Prayer Thursday

Hi Ladies! 

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 - michelle.ann.ellis@gmail.com

Here are our prayer requests for this week -

Please pray for my dear friend Lindsey's family.  Her sweet sister Jill has been in the hospital.  She has some damage to her heart valve caused by a high fever.  So very scary.  Her doctors are hoping that they can treat the damage with IV antibiotics, but if not, she will have a valve repair surgery.  She has two beautiful little girls and a wonderful husband.  Please pray for Jill's healing, her family, and her doctors throughout her course of treatment.
Please pray for Mrs. Olson, she is struggling with depression.  Pray that God gives her hope and happiness (and a good night's sleep!).

Please pray for Emily's family.  Her Brother In Law's Mom was just diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  She is currently undergoing treatment.  Please pray for her, her doctors, her faith, and her family during this time.  I pray that God gives her strength and hope. Praise - her liver is clean!!

Please pray for my coworker, Maurine.  She has been 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 and 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, and I would be hard pressed to find a kinder, more deserving couple!

Please pray for Leslie and Noah.  They recently suffered a loss and are waiting to become parents.  You can read about them here.

Could you please pray for my Grandparents?  They are living home alone right now with the help of nurses.  It is very, very difficult.  Please pray that they will let God guide them in their decisions for their futures and their care.  My parents are going to visit them this weekend, and will discuss bringing them to Texas for retirement community care.  Please pray for God to give my parents the words and to open their hearts and minds to the perfect decision for their future.  This is so hard on them and on my parents and it hurts to watch everyone go through this.

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!  And, he's HOME!  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.  He hasn't been working for a year - I can't believe it's been that long!

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 you please pray for baby Jaxson?  He is doing great, but I worry about him in there.  I am having some very uncomfortable pelvic swelling, and my doctor is concerned that I am developing a hernia. Please pray that it doesn't progress into that.  Thank you so much!
Thank you so very much for all of your prayers!  Please let me know if we can pray for you!
