“Always respond to every impulse to pray…Where does it come from? It is the work of the Holy Spirit (Phil. 2:12-13). This often leads to some of the most remarkable experiences in the life of the minister. So never resist, never postpone it, never push it aside because you are busy. Give yourself to it, yield to it; and you will find not only that you have not been wasting time with respect to the matter with which you are dealing but that actually it has helped you greatly in that respect…Such a call to prayer must never be regarded as a distraction; always respond to it immediately and thank God if it happens to you frequently.”
I just wanted to write a quick post to thank so many of you for praying for our Phoebe girl, and asking you to continue. I read this quote last week in Missional Motherhood and have thought about it so often since. So many of you have contacted me and told me you are praying, and friends, it is helping! Phoebe has eaten some things this week that she hasn’t been willing to try since infancy (scrambled eggs! chicken!). But we need your prayers to continue, for her, for our family. So many pressing needs. It is with humility that I ask for your help by way of prayer, knowing so many of you are facing your own insurmountable challenges and heart aches! Sending much love and thanks to each of you. ❤

Joy that she has been eating a little more adventurously! That’s a huge accomplishment for her and she should be proud of herself. So glad for the update. What a good quote as well. ❤
Thanks for sharing. Your writing is an encouragement, even as you express your need – and so glad to hear about the small-but-giant victories like chicken and eggs!!
