Prayer Thursday

Hi Ladies!  Happy Thursday! 
Thank you all so much for your prayers this past week!  If we can pray for you, please leave your prayer request in the comments below, or feel free to email me -

Here are our prayer requests for this week -

Please pray for sweet baby Bennett.  He was born oh-so-tiny, but is making great progress!  You can read his little story here.

Please pray for my boss' sister in law.  She had a hysterectomy yesterday and is recovering.

Kasey asked that we please pray for sweet Annika.  She is a little girl in her hometown that was just diagnosed with a rare form of acute lympocytic leukemia.  She is 5 years old and going through treatment.  Please pray for her, her family and her doctors.  I can't imagine what her family is going through.  Isn't she beautiful?  Just look at that smile!

Please pray for baby Cohen's parents. You can read their story here.  He is in God's beautiful hands now. 

Please pray for my friends, April and Brad.  They had twins this, and the babies are so tiny and need a lot of love and TLC.  One of the twins is scheduled to go home soon - praise!  You can visit their page here to read about their story.  They are improving each day - please pray that this continues.

Please pray for sweet Sarah.  She is praying and waiting for God to bless her with a true Godly man that could be a wonderful influence to her young son to share their lives with.  Her testimony is so beautiful, I felt inspired just reading it.

Please pray for the oil spill.  That it will be resolved in the best way possible, protect our oceans, beaches and animals. Please pray for the families of those that lost their lives in this disaster.

Please pray for my sweet friend Jackie.  She is pregnant with quadruplets!  She starts her hospital stay tomorrow.  Please pray for her and the babies.  You can read about her journey here.

Please pray for my Daddy's (Jerry) job search and that his good spirits continue.  He did not get the job offer that he has been interviewing for for months, and I know he is disappointed.  I just know God has the perfect plan for him.

Please pray for my Grandparents, Ed & Helen.  They are having some health troubles, and my grandmother seems like she is suffering from depression. 

Please pray for little Jed Harper.  You can read about his story here.  What a beautiful family turning their sweet son's health over to God.  They are truly inspiring.

Please pray for my Pappa.  It was about this time last year that he and my Daddy made some very difficult decisions regarding her care.  She passed away almost a year ago, and I know he is struggling with all those feelings.  It would mean the world to me if you could please lift him in prayer over the next month.

I have been following Lianna's blog for a few months now, and she just seems like the sweetest girl in the whole world!  She and her husband are waiting for God to bless them with a child.  You can read about them here.  She will be having surgery soon, please pray for her doctors and that God will guide them during their decision making process.

Please pray for all the beautiful wives participating in the Completing Him Challenge.  This week we are asking our husbands what actions are important to them - it is very eye opening!  Could you please say a prayer for my marriage too?  Thank you so much!

Could you please also pray for our friend's Dad?  He had surgery last week and is having some memory problems.  Please pray for their family and his doctors, and that they can find out what is wrong.

Hubby has a prayer request this week - he asks that we pray for him to have motivation.  He is having a rough month at work and is getting discouraged.  Thank you!

Thank you so very much for all of your prayers!  Please let me know if we can pray for you!

Please keep her in your prayers as she has had a really hard last 15 years. My grandfather passed away in 95 with a brain tumor (she took care of him sick for about a year), She remarried and shortly after Earl was dignosed with cancer that led to kidney failure he passed away in 2001, my took care of my great grandmother for 2 years till she passed in 04, Her current Husband Don was dignosed with prostate cancer last year and has been going to treatments. I'm scared that she may be too tired to fight anymore.) please pray for her

Oh Laura, I am so sorry to hear about your Grandma. She must be such a strong woman. I would be honored to pray for her and your family. My Grandmother was very sick about a year ago and I know how scared and worried you must be about her. I try to remember this verse - God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. 2 Tim 1:17
Hang in there, and thank you for the prayer request.
