Prayer Monday


Right now I have 13 brown papered boxes taking up my dinning table. Brown though they are they are filled with excitement and joy. They are waiting. Not quite yet ready to send. They are missing something.

Tonight, God told me what that was.

Don't stop reading there. If you are here from The Sisterhood, you see, I don't really know what you believe. I might be treading on toes here. I might put some people out.

But you need to understand: This is Gods thing. Not mine, not yours. Late that night in January as I sat on my bed crying, I was talking to God. "Why!? Why is it like this?" and he gave me the idea. He planted that seed. He told me to love other people, the most powerful thing I could ever do with my life.

So I began to love others. Not just emotionally, but physically as well. I learnt to express my love through an action, and somehow other people liked this idea.

This is why you're here. Some how you found out about The Sisterhood and you thought "thats a good idea". Lots of you have emailed me saying how wonderful I am. Every time I hear that I thank God. "Thank you for using me" I say. Because this isn't my thing, its His, and He is using me.

If you don't believe in God or anything like that, you might be sitting there getting angry. "But Sophie, I sent you 10 blocks of chocolate, how dare you thank god for that!?"

I do thank you, I thank you a lot. Thank you for hearing of this idea and responding. Responding takes a whole lot of courage and belief. For that I thank you. Thank you for being so courageous!

As to the success of The Sisterhood, its motivation, its heart, its inspiration, I thank God for that.

(Let me make myself really clear. You don't need to believe in God to be part of The Sisterhood (or to receive anything from us), but you need to know that -I- do. If you're cool with that, keep reading!)

So tonight, as I was in Church, worshipping, which I have not done in so long. Not really. I've been in church a lot. Every weekend. But its very hard to connect when you have a baby at your feet, or when you're looking after 4 babies in a different room. Tonight we had a baby sitter and I was able to go to church alone with hubby. I reached out my hands and released everything.

Amongst it all I heard God tell me "Hold off sending those gifts. You need to pray for my daughters first"


Gurgle gurgle. Okay God. If you say so! (Of course we need to. How could I forget!?)

I am now declaring the day of Monday our LOVEBOMB prayer day. 


If you are of the praying type (or if you'd like to give it a go), please spend time on Monday praying for these amazing, strong, daughters of God: Our Sisters.

Print off this post - stick it on your computer at work, your fridge at home, on the front of your folder. Take it with you, invest, love, speak.


  • Oprah, pray for her little son who has received multiple surgeries and is only a new born. Pray for his care, the health of his parents and the love they have together. Pray for joy.
  • Pray for Madonna and her family, for finances for their little girls surgeries, pray her and hubby could continue to love, and pray that God would give them strength amongst these tiring years.
  • Pray for Gweneth. I hear laughter and love coming from her home. Please pray that God would lift her up, he would carry her amongst her daily life. I feel that Gweneth is a real rock for those around her. Thank God for that.

  • Pray for Suri. Peace, understanding, acceptance, joy, love. Anything and everything. Just pray for Suri and her whole family.
  • Pray for Adele and her husband. Pray for their joy, their love and their hearts. Ask God to protect them and keep them.

  • Pray for Lisa's* health and happiness, pray she would know God and receive healing for her sickness,

  • Pray for Little Sweetie* A life time of love, understanding and acceptance. Comfort for her and her family in these times and safety for her mind. Pray that the right people would be around her family and the right provisions and opportunities would be in place to keep the family together. 
* New additions to our LOVE BOMB

Also, pray that all of these ladies would find a blessing in our LOVE BOMB, pray that it would come at a great time for them, a perfect moment to show Gods love to them. Allow them to believe that someone out there, a 'stranger' could love them. 

Lets do it. Will you join me? Leave a comment to let me know you're in! (It would be lovely to know I'm not alone)

  10. Hey Sophie - I have recently joined the sisterhood, and have some product I want to send you to distribute. I USED to go to church, in fact, my husband was a pastor and through various circumstances we chose to leave, removed our membership, removed ourselves purposefully from that. We have never removed ourselves from God, and to me, what you are doing is the FOUNDATION of why His church was BEGUN in the first place - to care, to look after those in need, to honor Him by looking after His children who were struggling. To be His hands. Prayer? yes, I will pray for those on the sisterhood hit list - to be sure... but I will also pray for you and those who support you. My prayer life has been altered irrevocably indirect response to my life's circumstances, I have only been able to utter 2 sentences to my God for years... and they are "Thank You" and "Your will be done". May God continue to bless you for your commitment to your purpose. And thank you, for allowing others, like myself to be a part of it.
