Prayer Requests

Life isn't fair, is it?

I was so thankful to spend a week at the beach with my family. I know I am so blessed.

And then I hate opening up my email to read a lot of prayer requests involving a lot of hard things. It's hard to understand. It's not fair that anyone has to go through so much of this. And I think to myself how unfair it is that right now - I'm not the one going through something when I deserve it. I don't deserve to have two healthy children. That's not how it works. Things don't happen because of who the person is..........

I haven't had to face a lot of mountains but I've had to climb a few hills and I know the hope and peace and comfort that comes from having people pray for you. So will you join me in praying for these people below?

* A reader wrote me to ask for prayer for her friend Jessica who lives in WI.  Jessica is divorced and her ex-husband came to visit their 3 daughters last week and while he was with them - he killed all three (ages 5,8 and 11). I can't imagine what she must be going through. Please pray for her and for the friends of these little girls.

* This family has 22 month old twin boys, Griffin and Logan, and they recently learned both boys have a terminal illness. Unspeakable. Pray pray pray for these boys and their parents.

* Please pray for Whitney and Bryant. She is a few weeks away from having baby Henley. Henley has been diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Her bones are fractured and brittle. This could possibly be fatal. Please pray for a miracle.

* Pray for Rebecca and Jeremy Shryock. They have 3 little boys and their middle child Drew was just diagnosed with cancer.

* A young mom of 3 small kids was recently killed as she was out jogging one morning. Please pray for her family and the small town that is so shocked where she lives in KY.  They are having a walk/run in her honor if you live near by.

* Morgan, a 5 year old who has leukemia

Thank you for praying!
