Latest Prayer Request…

My cousin Tiffany sends the following message about her granny (Teresa’s mom):

Please pray for granny and her boyfriend Jack Stone’s family, as Jack passed away yesterday. Granny is going through a lot right now and we desire your prayers for her even more now. Jack was another grandpa to me and was the sweetest 87 year old man you’d ever meet.

…He was born again and granny knows that she’ll see him again. We praise God for the time we had with Jack and for the impact he made on our lives.

Like Granny told me this morning…”God is good, all the time.”

Thank you all so much for praying!!!!

In Our Daily Bread for yesterday (Fri., Aug. 24th–the same day I got Tiffany’s prayer request) the title for the devotional is “God Weeps With Us.” Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” The writer says, “I agree with scholars who render [the word precious to mean] costly….Jesus showed us that God shares the sorrow and pain of the bereaved, and that the death of the humblest believer causes His heart great pain.”–Herb Vander Lugt

When we are happy or when we are blue,

God is aware of whatever we do;

All of our sorrows He takes as His own–

And He will never leave us alone. –Hess
