If you follow me on Twitter you have probably seen this already, but for those who haven’t…
Joanne is a stranger to me, but a sister in Christ. I have been to her blog before and have loved her heart as a mother, homeschooler, and just an all-around neat lady. She is the kind of woman you would want to hang with in the kitchen and enjoy coffee with. Yesterday I had a rush of tweets come in and spend a good part of the day in prayer for her and today I am doing the same.
This woman needs our prayer, Sundays. She had a stroke yesterday and her daughter found her unresponsive on the treadmill, suffering from a seizure. She has just had surgery to remove a part of her skull to help with the swelling but there is significant trauma to her brain and her husband and daughters (one named Audrey:)) are waiting and praying that she will wake up.
If I didn’t believe in the power of prayer, i wouldn’t ask it of you. Between the floods in Queensland, the shootings in Arizona, and every other heart-breaking story I am processing with a heavy heart, I am reminded that we serve a great God Who we can’t always understand but we can ALWAYS trust.
I am speechless with hope in Him, on my knees in prayer for the brokenness we face.
Will you join me, please?
Feel free to leave prayer requests in the comments, and include links if you would like. Let’s take some time today to close our computers and bow low in prayer together. I have always loved Psalm 27 for times of confusion…
