on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

The 20 Day Prayer Challenge: America

Calling all Prayer Warriors!!

I've decided to do another 20 Day Prayer Challenge, like the one I did back in May. This one is very similar to the first one, but I want to do another one focusing on America.

I am a firm believer in prayer, and the impact it can make, and I especially believe in kids praying. I wrote an article about the importance of prayer a while back.

I've been wanting to do a Prayer Challenge for America for a while now. Our nation is a lot better than some other countries, but it still could use a lot of help, especially with the elections coming up. Although I do believe that no matter who is in the office, God will still be on the throne, but we still need to be praying.

Prayer is one weapon that Satan can't fight, and it has a lot of power. I hope that by doing these challenges, more and more people would realize just how much of an impact it can make.

In Philipians 4:6 it says:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Here are some things you can pray for during the 20 Day period:

- That the Americans' hearts would be softened toward God
- That God's will would be done in the upcoming elections
- That God would protect us in whatever lies ahead
- That His hand would be upon our nation
- Anything else God lays upon your heart

The challenge will start in four days, on Thursday, September 11th, and continue for 20 days until the end of this month. You are welcome to share about it on your blogs, and also put the icons on your blog. I've made some new ones for the America theme. The codes are below -- just take out the spaces.
