Please pray for our family. My father is dying from Alzheimers and its moving so very quickly. He had a lot of difficulty breathing again last night and mom thot it might be the end so we went over. He is still hanging on. We started morphine this morning to see if that helps him relax more with his breathing and it has helped some. So it looks like my next few days are probably going to be spent over there with only short bursts of sleep. I need grace and strength. Also we feel more responsibility with being the only medical people in the family so the others are depending on us to make decisions and keep them informed. Thanks for lifting us up to the Father!

We are starting our 4th day of deathbed watch. Tim's siblings have all come home since Fri. I. Am. So. Very. Weary. Why does it have to be so hard to die? I guess I am feeling quite rambly this early Sunday morning as I take my turn to sit at his bedside. Please pray that my preggo, tired mind and body can receive the needed grace and strength to continue the vigil. I am also the only daughter-in-law that's here since the rest are all at their respective homes taking care of families. Pray that he might be released from suffering today if its God's will.

Life is huge and overwhelming right now. We wish we were invisible......I just want to pack up and move away, far far away. I'm glad that I had no idea what life would be like 6 years after I got married.......because I just might have backed out. (No, we don't have marriage problems. Just family problems. Big.)

We sat up until am with a child who has discipline issues and did not get the issue resolved. Pray that I would have the strength and wisdom to deal with my child today. Also that I could show him I really do love him.

I finally went to the Dr this morning after a week of horrible coughing and 1.5 days of not being able to keep anything down. He said I have compressed pneumonia, but since I'm in my first trimester, he's hesitant to put me on an antibiotic. If I'm worse by friday, he will give me one.
I babysit an 8 month old 40+ hours a week, plus my own kids. I don't even almost have enough energy to keep up with all that. Please pray that I can start feeling better soon.

For the past three months I have been teaching a drama class w/i our Homeschool group. Tonight is Showtime!- we will be preforming the One Act in front of an audience of family and friends. Please pray for the teens in the skit- that their nerves do not get the best of them! I saw it last night at dress rehearsal, and I do not want it to take away from the show tonight. Pray for confidence, peace, and most of all, the ability to relax and have fun with it! The main actor has also been struggling with a sore throat, so pray his voice will be strong and well rested tonight.

Please pray for us/me/our family. My dear sweet gramma passed away this morning. I will miss her but glad she can go be with grampa and Jesus! I am just so very weary of funerals and yet so sad that now we can't go to Illinois for Amber's dad's funeral. It just feels like everyone I love and care for is dying around me!

Please breathe a prayer for me today. I had a phone call from someone this morning (at 4:30. What a way to wake up!) with a terrible onslaught of lies and accusations. For the most part I'm doing okay with accepting that it's lies and I don't have to defend myself, but the devil is trying hard to get that grip on me. When it's someone I'm not that close to, it's not as bad, but when it comes from someone who is directly involved with good friends of mine, it really makes it hard. I told my mom I don't know how I manage to get involved in everyone's drama. Sigh....

Please pray that we could find help. We are months behind on buildings. Not only builders but a secretary would be such a bonus....I know there is someone somewhere, but it is stressful to be so far behind and can't see the light from under it all. And I keep asking God to help me not get desperate.

I need prayers. Lately I have been feeling so ANGRY, and today is really bad! I think it is because of situations that are totally out of my control..... including my health, our finances, possibly having to move AGAIN, disobedient children, and a 3 year old who refuses to tell me when he has to go potty. I find myself yelling at the children and speaking unkindly to my husband. I feel like the only things I have control over is what we eat for supper and when I go to the bathroom! I know it's not that bad....it just feels 10 times worse. And I can't even blame it on PMS. I am angry at people with money who can buy anything they want, go on vacation every year....angry at ladies who can have as many babies as they want with little problem.....angry at my neighbors who I am supposed to be reaching out to but they drive me insane with their trashy yards and sloppy appearance (and have no desire to change).
I know that the truth is that I DO have control over my attitudes and the things I choose to dwell on. I know I have SO MUCH to be thankful for. I need to choose to be loving and thankful and take care of my family with a good attitude instead of feeling sorry for myself that I can't complete a thought without interuption. I really do love my children and am thankful for them. I need God's grace and power.

I think Aaron and Gina could use our prayers today! A.J. Peachy meats burned to the ground last night. It looks so devastating! This is Aaron's business (and his Dad's) (correct me if I'm wrong). This was a CUTE place in Belleville that I loved to visit. It was a bulk food store, deli, craft shop, and restaurant all in one. I can't believe it's gone! Pray for Gina and the family. (I don't remember Gina's pen name on here)

I came here to request prayer and discovered many other people are in the same shoes. Every corner we turn there is drama, pain, anger and unfairness. Honestly I will admit that it feels like satan is going to extra dramatic measures to distroy any happiness, love, peace, joy, or freedom we have left.

Let's keep praying for each other!

Please pray for my 12 yr. old son, Shannon. Today his social worker at the boys' camp called and said they took him to the doctor this morning. He had gotten a bite when they were on their canoe trip in Florida and it got infected. Found out he has staph infection. They are coming home tomorrow for the weekend, so he'll at least be at home, but it will also mean great care being taken as the stuff is very contagious.

I've been back in Canada for almost two weeks and am expecting Gabriel to get here on Monday. Please pray that he'll be able to fly without any problems (Iceland's volcano almost threw us for a loop), and most of all that this baby will WAIT to come until he can get here. Thank you...

Please pray for me. My five year old is going to have oral surgery tomorrow morning and I have lost a lot of sleep over it, and worried to no end! She is absolutely traumatized by needles. I don't know how they will put her to sleep but I keep thinking all the worst...what if she wakes up and cries for me and I am not there.....She needs quite a few caps and fillings and it could take several hours. Pray for calmness for her and also for myself...and pray that I can sleep, because I am sure I will need it. I am thankful that my husband is going along to support me....

Please, pray for me! I recently found out a friend of mine, J, is pregnant. Since I'm pg, too, she's been asking me for advice. She's not married; she said she wasn't even dating when she got pregnant, so there's no daddy involved. Her sister (who is also not married) just had a baby recently and that was/is a really messed up situation as well.
J was incredibly critical of her sis when she got pregnant; they are not even on speaking terms with each other. But now J is so angry, b/c this same sis isn't "there for her when she's pregnant". She needs love and somedays all I feel is frustration! Just pray that she can see Jesus thru me and that I say what He would want me to.
She says she is a Christian. She's not afraid at all to talk about her walk with Christ, but her actions don't even come close to matchng up.

Please pray for the physical safety of our family. We had to evict a renter and his family tonight.=( The guy is obviously on drugs and has paranoia. He trusts no one and went ballistic tonight when DH served him the notice. DH and the guy that went with him are pretty shook up and say they would not put anything past him. In this day and age information is readily available online as to address, children,ect. I am normally not shook up very easy but when DH brings boards home to board up the basement doors...(they don't lock properly) Also pray that we can be a witness for Christ in this all-sometimes it is so hard to know what to do!!

Pray for smooth travelling for us. We leave this afternoon for 3 weeks in Israel. We are enrolled to take a summer class at Jerusalem University College. This is the first time going to Isreal that we don't have a layover in Europe anywhere so it will be a straight 13 hour flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv. Looks kinda long for this preggo mama!! Pray for protection over our baby as well. I had both my doctors clear me for travel but I still know that things can go wrong and it would be so rough to be far away from home when they do. Thanks!
