As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Praying One For Another


As we hear such devastating news from around the world, our hearts are moved for our brothers and sisters in Christ. They are our family, although we have never met face to face.

These passages were in yesterday's reading in The Daily Light . . . 

  • Pray one for another, that ye may be healed. 

  • Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

  • Pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. 

  • I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.

  • Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

  • The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  

And so I pray with my brothers and sisters who are suffering, who are afraid, who are risking their very lives for the sake of the Gospel . . . that they would be strong and courageous and faithful. It is the least that I can do.


  1. 'The least' is so very powerful, Cheryl. Thank you for your prayers.

    1. You are so right, Barbara! Thank you for that reminder that "the least" is truly the greatest . . .

  2. The whole nightmare leaves me shaking my head. Your heart is tender and Praying is the best thing to do.

  3. I agree with Elizabethd. God hears our pleas for one another--yes as you say--"truly the greatest...

  4. I pray for mercy and strength for our sisters and brothers.

  5. our first act should be to pray..
    but woefully it is oft times the second
    or further down the list. worry. fear.
    is near the top of the list. sadly.
    and sadly i resemble just that list.
    joining with you in prayer for a terribly
    distressing situation (on many fronts)
    and the need for miracles. truly.

  6. Amen! So thankful that God is sovereign. Praying that He would be very close to believers in harm's way.

  7. All I can come up with to say is Amen! And that I agree with all the other posters. I appreciate your thoughtful, centering post, Cheryl.

  8. It is so encouraging to know that we are all praying together, friends!
