Pray Out Loud

how to pray out loud

I’ve never been one to pray out loud very much. To be completely honest, I’ve never even considered prayer much of a spiritual gift.

When news came of the Boston Marathon bomber suspect finally being apprehended last night, there was a thrill that came over the nation. I can only imagine that Bostonians in particular experienced a sense of relief that this terrorist had been caught and a sense of peace in knowing the lockdown has finally ended. But for one mother, her terror …

The Long Road Home

We’ve started the long road home to Nashville… It’s hard to believe that just a week ago I received the call from my husband that his dad had passed away and hours later I piled our two kids into the mini van to make the 13 hour trek down to South Florida amidst squalls from Hurricane Isaac. It’s a blur. …

Even though the kids and I just arrived in Florida (and we’re still so grateful for all your prayers yesterday!), everyone’s been asking for details on the visitation and funeral service for Ricky’s dad, Rick Cone Sr. that will be taking place this week. I want to be as clear and factual as possible for those of you purely seeking …

Felt Prayers

Have you ever been able to feel when someone is praying for you? You ever wished you could sense some prayers more than you do? Or perhaps the better question is, do you feel like your prayers make an actual difference in the life of the person you’re praying for? All these questions went through my mind just a couple …

Dad Cone Update: August 26, 2012

dad-cone-family

It’s been a month and a half since I’ve updated you on Ricky’s dad. Most of you know I stopped sharing regularly on here because I came under some scrutiny for sharing a story that’s not my own. But when it comes to something that affects our family in such a way as it has this summer, I believe this …

Dad Cone Update: July 8, 2012

dad-cone-family

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Dad Cone update, but honestly, since we haven’t been in Florida with him, it’s been hard to share second-hand information. But Ricky just flew back down to Florida on Friday night, so he’s gotten to see dad in person for the first time since mid-June. When I spoke to dad a …

Pour Out Your Problems

In times of trouble, it’s natural to pray…but do you pour out your problemsĀ to the Lord? We have certainly been doing our fair share of praying over the past week since my father in law has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Yet in my effort to feel like I’m the one who has to keep things together for our …
