IT'S PRAY DAY, BUT IF YOU DON'T PRAY, PLEASE STAY
Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
We need to do some serious praying. If you don't pray, then please send positive thoughts or healthy visualizations to these dear people.
I'm not listing them in order of importance. Everyone is equal.
First, Beth at Day by Day With Beth Marie needs us. Beth is so nice that I have no idea why she tolerates a weirdo like me. Beth had cancer. She got better. Now the cancer is back, and her family has had some losses.
Please pray with me for this lovely woman. It wouldn't hurt to visit her blog and leave words of encouragement, too. *HINT*
Second, my friend Carol has a daughter named Dee dee, who is my twin from another mother (we were born one day apart the same year). Dee dee had cancer. She was cancer free for three years. The cancer is back.
Please pray with me for my twin.
Third, my friend whose husband died (Jackie) is already back at work. Thanks to your suggestions and the generosity of the Wooters man, things are looking up for her financially. Emotionally I know it's going to be tough for a long time.
Please pray with me for Jackie.
Finally, this is so piddly that I kind of hate to ask, but I've needed a regular job for a long time. I love editing, but I don't get enough of it to help me feel secure financially. If I get a job, I will still edit for you if you want me. I'm applying for a job at a business with whom I have an association. If they don't hire me, I'll feel embarrassed every time I go in there, but I have to take a chance.
Please pray for me that I'll be brave and that the bravery will lead to a job.
Now here's the plan. Whatever you are doing today at noon, six p.m., and ten p.m. Eastern time (or as many of those times as possible), please drop what you're doing and pray with me for five minutes. I want us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. You can pray other times, too, but I really want God to notice these prayer requests. Remember that noon EDT is eleven Central Time, ten Mountain Time, and nine Pacific time. Those of you who live in other countries will have to figure out the time for yourselves.
Don't even give me any crap about not believing in God because you have to believe in something. Ask that universal being or creator to help all these people, or send healing light and uplifting vibes.
Thank you for your help. I know I'm a little bossy, but sometimes I have to be authoritative. I believe in the power of prayer, although it doesn't mean I always get what I want. God is a lot smarter than I am.
Infinities of love,
