Shirley Holden holding the 2018 prayer diary

From the Desk of Shirley Holden

By | General

I’ve been receiving the prayer diary for at least 14 years. I feel like I know some of the partners in the prayer diary personally because I’ve been praying for them for so long. I’ve watched their children grow throughout the years.

The Prayer Diary helps me to know what to pray for more specifically. Not only do I pray for the organization, I’m also so thankful for the prayer cards that I received from Hope and Healing International staff after they prayed for myself and my family.

I pray short prayers often throughout the day. Some of these prayers are to tell God how beautiful a flower is or something I see in the world. I’ve learned to pray Scripture prayers and praise and find this helped me considerably. Praise Him!

Blessings,
Shirley Holden
