Well… my birthday has come and gone—and newsflash—I actually had a lovely day!! I am not sure why after years of having terrible melancholy on my birthday, this year, it was a sweet and enjoyable day. As I explained in the blog, titled, “The Beat goes on.”, since I can remember, I have felt terribly sad on my birthday, and I don’t know why. In fact, I just expect to feel badly—but this year although I expected to feel badly– I did not!!!, and I can only attribute this to the fact that I let you’all know I was feeling sad, and you’all prayed for me; you fought this spiritual battle with me, and for this, I am grateful, so, very, very grateful, and so is my family.
I must say, that you prayed for me before—when I wasn’t sleeping, and I shared that with you’all in my blog, “The Gift of Sleep, has been taken away.” and then in my blog, ” I am sleeping again, Thank you God!!,” I was able to tell you’all that I was indeed sleeping again— because you were praying for me.!!
Wow—who knew that this would be the benefit of writing this blog to me!! I thought I was just stepping out in faith and being obedient to what God was telling me to do—but God knew that He would also be using this blog in my life—to help me in fighting spiritual battles.
I hope you will share on my blog areas you need prayer, as I think this could be one of the most encouraging and transforming elements of this blog—all of us praying for each other.
I ask you to pray for my family and myself as we come up to one of the most difficult seasons of the year for us. We lost our beloved son, (and for my children—their brother), seven years ago this coming September 17th. Sean was hit by a vehicle while riding his bike on September 16th, and declared dead on the 17th.
This is a season with great pain and suffering, not just for me and my family, but for our entire nation–for many, many reasons. I am praying that our circumstances draw us to the Lover of our souls and that we find what we have all been thirsting and hungering after in Him. May we love one another as we are filled with His love. May our country be changed because of that love.
I found this video that gives examples of the transforming power of God. I found it to be so, so encouraging, and hope it encourages you as well.
We have so much to pray for and about. I encourage all of us to go before the throne of God to find help in our time of need. Let us set aside time everyday to humble ourselves before His Mighty Hand and pray!! And Let Us Be Encouraged!!

Thanks for the grand reminder of what we need to be doing. We change worlds if and only if we pray–and then He does the changing. I appreciate this.
