No condemnation in Christ…

So I was going to write something today on no condemnation in Christ as this has been echoing in my thoughts for days now, but I think this verse and this song says it all (lyrics are below).

God bless you

~Briggie ^i^

Romans 8:1-4 NLT “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit…”

There is no Condemnation
For those in Christ Jesus
By His blood
I have been made free
There is no Condemnation,
For those in Christ Jesus
By His blood
I have been redeemed

Because of His forgiveness I donʼt have live with
Shame anymore because of His Redemption
No more condemnation
Thereʼs no more

Christ who died raised to life
Made a way for me, thereʼs no depth
Thereʼs no height
That can separate me from his love

There is no Condemnation
For those in Christ Jesus
By His blood
I have been made free
There is no Condemnation,
For those in Christ Jesus
By His blood

I am grateful for…

I was recently challenged by a friend to write out and share 3 things I am grateful for everyday for 7 days, and at the end of each day, nominate 2 other people to do the same.

Day 1 was a breeze.  Day 2 wasn’t too difficult either.  Day 3, took a little thinking.  By Day 4 I spent quite a bit of time in front of my computer screen.  It’s not that I don’t have a lot to be grateful for, it was trying to put it into words and not sound like I was saying the same things over and over and over.

I hate to say this, but when Day 7 arrived, I actually breathed a sigh of relief. It’s not that I didn’t feel I had anything left to write about that I was grateful for, it’s that I was afraid of leaving someone out, or not being spiritual enough, or sounding, forgive my wording here, but like an airhead.

it wasn’t until the challenge was over and the next day arrived when I felt like I was letting myself off the hook for not having to write about what I was grateful for anymore.  So, as part of my routine (and I am trying to make it daily, but I’m not beating myself up about it if I miss a day or two) I pause for a few minutes to reflect on all that I have that God has blessed me with, the good, the not so good and the “oh Lord help me through this!”

While I reflect on those things, I imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t have these blessings – and I include the good, not so good… I don’t consider myself to be materialistic or superficial, but I know that there are so many things I take for granted each day.

So, with this in mind, I challenge you to write out and share 3 things you are grateful for each day for 7 days and nominate 2 others to do the same.

Happy writing and God bless you!


Words, Do Yours Bless or Hurt?

God’s Word says that “…the tongue has the power of life and death…”Proverbs 18:21.  We can brighten someone’s day with a kindly spoken word, or cast a dark cloud with a bitter and harsh word.  Sometimes we mean harm with our words, sometimes we don’t even realize we are doing it.  Words cut like sharpened steel, or strengthen us like rock.

I always thought that my children knew that I was their biggest supporter and that I always felt that honesty is the best policy, no matter the situation.  Then, one day, my son approached me and said, “Mom, I don’t think you realize the impact of what you say.”  This wasn’t meant as a compliment, it was meant as a criticism.  I had relayed my feelings about a situation which were up front and honest and were not said in anger or with a bitter tone, however the effect of my words had a cutting impact on my son, which was not my intention.

This evening, I was the one who was being spoken to, and while what was said was not in itself meant to be hurtful, the way it was said was.  I took what was said as a way of being put in my place, and to stop talking.  It cut me to the core and had me paralyzed.  After some time had passed, I felt myself just sitting and staring and wondering what I did to deserve such words and treatment.  It took me about an hour to realize, as a society, we have become so desensitized to what other people may think or feel, that we do not think before we speak.  We have this need to have the last word, to set ourselves above and feel superior.

jesus NEVER did this.  He put others before Himself.  He prayed long and hard before He spoke.  He carefully thought out what He said, how He said, to whom He said it to, and what the outcome of His words would be.

Lord, I pray that I can be more like Jesus when I speak.  Let my words by a sweet sweet sound in Your ears.  Let my words be full of blessings, not cursings, bring healing, not pain, be uplifting, not discouraging, and be full of praise and not complaints.

I am inserting one of Joel Osteen’s messages: Both Death and Life are in the Power of the Tongue,

God bless you,


Do You Know?

Do you know just how precious you are to God?  Do you know His love?  Do you know that His mercies are there for you everyday?  Do you know that He knows you by name and that He sent His only Son to the cross for you?  Do you know that there is no amount of money or good deeds that are needed to please Him as He simply wants you to know Him, accept His Son as your Savior, and have a personal relationship with Him?

As I awoke this morning, the song, “Mary did you know?” was running through my head.  There are many versions out there, but my personal favorite is sung by Donny Osmond.  The song got me to thinking that there are so many people out there who just do not know God, and this includes those of us who have accepted Jesus into our hearts – including me.

We think of God with our earthly minds, and try to figure Him out,  There is no need to figure Him out.  All we really need to do is talk to Him, make Him part of everything we do.  Tell Him our plans, our hopes, our dreams and ask Him what His plans, hopes and dreams for us are (even though He already knows the plans that He has for us).  When we sin, or do something that we know is wrong, we try to figure out how we can make up for it, or get back in His good graces.  We have to stop thinking this way.  There is no way our earthly thoughts can ever come up with the right words or actions to take our sins away.  We have to get out of our own way and let God guide us, direct us and lead us.  At least that is what I believe.

I pray that today, and everyday, that you know that you know that you know Him.


God bless,


Prayer brings miracles

As I was lying in bed this morning, trying to find the strength to get up and start my day, I was going through the inbox of my email and came across an email from my dear brother in Yeshua, Daniel.  I almost didn’t read it because I have so much going on in my life right now that all I wanted to do was clean out my inbox, then start working on chores that I have put aside.  I didn’t feel I had the time to read it.  Something kept tugging at me to open the email and I am so very glad and blessed that I did.  I truly believe it was the Holy Spirit leading me to it.  As soon as I finished reading it, I felt a heavy weight lifted from me and felt a strong need to share it.  May this bless you as it has me.  I know I will be reading this prayer many more times.  Take care, God bless you and may He give you His peace, strength and joy. ~Briggie

Dear Almighty Lord God Jesus Christ, I thank you for this day, for this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I thank you for my being able to see, and to hear, and to speak, and to feel, and to taste of Your good creation this day and every day.  I’m blessed because you are such a loving and such a forgiving God, and such an understanding and caring God.  You have done so much for me and yet you keep on blessing me.

Forgive me this day for everything I have ever done, or ever said or every thought that was not pleasing to you. I say I am so sorry.  I now repent and ask for your forgiveness.  Please keep me safe O God From all danger, hurt, and harm.  Help me to start this day and every day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.  Let me make the best of each and every day, to clear my mind so that I can hear from you. Please broaden my mind so that I can accept all things according to God’s Will.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over, for all things are working together for my good and God’s Glory.  And when I’m pushed beyond my limits, give me the best response, a response which says Alleluia, and Praise the Lord, and Thanks be unto the Most High God Almighty, I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to the prayer of my heart.
Continue to use me to do your will.  Continue to bless me so that I may be a blessing to others.  Keep me strong so that I may help the weak.  Keep me uplifted so that I may have Words of encouragement for the discouraged.

I pray for those that are lost and can’t find their way. That they come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, even through this Prayer I am now praying.  I pray for those that are misjudged, misguided, misused, and misunderstood.  I pray for those who don’t know you intimately.  I pray for those who will delete this prayer without sharing the Love of God with others.  I pray for those that don’t believe.  But I thank You that I do believe that God changes people and God changes things.  I pray for all my sisters and brothers, for each and every one of the family members in their households. I pray for peace, love, and joy in their homes; I pray that they are out of debt and that all their financial needs are met and they have more than enough to be a blessing to others.  I pray for every eye that reads and says this Prayer that they come to know that there is no problem, no circumstance, no situation that is greater than God, for God is greater than all, God is greater in all, God is greater through all, and God is greater upon all.  For God, the Most High God Almighty of all the Universes is truly the Greatest of All.

I pray for all my enemies, and those who have used me and abused me, and have lifted up their hands and their tongue against me. I now forgive them for all they have done. In Jesus Name, all my enemies are now forgiven, and I pray God forgiveness upon all my enemies, for they do know what they are doing, for I am a Child of God.  So every battle that I have ever encountered in my life is now in God’s Loving hands, for You, O God, fight all my battles for me.  I pray that these words will be believed, received and accepted into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every tongue that confesses them in name of Jesus Christ.  I pray believing, receiving and accepting God’s miracles in my life this day and every day, for God’s Divine favor is now my heritage, in Jesus name.  Amen and Amen! It is done! O’ Praise The Lord! Alleluia! God Bless You!

Just repeat the phrase below and see how God moves!
God I so love you and I need you. I confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, my Lord, my Savior, and my King, and I confess this day and every day that I am highly FAVORED by God and man.  Please come into my life, Lord Jesus Christ and change my heart now! Let’s take this Prayer around the World.

“To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.  When God takes something from your grasp, he’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.  The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you. Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting for to hear.

Please repeat these 30 Words, ” Almighty Jesus Christ, my Everlasting Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses, and please watch over and heal my family in Jesus name, Amen”.

His prayer is so powerful. Pass this to other people. Let’s take this Prayer around the world…..And watch what God does for you.

Prayer Request – Michael

Dear prayer warriors, please pray for Michael. He is 21, and is trying to overcome an addiction to heroin.  His mother is overcome with grief and fears she will lose her son to this terrible drug.  She is asking for pray for strength, peace, healing, and courage to stand up against the enemy and be there for her son.

Pray that God gives her peace and strength.  Pray that God places His saints around Michael so that he will know where true healing and peace strength comes from.  May God bless this family and restore them.  May God be glorified and may Michael be a living testimony to the grace and fullness of God, in Jesus’ mighty name!

Prayer Requests

Dear Prayer Partners and Warriors,

I come before you today to ask you to lift up some friends that are dealing with attacks from the enemy.  They know the Lord, they believe in Jesus and the power of prayer and they are dear friends of mine that need our help.  I am not going to list all they are going through, suffice to say that they are becoming weary and need our prayers to strengthen them, help bring them peace and victory.

Please pray for Gloria, Cindy and Suzanne.  I pray that God takes them into His arms and gives them His peace.  May He place His angels around them and their homes and shield them from attacks of the enemy.  May the Holy Spirit fall upon them reviving them and giving their prayer renewed power against the enemy.   Lord, as Matthew 18:20 tells us, “…For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Bless these women, Your children, with strength to overcome, financial blessings to conquer their debt and be able to bless others, peace that surpasses all understanding so they can take their focus off the enemy and place it on You, healing in their body, mind and spirit to continue their journey.  Let Your name, and Your word be ever present on their lips and thoughts.

Remind them to pray, “…Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me…” ~ Psalm 23:4.   Lord, they may be in that valley now, but You are with them, and there is light at the end of that valley and it is for but a season.  It is the season to burn away the chaff so that we can be ready to bring in a new harvest.

Lord, I know that there are times when we face trials that it is the enemy trying to mess with us because You want to bless us.  I also know that sometimes we face trials because You are trying teach us something.  Whatever the reason for their trials, I know You are with them!  When we come out of our trials, we rejoice over our suffering, we grow closer to You, and come closer to our goal of becoming more like Your Son.  Our trials become victory and testimony which we share with others who may be going through what we went through.

Father, Lord God, Master and Creator of the Universe, of all that is seen and unseen, bless us Your children.  Draw us closer to You.  We give You the Glory, the Praise and the Honor and ask these things in the name of Your One and Only Son, Jesus, who died for us so that we may live, paid for and took on our sin so that we could come before You.  Amen, and amen!

Why did Jesus fold the napkin?

My dear brother in Yeshua sent this to me in an email and I was so touched and blessed by it, I had to share it.  Thank you Daniel!

Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?
This is one I can honestly say I have never seen circulating in the emails so;
if it touches you, you may want to forward it.

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?
I never noticed this….
The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over
the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes.

The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly
folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes.
Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the
tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.
She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus
loved. She said, ‘They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb,
and I don’t know where they have put him!’
Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see.. The other disciple
outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the
linen cloth lying there, but he didn’t go in.
Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside.. He also noticed the linen
wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was
folded up and lying to the side.
Was that important? Absolutely!
Is it really significant? Yes!
In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand
a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.
When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it
was exactly the way the master wanted it..
The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out
of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not
dare touch that table, until the master was finished.
Now if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his
fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and
toss it onto the table.  The servant would then know to clear the table.
For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, ‘I’m done’.
But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it
beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table,
The folded napkin meant, ‘I’m coming back!’
He is Coming Back!

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee

When things in your lives seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full.  They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things–your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions–and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else–the small stuff. “If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your  spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first–the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”

Urgent Prayer Request – Victoria Tucker – Update

Update – Dear prayer warriors, I have just learned that Victoria has gone to be with our Lord as of Friday.  Please continue to pray for her family and friends as they mourn the loss of their loved one.  Thank you all for your prayers, may God bless each of you, and may His Peace be upon the friends and family of Victoria.


I just received the request posted below from Ms. Fuller – Please lift Victoria up in prayer.  May God place His hands upon her and her family, and may His Perfect Will be done in the name of Jesus, amen.



Urgent Prayer Request – Marv

Dear prayer warriors, I have been asked to place Marv on our prayer request list.  He has just been diagnosed with a tumor on his spine and will be going into the hospital this week to have it removed.  Please pray that God, in His mercy, wisdom and love places His hands upon Marv, and guides the doctors and nurses that will be caring for him.  Pray that His peace be upon Marv, his family and friends.  We give God the glory and thank Him for His grace and mercy.

Prayer Update – Neil Picillo

Dear friends and prayer warriors, it is with both sadness and joy that I write to say the Neil has gone to be with His Lord and Savior.  He left this earth in peace, no pain, knew his loved ones who were with him, and was ready to leave his earthly body.

I thank each and everyone of you that prayed for him and his family and for the loving and kind prayers left on my blog.  His family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and prayer for him.  May God richly bless each of you for your faithfulness.  

A spiritual desert

I cannot say how long I have been in the desert (spiritually speaking) but it’s been a very long time – of that I am quite sure. There are those who are in a valley (as referred to in Psalm 23) but I wandered past the valley, past the shadow of death and somehow ended up in a barren dry land.

I believe in God. His Son. The Comfortor. I have faith the He is in control. I believe He speaks and works through others when we don’t hear or won’t hear Him speaking to us. But something has just dried up inside of me. I didn’t fully realize this, or allow myself to admit to it until tonight.

My husband has been in ICU since Thursday. He was sick for a week before that. I have been running on auto pilot and while I remember to pray for others, take care of the house, the family, the job, I forgot to pray for my husband. Can you believe that? The one thing that should be a knee jerk response – to go to the Lord in prayer and ask for healing for my husband – to post a prayer request for him – to call on friends and ask for prayer – the thought NEVER entered my mind.

It was not until I was driving to the hospital tonight and speaking to a friend (on my bluetooth) did I ask for prayer for my husband. I humbled myself before God and asked for forgiveness for only coming to Him asking for His favor and healing and forsaking Him in all other areas of my life.

I know the power of prayer – I know the healing power of prayer, so why did I wait so long? I will never know the answer to that question while still on this earth, but I do know that God works all things for good and His timing is perfect. He turns things meant for evil and wrong to things for good when you let Him. I know this because He has always been there.

While at the hospital this evening I noticed that he developed a bad sore and was so upset that I gave the nurse an earful along with her supervisor and they called the ICU doctor on staff. I had to wait for a few hours for the doctor to come in as she was busy with several very ill patients in the ER, and I like to believe that God had a hand in the delay because it allowed time for emotions to be under control.

Would it surprise you to find out that the doctor is a Christian? Would it surprise you to find out that she believes in spiritual healing, leadings of the Spirit, loves praise and worship music, prayer, believes in annointing with oil and laying on of hands and is not afraid to share her faith? Well don’t be surprised – it’s all true. She even gave us the name of a church to visit and after looking it up, it sounds like just what we’ve been looking for. So God used this doctor to help lift my husband up spiritually. She even told me about an awesome app for my IPhone – K Love. If you don’t have it – get it! It’s free and it’s awesome. Praise and worship music 24/7.

I know it’s late and need to be sleeping, but I had to post this. I haven’t wanted to post anything for a long time, aside from prayer requests, and something inside me would not let me just hop into bed without posting this.

Are you in a dry place? Do you feel like you can’t pray? Have you lost the desire to speak with Him? Ask someone to pray for you. Put on praise and worship music. Talk to the Lord and tell Him how you are feeling, what you are going through, and ask Him for help. He will hear you. He will answer you. He is your answer.

And if you don’t think the enemy is real and behind our wanderings in and out of the desert, know this – I tried posting this 5 times with no success but was determined not to rest until it posted.  Something told me to highlight and copy my post before I clicked “post”.  When I clicked “post” it just kept spinning like it was trying to post, but nothing happened.  I could not figure out what the problem was, then I realized I was using Internet Explorer so I switched over to Google Chrome, started a new post, pasted what I had originally written and clicked post – voila – it posted!  Now, had I not listened to that inner voice, and not copied it, I would have lost it and given up.  Now I know the reason why I had to post this – someone is going to be blessed by reading this – even if it’s just me, that’s okay with me.  Praise the Lord!!!

Urgent Prayer Request – Neil Picillo

I am asking that everyone please put Neil Picillo on their prayer lists and circulate to as many as possible.  We recently learned that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer.  The doctors say he has 3 months without chemo, maybe a year with chemo.  He opted for the chemo with a positive outlook.  He has developed pneumonia, was severely dehydrated and he is having surgery tomorrow to remove a blockage in his intestines.  Please lift Neil and his family up before the Lord.  Doctors don’t know everything, we don’t know what tomorrow holds but we do know Who holds tomorrow and is All Knowing.  I pray that whatever God’s plan for Neil is, that he and his family have peace, and are able to enjoy the time they do have together.  I have never met Neil, but I do know his nephew and his family, and they are a very loving, giving, tight knit family, and they are standing in faith and believing that God is in control.  Pray for the doctors and nurses that will be taking care of him that they allow God to guide their hands during the surgery.  May He place His angels around Neil and his family to protect them.  May the Holy Spirit comfort them and give them peace and strength, and may He bless those who pray and lift Neil up before the Lord, in Jesus name, amen.

Ahhh September – What will you bring us this year?

I’m sitting here wondering if anyone else is glad that the days of summer are coming to a close and autumn is peeking it’s head around the corner. I want to take time to enjoy the next few weeks before winter starts to rear it’s ugly head and make us long for summer again.

Unlike many, I enjoy the fall and don’t really mind the winter – except when there is ice and slush on the ground. I am looking forward to bringing my sweaters out of the storage containers and have already begun putting a few decorations out – but not too many – I am also trying to simplify things – a.k.a. time to start throwing some of this stuff out.

I look forward to football games, nights of hot bowls of chili, homemade soups, stews, baking, and snuggling on the couch with my favorite blanket and some hot chocolate. I look forward to not having to run the AC and lower electric bills.

I just have to remember to be in the moment and savor each day because before we know it we’ll be making our lists, checking them twice, and trying to figure out how we’re going to find extra money to pay for those gifts!!! And on that note, how crazy is it that some stores have Halloween and Thanksgiving items on one side of the isle and Christmas items on the other??? I wonder if they’ll take it to the next level and do a Valentines / Easter combo one isle over?

Today’s Thought Proverbs 15:1

” A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger.” (NLT) 

I have some scriptures on my desk that I flip to every now and then, and this was the card I flipped to today.  How true His words are.  So many times, it’s not the just the words we use, but the tone with which we deliver them.  The message we may have may not be what the receiver wants to hear, but if we think before we speak, and ask God to guide us and give us the correct words and tone, we can avoid hurt feelings, miscommunications, anger, or damaged relationships.  May God bless you and keep you in His care. ^i^

Prayer Request for My Dear Friend and her Mom

Dear friends and prayer warriors, today I am asking for you to pray for a dear friend of mine and her mother.  My friend’s Mother is nearing the end of her days on this earth and nearing her reuniting with our Lord.  This is a very difficult time for the family for many reasons, so I am asking that your prayers be for His perfect peace to be upon each of them, and for His strength for my friend both physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Please open her mother’s ears to hear what is right and good for her care, and for the enemy to bound and silenced.  The enemy is trying to separate this family even more than it already is.  May God’s hand be upon my friend guiding her actions and words as she tries to make her mother comfortable.  May He open her mother’s ears to my friends words about what is needed to be done in these last days.  I pray that my friends family support her and take care of things at home while she is away taking care of her mother.  May His perfect peace, wisdom, strength, and love multipy and magnify and surround each of the family members.  May the Holy Spirit comfort them.  May God be given the Glory and may the enemy and his evil works be silenced, bound, and banished to the pit of hell, in the Mighty, Matchless, Perfect and Glorious Name of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, amen, amen, and amen.

Prayer Request – C

Dear prayer partners, I have been asked by my friend Maureen to put someone on the prayer list.  I do not know his name, but God knows him and his needs.  Please lift Maureen’s friend “C” up before the Lord.  “C” is facing monumental health challenges. Please ask God to give “C” and his family peace and strength.  May God, who knows each of His children by name bless “C” according to His will.  May He give him strength, peace and comfort in Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
