote that beautiful post, to ask if I could share it with you all in an effort to lay down more tracks for Henry - she said yes.

Will you read Haines's post and then lay down some tracks of prayer for Henry?

Once again, linking up with:
Because I know those girls pray!
