I can’t go into specifics of any kind right now, but I am requesting prayer from you my friends… this is the first time I’ve done this and I am feeling very vulnerable. There is a situation brewing with my business right now and the partnership that manages it, and I would ask each of you to pray for me. Right now I’m in a break from a meeting which could go on until all-hours, but a resolution deadline was set for midnight Central time. I’m feeling personally attacked, with a single ally in the room whom I trust implicitly. I ask for your prayers tonight.

In Past Years...
Took a few minutes and prayed for you when I read this.
Praying even now. How awesome to know that God knows all the details, and I don’t have to know them to intercede for you.
Praying that you will stay strong and be protected and that God will be glorified whatever the outcome.
I’m praying for you, brother.
Father God, those who gather right now in person and those gather far and wide lift our brother up to you. We also lift his business and partnership up. We ask that your spirit of peace cover the room. That a spirit of unity of purpose and grace would abide within all who work together there. We ask that those who meet tonight would remember each other as friends. That any spirit of enmity or hard-heartedness would be banished from the room. That hearts will be softened towards each other. Father we ask that crooked paths will be made straight. We ask that your ways would be made clear, that obstacles would be overcome without fear. Father we ask that all manner of fear and darkness would be cleared from the room this evening. We circle the room with your Love and peace and blessing tonight that no darkness may be upon it. In Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you so much each of you who prayed and who commented. My wife also phoned a few friends. I have some bruises as I stood up and took the brunt of many criticisms, including a lot of unwarranted things I simply chose not to defend… for the good of the company. As a result, a document was signed and the crisis appears to be averted, though things will be tender for a while.
Thanks again… I love the power of the ‘net to connect the people and power of God like this. I really did feel the effect of prayer over the past few hours; I am humbled.
Ay caramba! I just dropped by and read this. Send me an email, dude! Inquiring minds and all that.
Father, bring peace and rest to Brother Maynard and the ever-lovely Mrs. Maynard. Shield them, comfort them, and fill them with the sweet assurance of Your presence.
You betcha! We will continue to pray for healing, comfort, peace. That rumours would not abound at your workplace. That your co-workers would remember you for who you are and hear your words with grace and peace. We love the Lord for He hears our cries, even from the pits of despair and doesn’t suffer us to live there long. (Psalm 116 … sorta). May you have rest now and time to heal.
Just saw this… kinda late i know but i prayed anyway… :) I know the feeling of the meetings like you describe… that’s why my blog’s been quiet recently…
grace and peace…
I’m praying for you too.
Hey Brother, we’re praying for you as well. Is there anything we can do to help in addition to praying? Perhaps a Guiness would take the edge off ;). Let us know if we can fill that order.
