Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Thursday Prayers

Last week I told you I wanted to post once a week requests for prayer and I almost forgot it today, the second week! Maybe I should be asking for prayers for my memory. :)

I have prayed for every one of you who had requests and I know of several others who have as well. Please continue to send me what is on your heart and we will all join together laying those hurts and concerns at the feet of our Father.

Our friend, Charlie, was my first request last week. Charlie passed away about 12:45 this morning. Jerry and I were there till about 11:00 last night and it was quite apparent that it was a matter of hours. His family will appreciate your prayers.

Kim's father, our second request last week, is weathering chemo very well but of course that's going to be a very long battle.

And our daughter, Tammy, will continue to have problems with her back so I continue to ask for prayers for her.

I would like to add my brother and his family to our list. Last Saturday his wife's son and his stepson (he's raised him since he was a child) drowned while at a gathering of friends. He was 44. Please keep that family in your prayers as well.

Please leave us a comment with any request that we might add to this list and also a comment if you are praying for all those readers/commenters on this blog. Blessings to all.....marlene

Dear Marlene,
I lifted your prayer requests up to our loving Father, and I know He heard them. Always remember that no matter what the circumstances, or no matter how things look, God is ALWAYS with us. We are never alone.
Be blessed,
