Dot's Prayer Chain... Let's Get it Going

Hello friends and fellow bloggers. I am writing this post to ask for your help in establishing a prayer chain.  

One of my favorite farmgirl bloggers- Dolly of the Hibiscus House blogs posted about her dear Mother Dot's ongoing illness yesterday as follows:

"Some of you know that our family has been dealing with a very bad situation. My mama has been very sick for the past three months. She is such a strong person with such determination. I don't think that I personally could have handled what she has had to and continues to go through in fighting this illness. I am so proud of her and thank God everyday for her. I know it is in his hands and that faith is what gets the family through this. I love her so much! She has taken care of everybody in our neighborhood our entire life, the neighborhood children who are now in their fifties and now their children and grandchildren know and love Ms. Dot. She is one of a kind and that is a good thing. You probably may have seen some of her recipes on the cooking blog. She smiles when I tell her of the compliments she receives from her fact some of mine indeed came from her, my grandmothers and great grandmothers... handed down for generations... That is what it is all about isn't it?

I would love prayer for mama. It would mean so very much."

There is power in prayer. I have felt it before myself.  

Dolly is dear to me and to many of you that enjoy her wonderful trio of blogs, and her Mama "Dot" is the anchor of her entire family.  Please join me in sending prayers to Dot, Dolly, and their entire family

I have a few ideas for how we can send our support via thoughts and prayers to Dot-  

First and foremost, prayers.

Then, to get this prayer chain going I encourage you to cut n' paste this prayer chain post and add it to your blog to share with the rest of the blogmom community.  BlogMoms can move mountains when we work together.

We can also go to Dolly's original blog post HERE and leave comforting thoughts, verses, and prayers there.

And- we can share this prayer chain with our Facebook friends and on any other social media we use.  

If you have any additional ideas for how we can share this prayer chain with others, please share below.  

Join me in prayer for Dot if you are able and thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. 



  1. Dolly, I am praying for your Mama and the rest of your family. God is always in charge and will see you through all. I pray for healing for your Mama and strength and peace from worrying for you children and grandchildren.
