Prayers Needed--Again!!

Hello Blogging Family,



I saw the doctor this morning about my over-the-weekend episodes. My blood pressure is high, even on medication, and I have developed a migraine related to my lack of hormones from my April surgery. That, coupled with an extreme stress overload "may" have caused me to have a "minor" stroke (also known as a TIA) over the weekend, possibly yesterday during church.



He wants to do an MRI of my head, but we cannot afford one due to medical bills we still owe and me being unemployed. SO, since he really can't do anything except say 'yup, you had a stroke all right!', we're just going with medication for the migraine and nausea for today.



Please pray for our family in three areas:



1) Finances

2) My health/stress load

3) My husband will be put on staff at our church full time as pastor. There are no such things as part time pastors, but he is classified as 'bi-vocational' as our church can not meet all of our financial needs. But my God works miracles, and I'm asking His people to PRAY.



Thanks in advance, and mucho hugs!!

Happy Reading!

Deena

Deena, I will be lifting you up in prayer! Praying God will open doors up for your husband as a pastor. I pray the Lord will provide financially that you'll be covered medically. I also pray God will bring you His peace!

Blessings,
Mimi B (not M.C.)

Praying Deena! Oh Father! Lead Deena to your green pastures of peace and calm. Keep her stress levels down. Take her to your still waters. Provide for her family financially! In Jesus name!

How's your eye doing honey? We're still praying here, every night.

Thanks for your prayers for my PPD.

Deena, I pray that God heals you! I also am praying for your finances and hubby! We serve a big God! "Be anxious for nothing but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God" Phil. 4:6. God Bless!

Praying God will give you peace and comfort and provide abundantly for your needs. You are such a blessing Deena! "How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings." Ps. 36:7
