Thanks for praying!  God bless you for caring, praying, and writing to encourage.

I will pray for Farin.  It is very sad that kids can be so mean to each other.  The first time that kids were mean to me at school, I thought something must be wrong with me.  I hope someone will explain to her that nothing is wrong with her, but there are a lot of things wrong in the hearts of those who are unkind without provocation.

I hope that Farin's parents will be proactive, visit the school, and stay on top of this situation.  Treatment like this can be very damaging to a child, especially when it goes on and on.  Like Barney Fife said, "Nip it in the bud!"

As parents, we are called to guide, protect, and shelter our children (did you know that the word "shelter" never has ANY negative connotations in the bible?)  If Farin is going to be harmed at school (even if the abuse is only verbal abuse), I hope that her parents will consider removing her.  Her age (Cool is a wonderful age to homeschool.

I'll be praying!
3  Prayer / Prayer Requests / Update, need prayers for church on: September 05, 2007, 09:21:48 AM
Thanks, everyone who is praying.  If you've ever been through a church split, you know that this is one of the most painful things that a Christian can ever face!  Sadly, this is not the first time I've seen divisions like this in a church... but I didn't expect it at this church.  What had drawn me to it (15 years ago!) was the love and unity. 

My feeling is that because there is a huge neighborhood of 800 homes being built right now around our church, satan is attacking to keep us from being a presence in the community.  satan would like to see the church go down in flames, for the 800 families coming to our area to stay unreached for Christ, and for our church body to be so disillusioned that our members might, in effect, disengage themselves from the body of Christ.  I am rebuking satan with the words, "It is finished!"  Jesus' sacrifice was enough to cover all of this, and there is nothing new that satan can do to harm Jesus... Jesus has paid it all!

Please pray that God would rebuke satan sharply, that we would be humbled (soooo much pride right now!), that God would open our eyes to the demonic activity that is occurring, and that we would be looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, to keep us from squabbling and losing our focus.  Please pray for our elders, who are meeting tomorrow night, for their health (one of them is suffering greatly from IBS, sinus infections, and is diabetic).  Pray for our preacher, who has been viciously attacked and is a godly man with a godly wife, and some of the most godly children I've ever even met!  (Two are becoming preachers; one is just starting his ministry, and one is in bible college).

With my human eyes looking in on this situation, everything is so disturbing and upsetting that it is easy to feel hopeless, but God is so much greater than he that is within the world!  Please pray that God would do mighty things within the whole of the congregation, powerful things, soon.  There is so much at stake!  Thank you all, and God bless you!

Dear Mississippi,

Find comfort in God's Word! 
Psalm 27:10
Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.

When we don't feel closed to God, someone has moved, but it isn't God!   Grin

Some resources that have blessed me tremendously:
www.biblegateway.org (search for any bible verse!)

May these bless you as well!

We all go through periods when we are "on the mountain" or "in the valley."  Try to be consistent in your relationship with God... He is always consistent with us!  His love to you!

Please pray for my church.  There is a lot of division, back-biting, gossip, unforgiveness, pride, arrogance, and the list goes on!  Pray for a dramatic move of the Holy Spirit, that everyone would walk in step with the Spirit, that there would be healing and restoration, forgiveness and humility, and LOVE.

thanks so much for praying!
