It always amazes me to see the range of things we pray for: from praying for people with cancer at the one end of the range to praying for a lost telephone. With difficult mothers-in-law, marital difficulties and unfeeling fellow Christians all wrapped up in it somewhere. And knowing with joyful certainty that God hears us all, that no request is too frivolous for Him and that He loves to hear our prayers. So, I just want to pick out a few highlights to keep our prayers focussed: We pray for Amberlight and Sweetestthing who are dealing with cancer. We commit the two of you to the care of our Lord and look forward to you sharing your progress with us. We are here for you, knowing how important praying friends are ? there is scientific evidence for this.
Then, there are a few of us struggling with health issues:- Madhairday and Gingercurl?s sister. I would also like to mention my dh, Bob, here. I so value your prayers because I find it very difficult to pray for myself and for him when the going gets tough.
BlackeyedSusan and Teaandcakeplease are both dealing with the break-up of their marriage and bringing up their children on their own. We pray for strength and also for the undivided support of the churches they belong to. Especially in BES? case we could wish for a bit more understanding.
With CazandBelle we rejoice over the latest scan and pray for peace of mind for the rest of the pregnancy. Do share your feelings with us Caz, if you are able.
PositiveAttitude brought two prayer requests concerning her dds. Dd2 was in a car crash a few weeks ago and really needed another car. Wonderfully, her boyfriend was able to come to her rescue. And dd3 lost her phone on a trip that was a miracle in itself after her recent illness. Here again, prayer was answered and a new phone supplied.
Dippy, we love you, thanks for prompting us to do a new summary. We grieve with you over the loss of friends, but rejoice over birthday parties and broody chickens.
Thanks BES, its appreciated. That's good news about your mum MHD .
Also good news on Crystal, it was a change in medication rather than a deterioration in her condition which caused the problems, so she is home again and feeling better after having had her medication adjusted
I sent a personal message to Poppy, but haven't heard back. Good to hear about Crystal and MHD's mum. Praying for Gingercurl's leaders and their problems. Praying that they will be able to sort things out with the help of Scripture and the Holy Spirit
Hi Sweetest, I was a nurse, but that is not why I asked. I had a parotidectomy in November last year. If you want to talk off-board please PM me. Have prayed for today for you. Is it an MRI scan today?
BES the parotid is a gland in your neck, sort of under your ear-ish area.
I have my seekers group this morning - studying women in the old testament, today is a bit of a difficult passage (Miriam) but I don't want to avoid, I want to grapple, so please pray I don't completely mangle it!!
