National Day of Prayer: SGN Scoops Prayer Focus for Thursday

Written by Staff on May 7, 2015 – 9:18 am -

Rick Webb Family

Rick Webb Family

Today is the US National Day of Prayer. We have several notes from our SGN Scoops friends that we want to share with you throughout the day. We trust that when you read them, your heart will be stirred to whisper a prayer to the Father.

Today’s Prayer verse: “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV)

Parker Webb

Parker Webb of the Rick Webb Family:

I would love to share about my prayer life. For many years I only prayed at the “appropriate” times such as before bedtime, when I woke up, after my devotions, before meals… Then I realized the simple fact: “God is with me every minute of every hour of every day”. When I’m with friends or family all throughout the day, we converse, a lot. We don’t just sit idle not talking. So I took the scripture “pray without ceasing” to heart.

I now talk to the Lord as I’m driving, sitting at my desk, walking to the post office, even while I’m actually eating lunch (at times when I’m eating alone). I have found that during these times when I turn my thoughts and focus on Him, it make me conscious of how I should interact with people in a more Christ like way. Or, how I handle issues in my life that need more prayerful consideration than that five minutes before bed time.

I also realized that I was actually committing myself to praying more for things I had said I would pray for. We often times have people ask us to pray for them but then we walk away and forget. Not because we don’t mean it when we say we will, but because of life. I realized that if I begin praying for those folks immediately after our conversation it helps me to remember to pray for them later too and even follow up next time we are together.

Praying without ceasing is a blessing in my life, making my relationship with the Lord as personal as my relationship with a dear friend who is with me constantly. Because He IS with me constantly!


Wanda Osborne

Wanda Osborne

Wanda Osborne of Latter Glory Ministries:

I am so happy to say prayer means everything to me. I always talk to my Father when I wake in the mornings maybe between 3:00 am and 5:00am. I talk to my Father each morning.

This is what I can testify; I bought a home and as I prayed I asked God to let me get it paid off. Being a full time evangelist who doesn’t set a specific charge means truly living in faith. One day I got a call. Someone wanted to pay my home off, praise God! They came and brought a certified check. I must say my Father heard me pray so I know God answered me.

You see prayer means everything to me, that’s why I have a prayer room and love talking to my Father continuously.
