Group active since Mon, Dec 20, 2010
After reading some of the comments on other discussion groups I thought it would be a great idea to have a group dedicated to a prayer chain. This group would be an outlet for those in need of support, love and prayers during difficult times in their lives. This way they can come to one place, and other members will have their names and be able to add them to their prayer list. In these troubling and difficult times that we are all facing I think it is needed.

Still others have given up altogether and are merely waiting for death. They don't see that life, love, and joy are only a choice away and that God wants them to Live Now.
There is a wonderful quote that says, "How do you know if your mission on Earth is finished? If you are still alive then it isn't."
Are you going to stop living before God wants you to? Are you just going to sit around waiting to die or are you going to live now? What are you waiting for? Start living now.
If you haven't taken a day off to enjoy yourself in forever then do it now. If you haven't played with your children in a long time then do it now. If you haven't smelled a flower or hugged a tree lately then do it now. If you haven't told those you hold dear that you love them in a while then do it now.
If you haven't hugged your children, grandchildren, friends, loved ones, pets, or even yourself in days then do it now. If you haven't loved, laughed, sang, danced, cared, helped, smiled, or enjoyed yourself today then for crying out loud do it now. Life is too short to waste doing nothing. God wants us to Love Now and God wants us to Live Now.

Prayer is simply an honest conversation with God.

To avoid drifting away from God, stay anchored to the rock.

In my natural state, love flows readily to and from me. However, when I hold resentment, bitterness, or hatred toward anyone, including myself, I create an emotional block around my own heart. Each time I repeat a shaming or blaming story, I add yet another brick to that wall. Over time, I can come to feel disempowered and imprisoned within a fortress of my own negativity.
In forgiveness, I find the key to returning to my natural state of expansiveness and freedom. When I forgive, I feel an indescribable grace. The wall around my heart disappears and the Christ Light that I truly am radiates throughout my being. Through forgiveness, I fully claim my natural states of love, gratitude, peace, and joy.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.—Ephesians 4:32
