Prayer Request Update - 1/17/10 - 10:53pm

Thank you Patrick for the wonderful lesson today from Daniel.  "Lord use me for your glory!"  We need to ask ourselves this daily and look carefully...there's always something we can do for the Lord or someone we can help.  Remember also that God is in control and there are NO "do-overs".

And thanks also to Paul Vinson and his story about his Uncle Marty.  We all need to remember to live each day with "A Clean Conscience and Holy Living"!

We had 38 youth group members and sponsors away today at WinterFest in Arlington.  We are so blessed to have 2 that were baptized while there.  Jaidelle Ray and Kassandra Miller are our new sisters in Christ.

Please keep these in your prayers:
  • All the victims of the Haiti earthquake.  Please pray for the safety of everyone involved.  We will have a special contribution in the coming weeks.
  • Phyllis Giguere has an appointment, on Tuesday, with a scoliosis specialist at Baylor/Plano.
  • Debra Usry asked for prayers for her grandson Lucas Simpson.
  • Sherry Welch will go back to Dallas for appointment with cataract spcialist this next week.
  • David Nelson (Charlotte Groom's brother) has a spot on his lung and will be having a biopsy.
  • Dinah Border's friend, Tyler Graham, is in the USMC and has been told he will be going to either Haiti or Afghanistan this week.
  • Louise McMillan (my Mommy) is in the nursing home in Cooper, they have an awful virus that is going around over there.  It's so bad, they've asked us family members not to visit until they can get it under control.
  • Vickie Vinson's step-dad, Norman Godfrey, was notified this week that his sister, Penny King, had died suddenly.  Penny's son, Kenny King, was the one that found his Mom, he has since attempted suicide and is now in the hospital in South Carolina where they lived.
  • Sandra Leath and Hazel Hicks both continue to be in PRMC/South
  • Charlie Parkman still can only have limited visitors while he is in DuBuis on the North Campus.
  • Please continue to remember our sisters, June Preston & Dolores Parker.  These 2 sweet ladies are dealing with cancer.
  • It was great to see sweet little Payden Daniels at church this morning.  Such a blessed little boy...he's had such a rough time of it in the last few months.
