Thursday

“Every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father” 

~Philippians 2:10-11~

 

Ladd Turner’s latest post on Dan Turner

UPDATE: Dan Turner is awake this morning! He tried to talk and communicate with a picture book this morning. All good stuff! He still tires very easily and rests often. Thank you all for your prayers and please continue! I’m so happy to see my big brother getting better. The UMMC staff is top notch in providing care and we have a big ole God that put all of the right people in the right places! Thank you, Lord!

The Turner family is experiencing the same virus many of us have had.  Pray they get better quickly and do not pass the virus on to Dan.

If you know of a family where several are sick, please share some soup, offer to pick up medicine, or do whatever is needed to help them through this time.

Prayers for former President of the United States of America…41st president…George H. W. Bush, who is now in ICU in a hospital in Houston…prayers for him, his family, and those medical personnel who are treating him!

Hunting for Souls

Pray for those who do not know Jesus as the one who died for their salvation.  Pray they will meet Him and take Him into their hearts.
