UPDATE: Toben as asked via Twitter that we specifically pray that the swelling decrease. Joanne’s brain needs to stop swelling, decrease in swelling and pressure. SO… the Lord has impressed upon several of Joanne’s friends to take tomorrow (and today if you wish) to corporately fast and pray on her behalf. The fast will end after corporate prayer time tomorrow night, or whenever the Lord leads you to end your fast for Joanne. If you are joining us.. please leave a comment below. (We’d love it) Also, there is some great information on how to fast safely from IHOP here: Fasting & Praying for Joanne
Morning friends. I am rejoicing in the opportunity to corporately worship and hear God’s Word today. He’s so precious and gracious to us. I pray that your heart is tendered to the body of Christ this morning and that no matter where you are.. you are celebrating the Sabbath. Praying that you are celebrating the kind of God we serve.
We are desperate for your prayers over our sweet Joanne today. Toben updated last night and asked for us to pray for a miracle TODAY. I know we have been praying for a miracle, but let’s pray for the BIG stuff today. Let’s be mindful all day today to keep Joanne and her healing at the forefront of our hearts and minds, all the while being obedient to His will over our lives. Toben’s update is at Joanne’s blog: The Simple Wife There is also an update on Janna’s blog: Mustard Seeds and an amazing, vulnerable and blessed post from Kristen at: khphotography .
