Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Praying with the Hope of the Gospel

"Yes, and I will rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body . . . " {Philippians 1:18-20}

Our family has been humbled by the prayers of many saints and we give thanks for all who have partnered with us in proclaiming the goodness, faithfulness and unfailing love of God for the sake of the kingdom of God.

Tomorrow {August 27} I will be admitted to the hospital in Toronto at 11 am for more investigative testing to determine if open-heart surgery that has been scheduled for Friday {August 29} will be possible.

Our local church has set up a prayer clock for family and friends to be praying over the next few days in 15 minute intervals. If you are burdened to continue to join us in praying and you would like to commit to a time, you can find the times available here.

As we journey on, and you walk with us it is my prayer that you would turn your eyes toward Jesus and "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity."

"May I say to all I meet,
I am journeying towards the Lord’s given place,
come with me for your good." 
{Valley of Vision}

  2. Many prayers on your behalf, but knowing that Jesus is the one truly interceding for you (and He knows what to pray so much better than we do). What a promise, and we're praying that His peace is very real tonight and in the next few days! Much love from our home to yours! <3 Steph

  5. Dear Rebekah,
    I am praying for you. For the God of Mercy to show himself strong and the great Physician to guide every hand and eye that will minister to you. Praying for His love to fill you up and His peace to carry you. Many Blessings.~ Dawn

  6. Father, You are the Lord who heals (Ex. 15:26). We remember all of your benefits! You heal all our diseases. You heal the brokenhearted and bind up our wounds. I bind your word around Rebekah now and thank you for first - bringing her into the family of faith, for securing her in your Word and surrounding her with people who love her, that she will have HOPE. Heal Rebekah, Lord, and she will be healed (Jer. 17:14) - Amen
    Love to you, Prayers for you as you go through your week....and strength as your days are,

  7. Praying the surgery will be possible and God will use it to provide healing. God be with you, Rebekah.
