Spiritual Sundays-

Hello Friends. Hubby and I are just finishing up our vacation and I was thinking about what I could share this weekend. We enjoyed our vacation so much and we didn't go very far either. We just enjoyed being together. The weather for the most part cooperated and we were able to get to the beach a lot, which we truly enjoy. We like to find a quiet spot where we can talk, pray, or just go for a nice walk. We enjoy the solitude there.

While on vacation, I have been burdened somewhat with a few prayer requests so I thought I would share them with you.....

As you all know, my mother has gotten home from the hospital but she is not recuperating as well as she ought to. She will be eighty years old in a couple week's time, and I would like to see her enjoy her birthday; perhaps even enjoy a piece of birthday cake! She needs to regain her strength and develop an appetite. She is constantly nauseated at this point.

My cousin's husband Jim, was just diagnosed with a brain tumor/tumors and they have given him only months to live; that is with chemo/radiation treatment! My heart is so burdened for them. They need our prayers for strength and the hard time ahead of them. I pray the Lord would have His will done concerning them.

Then there is Amy who is also fighting cancer. She is the daughter of Debbie at There's An Angel On My Front Porch
Amy is in hospital right now and is having a great deal of difficulty breathing and she is in an extremely weakened condition. She is only a young lady and her family has asked for prayer on Amy's behalf.

We in the Christian community believe in the power of prayer and I would like to ask each one of you to pray for these people.

I believe PRAYER CHANGES THINGS. There is no communication in the world better than the power of prayer! "The prayer of a righteous man/woman is powerful and effective." - James 5:16


Thank you to those of you who would pray on behalf of these folks. Please check out Spiritual Sundays by clicking on the link or the Spiritual Sundays button on my sidebar. The Lord bless each one of you and make you a blessing!


  1. Hi Sandi. I'm glad you and your hubby had such a nice vacation. Sounds like a nice relaxing time of enjoying each other.
    I'm sorry your mother isn't doing so well. I will pray for her and your cousin's husband. I've been praying for Amy and will continue to pray. Thank you for sharing these concerns with us.

  2. I will be lifting all of these needs up in my prayers.

  3. I'm hopeful that your mom will be able to enjoy her special birthday; I prayed for her today. Prayer for Jim reminds me to pray again for my brother, who has cancer. I've been praying for Amy.

  4. Sandi:
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for requesting prayer for Jim and sister Doris. By requesting it has lifted the burden from my own heart. My daughter and Jim will greatly appreciate when I tell them....A thankful heart.....Auntie

  5. Isn't vacation fun when you get to spend it with a love one? It doesn't matter if you travel or just stay at home. The time spent with each other is more than enough.

    Yes Sandi, I too believe in prayers and that eventhough there are many people who have their own prayer, GOd knows them all and hears them all. He is a great one!


    (I was visiting Pink Saturday but have to stop by this new post too. You know, if every sidewalk have these lovely flowers planted, it would be a much joy to walk :-) Oh, and I like the candies on the table during the wedding too!)

  6. Sandi,
    I have posted about prayer for Amy too. I am sorry that your mother is not doing well, I will pray for her.

    Blessings, Karen

  7. I will add all these dear ones to my prayer list.

  8. That's what's neat when the Lord had made all of us here blogging to gather and be able to pray. Standing with you in prayers for these precious people. God bless you and that's great that you had a wonderful, restful time of being together with your hubby and with the Lord.

  9. I will continue to pray for your mom and Amy, I will pray for Jim as well. The power of prayer what a blessing.

  10. Good morning Sandi, I'm glad to hear you and hubby had a nice vacation. Always nice to get away and relax.
    I'm so sorry to hear your mother isn't doing too well. I'll be praying for her and your cousin's husband. Amy is always in my prayers as well as her extended family. Many many hugs ~lynne~

  11. I will join with the others in prayer.

  12. Hi, Sandi:
    I hope your mom gets better in the recouperating process so she can enjoy her birthday celebration. Prayer works, yes!

  13. Sandi,
    I'm so sorry your Mom is not doing as well as you had hoped - may she recover even if slowly but surely!
    Glad you and your hubby had a wonderful vacation, such a restful way to spend time together.
    Yes, prayer is very powerful and does WORK!


  14. i will also include your mother in my prayers. im very close to my own mother so i know how anxious and worried you must be. take care always.

  15. Sandi, so sorry to hear about your mom...having an 80th birthday should come with a big celebration, and I am praying that she greets it in excellent health. Also praying for Jim and his family, that they will feel the presence of the Lord as they walk through this fire. I've been praying and continue to pray for Amy... Prayer is powerful and I'm so glad you shared your burdens with us. I hope you can rest more easily knowing you have an army of prayer warriors on your side of the battlefield! Mary

  16. Hi Sandi, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog! And thank you for all the prayer and the post. I just read up on the story of the school principal in Florida and the athletic director. We all need to pray about what is happening to our freedom. But, what they don't know is that they really can't stop us from praying. Thanks again!


I am delighted to have you visit me and I read every comment. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you all as there are so many of you lovely bloggy friends now. I will visit as much as possible. I wish you a day filled with JOY! ~ Sandi
