Purpose & Prayers

The other day a friend of mine, Booshy, responded to a tweet I had posted.  I am getting ready to update my prayer list.  Does anyone need or want to be added?  Is what I tweeted.  I'm paraphrasing here.

She responded here on my blog.  She asked if we could pray for purpose.  For serious.

So I did.  Right then and there.  Then while we were on our way to an Oklahoma State Wrestling dual after church on Sunday, I found something that had been hiding in McD's Bible.  Seriously, it was hiding on page 1137.  It is titled Perspectives from the Bible.  What to read when:  The Future Seems Hopeless, Seeking God's Direction, etc.

Seeking God's Direction.  I would put that right there with Purpose.  He knows my purpose, he just hasn't shown it to me yet.  In fact, someone else (I'm sorry, I can't remember who) said that maybe I am doing what I am intended to do but doing it unknowingly.  I paraphrased that too. 

After finding the Perspectives from the Bible I decided that I would share what I found with you. 

Here are the scriptures it lists to read when one is seeking God's direction. 

1 Kings 3:1-14

Proverbs 2:1-6

Romans 12:1-3

Ephesians 5:15-17

Colossians 1:9-14

James 1:5-8

Now, Booshy might not have thought of this like I did, but nonetheless I am still adding her to my prayer list.  I pray that she finds her purpose.

Tomorrow I will be updating my prayer list here on the blog.  If you or someone you know needs prayers then please email me at anotherchanceranch (at) gmail (dot) com, or leave a comment.

    You are amazing, my friend. Thank you. I really needed that. I’m going to read those tonight and hope I find peace and comfort in the words.
    Tomorrow is my birthday…I’ll be 28. And it scares me…the age + lack of a sense of purpose. But you’ve given me this glimmer…thank you so much.

    FYI: I read through all of those last night and the last one spoke to me the best 🙂

    I love your subjects. They seem to very much be right on track with what’s happening here most of the time.
    I could use luck, not sure if prayer is the answer for that though. 🙂
    Oh, if you’re updating — Paulette passed away a little before Christmas. She fought her pancreatic cancer as hard as she could, but it was just too much. The prayers were very much appreciated. <3
