Standing In The Need of Prayer

The blog is a powerful tool! I can safely say that it's much more powerful and far-reaching than we realize. We set out to jot our thoughts in this public forum, add a photo, hit "publish", and off we go. But, it goes farther than that, and deeper. People we've never met read what we write, some leave comments and some don't; some send an e-mail. Paula sent me an e-mail, she is a quilter and a long-time reader, she asked if I would pray on her behalf; with significant health issues she is facing hospitalization and surgery next Tuesday. I knew right away that I could do better than that, I could ask all of you to join me in prayer for this courageous lady. She is standing in need of serious prayer; we can lift her up and support her through this difficult time. Yes, the blog is a powerful tool, but not nearly as as powerful as our collective prayers.

Life is Good!

Done and done. "...Pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much!" (James 5:16) Blessings and healing, Pat, and thank you Mrs. G, for the opportunity!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

Prayers are flying from all directions with the goal of appeasing fear and pain, and reaching towards that higher power of love,hope, faith, and affirmation. (((((Pat)))))

I'm sorry I'm late with my prayers but God knew in advance that I would pray for Paula too.

Thank you, Lord for your healing power and for standing with Paula as she goes through surgery. We ask that you heal her and give her peace about the situation she is in. Please take away all fear and help her to trust in You.
In Jesus' name, Amen
