Prayers and Graces Day Six

Oh, today has been hot and tiring. I worked and then when down and set up for tomorrow, and I'll post some picks and details in a minute but I want to post the prayer before I forget. So, here is heart cry number six;

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the safety and success of this tour so far, and ask for your continued blessing on Sharon, Wayne, Christopher and Bryan as they journey through North Carolina to the Barnes & Noble in Charlotte and the Borders in Raleigh. For the staff at both stores I ask for wisdom, show them where to put the authors and how best to arrange the product to induce the most readers to come and investigate what is going on, bring out the fans that have been so touched by the books written, let those that serve in Your name at those stores be awakened to the stirring going on. From heart to heart let it be heard that the Lord is on the move, the King of Glory has come among another realm to take it back and make it what it should have been all along. I ask for strength for those that have to tear down and pack up, and I ask for those that set up that they would have refreshment and a chance to enjoy the spectacle as well as the fans. I ask that you bless the staff and their families, and for those that don't know You I ask that You open up the divine appointments long since scheduled in Your book and make them plain to Bryan, Christopher, Sharon, and Wayne. I ask for Your holy boldness to come and encamp around the authors that they see in each face, one more soul for the kingdom. One more brother or sister, one more piece of inheritance, one more chance to see another lost in Your love. I ask tonight that their sleep be peaceful and their rest deep that they would be held in Your arms and that strange beds wouldn't keep them awake nor noises or thoughts of home and family far away. Overwhelm them with Your love and let them drift into slumber knowing that the God who neither slumbers nor sleeps watches over them, and their families this night.

In the Name of the One who taught the moon where to hide till evening,

my own Jesus,
