Pray, pray, pray....

If you read my blog yesterday,
then you understand what I mean I say,
"Turn Your Mess Into Your Message"!!!
I spoke about Ms. Norma and Ms. Belinda.
I also want to include Mr. Sonny and Ms. Donna.
We have three precious people in our church who are battling different kinds of cancer.
Ms. Norma has colon cancer, Ms. Belinda breast cancer,
and Mr. Sonny has a brain tumor. At church last night, all three of them were there, just where I expected them to be. There are so many people who are healthy and had absolutely no excuse not to be there....but they chose to stay home, or go somewhere else. Please know that I'm not saying that to criticize anybody because I've done the same thing....but, I know that I need to be in church on Wednesday nights. I need the mid-week boost that it gives me to make it thru until we meet again on Sunday morning!!! These three precious individuals (and this includes Ms. Donna, too) chose to be at church with their church family. I want each of you to know that you have had such a HUGE impact on me. I just hope that if I am ever faced with something like you all are going thru that I can remember how you faced your problem with dignity and strength, and that I can do the same!!!!

1. Ms. Norma
Ms. Norma will be having surgery very soon for colon cancer.
I do want to share a praise, though. Tests have shown that the cancer is confined to her colon, so she will not be faced with having chemotherapy. Thank you, Lord!!!

2. Ms. Belinda
Ms. Belinda has breast cancer. She will be meeting with her doctor on Friday for a consultation as to what her options are.

3. Mr. Sonny (and Ms. Donna)
Mr. Sonny has a brain tumor and he and Ms. Donna are in a situation that needs all of us to say extra prayers for them.

4. Ms. Debra
Ms. Debra found out that she has cancer, in several different locations in her body. She also is having difficulty with her employment, insurance concerns, etc.

5. Ms. Thelma
Ms. Thelma has been sick for several weeks with bronchitis.
She seems to be on the mend, but she has an appointment with her doctor today.

6. Ms. Thelma's Dad
Please keep him in your prayers. He's facing some health problems.

7. Mr. Tommy
Mr. Tommy has several health concerns and needs our prayers.
Also...please pray that he will realize that he needs the Lord.
