GOOD FRIDAY Reflections & 27 Inspirational Prayer Quotes to PIN
Until just a few years ago, I felt awkward about asking others to pray for me. Now I humbly request it without hesitation because (1) I rely upon mercy and grace, and (2) I experience its blessings. Prayer with words and without them is an integral part of my spiritual journey and daily life. I’m sharing 27InspirationalPrayer Quotes in hopes these pins will be pinned to Pinterest and the messages may uplift and send ripples through the land during this season of Easter hope.
GOOD FRIDAY Reflections & 27 Inspirational Prayer Quotes
What does it mean to you to carry the Easter story with you everyday?
In my devotions, two inspiring ideas and challenges (from wise friends of Henri Nouwen) continue to stir me. The first one is this: WE HAVE TO KEEP ROLLING AWAY THE LARGE STONES THAT PREVENT PEOPLE FROM COMING OUT OF THEIR GRAVES. *Gulp*
Secondly: IT IS SUCH COMFORT TO KNOW THAT JESUS’ WOUNDS REMAIN VISIBLE IN HIS RISEN BODY. OUR WOUNDS ARE NOT TAKEN AWAY, BUT BECOME VISIBLE SOURCES OF HOPE FOR OTHERS. I cannot help but dream of what it would look like should we become a people in the business of rolling away stones, of seeing each other’s wounds as pathways to hope!
Prayers for the Journey
Whether a pandemic rages or not, you must admit life is ever colored with uncertainty, joy, suffering, and hope. We simply do not know what the future holds, and it’s truly an adventure.
Thank goodness for traveling mercies. For blessings and sacred ground to journey on. I know many of you pray every single day for first responders, the elderly, health care workers, government leaders, grocery store clerks, neighbors, and the sick.
There are so many needs, and we’re in need of MORE prayer so I hope you will join me. I frequently write and sing my prayers, and here’s one from 2014:

What Role Does Prayer Play in Your Life?
In addition to quotes today, you’ll find reflections that Hello Lovely followers shared this time last year.
“I talk to God off and on all day long. My prayers are like any conversation I would have with someone, they’re not eloquent or pretty. I figure he knows exactly what I truly feel so my prayers are more for me than for him. He doesn’t need me but boy do I need him. Prayer for me is the validation for me that my God is always there. He’s my constant, my refuge, my comforter, my protector, my confidante. He’s my everything.” -KATHY
“A prayer to a forgiving Savior can change dark to light and redeem a life from destruction, altering a destination.” -JOLENE

“The most beautiful prayer to me is the honest, open and simple prayer of a child, talking to God, who he loves, about nothing special at all and heard by no one except The Father.” – CAROLE

Thank you for opening your heart and mind to these varied reflections about prayer. I think prayer is often dismissed as a passive, “nice” thing to do in situations behind our control. However, for me, prayer is so much more. It is communion, alignment, life changing and lifegiving as we open ourselves to the divine. I’m always grateful when you share your own sentiments so do leave a comment or hit reply if you prefer to correspond in private.
HAPPY EASTER, friends!
Peace to you right where you are.
