Praying at Soldier Camp

Praying for a young woman after showing the Jesus video

Our team leaders invited anyone to stay for prayer after we showed the Jesus video. One woman asked for prayer. You might not be able to spot Nancy. She is the one praying fervently for the woman; she is on her knees in front of her, asking God to help the woman. (Nancy is another one of my unsung heros.)

When I was making a Power Point presentation on our Cambodia trip, I really, really had to look hard for pictures of Nancy. She was always in the thick of the work, and maybe hard to spot. However, I know, she was busy praying as she worked, and she was praying for those of us out in the "spotlight." She was doing the hard work of prayer, which often is NOT done in the limelight. She's probably happy that, here, there is not a photo of her....but you and I know she was praying.

Phillipians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Hebrews 4:16
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Jesus is strong...but He's also approachable. He is able to carry our load...but He'll never make us feel embarrassed or defeated for asking.
