Happy Monday Everyone! Hard to believe it is already the last Monday of October! Here in California we are still experiencing 90 degree days. I know the rest of the country thinks we are crazy but we are longing for some actual fall weather! Of course, “fall weather” to us means high 60’s, maybe a little rain storm here and there and some cool nights! 🙂
We are always so thankful to have our readers join us here as prayer warriors on Mondays! Today we are excited to welcome many new friends from The Queen Bee Market this past Saturday! We are glad that you have joined us and hope you will stick around to be a part of the Throne of Grace community.
On to the prayers and praises for this week…
• Praise the Lord with us for a super successful boutique at The Queen Bee. It was a big deal for us to be a part of this handmade market that we’ve been shopping at for years and never imagined we’d be at the point where we could actually be a vendor. The amount of skill and creativity represented at The Queen Bee is quite intimidating! That combined with the fact that it is a secular marketplace gives us great reason to rejoice that shoppers were craving God’s Word and so enthusiastic about our products! Here is one photo for a quick peek at the day. We’ll be posting more photos with a recap of all the great Queen Bee finds next week on Throne of Grace Thursday, so watch for that!
• Please pray with us as we prepare this week for our next (and last!) big boutique of this season. We will be road-tripping it to Chandler, Arizona for the Believe Boutique at Cornerstone Christian Church. Please pray for travel mercies for myself (Molly), Deb, and my mom, Sally. Pray for God’s protection over our car as we make the 8-hour trek on Thursday (the 1st) and then return on Sunday. Please pray for our husbands and kids while we are away. We would also greatly appreciate prayers over our health as we travel. I’ve been battling a cold this weekend and hoping to be back to 100% before we leave. Deb often struggles with her health while traveling and had a difficult time last year when we went to this boutique. Bless her bravery for trying again this year! Let’s pray boldly that the Lord would keep her at 100% the WHOLE WEEKEND!!
• I’m still waiting to get an update on our friend Jacob as he battles Hodgkin’s disease. However, let’s continue to pray that God would be the source of his and his family’s strength and peace during this time. Pray for COMPLETE healing and that God would be glorified as the Great Physician!
• Please pray for a dear customer in Scotland named Michelle. We’ve had the joy of sending several packages to her and her family over the past year. We have another one going out today – this one containing, among several other sets of prayer cards, “How to Pray on the Mission Field”. Sweet Michelle considers her surroundings to be quite a mission field. Recent statistics show that only about 10% of Scottish people even attend church and the percentage who claim to be born-again believers is even smaller than that! Let’s pray that the Lord would make Michelle a bold and effective witness for Christ to her family, friends, and surrounding community!
Thank you to all the prayer warriors who faithfully share the burden of these prayer needs. We would love it if you would take a minute to let us know you are praying today. It is such an encouragement to hear from you! As always, if you have a prayer request or praise you would like us to share in next week’s post, please email us by Friday at noon (PST), at:
