A 10 prayer day

A rough day

Bear can measure what kind of day it is, by how many times she prays for help from the Lord . . . sending up requests for strengthening, settling in His Spirit, wisdom, etc., etc., etc.

Some days might be a "2 prayer day", or a "3 prayer day", or even a "4 prayer day".  (Regular type prayers don't get counted.  It has to be the more desperate kind, sent up while feeling really overwhelmed, or while really needing EXTRA help, to count.)

Today must have been at least a 10 prayer day, but then went off the scale.

Nothing disastrously wrong.  Just a very tough day.

But God is faithful. 

Bear fell asleep for awhile tonight, while listening to the Den's Audio Bible Radio in Ephesians . . . She especially likes the first couple of chapters in Ephesians where it talks so much about what the Lord has done for us and how He made us "no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God . . . " (Eph 2:19).  And that "by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" (Eph 2:8).  And that "now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ" (Eph 2:13).  And "... that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right Hand in the heavenly places.  (Eph 1:18-20).

Falling asleep listening to things like that can give even a "10 prayer day" an encouraging lift.
