I know I said I wasn't going to post again until after the first of the year but I have a very urgent prayer request I'd like to bring before all my prayer warriors.
My cousin, Tommy, who is in his early 50s, has been sick for about a week. At first, the doctor thought he might have had a sinus infection. However, he never responded to the antibiotics and only continued to worsen. On Christmas Eve, he was hospitalized after being diagnosed with the H1N1 (Swine) Flu. Since that time, his condition has continued to deteriorate and now he also has bilateral pneumonia. Today, he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and was placed on a ventilator to help with his breathing. He is in very critical condition.
Please pray for Tommy as he battles this very insidious illness. Please ask the Lord to give him all the strength and comfort he will need to make it through. I'd also like to ask that you pray for my Aunt Dorothy, Tommy's mom, who has lost her husband (cancer), her older son (automobile accident) and her daughter-in-law (cancer) - all within the last 2 years. Please ask the Lord to give her, and the rest of the family, all the strength, grace and comfort needed to make it through the coming days. AND, that special PEACE that passeth all understanding.
Thank you so much for your continued love and support.
