“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,” – Hebrews 12:1
This past week, I was part of “a great cloud of witnesses” at the She Speaks conference in Concord, North Carolina. The 650 women that were there to run the race that God has marked for us grew together as we worshiped, listened to instruction, were evaluated, visited the prayer room, talked with editors and agents, encouraged one another, and served one another. In this kind of business where sin can easily trip us up, the prayers that were said for and by so many of the women and staff set the tone for the glorious presence of God during the weekend.
It doesn’t take a special conference for this to be put in place in our lives. We are today surrounded by a many witnesses as we journey through life. Sin can easily entangle us, but if we make it a priority to pray for one another, the race we run for God is smoother as we freely jump the hurdles on the track.
Prayer: I thank you, Lord, for the many women who prayed for me during the weekend from She Speaks and also the people who prayed for me from my home church. I pray that we can continue in a spirit of prayer to life one another up throughout our race in life. Amen
