Prayers Requested...

I am typically not the kind of person who feels comfortable asking for others to pray for me or my family... But I am asking for your prayers now. My uncle Larry...whom I love so much, had a massive stroke last Thursday. My family is extremely close, so this is a very difficult time for everyone. If you even have one spare moment in your day, maybe you could just send a little prayer up for him and his recovery. He has a wife, two daughters and four young grandchildren who all love him so please be praying for all of them too.

I will be busy this next week or so and will be scarce...but I appreciate all of the love and support that all of the amazing friends I have met through this blog and my site have shown me these last couple of years.

Thank you!

Hi Alice,
I send prayers for your Uncle Larry and the entire family and a white candle lit for him burning.
And one of my favorite poems too~
Angels descending, bringing from above, Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

You also have my prayers for your uncle and your entire family. Don't ever hesitate to ask for prayers. Prayers en masse are a very powerful thing!

I believe in the power of prayer and you and your family are definitely in my thoughts and prayers during this tough time. My Mom always says that the Lord will not give us more than we can handle (although I know it's hard to believe that when we are going through those tough times).

oh, great god, be small enough to hear me now
there were times when i was crying
from the dark of daniel's den
and i have asked you once or twice
if you would part the sea again
but tonight i do not need a fiery pillar in the sky
just wanna know you're gonna hold me if i start to cry
oh, great god, be small enough to hear me now

oh, great god, be close enough to feel you now
there have been moments when i could not
face goliath on my own
and how could i forget we've marched around
our share of jerichos
but i will not be setting out a fleece for you tonight
just wanna know that everything will be alright
oh great god, be close enough to feel you now

all praise and all honor be
to the god of ancient mysteries
whose every sign and wonder turn the pages of our history
but tonight my heart is heavy
and i cannot keep from whispering this prayer
"are you there?"

and i know you could leave writing on the wall
thats just for me
or send wisdom while i'm sleeping,
like in soloman's sweet dreams
but i don't need the strength of samson
or a chariot in the end
just want to know that you still know how many hairs
are on my head
oh great god, be small enough to hear me now
