Prayer List

I am making this Camino a prayer.  As such I need your prayer intentions to fill my hiking time with reflection and meditation.  Pray for me and I will pray for you and those intentions you share with me.  The power of prayer will join us together.  Leave your prayer requests in the comments.

  1. I often define a pilgrim as one who embarks on an intentional journey to court holy disruption. Disruption is a welcoming in of being uncomfortable, of being called to our own edges. The root of the word pilgrim is peregrini, which means “stranger.” To become a pilgrim means to embrace our own strangeness, the strangeness of the journey we are on, as a way of breaking open all of our assumptions and expectations about how the world should work.”

  2. My dear oldest brother, a pilgrim of the Camino de Santiago, I pray for your strength, endurance and good health to make your journey. May God watch over you and keep you safe. When your pack gets heavy, may you feel God’s hands lifting you back up on your way. When you finish, may you celebrate the journey you made and find peace to last a lifetime.
    You had asked for prayer requests, please pray for my dear daughters. Pray that they may find happiness and success in their young lives. Pray for their growth spiritually and emotionally. Pray for their futures that they may find inner peace, love and strength to last a lifetime.
    All my love to my brother,
    Love your lil sis,
    Denise

  4. Reflect on this as you enter your first day on the long trail to Santiago, think of your family and know we are thinking of you. From the book of Psalms, Chapter 23: The Lord is my shepherd;
    there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. You set a table before me in front of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the Lord for endless days.

  5. Growing up my Grandma would always sing and hummm to us. Gently rock us in rocking chairs on the vine covered front porch. I learned very quickly that my love of song was also my rock for survival. My favorite hymn is The Old Rugged Cross. As you climb, walk, ramble, eat, drink and pray please hear my hymn in your head and know that I am making this walk with you. I am mesmerized by your words of description on your journey.
    Take care care my friend on your journey, I’ll be singing for you.

  6. I have lost track of time once again. Momma Shain sent me an email yesteday with your blog post and my heart jolted. Thank you for the pictures and thoughts you have recorded on this site! I am getting ready to bring a message on vision tonight at VL Hugo. It is incredible how unique God made each of us, His children, and you are experiencing His presence in a whole new way.

    This is one of my favorite prayers for all the saints by the Apostle Paul:
    Ephesians chapter 1:15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,[e] 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom[f] and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.[g]

    19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.

  8. The journey you travel is not just a physical one but also a spiritual and mental one. Feel free to get lost in all three and discover what lies just beyond the trail.
