Prayers & Graces Day One

Well, m'lord Batson is hopefully at his destination by now, a little weary and a whole lot excited I would think. I've decided that each day I am going to post a prayer here, things that I am praying for Wayne, Christopher, Bryan, and Sharon and the rest of their team as well as the book store staff responsible for the events.

So, here goes (think of it as my on line prayer journal and also has my way of keeping myself accountable to do what I promised to do) the first heart cry.

Heavenly Father, I ask in your name that Wayne, Christopher and his wife, Bryan and his daughter, and Sharon have traveling mercies today; that the farewells to family would be sweet, that you would sustain them through the goodbyes and encourage not only them, but the loved ones that they are leaving behind, that they and all their luggage would arrive safely at their destination, that you put people in their path this day that You want them to meet, and in turn give the words to my brothers and sisters that those people need to hear. There are no coincidences with you Lord, only divine appointments and I pray each one of those would be made this day as Your sons and daughters go forth. I ask for refreshment for them Lord as this trip is going to be wearying for them all, and I also ask that you bless them with Your own presense. Speak to their hearts this day, and let them lay down in peace and sleep, for You are watching over them.

I ask that You hold the children and spouses of these authors close to Yourself in a special way during the separation, I pray that they would have a daily reminder of Your love, that You would meet them in an unexpected and delightful way each day and whatever difficulties arise during this time You would show Yourself mighty on their behalf and they would say 'surely the Lord Himself has undertaken for us this day' I ask that You be their hedge of protection and that you guide their hands and comfort their hearts. I am looking with an eager expectation for You do to all these things and so much more.

And Lord please also tuck in this prayer all the event staff and their families, all the bookstore owners and buyers traveling down to ICRS all of the reps. and agents that know and love You with all their hearts, their minds, their souls, and their strengths.

In Christ's precious name

Answered prayer: Arrived safely in Atlanta--with a bonus of two free roundtrip tickets to anywhere! And had a lost suitcase situation for a while, but God came through, and the suitcase arrived late last night.

Thanks for the prayers!
