Please Pray

I’ve mentioned Henley and her family on this blog before, and I want to thank those of you who have been praying for her.

The most recent update is that Henley is septic and is currently at Riley.  She’d been recovering pretty well from her latest treatment, and this development is obviously unexpected and scary.

If you’re willing, please take a moment and pray for Henley and her family.

Here is the link to her CaringBridge page: Henley

Today we have some on-going requests — and some BIG praises!

1. First, is Henley.  Please continue to pray that ALL the disease would leave her body.  Big praise for Henley and her family: If things stay on schedule, then they’ll be able to be home for Christmas!  This has been a major prayer for them, so to see it answered is wonderful!  (Henley’s Website: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/bravebee)

2. Please continue to pray for Rachel.  Rachel is in her mid-30s has cancer in several areas.  The situation has progressed to the point where they can’t give her any more treatments, so she’s been put on hospice care (the doctors estimate that she may live up to a month).  Please pray for peace and comfort for Rachel, as she is concerned about leaving her husband and their 7-year-old son (who has autism).  Please pray for her husband and son, too, during this incredibly difficult time.  (We know God can perform miracles.  Please pray one for this family.)  Here is a link to Rachel’s CareCalendar: http://carecalendar.org; ID: 38500; Security code: donnyis6.

3. Please also pray for strength, healing, and a reduction of pain for my friend, Garland, who has been fighting bone cancer for almost 4 years now and has recently had some complications.  He has been such a great example of someone who loves God, loves God’s Word, and loves others for so many people throughout his 70+ years.  (Please also pray for his lovely wife, Pat.)

4. Update on Matthew‘s (age 12) heart surgery: The procedure went well and he’s doing well!  Praise God!  (They’ll be replacing the valve in June.)

5. Praise for my friend Erica and the good news on Emersyn!  If you haven’t read Erica’s story, you can do so here: Erica’s website.

Below are some prayer requests for this week.  Please pray for God’s Will and for His Presence and Peace in these situations.

1. Please pray for Dawna’s friend.  Here’s the information from Dawna’s comment last week: Dawna’s friend Rachel (mid-30s) has cancer in several areas.  The situation has progressed to the point where they can’t give her any more treatments, so she’ll be put on hospice care (the doctors estimate that she may live up to a month).  Please pray for peace and comfort for Rachel, as she is concerned about leaving her husband and their 7-year-old son (who has autism).  Please pray for her husband and son, too, during this incredibly difficult time.  (We know God can perform miracles.  Please pray one for this family.)

Dawna: Does Rachel have a CaringBridge page (or something similar) where people might be able to leave words of comfort and encouragement for her and her family?  If so, I’d love to post that information.  Thanks!

2. Please continue to pray for healing for Henley as she begins this new round of treatments.  Please pray also that the whole family would be able to be home together for Christmas.  Here’s the link to Henley’s CaringBridge journal page: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/bravebee/journal

3. Please also pray for strength, healing, and a reduction of pain for my friend, Garland, who has been fighting bone cancer for almost 4 years now and has recently had some complications.  He has been such a great example of someone who loves God, loves God’s Word, and loves others for so many people throughout his 70+ years.  (Please also pray for his lovely wife, Pat.)

4. Please pray for Matthew (12 years old) who will have heart surgery on the 20th.  Please pray wisdom for the doctors and protection and peace for Matthew.

5. Praise for the season we’re in!  How wonderful to spend time celebrating God’s saving love for us!  I’m praying that each of you will feel His joy and presence over the next several weeks.  It’s neat to know that even though as Christians we may have a lot of different personal traditions, we’re all celebrating the miracle of Christ’s birth!

(prayer) warrior wednesday

Cranberries 2

I’ve loved reading all the blogs and facebook posts about thankfulness this week.  (If you want to read mine, click here: remaining thankful.)

I think in prayer (all year long) it’s important to remember to include praise and thanksgiving.  For one thing, God deserves it.  For another, it helps us realize how many blessings we have!  (If you want to read another blog on thankfulness, I’d suggest my sister-in-law Emily’s blog post: Time for Thanks.)

Today, I’d like to suggest two areas for (prayer) warrior wednesday:

1. Consider what you’re thankful for.  Making a list might be helpful.  And consider telling those people.  A lot of us talk about what we’re thankful for on Thanksgiving Day.  It might be nice to talk about what we’re specifically thankful for in each person.  (And don’t forget to talk to God about what you’re thankful for about these people AND about Him — remember: all of these good gifts are from Him!)

2. Please continue to pray for Henley.  (Henley’s website)  They’ve had a rough week, and almost lost her.  One of the things I’m most impressed by is what an amazing job Lynsey and Grant do in praising God in the midst of some really serious, heartbreaking prayer requests.  They’re an excellent example for all of us.  (For more on Henley and the other kids I talked about last week, see this post: the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.)

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

The post on Friday will kick off the Christmas posts!
