Prayer Requests-Christmas Eve 2003

| | Comments (2)

Give thanks to God, for He is good, His love endures forever.


[to be later moved to projects] From Davey's Mom: I am with child once again and could use prayers for a healthy pregnancy.

Thank God for the short duration of Peony's ailment, and pray that she might be in fine fettle to entertain guests.


For all the people who will get back into a church because of Christmas, to be inspired to come back to the Church

Special intention for Katherine and Franklin as they struggle with unemployment.

For Carol K. and family who suddenly and quite unexpectedly lost her mother to pneumonia.

For Christine's father who has an undiagnosed but severe potassium defficiency that has everyone around him extremely concerned. He's on liquid Potassium now, which can have severe effects, please pray that these will be minimal.

For Karen (Mother of 9) who is seriously ill and for her husband that God grant Him the strength to bear up under it. (I'll be making special prayers for this one because I understand how it feels under much less stressful conditions (1 Child and minor hospitalization).

For the men and women of the American Armed forces who will not be able to spend this holiday season with their families, that this may nevertheless be a season of "comfort and joy" beyond their greatest expectations.

For Jane, Janet, Shirley, and for all for whom this season of the Nativity is a time of hardship and difficulty because of the pain of the past.

Special Prayer Projects:

(1) Chris Keith, the young lady whose biopsy went poorly got the results of that biopsy--carcinoma of the liver. I don't know if it's a primary or metastatic. Either way, I paraphrase her mother:

"We [members of the family] are standing on the Rock and are rock solid. We are all okay and we are looking for a few prayer warriors to help us in this battle." Because this mother means so much to me for the great good she has done for my friends, I plan to stand with her and her family in this battle, and I invite you all to join me. Expect to hear about this on and off over the next few months.

(2) For Katherine's Mom as she undergoes chemotherapy--that the treatment is successful and her mother comes through this ordeal with a deeper sense of God's abiding love for her.

(3) For Katherine and Franklin, Christine and Gordon, Janet and Louis, and for all who are seeking employment and suffering through difficult times as they wait.

I welcome the addition of other requests via the comment box. Thank you for keeping this poor Carmelite employed.
