Many people know what it's like to lose a loved one, but few expect for it to happen so early in life. This last year, my best friend, who attended Liberty University, was shot and killed. I was shocked and I just stood there and wept. While we hadn't seen each other in awhile, we were like brothers and had always been there for each other through the highs and lows of life. First of all I would like to thank all the JBU students and faculty who surrounded me with prayers, hugs and words of encouragement. As I reflect over this last year, I want to provide hope to those who are grieving and tell them that it gets better and that I'm praying for you. This quote stood out to me and I hope that those who are going through grief right now will find hope from it, "Grief never ends... But it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith... It is the price of love." I also ask that you would pray for strength for my friends family and myself this week as they look back on his memory.
Thank you for praying for my health. I have another request. My ex-husband is causing me to have to take him back to court. Please keep me in your prayers, that justice will be done and that I have the strength to carry this through. Only God can bring me justice in this situation. Thank you.
My dad has been caring for my mom. It's hard for her to get around without pain because Medicaid won't cover the surgery she needs. For 20 years my mom fed hundreds for free on Thanksgiving and Christmas and never turned a hungry person away. Now she needs help because we can't raise the money needed for her surgery. The Lord made a way for a wheelchair ramp to be built for her. We just recently got bad news about our dad, that he has cancer. So please pray for healing and a financial blessing. Thank you.
I want to thank all the people who have been praying for my son and me. I have been getting more work, and have a few people to help in getting my son to school. My son is having a minor surgery in early December, but will need to be out of school for ten days. This also means I'm going to miss a lot of work. I have had a tentative offer from someone who said they could watch him for me, so I wouldn't have to miss so much work. I need to pray about it. I can't afford to pay anybody to watch my child for 7-8 hours. I don't really know what to do. Missing so much work, though, will make the month of January extremely tight, and I'm finally getting caught up on my bills.
I really need lots of prayer. I used to be a strong Christian, and now everything just seems to be overloading me...bills, Christmas, medical bills, daughter's birthday. I just want to have joy again in the Lord. I'm so miserable that sometimes I suffer with depression, fear, anxiety, and physical problems. I'm weak and need a lot of prayer.
