30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 18 Praying for Your Husband

When I was in elementary school our gym teacher, Mr. Sherald, forbade us from ever using the words, “I can’t.”  This frustrated me a great deal at the time.  Athletics weren’t exactly my strong suit, so those words often crossed my lips in the gymnasium.  Mr. Sherald kept correcting me even as I finished last, […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 17 A Cord of Three Strands

Last night was our second Freshmen Football Spaghetti Dinner in the past month.  After two days of preparation, and clean-up that lasted until 11pm, I just could not get myself out of bed this morning until 8am.  Then we were off to Bible Study Fellowship shortly after 9am, while Brad walked to a nearby coffee […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 16 Perseverance

This morning I woke up feeling like every cell in my body was depleted.  I’ve been struggling with a head cold since last Thursday.  On top of that I haven’t been getting enough sleep.  Naomi was up in the middle of the night, as was Oliver.  I dragged myself out of bed despite a pounding […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 15 Talking vs. Praying

Why is it that when something is wrong, our first instinct is to talk about it?  We talk and talk, to anyone who will listen.  I think that this is especially a problem among women.  We worry and gossip and meddle when we should be praying.  We even use the times of sharing “Prayer Requests” […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 14 Failure

Last night when we went to bed, Brad reminded me that he had an 8am appointment, so I needed to return early enough so that he wouldn’t be late.  Instead I dragged myself out of bed at 6:35am, and ended up in the office listing all the things I needed to get done all week.  […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 13 Life Interrupted

This morning I was running late.  I’ve been feeling under the weather for the last two days, with a sore throat and congestion in my head and chest.  Still I reminded myself that this was the last day of walking and praying this week, and then tomorrow is Saturday.  I grabbed a few posters advertising […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 12 No Greater Joy

Every day when I’m about to leave for my walk, or immediately after I return from my walk, my two oldest children (ages 2 and 4) follow me around the house:  “Mommy, I want to walk around the high school and pray for the kids!  Mommy, I want to go to the coffee shop and […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 11 Too Deep for Words

This morning I did not know what to pray for.  I prayed for many of the same things I have been praying for lately, and observed many of the same sights.  A dozen cats roaming around outside my neighbor’s house.  A teenage girl texting as she walked to school.  Empty cigarette boxes on the ground, […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 10 A City on a Hill

Today is the first day of October.  Have you noticed yet that all of my posts are one day behind?  I actually walk Monday-Friday, but then I write up my post sometime later in the day.  They should then show up in your e-mail or on your Facebook page Tuesday-Saturday. Anyhow, today is the first […]

30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 9 Love Your Neighbor

Brad and I both grew up in rural Western Maryland, surrounded by the Appalachian mountains and rolling farmland.  Although we have lived in China and Minnesota, we still feel like country kids at heart.  So when we moved to a small city in California, we were surprised to hear of crimes so near our home.  […]
