Look to the Hills. Day Two.

September 11.

A day to remember a sudden and unexpected tragedy. A day to mourn the loss of so many lives and our innocence. A day for hope and for rebuilding.

In the aftermath of the devastation of 9/11, people came together, pushed aside their differences, and rebuilt. Not just a city, but a country. The power behind people uniting in a purpose is unmatched.

Let’s stand together this day and prayer for children who’s lives are impacted by the issue of slavery.

Let’s prayer for our own children to grow and mature and become world changers.

If you’re just joining this 21 day campaign, you can find an explanation hereTake A Spin Down Intercession Avenue. If you are hopping back and forth between Prayer Freedom’s blog and mine, you will notice I am a day behind. I told Joy Brooks over at Freedom that means she gets an extra day of prayer :)

Prayer Freedom’s devotional today is by Jennifer Mersberger, an amazing woman of God who founded lamplight ministries. The link is HERE.

My Prayer

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Dear Kyle,

When you were little and as you grew, knowing that I wasn’t on my own as a parent offered me relief in a thousand different moments of worry. There were days and hours and seconds I agonized over your relationship with God,  your health, your self-esteem, your future…the list is endless.

But I didn’t have to shape you alone. God was there. And He’s there now. I am so grateful it’s Him I can turn to for help.


Lord, today I want to thank You for being so powerful. Thank you for seeing things we cannot. Thank you for offering your so-much-larger hands to hold us up. You know what Kyle needs to be successful in college, in his career, and in his life. So I lift up my eyes and hands to You and ask You to intercede and make things right. You are amazing today and every day.

  1. Agreeing with you in these prayers. Also thinking of you this morning for “all good things” that come down from the Father of lights. Thanks for wisdom, God.

  2. If only we would stand/band together ALL the time – through thick and thin – good days as well as bad days! I love this post, Lori.

    My motto: Love is the key to diversity!
