Another Prayer Request Please

Aren't the clouds pretty? On our trip to Pennsylvania this is how the sky looked the entire time. It was nice to sit back and just look at God's beauty. I took picture after picture of the clouds with my cell phone. I didn't know cell phones could take that good of a picture!

It's been another long week. My heart is burdened for so many hurting families. I pray for them, but that doesn't seem to be enough. I wish I knew what else I could do. I know that sometimes the only thing you can do is pray and give it ALL over to God.

We learned this week that a young man from our church had comitted suicide. He was only 20 years old. My husband and I both had him in Awana. He was a sweet boy. You just never know what is going on inside a person's head.

Please be in prayer for this family. The young man's father recently had a stroke and has been in intensive care. I don't know if he will even be able to attend his own son's funeral.

Thank you for remembering them in your prayers.

Is there something I can be praying for you this week? Please let me know. I want to know and care about each of you that stop by!

I'm praying for this family. So many hurting people in the world. I know what you mean that prayer doesn't seem like enough, but He knows what they truly need and will meet the needs. I have had a person call, a word spoken, an invite out, all at different times without those people ever knowing that I needed it. But He knew. He provided. When I pray for those I am not directly connected with, I remember these times and pray that others will listen to the spirit guiding, and that those hurting will draw closer to Him. Hope you enjoyed your trip!

I would like prayer for guidance regarding a decision I need to make about a ministry I THINK the Lord is callimg me to (to be more active in). I want it to be totally the Lord's will so I am praying for His wisdom and confirmation.
thank you so much. You are a huge blessing to me.
