Can I be frank with you? Sometimes I have inhibitions about who I will let into my circle. The Lord has been nudging me to be more open and transparent with trusting fellow believers. After reading this post I know why.
How else will people know what to pray for in your life unless you are letting them in?
So often I’m tempted to keep my trials and tribulations to myself. I’m not sure if it’s pride, embarrassment, or fear of judgment that keeps me from being open. I guess deep down, if I’m being completely honest, I’m afraid that someone will use my struggles against me. Is that totally out of left field or what?
I realize the more I isolate myself when I am when I’m struggling, the more I’m hindering potential prayers. Prayers that could lighten my load, lift my mood, and bring me peace. I was challenged today when choosing my feature to venture outside of my safety zone and allow my brothers and sisters in Christ to know my prayer requests.
Please make sure you receive this valuable lesson as to why you should be a little more open with your prayer needs by reading “Giving Others the Privilege to Pray” by Emily at Splashes of Joy before linking up today.
