Urgent Prayer Request


My dear friends, I have an urgent prayer request. My friend Gina, that I have been friends with for 23 years, whose dad was my preacher, until he went to be with the Lord several years ago, and who also was the preacher that married me and Eddie. Her home, that she and her husband have lived in for 20 years, went down in flames today. I praise God that her and Gary were not home, so they are both safe. But, my heart is breaking for them, they have lost everything. I cannot believe this happened, I am in total shock. But, I know God has a reason for everything, and He will take care of them, and show them much comfort. I am here Lord, show me what I need to do, use me to help them. I ask that all of you that would, please pray for them. I love, and appreciate you all. Thank you.

Lord Jesus, I thank You so much for Gina and Gary, and that You spared their lives in this fire. Thank You for Denise and her ability to spread the word so that we can uphold this precious couple in Your name. I pray, Father, that You would continue to be merciful and gracious to this family--that You would comfort them, and give them peace during this time of loss. Heal and protect their hearts, I pray. Surround them with others who can literally build them back up again. You are an amazing God. Thank You for Your tender mercies. In Jesus' name. Amen.

So sorry to hear of this loss. At the same time, I am so encouraged that they did have insurance.

Thanks for letting us know so we can pray for them.


Keep us posted!

Besides God to comfort them and strengthen them, to give them favor. For them to cling to Him & to each other during this. I am also praying that somehow, some way they end up in an improved condition when this is over, and not diminished! That might take time. But, that is what I want to see out of this.

Too completely thwart the devil!

You are a great friend, Denise!
