what we speak and what we do can often be so very different.

how often have you heard a plea, a heart crying out for something that seems so distant, and murmured 

i'll pray for you.

and then life comes and sweeps this way and that, and takes your mind to other places. and your promised prayer is long forgotten. 

have you experienced this gift though? this one where a tender sister grips your hand tight in hers and begins the whispered words

let me pray for you.

this touch of love that far surpasses. the touch of God of Earth. He intercedes still for me. my King still kneels to His Father and prays for me.

on Thursday, Sarah {Emerging Mummy} a dear cyber-sister who has never beheld my face or drawn me for a comforting embrace, prayed over me. 

precious words from St. Teresa of Avila, for my heart and for all those who have pressed "follow" at her corner of the world.

i am humbled by this gift of supplication.

this knowing that i am loved by one whom i have never seen and never shared even a mug of steaming coffee with in this lifetime.  

these precious moments are not just in the comfort of our living rooms. 

we share this friendship -- this sisterhood -- from afar, with those who hold our hearts whom we have never met. 

this knowing that, one day, we shall kneel in praise together in the realms of Heaven. holding hands in love, as sisters, over the coffee and cinnamon buns that i know must be waiting for us there. 

no more lip-service from me now.

you are covered in prayers, dearhearts. from me, and from Him.

as my sweet sister Sarah did two days ago, i do the same now for you.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May today there be peace within.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and 
allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you.
St. Teresa of Avila


  1. beautiful and wonderful. it means so much to me when someone not only says "I'll pray for you" but actually "let me pray for you right now." truth.

  2. Amen, my dear girl. Amen, amen, amen. Sisters and friends take many forms and seasons in our life. So thankful you've become part of mine.

  3. Such a beautiful prayer. I read it, imagining you, my stranger blogger, was praying over me. May God bless you.


I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there's nothing but light when I see you. :: Shinji Moon
