Friday 9.19

In review, this has been a good week - Praise God.
I have been more worn out, super sleepy like in the first Trimester ... my conclusion is that Jeremy is growing. I have been listening to my body, when I feel that tiredness I either sit down and lounge or if possible sleep.

The other part of my week that has been good is through my reading ...
this morning I read 4 different "prescriptions"
John 12:46
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
prayer: Jesus, thank You that You are the light of the world. Because I walk with You, I will never have to live in darkness.

John 14:12-14
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things then these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name and I will do it.
prayer: Dear Lord, give me faith and power to pray for others in Your name and according to your leading, and see miraculous things happen in their lives because of your answers to those prayers.

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world give. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 15:16
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go bear fruit - fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.

Peace - Glory - Praise - Faith - Belief - Strength - Comfort .... all a direct result of prayer, walking with the Lord step by step daily.

Pray boldly in His name today, everyday.
Lord I pray for Jeremy's development. I pray for his heart, brain, ears, eyes, hands, feet, kidneys, liver, and continued growth. I pray for your healing in each area of his body. I pray for Aaron, for strength, insight and discernment. I pray for the Brookside Community that anything not of you would be taken away and discarded. I pray for my sister, who will be induced on Monday for continued good heath and the health of the new baby - we all look forward to meeting. I pray for my family, as they prepare for the new baby and feel sensitive to my emotions. I pray for my accountability partner, that she would continue to feel peace and your glory in her life. I pray for my Life Group, that any troubles or hurt they are experiencing will be handed over to you, that they may find peace in you. I pray for my volleyball teams - that they will continue to feel your love and strength as they build belief in themselves. I pray for the Prayer Warriors - continue to cover them in your love, hold them in your strong hands and provide a hedge of protection around each of them that they will witness your glory.
Lord, hear my petitions and my prayers that they may be pleasing to you and your will.
 In Your name, AMEN.

I love your prayers for your little boy. I never prayed for anyone more than I did for my little Rachel. During those months, every waking moment I had alone was dedicated to fervent prayers for her healing and that God would make her life count for His glory. I am praying the same thing for Jeremy. I am confident of this: that God has a plan for Jeremy's life; that just like all of us, He alone knows the number of days; and He is going to use Jeremy to point others to Christ.

I spent hours praying for Rachel, starting at her head and ending with her feet. Those were wonderful times of bonding with my baby girl during days that were often filled with uncertainty and emotional ups and downs.

I am praying the same for you and Aaron...
