Lord, give me I pray:

A remembering heart for the things that have happened

An attentive heart to what I have heard

A forgiving heart for what has hurt

A grateful heart for what has blessed

A brave heart for what may be required

An open heart to all that may come

A trusting heart to go forth with You

A loving heart for You and all Your creation

A longing heart for the reconciliation of all things.

A willing heart to say “Yes” to what You will.

    I am joining all here in praying for peace, reconciliation and physical, emotional and spiritual healing. May the Holy Spirit draw us closer to Jesus each day and thereby draw us closer to each other regardless of differences. Thank you for this ministry.. It is a blessing to all who read.

  4. Remember in prayer,

    Lurkie Loo -I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed on Valentine’s day with inoperable Stage 4 glioblastoma (brain cancer). She is 44.

    Captain Kevin – My toes are thoroughly bruised. Sadly, I have a childhood friend who unfriended me on FB for my conservative views. This was after referring to me and some of my friends as scum of the earth along with other names I wouldn’t repeat here. I appealed on the basis of an almost lifelong friendship and that I not only respected him for holding well-reasoned views but that we had much more in common than not. He would have none of it. I grieve over a lost friendship as well as my part in the destruction.

    Captain Kevin – In addition to the above situation, I’m sicker right now than I have been in a long time. Strep, sinus infection, inflamed ear canal, and the pain that comes when the fibromyalgia flares up in response.

    surfer51 (david) Even though the oncologist tells me that I am “stage four” as far as he is concerned when speaking about the cancer.
    I have had a living hell going to all the places and getting all of the test and feeling like a pin cushion.
    I thought of you while at the cardiologist.
    I like you will live day to day remaining in a position of trust that all is well in God’s hands
    The western medical doctors are all pushing chemotherapy with no guarantees that I would live any longer as a result than I would without the treatment.
    My wife and I see a medical doctor who understands that there are other ways to go.
    Through a radical diet change and several natural protocols many have beat cancer without needing chemo.
    But the best treatment I have been blessed with is the prayers of the saints.
    i love that the Body of Christ is so responsive in support and prayer, what a great family to be in!

  7. Ephesians3:14-21 (KJV)

    14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

    15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

    21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
