Prayers Please.....

This has to be one of my favorite verses, because it reminds me that regardless of how things look , what I feel, what others say......God still is in control and He is looking out for me. EVEN when I don't have answers or understand.

That brings me to my prayer requests.....first is for my friend Jen. Her neighbor is 91 and dying. This lady and her son (and his partner) have become very close to my friend and her family. Not only are they dealing with her passing.....but with the family circus that has come with it. It is just so sad that things like this don't cause a family to pull together......but just become really ugly. Please prayer for my friend and her family as they step in to love their friends through this.

And another prayer request.....a woman that I had met through school was notified yesterday that her 14 year old daughter died of an asthma attack. It is just so sad...her daughter was skateboarding and fell off and in running back home she had an attack. Her inhaler didn't work and her father ran for the nebulizer, but she was gone by the time he got back. Understandably, this family is devastated. Please keep them in your prayers....the mother is carrying such guilt because she wasn't home at that time. It is just so heartbreaking.

Thank you for your prayers for my friends.


  1. Oh dear this is so sad. I will put your friends on my prayer list. What a sad world we live in!? God bless Lisa

  2. God Bless you Debbie,
    I shall say prayers for all of the family and friends; also for the family of the fourteen year girl. May God's love surround you all...

  3. From one end of life to the other. It is never easy to lose someone no matter their age. I do not understand families that fuss and fight when something like this is happening to a loved one. It just kills me when a family fights over "stuff". I don't know if this is what's happening with your friend's neighbor, but I've seen that happen so many times.
    I cannot imagine losing a child at any age! My heart goes out to your school friend and her family. I would probably feel guilty too, but of course, it isn't mom's fault. We can never understand these things.

  4. Thank you all for your sweet notes!!! My own husbands passing is still fresh enough in my mind that I get some of what these families are dealing with...so my heart goes out to them. But the loss of a child? I can't even go there!!!
    Thanks for your prayers and friendship!!!!

  5. Deb,
    I love you! Thank you for the prayer requests.
    Oh my, I shall be praying! Only 14 years old? I cannot even imagine (and pray I never have to) what the family is going through. Give them my prayers and a hug from me.



I love hearing your input, comments, ideas and encouragment.....thank you!!!
