A Prayer For You

Lord, bless my friends and family with Your peace.  Bless them with unspeakable joy and love.  Fill their storehouses to overflowing so that they can be a blessing to others.  Draw them close to You so they can know love without limits or conditions.  Place Your angels about them to protect them and heal their minds, bodies and spirits in the precious name of Your Son, Jesus, amen ^i^

My Lord God

I received this from my husband who got it from a friend and right now this speaks so strongly to me that I wanted to post it and share it.  May it bless you as it continues to bless me. ^i^

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.  I do not see the road ahead of me.  I cannot know for certain where it will end, nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You.  And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.  I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire, and I know that if I do this, You will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore, I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.  I will not fear, for You are ever with me and You will never leave me to face my perils alone. – Thomas Merton (Thoughts in Solitude)

Urgent Prayer Request Update- Louise and Albert

Hello Prayer warrior and Saints – I humbly beg your forgiveness in being so delayed in posting an update.  There have been a number of things going on that have kept me from posting this update which regrettably I cannot share with you. 

It is with a mixture of deep sadness and great joy that I let you know that Albert has gone home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We miss him and his divine sense of humor and genuine love for Jesus but we know he has gone to a better place and it is only a temporary separation as we will see him again one day.

There was a period where we thought Louise would join Albert in heaven, but our God has a plan and a purpose for her and He is not ready for her yet – to which I humbly say, Praise God and Amen, because I am not ready for her to leave just yet either!  She is doing wonderfully and it is truly a miracle that she is healing so quickly.  She looks and sounds great and hopes to be home by Christmas day.  No one will EVER convince me that prayer is not powerful or worthy of our time and I will NEVER leave it up to fate!

Please continue to lift Louise and her family and friends up in prayer as we stand and wait for the completion of God’s full healing and restoration in her life.  I give thanks to God for His faithfulness and to you all for your commitment and diligence.  May God richly bless you with His peace and riches according to His will and riches in heaven in the precious name of Jesus, amen. ^i^
