This week Angie is transferring facilities, so we’re not going to be meeting up at Sparrow for our weekly prayer time. Please continue to pray at 8:00pm whether it be by yourself or with others. And we’ll let you know about group prayer times moving forward. Here are some current prayer requests:
- Boldly ask for a full recovery
- To give God the glory in all of this right now and through the rest of our lives
- For God to continue to instill in our hearts a desire to point to Him in all of this
- That we would trust in God’s love
- For strength to work through our fears and joys and all the blends of emotion we’re going through
- Continued healing for Angie
We often find ourselves without the words to pray, but take comfort in the fact that God asks us to come to Him with our requests; and when words fail, the Spirit is praying on our behalf.
Thank you for being family and friends who likewise are praying on our behalf over Angie and trusting in God’s sovereignty over this all.
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
We’re encouraging friends and family to take a few minutes each day at 8:00pm to lift up Angie in prayer. In addition to that, each Tuesday at 8:00pm we’re gathering together in the first floor cafe of Sparrow Hospital to pray with each other. If you can make it out, we’d love to have you join us, but either way, we’re incredibly thankful for the vast number of friends and family who are praying over Angie!
In addition to our previously posted prayer requests, here are a few specifics you can be praying for today:
- For no additional medical complications as Angie continues to heal
- For rest for the family
- For wisdom for Ryne in working through and deciding on next steps of recovery
- For Angie to be restored
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
This psalm has been really impactful for us, and Ryne has been reading it at Angie’s bedside.
Thank you all so much!
In the last four days, we’ve seen such an outpouring of love from friends, family, and the Church body. We’re so humbled by the generosity you’ve shown and continue to show through the GoFundMe page.
Thank you for continuing to lift up Angie and Ryne in prayer. The group that came out to Sparrow on Thursday was a great reminder of the strength and support of the Church body around us.
There is power in prayer. We may not have the words to pray, but God calls us to cast our sorrows on Him.
The Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Each day at 8:00pm we’re encouraging people to raise up Angie in prayer. Whether you stop in the Sparrow Hospital first floor lobby or set an alarm on your phone to remind you while you’re studying at home, God moves through prayer.
If you’re with friends, ask to stop in prayer for a few minutes. If you’re in the car, pause the music and pray for a minute. Let us not stop raising up our sister to God through prayer.
We’ll be posting prayer requests and scriptures of prayer regularly, so click here if you don’t know what to pray.
