Day 2: Fasting From Sleep

Most of us already don’t get enough sleep each night, but that is usually due to our own choices. There are those in our world, however, whose sleep is continually interrupted, painful, or full of fear. It is often during those long nights that their cries reach the ears of a Father who cares. We too can choose to spend more than the average 3-4 minutes per day in prayer to One who sees, knows, and hears all needs.

*Tonight, set your alarm for a time in the middle of the night to pray not only on your behalf, but to intercede for the hurting people who God places on your heart.

WOW, this one is going to be even harder then yesterday. I will have to do it tonight as I did not read this until this morning. I do take my sleep for granted for sure!


I am so glad you all loved my Pumpkin Chili from last night, I thought I would stay in the Fall spirit this morning and make some Pumpkin Oats! First bowl this season.
