He asked for prayer Word Filled Wednesday

This is a sticky post. Word Filled Wednesday provided by Amy Dean is below.

We work in a ministry to teenagers. Specifically teenagers incarcerated in Texas.
Three weeks ago my husband began a five week program at a boys facility. It took us 4 years to get to present our program inside this facility.

In January my husband had knee replacement surgery. We knew almost immediately he had an infection in his knee. Because we no longer have health insurance his surgery was at the county hospital.

It has taken from February until today to get him scheduled to have the artificial knee removed.

He goes back into surgery tomorrow.

He asked for prayer for the boys.

I was with him tonight when he told the boys he wouldn't be able to be there tomorrow. It was hard on him. He promised them he would be back as soon as he can.

Please pray for him. Please pray for the boys and the volunteers that will continue the program in my husbands absence.

God is in control. God will take care of us. Please pray with us that he is glorified in all this and that God will reveal himself to them.

Please pray for the boys

What counts is your life. Is it green and blossoming? Because if it is deadwood it goes on the fire!

Luke 3:9


All I can say is ouch!!! lol what a tough one! We were burning some old “junk” left overs from building and there was this amazing blaze.. you could feel the heat all the way into the house (with the windows open).. it really made me think how much “heat” deadwood gives off… and how easily we can spend out life putting out those fires if we don’t clean clean up the mess, put it forward and give it to God. What deadwood is holding you back today? Give them to the ultimate firestarter.. not only will he burn the old, he’ll replace it with something better!

God Bless!
