For my sister-in-law and brother-in-law who live next door to us. We have become very close to them since the passing of my husband's parents.
My sister-in-law (who is also my youngest daughter's godmother) went into the hospital over two weeks ago w/ double pneumonia. Several medical issues have arisen and, after being home two days, she is back in w/ serious issues.
She is having to bear an incredible cross. It's incredibly painful and heavy. There's a very real possibility that in her pain and suffering she cannot utter a word of pray. I seriously doubt if I were in her place that I could do anything but plead for God's mercy.
This is where we can all step-in and be Simon of Cyrene to her. This is where the Body of Christ comes together in a very real, tangible way.
Those of us who can do something physical are trying to do so, yet there is still so little we can do. Please join with us in prayer.
All prayers are holy. All prayers are pure. All prayers help to remove the nails that sinners have pounded...and continue to pound... into the hands and feet of Christ.
We ask...we plead...we beg for His Almighty mercy. And we know He hears and will answer us.
