{Glory Art} Scripture Challenge #8, Intercessory Prayer

Wow, what a great challenge Patter gave us this week with "Intercessory Prayer."  I can definitely relate to her story regarding waking up and praying for your daughter.  God has woke me up many times to pray for others and then times just to pray.  And, like Patter, I always let them know I was praying for them.  Not always by praying through text or email, but just letting them know God has placed them on my mind.  To see Patter's post, please go here.  I know you will enjoy it.
 
There were so many scriptures that God led me to through this study time and I am so thankful for all of them.  But the one I kept coming back too was 1 Timothy 2:1-3.  It just seemed to fit all circumstances and was something that Paul felt was necessary to urge us to do and then goes on to say it "pleases our Savior."  So here is the verse: "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior".  You see with this verse regardless of who God lays on our heart, we need to pray for them.  We may not necessarily like them, which has been the case a few times with me, but God knows the need and what that prayer will accomplish for us and for them.  Intercessory prayer is a wonderful thing and something I know has saved lives and also helped others to go on.  God is so good and I am so thankful to be able to feel His calling and His urging.
 
Here is my mixed media art for this subject of Intercessory Prayer.
 
 
Here is a close up of the verse and top of canvas!
 
 
And a close up of the bottom.
 
 
I love this image and found it by goggling coloring pages of prayer.  I printed her and then cut her out, adhered her to the canvas and then colored her.  Love using coloring pages for digital images.
 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are blessed.  I was blessed by creating it.

Jonia this is so pretty! Know what you mean about being awakened or just having the Lord lay someone on your heart. So important to follow through in prayer. God bless and hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
