"Pray without ceasing." I Thessalonians 5:17

Welcome to "Pray It Friday!" And Thank You for stopping by.

This has been on my heart for some time and I am really excited that it is becoming a reality today. Every Friday, I will be hosting "Pray It Friday" here @ Carolina Mama. "Pray It Friday" is a virtual prayer chain if you will.

If you know, me you know I am an encourager.

The blogsphere has blessed so many of us at various times when those we know and love need prayer. We share, we post we pray. Now, I'd love to be your go-to blogging prayer chain.

Most of us are familiar with the term "Pay It Forward" - The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of third party beneficiary in which a creditor offers the debtor the option of "paying" the debt forward by lending it to a third person instead of paying it back to the original creditor.

Enter "Pray It Friday" where we pray for first, second or third party and they benefit from the Lord Almighty. We'll stand amazed at His hand in all of our lives. And we'll share it right here.

With all of my enthusiasim about this project, I am super eager now to begin praying and sharing. So even though I struggled with Mr. Linky until late last night.... :) I would still love to begin t.o.d.a.y - right now with our Prayer Requests.

For Now, here's what we'll do:

1) Please share your Prayer Request and any URL in comments below;
2) Please link back to "Pray It Friday" with this URL and/or the Pray It Friday cute button
3) *Please join in praying for each request as you read them.

Feel free to come back early and often to follow up each week. I am available through email: carolina mama1 @gmail dot com. And if you are a Mr. Linky wizard yourself :) please advise.

Jenieshell blessed me by kicking this off with the gorgeous "Pray It Friday" button way late last night. Go see her beautiful work. Thank You Jen! And sense I am hooked on Carnival - "Pray It Friday" - this first week - I want to add this to the Hooked on Friday carnival. So what are you hooked on - we're hooked on prayer - "Pray It Friday!"

Looking forward to hearing from you all and praying for you all. God Bless!

This is a terrific idea. I am always in need of prayers for patience and peace -- and the strength to live 2 Timothy 1:7: For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

How can I pray for you today? Please feel free to email me.

This week, I would love to ask everyone involved to ask the Lord's blessing and hand upon this bloggy prayer chain and those we pray for particularly.

Thank you and God Bless!

What an awesome idea!!!!

Tanya said...

That's a great idea, there is a similar carnival on the Riggs family blog, but they do it on Wednesdays, I'd love to do it twice a week.

Tanya said...

Oh, and I love your blog, it's so bright and welcoming. I'm following you!

Tanya said...

Hi again, there is something wrong with your button code,I can't post it.

I will be praying for Pray It Friday - I hope it just explodes - My husband and I have started praying every morning together before we get our day started (we work together 24/7) We need work really bad - everything is so, so slow. We are printing, sewing, making birdhouses, selling fabric - anything and everything we can do to keep going - but mainly - and truly depending on God to meet our needs - not our wants - just our needs. God is in control. Thanks Carolina Mama for this opportunity. sj

Carolina Mama said...

Thanks Tanya! The button is working if you just highlight the entire script you see in the box under the button in my post.

Then copy and paste into your blog layout or a post as HTML. Hope this helps.

We're praying for Abby Riggs. Thanks for sharing.

I'm new here! What a great blog :)

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a nice idea. Are you having trouble with Mr Linky? Did you try to post it and it didn't show up? He can be kind of flaky sometimes.

I upgraded to the silver membership for $5 and it's been worth it for me. When the party is over, you can export the links and paste them in so they're permanently on your blog. I've also gotten very good support from them when I've had issues and written with questions. Good luck! :-)

Very interesting ~ I had just thought about the phrase and idea of "Pray It Forward" and then I see you have the same idea.
I'll join in for sure.
My request: My 11 yr. old son has headaches DAILY. I am asking for wisdom and a plan of prevention.

Jen said...

Happy Saturday!! I was meaning to comment on here yesterday afternoon but got a really bad headache and was in bed by SIX pm (So not like me!!)

As I mentioned in an email, My hubby and I have recently been discussing starting a family! I am very excited but nervous at the same time! This is HUGE for us and we would really appreciate prayers for us and this big adventure!!

What a wonderful idea to lift each other up in prayer. I'll pray for this to take off and make differences in the lives of all that are involved.

Posting from Shannon "Souther Grits & Tidbits:" please pray for her Pastor's son:

"I have one to add for the prayers this Friday. Our pastors son is very sick. He has been in intensive care for 12 days now. He has double pneumonia, a staph infection and some sort of infection in his bones. He will be moved to Duke soon for an operation. (they thought it was his appendix and went in to remove it, and that wasn't it, they removed it anyway) Oh, his name is Joseph and he is only 12 years old."
