Prayer notebook for my covering sisters

Hello, my dear covering sisters. We might live far from each other geographically but actually we are so near. We are united under the same convictions and biblical beliefs, and thus our friendship is strong and high above the mountains, forests and oceans.

Today as I was thinking of my new covering friends, an idea came into my mind; Why not make a special prayer-notebook and write down the names of my new friends? So I made one as you see below.



And I decided to set aside every Monday as a special prayer day for my new dear friends. And I wrote down the name Irina and Jessica on the first page. Well, if He brings me more friends in the future, then of course, I am going to add names on it.


I pray that our Father gives them abundant joy and blessings this new year. I also pray He will give us inner strength to stay firm in our convictions and be faithful to Him. 

Father, please be with them when they feel lonely and sad. Please defend them when they are wrongly judged by others and open the spiritual eyes of the people around them so that they can see the truth about head covering command in the Bible. Father, unite us with Thy love and use our whole lives for your glory. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

  1. Dear Kinuko,
    (I sent a comment a few hours ago, but I don't know if it went through.)
    Thank you for this beautiful gesture! Tears came to my eyes as I read this. What you have done is so sweet and caring! I also, am going to pray for you and all headcovering sisters in general every Monday. I have it marked on my calendar.
    In Christ,
    Jessica

    1. Dear sweet Irina, thank you for visiting and also putting my name on your prayer list. As you read my recent post "I've found an Asian headcovering sister", your testimony which was translated into Japanese, has inspired this sister's heart and now she is also practicing headcovering! Thank you again for sharing your testimony with us. I love you in Jesus Christ, my sister. Kinuko

  4. Hi! I came to your blog through the Head Covering Movement e-mail. I started covering about 3 years ago. My journey has been similar to yours and it has been such a blessing to read. I, too, was drawn to cover full-time and am alone in the conviction. I live in the USA, in California, and the culture is tricky to navigate. Your post on antinomianism rings very true for me here. Dealing with the flesh is hard enough on its own :). Yet, God is showing me more and more what He has called women to. The loneliness can bring doubt but there's this broader sense of connection to the body of Christ and women I have never met and many who have gone before me. Your posts have encouraged me. Thank you! Thank you!

  5. Dear Ginsuzake (can I call you like this?). Hello, nice to meet you and thank you so much for writing to me. I could sense your deep spirituality as well as great intelligence in your writings. I want to learn from you more. I want to hear the things which you have learned from the Lord in your journey. This morning, I wrote down your name in my prayer notebook and I am going to pray for you every Monday from now on. Some sisters (such as Jessica/USA, Sanae/Japan, Irina/Canada, Caroline/France) are already in one body with one heart for prayer and you are so very welcome to be with us. Please do so! Please be my friend and our friend:) ,with love and Christian greetings, Kinuko
