From Cindy, My daughter and her husband are foster parents and live with us in a
duplex. They are expecting the arrival of new children soon. Please
pray that we are able to love whoever God brings into our homes, that we
might be a blessing to them in difficult circumstances.
From Carolyn, at Catachresis: My mother who is elderly is unwell and would value continued prayers for
her and for myself and my brother as we both have health issues too.
Thanks and God bless.
From Cathy, at Eagles' Wings: My son and his wife separated in October. He has been very sad and very
angry since. He is searching for answers, but is searching in the
secular world and its philosophies. Please pray for his salvation. Along
with the separation, has come the drawing away of our daughter -in-law
and their son from our lives. They live 4 hours away. Please pray that
we might find the grace to forgive, and somehow maintain contact and a
relationship with her and our grandson.
From Linda, at Linda's Lines and Loves: Linda wrote (Oct. 10, 2012) that her mom-in-law passed away on Sept 30. Please pray with Linda that the Lord will provide wisdom to deal with all of the issues that a death in the family can bring. Linda is dealing with so much right now - the anniversary of the death of one of their children, stresses at her teaching job, and now more grief. Stop by her blog and let her know that you are praying for her, a sister in Christ. I know it will encourage her heart.
For Tonya, at Hillbilly Handiworks blog (July 3, 2012): Please pray that Tonya and her hubby will hear good news soon about a possible promotion for him. It will mean some welcome financial progress and a possible move to a new town. UPDATE 10/2012 Please pray for Tonya's hubby as he is struggling with health issues; pray for Tonya's strength as she handles the home and extra duties, and please pray that the doctors will have insight into what the problem is, and how to correct it.
For Lisa, at Shady Grove Journal blog (June 25, 2012): I asked Lisa if we might be able to support her in prayer. Her parents are elderly, and her mom especially is dealing with some health issues, due to Parkinsons. Lisa is trying to arrange for some compassionate care-givers to assist in some of the day-to-day care that her mom needs - this will help her parents, and help Lisa, too. Please pray that she will find just the right person for them -- it's difficult sometimes to find the right personality, and difficult, too, to arrange it in such a way that feelings are not hurt. Please pray, too, for peace for Lisa as she deals with these issues. UPDATE 10/2012 Please pray for Lisa, as her mom has passed away. It may bring her some comfort if you want to encourage her with a comment on her blog, letting her know of your prayers.
For Donna McBroom-Theirot (June 22, 2012): I asked Donna if we might pray for her. She is a recent follower of the Bible study blog, and has been diagnosed with two different blood disorders. In addition to the uncertainty and concerns of treatments and upcoming tests, Donna is also dealing with a great deal of fatigue. You can learn more about her condition at her blog, and I hope that you will join me in praying for her. Please pray for wisdom for her doctors, as well, as they strive to help her.
From Belinda (11-13-11): A very dedicated Christian couple in my church is going through a terrible time right now. Especially the wife. I count her as a friend. Her mother has cancer and is very needy, having only Paige, and an ailing husband to take care of her. Now Paige's husband has been diagnosed with cancer. My heart breaks for them. But, God is good, and she says something very special is happening around them. She's very aware of all the prayers on their behalf and knows God is in control and will work His will. Update 6/27/2012 - Paige's husband is with the Lord, please continue to pray for her as she ministers to her parents.
From Pam: The Walker Family. She just lost a kidney and now has to return to have her foot amputated below the knee. Sunday night her husband was taken to the hospital with chest pain. He had to have a heart cath. on Mon. and had some bleeding. He did get to come home tonight. Her mother is having lots of medical issues. Please pray for her that she will have the strength to travel to the hospital to be with her daughter. Also their daughter works for WalMart and just came back from Maternity leave and they won't let her off.
From Marcia: Marcia's mother has a cancerous brain tumor; there are other family crises situations going on as well. Update: 6/29/2012 - Marcia says that the treatments for the cancer have been successful, and her mom is doing well!
