I sincerely apologize for being late with our Prayer Requests this week. Work has been beyond crazy - you know, the kind of crazy where you go in early, work through lunch, and go home way too late. That combined with all the fun activities surrounding this time of year, make for one exhaused, forgetful pregnant wifey! We have also had some family things going on with my Emommy and Edaddy, my loving, amazing Grandparents on my Mom's side. There are more details in the prayer requests below.
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are our prayer requests for this week -
Please pray for Nicole. She had a car accident and a fall - and is suffering from a tail bone injury. The doctors told her it could take months and months to heal! She is one of those precious, sweet people that I wish I knew in "real life", and it makes me so sad to know that she is in pain. We need her to heal before her wedding - it's only 5 months away!!!!
Please pray for my coworker, Maurine. She was just diagnosed with breast cancer. They found multiple lumps and determined that the cancer has spread to other parts of her body. She just started chemo and has a beautiful spirit and attitude about it. She is looking for fun hats a scarfs, because the doctors told her she would probably lose all her hair by the new year. Do you know of any fun websites that have fun hats and scarfs? I would love to find her a sassy one!
Please pray for sweet Joanna and her husband, they are waiting for God to bless them with a baby! They are the most adorable couple I have ever seen, truly!
Please pray for Sarah. She is in the process of fundraising to bring little Silas home to his forever family! Please pray that God will provide them the funds that they need to make this possible.
Please pray for my friend Candice and her husband. They are waiting for God to bless them with a child.
Please pray for Teresa. Her husband, Jack, had a stroke and is hospitalized. Their family needs us to pray for them and Jack's doctors and care. You can read about them here.
Please pray for Leslie and Noah. They recently suffered a loss. You can read about them here.
My Grandmother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Since my Grandfather is in the hospital, my parents went to Alabama and brought her back to Texas to stay with them for a few weeks. She is not in good physical or mental shape, and my Dad is staying home to take care of her. He is a saint! I hope that if something like that happened to my Mom, that my hubby would be as gracious. Please pray for her and my parents, and give all of them peace, patience, and understanding.
My Grandfather had his back surgery! It went well, but he is now going through physical therapy and having a difficult time. Please pray that he continues to keep his drive to get better and work hard, and pray for his doctors and PTs. My Aunt is his only visitor, and she lives about an hour and a half away from him. I know it is hard on him to be there alone, and for her to travel almost every evening to go and see him. Please pray for her patience and travels as she continues to go back and forth to visit him. He will be there on Christmas, and just the thought of that breaks my heart into little pieces. I hate that he is so far away.
Please pray for Laura. Her Grandma is showing signs of kidney failure. She has had a very rough time over the past 15 years, losing two husbands and her mother. Please also pray for her husband Don, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year and is going through treatments. Please pray for God to give her the strength and hope to fight through this, and that he hold her tight with love and comfort during this time. Please also pray for Laura's husband, that he have God's guidance in his life right now.
Please pray for sweet baby Bennett. He was born oh-so-tiny, but has been getting bigger and stronger! You can read his little story here.
We have been praying for sweet Annika for awhile now, at the request of Kasey. Please say a special prayer for her dear little body, that God will give her the strength to fight this disease. Annika is 5 years old and was diagnosed with a rare form of acute lympocytic leukemia. 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 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 my Daddy's (Jerry) job search and that his good spirits continue. I just know God has the perfect plan for him.
I have been following Lianna's blog for a few months now, and she just seems like the sweetest girl! She and her husband are waiting for God to bless them with a child. You can read about them here. Please pray for their journey to become parents.
Please say a quick prayer for all the women waiting for God to bless them with husbands or babies.
Thank you for praying for hubby and I! Can I ask that you please pray for our little one? I know it's silly, but there are so many times that I worry about him in there :)
Thank you so very much for all of your prayers! Please let me know if we can pray for you!
