    Would you like to be a part of a Prayer Tree for July 2014?

    Here’s how it works.
    You can choose to be one or both of the following:

    Prayer Tree Branch
    You are someone who needs prayers for the month of July 2014. Put your name down as a Branch of the tree.
    (A branch as a symbol of need)

    Prayer Tree Root
    You are someone who is able to pray for the branches during the month of July 2014. Put your name down as a Root of the tree.
    (A root as a symbol of faith - expressed through prayer - to support those in need.)
    All that is required from you is to pray for the branches during the month of July – anywhere, anyhow, anytime – as you can. You can pray every day or every week or whenever you are able to.
    You can pray for branches by their names (if you can remember them) or just pray for the PR Prayer Tree Branches for the month.

    A few flowers of inspiration/reflection for our Prayer Tree.
    “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”
    Abraham Lincoln

    Faith

    When you walk to the edge of all the light you have
    and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
    you must believe that one of two things will happen:
    There will be something solid for you to stand upon,
    or, you will be taught how to fly​

    Patrick Overton


    Hope is the thing with feathers

    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words,
    And never stops at all,

    And sweetest in the gale is heard;
    And sore must be the storm
    That could abash the little bird
    That kept so many warm.

    I've heard it in the chillest land
    And on the strangest sea;
    Yet, never, in extremity,
    It asked a crumb of me.

    Emily Dickinson

    Please continue to add names during the month, if you wish to do so.

    If there is a particular day when you need extra prayers or have a special need/request, add that in, so those who log in that day and check this thread may be able to pray for you.

    Of course and will add Justy, too. @SeaShell is keeping track of this thread and I'm sure will update the list.

    @rosie26 Glad you picked up that Justy is not well and added her name to the list here.
    I have the names on a sheet of paper for my reference. I check into this thread whenever I can, to see if there are any new names to add to my list. If I can't check in, I include "whoever may have been added to this tree" until I am able to log in and check.
