BQ® Note Card: Lifting You Up in Prayer
In this season of spring emerging and hope bursting forth through new seedlings and sweet flower blossoms, I have a tendency to look up to see the trees budding and to lift up my eyes to find the birds chirping cheerily overhead.
I've always appreciated the majestic floating of hot air balloons as, seeming effortless as they glide across the sky. This imagery seemed to click with the frequently used phrase, "lifting you up in prayer" when we offer to pray for someone. To me it feels like we're trying to lighten their burdens, to support them in a time of need by adding our prayers of petition to theirs.
"To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul." Psalm 25:1 (NKJV)
"...give you His peace, the Lord lift up his countenance upon you...the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace..." Numbers 6:26
"I lift up my eyes to you...to you who sit enthroned in heaven. I lift my eyes..." Psalm 123:1
