Join Us in Prayer Wednesday morning

I'm pirating Nathan's blog for a short request since his readership is way more than mine.

A great suggestion was made to his last post about dedicating the hours of 7-10AM EDST tomorrow, Wednesday, June 11 to pray specifically for Tricia's tests and her health. I've asked my church to join in and now am asking you to be a part of a huge breath of prayer ascending to the throne of God on her behalf.

If you can and will find a quiet time during those three hours, please do so. I'm seeing to it that our church will be open for those who want to come here and pray as well, although your location isn't important.

Thanks for all the support you have given thus far. Their journey isn't over and you're needed again.

I just talked to our 11 little ones, and we made a chart :) I'll pray in the early morning before the chitlins get up, then Timothy will get up early and pray, then Elijah, then Rebekah ect... when we get to the littlest ones, we'll take turns praying with them. I don't think we'll cover the entire 3 hours, but we are excited to again bring Tricia before the Lord at this time!

Betsy said...

Nate – I have been following your family’s story via the blog since my friend Terri who attends your church in OBX shared it with me. I posted a prayer request on the Yahoo group Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cyberfamily tonight for Tricia. They are a praying group that I found after my Mom was diagnosed with Lymphoma last fall. She took Rituximab along with CHOP (her chemo cocktail) and found it to be quite manageable. You can find a lot of information about rituximab on the Yahoo group’s website - http://www.nhlcyberfamily.org/

Beverly said...

I will...on the way to work, when I get to the church on the hill with the cross high in the sky. I say a prayer each time I pass. Tomorrow will be for Tricia. Tonight will be too. From Tennessee.

Tomorrow, June 11th will be one month that my husband was killed. My family and I already know what pain and grief feels like. Please know that we will be praying for your sweet wife and that The Lord will strengthen you while you walk along side of her. I'd like to share with you the scripture that the Lord gave to me......Be still and know that I am God. :--)

The Smith's said...

The following was sent in an email to me and I thought that it was such an awesome message:
Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining Silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest so as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says: 'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.' She asked the silversmith if it was true that He had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. ;

The man answered that He not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, 'How do you know when the silver is fully refined?'
He smiled at her and answered, 'Oh, that's easy,'
'When I see my image in it.'

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.
