Today I want to make love tangible for us. A way to reach out to others we know are hurting.
There are two blogs I'd like to lead you to today to pray for two very special people in two very different realities in life, but both desperately need the love of the Christian community..... to reach out to our ever-present God with them..... to hold them up ......... to cry out on their behalf and love them right along side their weary families.
They are: Joanne Heim from The Simple Wife. I know that we all are already aware of this situation, but I just read a post from her 12 year old daughter Audrey, that I believe every one of us needs to read. Powerful. Insightful. Real. Very.Real. Please read. Please pray.
And the other one is Kate McRae. Her brain cancer is back. I don't even know what else to say about that, except to pray. PRAY. For Kate. For Holly (mom). For Aaron (dad). For her brother and sister. For wisdom in unimaginable decisions they are faced with. For Jesus to heal her. Pray. Please Pray. Please read. Please Pray.
I know, and am sure, there are so many others, but these two and their heart wrenching stories are all over my heart today. Please Pray. Please Pray. Please Pray.
Thank you so much ~~ I love you so,
Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."
