Some days I want to throw in the towel and just give up; it may be due to exhaustion, sickness, frustration, a feeling that I am not enough for the task before me or ________ (fill in the blank). Honestly it could be a combination of all of those.
When I feel overwhelmed with life or just certain tasks I have a few places I look for help. One is my husband; he is incredibly supportive and encouraging. I know that many people don’t have someone like that in their life and I’m very thankful for him. Second, I have friends and a babysitter who can take up some of the slack so I can take a break. Third, I look to blogs and websites for inspiration and help figuring out tasks. Most importantly I pray. Some of those prayers are long and excruciating while others are a quick “Lord help me” as I dive back into the fray.
Did you know that we pray for you too?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Every day we lift up prayers of encouragement, blessing, creativity, conviction, etc. for my readers.
I get emails from some of you that are full of hope for healing but also frustrated because you don’t know how or where to start. We pray for you.
Some emails are full of questions and struggles you face while try to transition your childrens diet. We pray for you.
Other emails detail extremely difficult personal situations. We pray for you.
Most of you never write in (and that is ok) but we still pray for you.
I hope this is encouraging to hear. I know I feel better when people are praying for me.

This is your invitation! Do you need prayer? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, state, and need and we will pray for you. You don’t have to give me all the details and I wont share your information with outside sources. Whether you are wanting prayer to help transition to a plant-based diet, have a health issue, or just an unrelated need. We would be honored to pray for you.
Most of you are spread out so far away that we will never meet. I can’t come into your kitchen and teach you how to water sauté or go to your grocery store and teach you to read labels but I can pray for you and your family.
I also want to thank those of you who have prayed for us, our children, and our friends. Thank you for praying and thank you for the words of encouragement. It means a lot to us.
