It might not hurt to carry some hand sanitizer in your pocket. We are still having children and staff who are coming down with the stomach virus that made the news. Not nearly as bad as last week, but the virus is now affecting the older siblings and family members of our South Douglas kiddos. I was out one day with it, but others have been out for several days with this virus. A few of our kids and a couple of staff members had to have IV fluids and Zofran to stop the vomiting. To top it off there is a nasty respriatory infection going around as well that is sometimes leading into bronchitis, esp with our asthma children. And as usual strep throat, which seems to always be in the building to some degree or another.

(follow-up) - Paige , the expectant mother carrying twins (one viable, one not) is too sick for them to do the anticipated C-section. They say her red cells are non-existent, and her white ones have taken over.
They put her on a high powered antibiotic, and she has to check her blood daily. If her red cells come up at all, they will take the living child, Genna. Paige still has the staph and is a strep carrier, so now they told her they can't do an epidural, so Paige will have to be asleep for the birth.
(from her mom) "I feel like I am holding on by the skin of my teeth, and I can't even begin to imagine how Paige feels!! I just don't want to lose my daughter, and Paige doesn't want to lose hers. I will let you know when anything happens. Many prayers are needed."

Robert and Marie Buice:

We ask that everyone please pray for the well being of my mother, Grace Lewis.  She had a bad stroke two weeks ago.  Her doctor sent her home.  She is unable to talk legibly and is bed ridden. Hospice is attending to her regularly. Her throat is 95% paralyzed and it is extremely hard for her to drink water even when dropped from a straw. She cannot see in one eye and is able to only see less than 2% in the other and unable to talk except in a very low tone. She chose some time ago to not be put on any type artificial feeding. Her prognosis is less than 2 weeks.  She wants to pass on to be with God and Chris and Jim, her husband.  This is the reason we have not left her in 3 weeks and have not been in church.
Thanks to you and everyone at New Covenant for your prayers. God Bless.

Thanks for your prayers and praise the Lord for competent medical professionals.

July 8 Sandra Bryant

Tony had a chemo treatment on Monday, but his doctor has changed his treatment plan.
Tony will now have a treatment once week instead of a five-day one week treatment.
The aggressive 5-day was was too hard on his body, and was draining him too much. The severe weakness and nausea was making it hard for him to function.  Hopefully this new plan will work better for him.
On a brighter note, my sister Joyce had a PET scan this week, and the results were what we have hoped and prayed for NO CANCER found.  She will take two more treatments, but is now considered in remission. 
Please continue to pray for Tony and the God given miracle we're expecting for him, and praise God for the healing of Joyce.
Thanks again for all the prayers.

July 8 Arubra Hembree

Phil Hembree, our wonderful brother, cousin, uncle, nephew, had a heart attack last nite around 7:30 (Wednesday, 7-7)…his girlfriend, Debbie,  was with him and got him to the Fire Dept. in time and they did an EKG and then rushed him to Cobb General Hospital.  Time was an important factor and all was taken care of within the 90 minute time frame which is important when having a heart attack.  He rested well last night. 
They took the catheter out of Phil this morning (7-8) and he has to remain still for the next 4 hours – He will be in ICU for the next 24 hours.  Thank you so much for your prayers and please continue to lift him up.  The doctor suggests no visitors until he is out of ICU.  He needs to remain still and calm so the artery will not start bleeding.  He had 99% blockage but a stent was placed in that area and checking other arteries out now for flow.  The doctors will determine what meds will be needed.  Thank you again and the family appreciates all of your love and support.  Call me if you need any additional information, 404-934-3208.  Thanks - The Hembree’s

Continue your prayers for Phil and the family.

Mike Shearon was at Cobb visiting his mom, Ann, when Phil was brought in.  He prayed with him prior to Phil going back for a heart catheterization.  He reports that it appears that the prompt action by Phil of going to the fire station and the prompt transport to the hospital has mitigated any major damage.

June 10 Chris Standridge

You may remember the prayer request for little Emily, daughter of the Cawthon's, close friends of Chris Standridge.  She has been allowed to come home and here is a note from her mom, Meredith.

"I am so excited to send this update tonight! I just wanted to let all of you know that Emily came home today :)! 
Basically she was released from the hospital almost 2 weeks ahead of schedule and we could not be more proud of her and all she has accomplished in the last 2 weeks and 3 days. Many of the things they told us to prepare for were things Emily did not need and she just progressed faster than anyone expected. Praise be to God!

We are ever so grateful for the wonderful doctors and nurses who treated Emily and took care of her at Scottish Rite. She was a favorite among many of the nurses and they were sad to see her go today!
I also have to brag on my little boy and Emily's BIG brother. I was worried about how he would react to Emily's homecoming since he has not met her yet (he was not old enough to visit the NICU) and we have been talking about Emily and "the baby" for quite some time, yet he has never seen her. But, he exceeded all of my expectations and was so sweet to her...he smothered her with kisses and just loved her. I am sure we will have our moments in the days and weeks ahead, but I couldn't have dreamed of a better reaction from him and it just melted my heart to finally see them together :)!
Again, I just can't thank all of you enough for your continued thoughts, prayers, and support. They have sustained us through a very difficult time, and we have seen the prayers answered in Emily. We feel that the journey is really just starting for us now and so appreciate your continued prayers for our family. I especially have a lot to learn about the unfolding mystery of life, and something tells me that I will learn a lot from Miss Em.
Enjoy the pictures and thanks again for EVERYTHING! God is good!!!

June 8 Bonnie Ricks

for Tony Bryant:
Sandra asks for prayers for Tony. He had a little bit of good news, but some more news that was not so good. (see message below from Sandra) = = =

We got the results of his PET scan and brain MRI yesterday. We didn't get the good news we had hoped for, but there were some things to be thankful for. The spot on his brain was gone, and the tumors that had shrank before had not grown any. However, he has developed two more tumors, and several malignant lymph nodes that weren't there last time. His doctor is changing to another type of chemo in hopes of controlling and killing the cancer cells. Starting next week, he will begin a 5-day treatment every three weeks for the next nine weeks. He is feeling more tired and weaker than before, but is still optimistic. Please continue to lift him up in prayer for healing, and for the miracle that we know he can and will receive from God. Also, continue to pray for my sister Joyce, who is also battling this devil disease too. She, like Tony, needs a healing miracle. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Sandra

A quick update on Emily Brooks Cawthon:

Her surgery this afternoon was a success and she is doing great.   Her mom, Meredith, thanks everyone at New Covenant for their prayers and encouraging emails.  She said they helped tremendously.   Attached is a picture Meredith and Emily (before surgery today) that she wanted to share.

I want to thank everyone for your prayers for Emily as well.   New Covenant may be small in numbers, but I have to believe God must think we have a thousand members from the prayers that go up.   I believe that NCUMC has to be the best church family in Douglas County!   I love you all!

Chris Standridge
May 25 Chris Standridge

I have a prayer request from a friend in North Carolina:
Please pray for my friend’s mother, Carolyn Parker, who thought she had a stomach virus for the last week but was rushed to the hospital this morning where they discovered an intestinal blockage.   They are trying a non-invasive procedure first but will need to do surgery if the procedure doesn’t work.

Also, an update on little Emily Brooks Cawthon:
Emily’s surgery was postponed yesterday due to other emergencies that came up in the NICU at Scottish Rite that required the surgeon’s immediate attention.   Emily is doing fine and is being fed intravenously.   She will hopefully be rescheduled for sometime today.    Please continue  to keep her and her parents in prayer.   They are very grateful that this is Emily’s only health concern but I know they are anxious to have it taken care of so they can start planning for the day they take her home.   Please also keep those little babies (and their caregivers) in the NICU in prayer;  they are all such tough little fighters!

May 24 Chris Standridge

I just received an update on my friend, and co-worker, Meredith Cawthon.    Her baby girl, Emily Brooks, arrived yesterday morning at 2:36 a.m. weighing in at 5 lbs. 8 oz..    She was born with an abdominal blockage (which the doctors were aware of beforehand – and which I forgot to mention in my prayer request) and is scheduled to undergo surgery this morning at Scottish Rite to remove it.   Abdominal blockages are very common in Down Syndrome children so the doctors do not expect any complications from the surgery.   And to show that God watches over His special children in a very special way, the surgeon on call this morning just happens to be the cousin of someone in our HR department, which Meredith found very comforting.

Please continue to keep Meredith and her husband, Will, in prayers in the coming days and months as they travel down the wonderful (and sometimes uncertain) road of raising this special child.

Just a brief update on Tony's condition.  For the most part he feels very good.  He has a few days after treatment that he feels tired, but all in all he feels pretty good.  He will have another treatment the 5th of April, and at that time we hope to find out when they will be doing a PET scan to see how effective these treatments have been.  It is our hope and prayers that this will show the cancer gone.  Thanks for all the prayers, and please continue to lift him up in prayer for healing.  He still remains very upbeat and optimistic, and this has made his treatments much easier.

With Love, Sandra

An update on our baby grand-niece, Aloura Curtis:

The doctors at Scottish Rite ran more detailed testing on her today and rushed the test results.   She does NOT have cystic fibrosis.   Praise the Lord!    She may be a carrier of the gene because her mother is a carrier, but she does not have it herself which means she doesn’t have even a risk of developing it at a later age.

Thank you for your prayers!  God is good…..ALL the time!

Jan. 27 Joe Hamilton

from Soundbites devotional - a prayer for Haiti:

Many Christians speculate as to why God allowed this earthquake to strike Haiti , even some on TV.  They say, "God is punishing them.  They deserve it."  God says in Job about their speculations, "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?" (Job 38:1)  As the world listens, we must make sure that we have a proper attitude in receiving and representing God's will to the hurting people of Haiti and the world.  What is a proper attitude in approaching God after such a display of His awesome power?   I am mindful of Esther's contrite attitude toward her king, "If it pleases the king and if I have found favor before him and the matter seems proper to the king and I am pleasing in his sight..." (Esther 8:5) And what if our actions towards the people of Haiti , including our brothers and sisters in Christ, would be as Mordecai's, "he sought the welfare of his people and spoke peace to all his people." (Esther 10:3b)  

May we speak words of peace and seek for the welfare of all in Haiti , beginning with earnest prayer that God will send many shod with the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ so that a new Haiti will emerge from this catastrophe, born again into God's family. "The scripture says, 'No one who believes in Him will be put to shame.' For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on Him. For, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.' But how are they to call on One in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in One of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim Him? And how are they to proclaim Him unless they are sent? As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'… So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the Word of Christ." (Romans 10:11-17) 

Jan. 26 George Hall John Matthew Davis & Carrie Maniscalco

from The United Methodist Committee on Relief:

Previous news reports were in error.

United Methodist Relief Executive Dies Before Rescue from Hotel Ruins in Haiti

New York, NY, Jan. 16, 2010 - The Rev. Dr. Sam Dixon, head of the humanitarian relief agency of The United Methodist Church, died before he could be rescued from the rubble of a hotel destroyed by the earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12.

The executive officer of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) was part of a group of mission and relief specialists trapped by the collapse of the Hotel Montana. Other persons in the group of five, including two more from the General Board of Global Ministries, were rescued and were back in the US by the morning of January 16. The group was pinned down for more than 55 hours.

Dixon was reportedly alive in the hotel ruins on the morning of January 15. Confirmation of his death before rescue was conveyed to Global Ministries through several sources, including eyewitnesses from a Methodist guest house in Port-au-Prince, where Dixon and his colleagues had been staying. Frequent press reports throughout the day on January 15 asserting his safety were incorrect.

Please be in prayer for Dr. Dixon's family, as well as for the ongoing recovery of the others rescued, and all survivors in Haiti.

Jan. 15 Joe Hamilton

It is a blessing and glory to God to be able to report that our three UMC friends at UMCOR and Mission Volunteers for whom you have been praying are alive after spending 55 hours trapped in the rubble of the Hotel Montana in Port-au-prince!  

Still, we recognize that for tens of thousands of other families, the news is not so good.  We know that as God calls us to the broken places of the world, and that we will be working in Haiti for many years.

Jan. 14 Kim Cannon

Kim's father, Doug Johnson, is in the Cobb hospital with severe kidney problems and a staph infection.  Please remember him in your prayers.

Missing mission execs seen entering destroyed Haiti hotel

NEW YORK (UMNS)—Three missing United Methodist mission executives were seen entering the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince shortly before the Jan. 12 earthquake rocked the capital, destroying the hotel. Even as hopes for their survival dimmed, officials with the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries were still holding out hope Jan. 14 that the Rev. Sam Dixon, top executive of the United Methodist Committee on Relief; the Rev. Clinton Rabb, head of Mission Volunteers; and Jim Gulley, an UMCOR consultant, are somehow still alive. Rescue operations at the hotel are continuing.

Please say a special prayer for these men who were serving their Lord in a place of the most profound need, as well as prayers for their families.

Additional information on this is available at the UMC WebSite.

Please keep the Gomez family in your prayers.   Eusebio Gomez, the 9 yr. old nephew of my co-worker, Mike Gomez, died in his sleep unexpectedly Thursday night.   They do not yet know the cause of his death as he was not sick and did not have any underlying health conditions that they were aware of.    The family is completely devastated as expected.    Please especially keep Mike's mother in prayer as she is in her 80's and the family is worried about her health and also Eusebio's 3 siblings, who are scared by Eusebio's unexpected passing and are questioning if it will happen to them.   The funeral is set for Wednesday.......two days before Christmas.    What makes this even more difficult is that Mike's other brother lost his wife last year between Thanksgiving & Christmas after a very brief battle with cancer.

She has a follow up with the ortho folks and will determine at that time what she wants.

Scheduled for surgery tomorrow and anticipate several follow on surgeries. Outlook is she will be there for several weeks at best perhaps longer. Her condition is pretty much day to day at this time.

July 8 Chris Standridge

I wanted to send an update on the two precious little baby girls:

Reagan Hamaker:     I just had the opportunity to visit with this precious little redhead.  She is so sweet!    She had an appt. with the pediatric eye surgeon this morning.   Surgery is expected to be on Monday if they can fit her in.  The dr. will be removing three different things from her left eye:   the scar tissue (which is the hyaloid vessel that should have disintegrated during the 3rd trimester), the cataract and today her parents learned he'll also be removing the lens because there is so much scar tissue connected to it.  After surgery the dr. will be able to give them a better perspective of how healthy the left eye is.  They do not know if she will get contacts, go through patching or do any kind of rehabilitation until a week after surgery when they meet with another pediatric eye specialist.   The good news…her right eye is perfectly healthy!  Please continue to pray for her and her parents.  They are completely confident in the Great Physician and continue to marvel at how He is showing His hand in all of this day by day.

Kamryn Thompson:   Her digestive/intestinal problems have abated with the medication and she's doing much better.   The dr. doesn't feel there is a need for any further procedures at this time.   Praise God!

Thank you for your continued prayers!

July 2 Christine Standridge

Please put Reagan Hamaker on the prayer list.   She is the 8-week old daughter of my co-worker and friend.   Her parents found out yesterday that Reagan is blind in her left eye due to a growth within her eye that should have gone away on its own shortly after she was born.  She will need surgery to remove a cataract that has formed and also remove the growth.   The doctor told Reagan's parents that she will need a patch over her "good" eye for several years (at a minimum) until the other eye strengthens and learns how to work.    If the growth had been discovered at 2 weeks (which the eye dr. said is the normal age that this condition is diagnosed) then the recovery time would have been much shorter.  

Also, please pray for Kamryn Thompson, the 6-week old daughter of another co-worker and friend.   Kamryn has been having some severe digestive issues and saw a specialist on Tuesday.   They have prescribed medication which seems to be finally offering relief.   Please pray for continued improvement.

This Air Force 2nd Lt. sent this letter to his family in the states asking for prayer for his "other family" in the middle east. Lets lift all of our soldiers up in prayer this Christmas season. Following is the letter he e-mailed his family.

Hey Mom, Dad, Courtney, and Grandma,

I was just writing to let you know that I will be heading home here in a couple of hours after the Commander's Call. I am so blessed to be able to come home to ya'll for Christmas. Sometimes it gets kind of lonely out here without you, and I'm sure you are worried about me. Just know that I am with my other family out here, and they take care of me just like ya'll. Along with that, I have been thinking about the soldiers over seas and how they can't be home for the holidays to see their families. If you can, just take a few minutes today or whenever to pray for them. Do not be sad though, because they are also with their families out there in the field. They, along with I knew the sacrifices we would have to make in serving this country. But freedom is well worth the price. As you have heard many times before, freedom isn't free, and we all understand that. Anyways, I just had a few minutes to write this before the CC call, and just wanted to say I love you and will see you soon. 

Lots of Love,

Dec. 23 Ann Eskew

Dec. 3 Larry Mahle From an Emmaus sister; Dear Family in Christ,

As some of you know, my dad is a minister in down town Covington, Kentucky. It is a very poor area yet the church is doing some great ministry there. One of the women in the church is in her 40's, has a 2 year old and just had a baby. After years of trying, this has been a huge blessing! She is a nurse and though she knew the problems associated with pregnancy so late in life, she never could have predicted this. During her pregnancy, she developed cancer. It has taken over her liver, kidneys, lungs, and most of her body. She may not have long. She begins treatment very soon. I am
asking for some very specific prayers. I am also asking that you send this on to any prayer chains you can. I know that Mayfield UMC has a prayer team, Emmaus has prayer teams, and Wesley UMC has a prayer team. PLEASE SEND THIS ON!

1. I believe that praying for healing is appropriate in this case. God works through prayer! Sandy has the Doctors and the medication she needs. Now we need to provide for the spirit and pray for healing, body, mind, and spirit!
2. Pray that the Meier family (Mom-Sandy, Dad-Nicholas, son-Nicholas, and baby-Henry) have the strength, hope, love, faith, and support to get through this.
3. Pray that the anger, frustration, confusion, and other negative emotions might not keep them from making the most of the time they still have.
4. Pray that those ministering to the family (my dad-Eugene Penn, the church- Epworth UMC) might have the words and wisdom needed to guide this family.

Thank you for your love and support! Thank you for being there for a sister in Christ that you may not have met but already know because of our sacred kinship.

Many thanks
God bless

Please continue to keep our granddaughter, Ryleigh, on the prayer list.   She made enormous progress over the weekend and, as of Sunday night, the drs. were saying she could be sent home Monday or Tuesday.   However, during the night on Monday, she had an episode of sleep apnea and stopped breathing.   They don't know if it was just a one-time thing or if there is something else wrong, so they are now keeping her until at least Friday to run more tests.    The doctors told her parents that sleep apnea is related to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) so of course we are all very concerned and Jessica is beside herself.   BUT, we are praising and thanking God that this episode happened at the hospital where it was immediately addressed, and not at home when she was in her own bed.
Thank you!!

Please put our new granddaughter (Jessica's baby) on any prayer lists that you can.  Ryleigh Michelle was born Tuesday evening with fluid in her lungs.   She was immediately taken to the NICU and diagnosed (several hours later) with respiratory distress syndrome which the Dr. said was common in premature babies (although Jessica's Dr. said she was a full term).   She made small improvements yesterday; the fluid was gone by last evening, but she's still on oxygen and a CPAP machine to force air into her lungs.  But she looked much better last night than the night before.  However, we just got word that more fluid has accumulated in her lungs so are now testing her for infection as well as other possible causes.  As you can imagine, we are all very concerned, but we know that the Great Physician is in charge and He will take care of her.

follow up - I wanted to give you all an update on Baby Hayden.  The little fellow is still hanging on.   He is stable right now.  He is on antiboctics.  They took him off some of the sedation medication to see if he would have any movement.  He has been switching and making sucking motions with his mouth (he does that when he is hungry).  That has been encouraging to see.  I asked Jessica, the mom, what we can be specifically praying for right now and she said that his left lung would clear up.  His left lung is his best lung and the worst with all the fluid right now.  Due to other health problems he experienced earlier with his heart, his right lung is only working at 30% of what it should be.  The doctors were wanting to get out some of the fluid out of the left lung soon.  God is working here in this little fellow's life, so please keep praying.

May 1 Don and Joanna Madlena
Ambassador Church Ministries

We have a urgent prayer request, This is a family we have know for about 17 years and they have a baby that needs a miracle right now.  He may not make it through the day.  If you would please pass this along to your prayer groups we would appreciate it

Please pray for Hayden, a 18 mo. old baby boy.  He was born with a clef lip and palet, a heart defect, and immunity problems.  He was to have a transplant to correct the immunity problem this month.  Last Monday (a week and half ago), he has admitted to Egleston Childrens Hospital because of a high fever.  At the hospital it was 107 degrees.  The doctors thought their thermometer was broken, but it wasn't.  They had never seen a temperature that high before.  For the past week his body has been fighting with the high fevers, high and low blood pressures, a racing heart (beating 4 times a second).  The CDC came and could not figure it out.  All the tests came back negative.  They put him on a eco machine and they filtered his blood last week.  He was showing improvement at the beginning of the week so they were slowly weaning him off the machine. He was showing improvement.  Yesterday, he took a turn for the worse, they turned up the machine as high as it could go with still no improvement.  They said he wouldn't make it through the night.  Today, he is still fighting for his life, the doctors say it doesn't look good.  He need's a miracle from our Great Healer.  He is bleeding from his nose again and out of his liver, and his body is still swollen.  They are saying now that it looks like he has a bad case of pneumonia, because of the way his longs look.  They say it is like the pneumonia that AIDS patients gets.  Jessica, the mom, is taking things pretty hard.  She feels everyone is against her and her son.  She is going through denial.  Please pray for Beto (the dad), Jessica and especially Hayden, and the rest of the family during this difficult time.  It would be awesome to see a miracle, for a total a complete healing for this little one and from any lasting effects.  They say because of the high fever that he will have some brain damage.  Pray that if God does decide to take him home, that he will comfort the family and draw them closer to Him, and/or not to blame Him. 

We'll keep you informed on what happens.

Stephen Werner was killed in an accident on I 75.  Stephen was a Sr at Kennesaw State. His funeral was Friday. 

On Wednesday, Frank's sister, MJ Weakes, was in a head on collision in Memphis (where she lives) and is currently on life support in a medically induced coma to allow for stabilization of the pressure in her head which is the result of the trauma to her brain (head injury).  We're taking this all a day a time.  She improves slightly at times but then takes a step back. They are not able to attend to her other injuries (broken neck/back/leg/ankle) until they are able to stabilize the brain injury.  There is risk of infection or pneumonia due to the length of time that she has been on the ventilator without any elevation to her head/body which is not possible until the brain stabilizes.  Please keep her and the family in your prayers as this is such a very difficult time.  We have strong faith that God is in control of this situation.

The big problem is that when she was a small girl she was diagnosed with polio in that leg.  She wore leg braces for many years and that caused the leg to be much smaller. 

She is in the hospital now and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow around 2pm in the afternoon.  They plan to place a rod inside her leg due to the type of fracture and the polio she had.  Please pray for her, as she is in a lot of pain and very afraid.  She was very happy to know that we would be praying for her and thanks everyone.  I will update everyone as I hear some news.

Dec. 7 Chris Standridge
I have a praise to report!   Carolyn had her hearing re-tested this morning and it's improved!!    The audiologist said that, although it's unusual, it's not unheard of that having tonsils & adenoids out can actually help improve hearing loss, especially if they were large (which Carolyn's were).     She will always have some degree of nerve loss, but her hearing at the lower tone levels has improved enough that the audiologist was able to delete one of the automatic programs that her hearing aides switch to in certain noise situations because she's now able to differentiate between sounds at those levels.  She expects that within the next 6 months we might see a little more improvement, too.  
God is good....all the time!
Praise Him! Chris Standridge

Nov. 13 Larry Mahle We're in the midst of the worst drought the Southeast has seen in over 100 years.  What should we do???

James 5:17-18 reads, "Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.  Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops."

I Samuel 12:18 reads, "Then Samuel called upon the Lord and that same day the Lord sent thunder and rain.  So all the people stood in awe of the Lord..."

2 Chronicles 7:13-14 reads, "...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered..."

Start where you're at right now with a prayer to the Lord. Continue praying daily "without ceasing".  Don't forget to praise Him when the rains come (not "if", but "when" rains come)!  Pass this along to other prayer warriors, to your church family, to your prayer groups, to unite in fervent prayer... we, too, will stand in awe of the Lord!

The Lord says "Fear not", "Do not worry"... He is in control.  He promises that if we ask, we shall receive!  Praise Him! Amen!!!

Tests show that there is something very wrong with the baby.  Please pray that this first time mother-to-be is guided by the Holy Spirit to make the right decision and not by those who might tell her that the situation is hopeless. I know of so many people who were given bad news during their pregnancy (and were urged by doctors to "explore options") only to rejoice in a completely healthy baby after delivery.

Sept. 11 Chris Standridge Please put this little boy and his family on our prayer list.     We received this today; Brayden will be here tomorrow to meet Truett and eat some nuggets!   His story would touch the heart of anyone.    He fell while playing with his brother at a pool in July.   His parents took him to the hospital to make sure he didn't have a concussion and instead the doctors found a large mass on his brain stem which turned out to be a very rare form of childhood cancer that is extremely aggressive and does not typically respond to treatment.    Had he not fallen, they would have never found it until it was too late to do anything to either help him heal or make his childhood dreams come true.   God works in wonderful & mysterious ways….. Chris Standridge
