Many of you who support this page started so because of the Restory Show. As of June 2018, after its 100th episode and five seasons of terrific content, I'll be discontinuing the show. After seeking advice, praying, and running out of stories I could personally vet, I knew it was time to shift my focus.
In January, during my Mastermind retreat and after the release of my daily devotional, Jesus Every Day, my writing friends suggested I start a daily podcast where I pray every day for people. Thus began a crazy good journey as I launched Pray Every Day on February 1st.
It's been my heart to get this podcast into the earbuds of people all over the world. And so far, this has happened! See below! (P.S. If you know folks in Kazakhstan, feel free to forward the podcast to them!)
We've also uploaded it to Alexa (Amazon Echo). You can listen to it on your device here.
Here's where you come in. As you can imagine, this daily prayer podcast takes a lot of my time and resources to create. I see this as my service to those who need prayer around the world. The format of the podcast is this:
- I read a Scripture. (The first two months, we are going through Philippians, verse by verse. Next will be Psalm 119. After that? I'm praying about it.)
- I pray for you.
- Simple as that. The entire podcasts lasts about five minutes, and it will be produced seven days a week, 365 days a year.
CLARISSE: Thank you so much for your very timely prayer this morning. I have been very low lately and trying to lift my spirits up by reading and meditating on the Word. This morning I prayed for God to lead me as I am very confused about my next steps. You prayed for God to resurrect broken relationships. I believe that is the answer to my prayer as I was asking God whether I should give up and let go or hold on and wait.
JOSEPH in South Sudan: Thank you Mary for praying for me. You pray like you had been seeing all the challenges that l am facing.
MYRNA: Thank you so much for praying for me. I have been struggling with believing and accepting God truly loves me, my brokenness and all. I'm praying this year I grow strong in the Lord and truly become the woman of God I so long to be.
DONALD: I cannot believe you hit it right on! It’s exactly what I been feeling, though I know I have to release all to Him.
DELEE. Thank you so much for your prayer. I struggle a lot with anxiety and depression, and so this message hit home. On the outside I always seem fine, but internally it's a daily battle.
DAVID: Thank you so much for your prayers. it's like you know me, because this is me. I am on the verge of burnout!
I'm seeking your patronage to help engineer and promote the daily podcast. Paying for engineering and marketing frees up valuable time for me to record the daily podcast and write the books I need to be writing. Thank you in advance for partnering with me!
If you support at the $5 or up, you'll receive an exclusive art piece each month. Here is an example. I now sell these images in my Etsy shop, but you'll receive high quality
downloads for free and EARLY.
For those of you who support the podcast at the $10 level, you'll become like one of those folks who get their names on bricks when they sponsor the Library or a building at a college! Hooray! Your name will be featured on EVERY SINGLE BLOG POST all year long. The brick wall looks like this:
If you support the production of Pray Every Day at the $20 level or more, you will receive an exclusive podcast just for you EVERY MONTH. This can include secret Restory interviews (yep, even though that feed is being discontinued), an encouraging word from me, or a never-before released audio of one of my talks about being set free from the past. I am really excited about creating and providing this special perk every month.
Also: we've added a new feature called World Wednesday:
Every Wednesday, after my prayer, you'll hear a prayer prayed in a language other than English based on the day's scripture. Here's an example from Anna Smit who prays in Dutch.
Your support, no matter what level, will empower Pray Every Day to make its way around the globe, expanding the kingdom of God, and giving people hope and instruction about something very dear to my heart: prayer.
Even if you can't financially support the podcast, would you take a moment right now to pray for its continued reach? I would really appreciate it.
It seems fitting that I would end this plea with prayer:
Jesus, I pray for the person reading this Patreon page today that You would inaugurate joy in difficult circumstances, no matter how dark or how deep they seem. You are the God of hope, and I pray for hope and wellness and peace in my friend's life now. Would You lift our heads when we struggle? Would you strengthen us when we're weakened? Would You, once again, show us that You love us in powerful ways? But even more than that, would You show up in the margins of our lives, in the broken places no one knows about? Oh how we need Your presence, dear Jesus. Renew us now, Amen.
Thank you for your consideration!
