Ahoy Mateys! This here be me MONDAY MOOD SWING post. 



Today's MOOD be.......PRAYER

How important is prayer in your life? How much time do you spend in prayer; one on one with the Lord? And how much time do you spend praying for others?

I am a prayer warrior. Which means that I pray for people a lot. I consider it a blessing when someone asks me to pray for them. One way I pray for others is through my volunteering at the OurPrayer website. I am a Personal Prayer Response volunteer, which means that I type out my prayer for someone and it is emailed back to them. It is such a rewarding experience and I love knowing that each person will see my prayer for them in writing. 
This organization also has volunteers who pray for people over the phone. I was unable to do this, because I have no quiet place to which I can do this...because of dogs, grandchildren, etc. 
If typing out prayers or praying on the phone would not work for you, they have several ways you could help:

Ways to Pray
