Prayer Thursday

Hi Ladies! 

If you have a request, please put it in the comments below or feel free to email me -  I would love to pray for you!

Please pray for the Olsons.  I LOVE following them on their journey.  They truly follow God's calling for their lives - and it is amazing to watch.  She is in bible study in Missouri and her husband is working 7-10 nights in a row and cannot join her because of his job.  Please pray for peace for him and for God to provide the perfect thing for them!

Please please pray for all those suffering from the Wildfires.  Texas is on fire y'all, and it is so tragic and so scary.  We can smell the fire in the air - I cannot imagine losing my home, or worse, someone that I love to a fire.  I cannot stop thinking about people that were not able to get to their animals.  I have literally lost sleep thinking about poor little Bandit being in that situation and me not being able to get to him.  It is heartbreaking.

My good friend Lindsey emailed me with a prayer request this week.  A family friend, Christoper needs lots and lots of prayers.  Please, please pray for him and his family.  Here is her email -

Owana and Ray's son, Christopher has been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer or his esophagus, upper stomach and pancreas.   He has been sick for about 2 weeks, had his Gall Bladder removed thinking that was the culprit, but did not improve.    After several ultrasounds, MRI's and CT scans he was still sick.   An upper GI revealed he has a golf ball sized tumor at the bottom of his esophagus.    He is 39, lives in Grand Prairie and he and Trisha have 3 children.     I talked to Owana earlier this morning and after a good nights sleep she has her battle armour on.    They are devastated and waiting to hear from the Oncologist today.   They just received the diagnosis late last night.   She said the surgeons words were "he will not survive this" and "this should not happen to an otherwise healthy 39 year old"    She said the surgeon wants to get his pain under control so he can go home and spend time with his family before starting his chemotherapy.    That is what Owana wants as well, but she said the oncologists may convince them otherwise.

Please pray for Molly & Marshal.  Their baby was stillborn at 25 weeks.  I cannot imagine the grief and pain that they are experiencing right now.

Please pray for Lianna and her husband.  They suffered a miscarriage.  Please pray for their comfort and healing.

Could you please pray for Christina, my coworkers cousin?  She has cancer and has 18 months of chemo left.  Please pray for her healing and her spirits - she is understandably having a very difficult time.
Could you please pray for our friend Jim?  His Dad has cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.  He is losing weight every day.  Please pray for his healing and his doctors.  Jim is about to move to Hong Kong to be with his family during this difficult time.

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.  This is so hard on them and on my parents and it hurts to watch everyone go through this.  PRAISE - My Edaddy is able to drive again, and should be able to walk soon!  I am so proud of him and so thankful to God!

Please say a quick prayer for all the women waiting for God to bless them with husbands or babies.

Remember how I asked you to please pray for a big work decision?  Thank you!  I have a huge praise - I was offered an incredible position with a new company.  More money, closer to home, less hours.  It will be hard and probably stressful - but I truly felt like it was an answer to prayers and the best thing for my little family.  I just gave my notice to my job yesterday and it was so so hard.  I've been here six years and these people are my family.  They watched me fall in love with hubby, marry him, and have our first baby.  I've grown up so much here!
Could you please also pray for our trip?  Hubby leaves Sunday for the Bahamas and I join him on Wednesday.  I am scared to death to be away from little Jaxson for that long.  I can't even think about it without tearing up.  (I know, I know, I have a problem-haha!).  Please pray that he is fine without me and isn't sad that I am gone.
Thank you so very much for all of your prayers!  Please let me know if we can pray for you!
