“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness,
the power and the glory,
the victory and the majesty;
for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;

Kathy Jo Thompson has been undergoing tests to determine her recent problem. So far, all the tests have come back with good results. Maybe…it was medication.
Maggie Lee Henson and her family need our continued prayers as she is brought out of the coma,

Dr.s believe the icp is as stable as it can get, are now beginning to peel off the layers of deep sedation she is under. Predicting it will take a week. Thx for your prayers as always and please continue!

Maggie Lee has been doing pretty well today. She seems to be adjusting to her body temperature coming up closer to normal and to the decrease in the aggressive treatment of her ICP. We remain confident in the care and minute-by-minute attention she is getting from the extraordinary staff of doctors and nurses. More than that, we remain confident in the One who gives them skill and wisdom for such a time as this.
How to pray right now:
- pray for to adjust to the “peeling back” of some of the layers of sedation
- pray in thanks for her good blood pressure today
- you can continue to pray for her brain pressure to be at a safe level
I’m still praying with Jairus, looking for Jesus to lay hands on our daughter for healing and life.

IN 1995, OUTSIDE THE Bulgarian Embassy in Washington, D.C., the son of a former embassy employee lost his life…
Walking with his friends, he was confronted by muggers. Apparently, however, his murder could have been avoided. The thieves only wanted his jacket, but he resisted and fought until one of the agitated criminals killed him.
I wonder what was so special about that jacket? What made it worth a human life to its owner–its age, design, brand, or material? Why didn’t he just give it up? It seems to have meant too much to him.
