There’s a weekly bible study held in our firm every Tuesday morning at 7a.m. It’s usually attended by several of the secretaries and paralegals here. Sometimes, our Senior Tax partner and I also attend (when we can). But because it’s too early, one of my fellow associates and I just hold our own BS and fellowship once a week after lunch. (But past few weeks, though, we’ve been soooooo busy – that’s an understatement actually)
Today, the secretary who often gives announcements re: the study group sent me a message to remind me about tomorrow’s session.
Me: thanks ms thess! sorry, i have a meeting with SEC tomorrow morning. 😦 but could i share a prayer request (or two)?
Secretary: sure ma’am! 🙂
Me: Sige, share ko. ito yung first. kasi, head ako ng isang ministry sa church namin. yung women’s guild. nag-call kami for nominations recently. unti lang ng nominees which may be indicative na kelangan ng bagong direction for the ministry. traditional role of the organization is mag-serve ng food pag may events / outreach / missions in church. but this year, we felt the need and tried to come up with other programs (e.g. family retreat, film showing for the family). pinag-p-pray namin kung will ba ni Lord na i-change from women’s guild into a family ministry. kasi wala pa ring couples group in our church.
second, my husband and i are amortizing our own place. so lahat ng finances namin, kahit tinutulungan na kami ng mom nya, napupunta dun. we’ve been praying and preparing for a baby next year. pero syempre, kelangan din for that, provisions. kaya hayun, ang prayer namin, for provisions, if it’s God’s will na talaga for us to have a baby next year. (sorry, ms thess, ang haba)
Sec: ok ma’am, will include your prayer requests not only tom. but also in our everyday prayer time to GOD… God bless you ma’am! 🙂
Me: thank you, thank you so much, ms thess. i really appreciate you guys. 🙂
Sec: u’r welcome ma’am! THANKS BE TO GOD in ADVANCE! 🙂
Me: yes indeed! thanks to God! He’s at work even as we pray. 🙂
Sec: AMEN! 🙂
