First, I confess that I have been proud and boastful lately. I have been procrastinating and dishonest. I have not lived up to the standard Christ set for us, nor the standard I set for myself. For this I am truly sorry and ask for forgiveness.
My wife and I are in a bind. Her car broke down and I don’t have the funds to buy a new one. She needs it to get our daughter to school, run errands, make medical appointments and so on. Plus I was just getting a side business started and was using her car to help get supplies and materials.
In the past, I’ve tried to rely only on myself to get things done. You know? I’m an American man and I can handle anything. Over the last few years I’ve been learning about the power of prayer and I’ve been exercising it in small things. This is the first time I’m really leaning hard on the power of prayer for a larger thing.
Please pray that my heart will stay focused and steadily relying on the Kingdom of God and that the exact car we need will come to us under grace and in perfect ways.
I also need prayer for my relationship with my wife. She has been under a lot of stress lately and it is wearing us thin. Please pray for both of us that we can lay our egos aside, be vulnerable and trusting with each other, and truly unite as a couple.
