Scarf Prayers

I love scarves. 
Like big puffy heart LOVE. 
And I have a few.
{Okay more than a few. A bunch more than a few. More than 50 but less than 100.}

My favorite season is winter when I get to wear my super cute scarves. 
As I was organizing them the other day I had a crazy idea. 
Since I wear one almost every day in the winter
I decided that each day I wore one, whoever God brought to mind
as I got dressed, is who I'd pray for all day long.
Every time I noticed or adjusted my scarf, 
{which is often}
I would pray specifically for them.

So I've been doing it the past two weeks
since it finally is cool/cold here in Texas
and I absolutely love it!

It is amazing how often I look down at my scarf or adjust it 
and each time I pray for that person. 
When I look at these pics I immediately think of the person
I prayed for while wearing that scarf.
I see...
a sweet friend who is battling aggressive, terminal cancer,
a sweet friend who is dealing with some yucky, scary work issues,
a sweet friend who is fighting for her marriage,
and a sweet friend who is having some serious family relationship troubles.

I believe strongly in the power of prayer and 
truly consider it an honor to pray for my family and friends. 

One of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:6-7 which says...

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, 
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Maybe you aren't a scarf freak like me but maybe you love
bracelets or hats or big chunk necklaces. 
You could easily do the same thing with whatever you wear daily.
Anything that gets us praying more often for those around us?
Is awesome indeed!
