After the news this past week, I thought revisiting a few of the cities we’ve prayed for would be a good idea. We’re going to start with Lipscomb. The original post is so appropriate, that I thought I would just post/pray it again. Praying – again – for Lipscomb, Alabama.
I originally posted this on Oct. 29, 2013. At the time, I didn’t know much of anything about the city of Lipscomb. Recently, it’s made the news a couple of times, including this past week. Whenever I see a city we’ve prayed for on the blog pop up, it makes me go back and read how we prayed. I was amazed at how the Lord guided my prayers for Lipscomb nearly two years ago, and how relevant that prayer is for the city today. Let’s take a few minutes to pray for Lipscomb and its leadership.
