Praying for Everyone and Everything

Sometimes someone will ask me to pray for their sick Aunt Mildred, and I’ll be praying for that sick aunt, and suddenly  wonder why I should stop at Aunt Mildred.  So I’ll pray for all the sick people in the world (wondering if it might have been simpler if I’d started there in the first place) and that leads me to think about all the healthy people in the world and shouldn’t somebody pray them, and why don’t more of us pray for all people everywhere?

I just might be guilty of over-thinking it sometimes.   Here is a good thought:

“I have always been comforted by this thought, that whatever I may forget in my own private prayers, as long as I pray the Lord’s Prayer I have at any rate covered all the principles.”  Martyn Lloyd-Jones

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
