we all know prayers work, i feel like i know a lot of folks who need them right now.
a friend at church, paula, her mom is pretty sick, and right now they are waiting on tests to find out what's going on. she has several medical problems and has just been very sick lately. please pray for some clarity in the test so that they will be able to get a plan of action together.
maria, who i lead acteens with, had an accident on her boat this past weekend, and fell on something that injured her tail bone/rectum. she had surgery yesteday and is doing well, just keep her family, the cooks, in your prayers as she is recovering.
debbie, who also leads acteens with us, her husband is searching for a job, and is having to work nights right now, which is a huge adjustment for them. i pray for a short job search and that God will lead bill to the right job, and that the two of them will be able to endure the yucky schedule they are living with now.
karen, in my sunday school class is going through chemo for breast cancer right now. she is absolutely the most graceful woman i have known while going through treatment. she is very hopeful, and seems very "matter of fact" about the whole thing. i pray for her doctors and her family, and that if she needs to, that she have people that she can be raw with about this. i've not gone through it myself, but know those who have, and cannot imagine the fear/anger/questions that one would have.
pray for me as i am struggling with some things this week... i am ok, i just know that i could be better, and i am trying hard to work on that, but satan is trying hard for me not to.
i know there are others, these are just the ones that have been weighing on my heart today.
