Please pray for Emily

My friend, Peggy, has just started a new meme on Monday called "Mission 4 Monday".

The purpose of MISSION 4 MONDAY is to share YOUR MISSION each week.

I am so thankful that I can participate in Mission 4 Monday. I posted my first Mission 4 Monday yesterday entitled "Trust during rough times".

While visiting Mission 4 Monday blogs, I came across Liza's Eyeview. Liza shared about her friend Emily who was hit by car last Wednesday afternoon. She was in a crosswalk, almost on the sidewalk, when a car suddenly struck her causing her to "fly" 40 to 45 feet unconscious and land on a curb!Emily suffered multiple fractures. When she first arrived at the emergency room, the initial prognosis was dim. Her case was called "severe".

I would like to request that we keep Emily and her family in prayers during this trying time. May our gracious Lord Jesus Christ preserve and restore Emily according to His mercies and grace. May He grant the Doctors and other medical professionals much wisdom to treat Emily. May our good Lord also comfort Emily's family and friends as they commit her to Him and look to Him together for Emily's preservation and restoration. God knows what is best for Emily. He is working all things for His glory, her good and the good of His beloved people even in such a time as this. May we unite our hearts in prayers and bring this family before our Heavenly Father's throne of grace as often as we can.

Liza has kindly developed a new blog for Emily called
Praying For Emily". Do visit this blog for latest update and send your encouragements to this family, if you can. They need as much support as possible in this crucial time. May God continue to shower His love, mercies and comfort upon Emily, her family and friends.

Thank God for the privilege that we can pray for one another through all the changing scenes in life, knowing that God loves us and He will work His best for us. With God all things are possible. He is able to heal and restore us, or give us sufficient grace to sustain us in the afflictions and trials in life. May His will be done as we are fully assured that His will is always the best.

Thank you for praying for Emily and her family and friends!

Thanks for dropping by. Take care and have a blessed day!

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3

Blessings Nancie... I'm glad that you met Liza and are sharing in the prayer requests needed for Emily and her family! Reaching out and making others aware so that they also can stand in one accord in prayer support is another reason, you are such a blessing! May more people begin to pray and encourage others taking more seriously as you do reaching out with the love of Jesus! Thank you for giving God's phone number Jeremiah 3:33! We all need to call on behalf of Emily and her family! Love your heart for God and His precious family! :) May God pour back into you abundantly as you pour out with love and encouragement to so many! Thanks!
