PRAYER REQUEST SUNDAY
MAY 6 th, 2012
For in the day of trouble
He will keep me safe in His
He will hide me in the shelter of His
and set me high upon a rock.
PSALM 27: 5
Powerful yet tender, protective yet liberating is how I read these words written so long ago by David, a man after God's own heart. A man who in his imperfectness gives us all A HOPE for unconditional love, forgiveness, and a second chance.
MY God is the God of second chances. It is my prayer for you today, that if you are in need of a second chance whether it be with God, in a relationship, in your finances, your job, or simply in need to know God's Plan B, C, D, or even E for your life, that you will "lift up your eyes unto the hills for whence cometh my help".
God Loves You
Her mother was doing well for awhile but is now showing signs that her time is short upon this earth. Her will to live is at odds with her deep desire to "go home". May 14th is her 58th wedding anniversary and Jannette believes her mother is holding on so she can celebrate that important date. Isn't that a great love story? Jannette I will pray for your dear sweet mother to make that date and Pray that you will have the courage to release your mother to go home if that is her sincere desire. I had to come to a point in time where I had to verbally tell my mother it was Ok to go...that I would be Ok. It gave us both peace and allowed Mama to go to heaven with a smile on her face!
Sharon of Dancing Thru Threads
Friends, this dear quilting/blogging cohort needs our prayers and encouragement ! She has gone through some rough chemo and is facing more treatments plus radiation. The cancer is not giving in quietly. Her strength is weak and she was able to do some hand stitching this last week or so. Go to her blog and give Sharon words of encouragement and let her know our group is praying for her!
Cathy's daughter's Grandmother-in-law, ROSE, whom we began to pray for last week, has begun to feel some better after falling and breaking her wrist. The doctors think she may have also had a virus! This 80 yr. old lady runs a Food Pantry plus serves her church, community and most of all her Lord! What a precious woman of God, Rose must be. I would love to know her and have her share wisdom that can only come from a life fully lived for God.
Traveling and following the 4th Mission journey of Paul. An incredible opportunity yet traveling in that part of the world can be dangerous. Come home safely my friend. You can find Marlene here.
Pray for my daughter Mary Ellen's asthma and other health issues. She has so much on her plate what with caring for James' w/ Cerebral Palsy, that her own health issues take a back burner. James is growing and getting heavier. Although he is walking with his walker in public, the fact remains at home much of his care still involves lifting and carrying him in and out of his chair, the tub, his bed, etc... The physical wear and tear on my daughter is tremendous. She needs a special touch for her back, for increased stamina, and wisdom in making decisions concerning discipline, school placement, and providing appropriate social situations for James.
Let me leave you with James' (4yr.) blessing before supper the other night.
How was your day?
Thanks for the Food
I feel certain that honest little prayer went all the way to the Throne of God!
