God, You are the healer of all, bring comfort to the fearful and grieving, today I would like to lift up the Lichtenberg family as they mourn the loss of Mary as well as the family of Nana of Seven as they deal with her loss.
Bring friendship to the forgotten; Lord, I lift up William who is having a difficult time with his recent break up. Lord, you know how our emotions can carry us away, help him to see the positives of the situation. Show him that there are others out there and one day he will find the one meant just for him.
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the Lord
Bring wholeness to those who are ill or in pain. I would like to lift up all those battling cancer. Especially my husband Sean, Nancy, and Pam's daughter's friend Brianna. (She is 15 with her second bout of cancer, they just got the news that the cancer is still there, she is starting chemo again.) Each are at various stages in their battles. Be with them as they fight this and those around them as well to give them all strength.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways,
Gracious in all His works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them
I lift up Cathie's prayers and I would also like to lift up Barbara and Christina. You know their needs better than we can. I lift them up to You to be cared for in your loving embrace. Give them the strength needed to face anything and everything that they need to over come.
Please be with those that are healing from surgeries. That can be a long road at times. Give them the strength they need for any physical therapy or the patience for bed rest.
I would like to lift up Jean as she is healing from surgery. Help her to heal quickly Lord as the Great Physician that you are.
I would like to add my niece to our prayers as she begins her own physical therapy. Help her to cope with the changes as she needs to throughout the ordeal.
I also lift up Christopher and Angela who are each facing medical issues of their own.
Now to You who are able to keep me from stumbling,
And to present me faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever. Amen
