A Faith Throwdown. Cause we all gotta have faith.

Sounds ominous, doesn't it?

All "iron-chef" in your face, Bobby Flay inspired. But no, this throwdown is of a different sort. And from my momma. Ultimately from Stormi Omartian, but via my mom.

This throwdown challenge is faith based and i don't think i've ever done this before.

You are supposed to log down your prayer requests to God, and then pray on them 30 days, and then report back any progress on the requests. Simple no? Jot down what you've been whining to God about (that's me by the way...lots of whys, why me's and why nots???) and then seriously pray about it for 30 days straight. At the the end of 30 days return to post about what the outcome was.

We all do decor linkups, project linkups, even menu linkups, but i haven't seen this before. I'm sure i'm not the first person to do this, but it's still new to me.

I'm giving up linky space here to link back to any and all posts on this. I hope that you join me, even more i hope that you spread the word. We could all use a little faith. November 16 we post back whatever we are comfortable with sharing.

My prayer request list for the next 30 days:

1) Closure with my ex. Serious conversation closure.

2) Resolution of the school drama and a decent, acceptable outcome from the school regarding what happened to my son last week.

3) Getting this house sold. There are so many reasons why and none of them dire. But i cannot tell you how much it would mean to me have my children in a neighborhood again.

4) Personal request that i want to keep to myself right now.

I seem to remember seeing a post about painting the door to your house and you're not in a neighborhood? A neighborhood with lots that are too big? No sidewalks? Just wondering here....

I'm not opposed to the month of prayer thing, but I have failed on such a thing before. So I must think on it a bit.

Hey there. No, i'm on a dead end dirt road - which used to be the lane for a turkey farm of all things. it has 3 houses on it. :(
So everything that i have done to my house has been purely for my benefit. which i don't mind. i enjoy that stuff. but there are no kids within walking distance for kids to play with.
