Prayer Request


My dearest family and friends. I could use your prayers right now. We found out that our daughter's car needs to have the head gasket possibly replaced on her car and we are faced with an unexpected financial issue at this time, one week before Christmas.

We have faith in God and have sought Him in prayer hoping that things will work out better than expected at this time. We did have one auto dealer ask us to pay a deposit before he would start work on our car and couldn't guarantee it wouldn't cost more. This is something we hadn't counted on, especially right before Christmas.

My husband is literally a silent stress ball right now. You can tell he's holding it all inside but if you could pray for strength and peace for him right now and to let God help him let go of this situation. He's such a loving man who does his absolute best for us not to mention the fact that he's having to deal with leaving town in the midst of said crisis. You know you can only plan for some many unexpected things to happen and yet we don't quite know what we will do.

Your prayers for all of us would be greatly, deeply and very much appreciated at this time. Not to mention that my husband's dad is scheduled for heart surgery on Monday. Please pray that God will really show Himself to my husband at this time and I'll definitely keep you all posted.

We've had the same sort of situation so I know what you are feeling. Good to know that God cares about these kinds of things in our lives too.
I'll pray!

I'm praying. My car has been down for 2 months because it blew a head gasket. But, unfortunately, it is going to cost $3000 to replace the engine since the head gasket is just the beginning of what needs to be done. Hope it's something very simple for you. Also praying for your fil.

I sympathize, dear Kat. Our well went out right after Thanksgiving at the tune of 900. Last week I had to get four new tires, 400, so I feel for you and your hubby.
Praying with my heart...

Sorry to hear about the car. That happened to me and my car twice last year! Not a head gasket but on two separate occasions something broke on my car. First a strut and then a sway bar. Ugh. Have you checked out repairpal.com? It gives you estimates of what it should cost to have certain things on cars fixed.

"....it's a calling I have from God at this time in my life to reach out to people that are hurting and offer them hope in a dark world...."

God will hear your call now, as you have heard His call in the past.

You have reached out to people that are hurting, we will reach out to you now.

You offer people hope from God while we are in our dark worlds, we now offer you hope from God while you are in a dark place.

Praying for your continued strength as you and your family travel this very difficult road.

May God's peace and protection carry you through.

Patricia
