The Power of Your Prayers

In the recent loss of my mother-in-law, many who visit here have offered their prayers for me and my wife. I must report, your prayers were answered. In spite of the loss, we are positive and encouraged. I know that this wouldn't be the case without divine intervention. And that intervention may not have happened without the intercession of so many friends. Thank you.

When I say "so many friends" it goes beyond the Internet. Our church family and those who know us outside of the church, have been in prayer for our situation. I'm so terribly humbled to acknowledge the wonderful feelings we share as a result of every one's prayers. I've never been on the receiving end...normally on the giving end. How nice it is to see it the other way around.

This blog is about the miraculous healing power of the Holy Spirit. I give testimony right now to that healing and miracle in our situation. Without prayer, it would be a desolate and draining time. With prayer (for us) it is a time of gratitude. At the risk of being terribly redundant...thank you.

Amen, Marty. God heals and answers prayers many times in unexpected ways - and in ways we simply cannot understand. We are continuing to pray for you guys.

Art, All, I'm so humbled.
Thanks for the continued prayers. It's strangely difficult, but refreshingly different. One day at a time. That's how we're taking it.
Thanks!
