the power of prayer & hope.

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints" -Ephesians 6:18

"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express" -Romans 8:26

hope is in his unfailing love," -Psalm 33:18

  1. Believing and praying with you " Where two or more agree the Lord is there." Just think how many angels are put to flight each day on Caleb's behalf, and for that matter yours! Psl. 62 " God is my refuge and strength a very present help in times of trouble......." Probably my most favorite chapter - What can man /circumstances do to us???? If God is for us, then who can be against us ( no one of real consiquence ) .... God is faithful, we can count on that ! The recipe for life may have some stuff we don't care for in it, BUT when you put it all together it taste great and is good for us - No one wants to eat horse radish or sourkraut straight from the jar~ but it is what makes a Rueben so good. I was singing this song yesterday " I believe your my healer, I believe your my portion, you are all I need ...." My portion, the part of my life that keeps me, sustains me and gives me true (excellence in)life.Continued prayers for you Kathleen, and that wonderful man of yours !!!!! ((())) Reenie :)
