My Prayer....

May 5, 2009
"Jesus carried Daddy home today at 2:42 pm."
Roger Rigney- beloved husband, father and grandfather of our friends. Please keep his family and our friends in your prayers.

I took the afternoon off today. It has been a busy couple of weeks and I needed the rest.

As I sat trying to decide whether I wanted to watch Grey's Anatomy or America's Next Top Model or House on-line, I received an e-mail from my friend's father's website journal. Amy's dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 carcinoid cancer in April 1995 and is now in the hospital in Indianna. As I type this e-mail, our friends are leaving their vacation with their 16-month little boy to be with her dad during this time. Instead of watching a silly show or a silly three shows, I was convicted that I better start pryaing. I love my friends and my heart hurts for them. I ask that you will follow their site and flood the heavens with prayers on their behalf. If you want more information, here is the e-mail I received:
"Dear Friends and Family,

I am really sorry to hear about your friends father. Cancer is an insidious horrible disease that has to be wiped out. I really believe that we will find a cure one day. Many prayers to your friends family.
