“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,

for the rights of all who are destitute.

Speak up and judge fairly;

defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

~Proverbs 31:8-9 (NIV)~

Families have needs.  In the last few days, three families have asked for prayer.  Today, I hope we will pray for struggling families. I’m thankful they recognize their need and know that prayer can help them meet any need.  I’m not even sure what all these needs are, but I know my God does.




Our friend, Buddy Waller, needs out prayers.  I’m so thankful we got to know him.  He has such a sweet, gentle spirit.




Others. like Smiley Conerly, Buddy Morris, and Bryan Tate, have had a series of ups and downs.  Pray for these three men and others in a similar situation.




I know doctors and other medical professionals don’t often get to tell their patients they are going backwards, but it happened to David Monday.  He was told he was getting better and better, the unexpected in the world of oncology.  David’s blood level was 11.4 Monday, the best it has been in five years, a while before we knew about his big health problems.  We give God, and the many who have prayed for David, all the credit.  We are thankful for each day and try to make the best of each one.




Pray for churches as decisions are being made about “regathering” of area churches.




Let’s continue to pray for our country.   We need peace, love, understanding, love,  caring, calm, concern for others, etc.  All of these are available through Jesus.




I hope you pray daily.  It can be so much more than a good habit.  May we all learn to turn to God more often.
