Prayers and Praises

"Devote yourself to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart."
Colossians 4:2

I like to post prayer requests and praises on Thursdays....and we have much to be thankful for this week...We are praising God that Karl is doing so well after his TBI from a motorcycle accident....we are praising God that Ravenna has so far tested negative for rare blood disorders....we are praising God for a financial gift that came today......and for beautiful weather and open windows and doors to let the fresh air in.  We give thanks for Joel coming out of a bad relapse, and we give thanks that my energy is returning!  I am praising God that I could cook a few meals, walk for a few minutes each day, and help Joel out this past week.  Oh, and thank you God for visits with our youngest daughter, and our middle daughter and her family.  Nothing like hugging grandkids to brighten our days!

We give thanks Lord for your gift of prayer and the power that is released in Your name when we pray. Thank you Jesus for the many blessings you bestow on us. Thank you Jesus for answering our prayers. Thank you Jesus for walking with us each and every day.

Lord Jesus, we lift up to you your children, your faithful servants. We ask that you reach out and touch each one of them and bring healing into their lives. You are a God of miracles, a God of healing, our Jehovah Jehri ~ our provider, our Jehovah Rapha~ our Lord of healing. We ask that you move mountains on behalf of them and grant each one healing, wholeness and peace.

In Jesus name
Amen
