Please Help Me Pray

Published by at 12:23 pm under Projects in General

My dear friend, Joan Fricker, of Joan’s Gardens has an urgent prayer request.  Please help me pray for her cousin, a young mother of three who just gave birth.  Her name is Mel Smith and she is in very critical condition.  I don’t know many of the details, it appears she has had complications from a normal birthing and there is massive hemorrhaging at the brain stem.  Please see Joan’s blog for further details.  Thank you so very much for your help in prayers.

      And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  James 5:15

I haven’t posted in quite some time, we are in the middle of home renovations and my house is upside down. I do have a few designs completed and am waiting to get my photography spot back.  Photographs of my designs are taken on a table next to a window in my bedroom.  We are replacing the bedroom windows with hurricane glass and the area is presently a big mess . . . LOL!  Hopefully it won’t be much longer.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend with your family!

    Thank you Jerri for letting us know. I am praying for her right now! I just returned from Arkansas because my mother is in the last stages of breast and bone cancer and I try to go as often as possible to help my Dad. He is her primary care giver. If you wouldn’t mind, please add them to your prayer list too: Betty and Clark Welch. They are on pray lists all over the world and it is such a blessing to them and our family. I will add Mel and her family to our church prayer list tomorrow too! God Bless!!
