...Jasmine had a boy,not a girl......but the request is the same.Please also pray against the bad dreams about him.Thanks.Also,there is a possibility that Jibril may have autism.He is cetainly behind developmentally.Pleas pray that he is able to communicate,that he can hear and respond to God's messages to him,and he is able to be helped enough to be able to live a normal life.thanks.
Holly.....I'm sorry I failed to bring the request forward in regard to the dreams. I am still praying about them. Sorry to hear about the new concerns of Jabril, he will certainly be in my prayers concerning these new issues. And, lastly, I knew that Jasmine had a new son, Mason, but I thought maybe you were expressing wishful thinking when you wrote that in your above request. At least we have it all corrected now. Continuing to pray for all of your family.
Praying for requests.
Update on Luis surgery: June 9th he will be going to Port Charlotte for 3 days to have more testing and if all goes well 6 weeks from then he will be having the surgery around the middle of July.
What wonderful news to be praying for. Thank you for this update and you can be sure I'll be praying for Luis to be able to have his surgery. Also for travel prayers for you both.
I won't be going with him for the tests, he will take the car and keep it there for the 3 days...the surgery whether it will be in Tampa, small incision in the upper side of his abdomen above the ribs, minimal recuperation or in Port Charlotte, open heart which it will takehim much longer to recuperate as when he had the 4 bypasses in 1998, it took him 6 months.
I will say a prayer for all of you,I promise.
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: Ray found out yesterday afternoon that he may possibly need another heart by-pass. He will be admitted tomorrow morning to have an angiogram done and then they will decide if maybe a stint will be inserted or if he will need another bypass. He just had a triple by-pass done 15 months ago. I know his artories haven't clogged up again that fast. Please pray with us that he will not have to have the major surgery again.
Praying! standing on His Word!
Already praying,Jeanette,do not worry.Praying for everyone.
Jeanette,I am praying,and I am submitting this request to some online prayer chains as well.I know it is difficult to not worry,I overstand,l worry too.But Almighty wants us not to.Trust Him,ok,as I need to do.We are praying.Pray for all needs here.Hugs.
carefully listen to the lyrics:
Thank you for all of the prayers that you offered up for Ray. There is power in prayer and God answered them. We finally got word from the nurse in charge of Ray that he was back in his room from recovery, they put in 2 stints, and he is doing fine. They plan to keep him over night and if all goes well, he can come home tomorrow. We are thanking God that he did not have to have another by-pass. There are still a couple of unanswered questions and we are waiting for the doctor to return our call. Maybe after we talk to him things will make more sense. Thanks again to all of you.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS FAITHFULLNESS!!!
WE DID NOTHING,SERIOUSLY.WE COULD DO NOTHING,SO WE SPEAK TO THE ONE WHO CAN. LOVE YOU,GLAD HE IS OK.NO MORE STRESS,IT IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.
My daughter,Jasmine wrote this to Justice on FB.In response to the homeless article I posted here.
I know wt this is like. I lived it for most of my life. I will never have anything to do with church ever again in my life & all Christians will be approached with caution.
Even as a Christian at 14 I've felt uneasy around Christians and sensed extreme darkness in churches. Pastors made my heart feel at an unrest. I told myself it was Satan trying to turn me from the truth but at 17 I turned towards my convictions and reverted to Islam bringing happiness and light into my life. I found peace and light and every question I've ever had has been answered satisfactorily. I will never turn from the truth. Islam also taught me to forgive the Christians since it teaches us that they r our closest friends, and I will never forget to neither opress 'nor be oppressed. Islam gave me rights and freedom, happiness and light. Islam is the right path.
I am very encouraged by God answering our prayers for Ray.I hope He will answer these prayers for everyone else here.
Praying for Jasmine...
Holly.....this is truly sad. Unfortunately, our language seems to change with each passing generation. Believers and followers of Jesus Christ were first called Christians in Antioch. Over the years, the term Christian meant that you were not a Jew or Catholic. Today, it has another meaning entirely. I'm not sure what it means today but I know what it doesn't mean. It no longer means believers and followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. For example: Jehovah Witness claim they are Christian.......but they do not accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God. They do not want to be born again and heaven bound. They want to stay behind and hope to be one of the 144,000 who will inherit the earth and kingdom. Never mind the fact that the 144,000 will be decendents of the 12 tribes of Israel, (Jacob), members of the Hebrew nation and Jews by faith. There are other religions that also claim to be Christian that are NOT. So today we must remember that a child of God is not merely a Christian.......they MUST BE BORN AGAIN. John 3:3 "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Maybe if you totally delete the word Christian from any conversation with Jasmine, and insert the term born again, it may have a different impact on her. Actually, I agree with her concerning "so-called Christians" and the darkness in so many of our local churches. They are not preaching to Gospel of Salvation as they should be. They will be held accountable for this when they stand before the Lord, but that doesn't help Jasmine today. I do not agree with her in Islam though. Holly, all we can do is to continue to pray for her, and to pray for you, that God will give you the right words to say that may soften her heart. Without a receptive heart to receive the word, you are just speaking in the wind. Maybe you should just let her see by your example and your walk in the Lord and not push her away further by forcing this on her before she is ready. I will continue to pray that God will not harden her heart and that He will send the right person with His message on their lips to Jasmine before it is too late. When we are out of control, God is always in control.
I totally agree with Jeanette, the Holy Spirit is the only one that can turn a heart of stone to a heart of flesh that will receive, we must pray for the HS to soften her heart to receive the gospel.
Well,ALL of us better do some heavy duty praying then,because I do not even know where to begin.I am at fault,because I did not protect her.I poured my whole life into 3 individuals,and I feel like it did no good,it is devastating.PRAY HARD!

1 Thessalonians 5:17 "Pray without ceasing."
You know how I asked you to pray because Jibril has things wrong with him,,autism and things? There are 3 concerns that I have about this,I am asking you,please,to be in heavy duty prayer about this:
1.My first concern is the obvious one;that he will be able to function,and to live a normal life? PRAY THAT HE CAN,PLEASE.
2.The second one I have is;"can he comprehend/accept the message of salvation? REALLY,REALLY PRAY HARD ABOUT THIS ONE!
3.The man from India that I work for on sundays ,he told me that when a child has a disability,muslims see it as a curse,assuming the parent committed a sin.This child may have a ,um,"mysterious,unfortunate,accident",if you get my drift.PLEASE PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION,AND THAT OF THE FAMILY.
SORRY TO KEEP COMING HERE WITH MORE.bUT ONLY ALMIGHTY CAN HELP WITH CERTAIN THINGS,AND THE MORE PEOPLE TALKING TO hIM ABOUT IT,THE BETTER.THANKS.
Holly........Forget what that man on Sunday tells you. That is Satan creating doubt in the power of the Lord to handle things in His divine way. Just refuse to listen from now on. Tell him that you don't want to know because it is too upsetting. Next, you need to pound this into your memory and keep it there forever.........God will not punish Jibril or any other child for a lack of ability to understand. This child is covered by grace and will not be put out of the Lord's house as a result of any disability like that. The next thing you need to be assured of is that God, in His infinite wisdom, will give this child the kind of life that will bring blessing to those who love him. Jibril may be the instrument God uses to reach Jasmine or some other soul that comes in contact with him. God has a plan for that boys life and what ever that plan is, that is the way it will be. We must learn to accept what God puts before us and trust in Him to give us the strength to bear and endure it. God knows better than we do what is best for Jibril and for Jasmine, and we cannot dictate our desires to Him. We can only pray and ask that He comfort our hearts and prepare us for whatever our future holds. You know that I am standing in your corner with you and praying for all of your family as you have requested. I'm also praying that your faith will be strong enough to believe and trust in Him.
Well,it is HIS will that none would perish....So,pray for that,as well as for what you have said.It makes sense.Thank you for praying.
Update on Luis: He has been going through a lot of catherizations and angioplastics, found that 2 of the four bypasses were not working anymore, he had a complication on the last angioplastic and they could not stop the hemorraghing, now he is fine. This morning he is going for another procedure, instead of Wednesday he will probably stay till Saturday. We do not know whether he is still a candidate for the heart transpant of the Heartmate II yet, we will have to wait for all these testings and results to know after all the surgeons meet. Keep him in prayer as he drives back by himself and please keep me in prayer I have had a horrible headache all afternoon yesterday, went to bed with it and I am still very sore. Thank you all for your prayers, I covet them, love you, Ivy
Holly........You are correct, it IS the will of God that none should perish. But sometimes He takes drastic measures trying to reach some of us that ignore or reject His calling. There comes a time when He will give up and close the door to the heart of the disobedient who will not listen. I assure you that I am praying for the safety and salvation of each member of your family just as you have requested. Once we have reached the limits of our control, then we must turn it over to God who has full control and leave it in His hands to work out for us. So many times I have offered the prayers and tears of a broken-hearted mother for my own children, and with this last one it took 12 years, but my prayers were finally answered. Just never give up hope or faith.
Ivonne........Prayers for Luis and for you. Ray had a similiar situation, one of his bypass arteries failed, plus the one behind the heart that they didn't do was found to be all but closed. They put in 2 stents and all is working fine now, so far as we know. He will go in for a check-up tomorrow and see what the doctor has to say about him. I will also pray for travel mercies to bring Luis back home safely. Please keep us posted as you learn what is going on with him.
I am praying.I pray for ALL of you here.
URGENT PRAYER- THE AMBULANCE JUST TOKK LUIS TO THE HOSPITAL, BP 67/38 HIS SUGARS 190, HE HAS NOT BEEN THE SAME SINCE HE CAME BACK FROM PORT CHARLOTTE AND ALL THE TESTS AND ANGIOPLASTICS, ETC. I AM NOT FEELING WELL EITHER....

LUIS WENT BACK IN THE HOSPITAL YESTERDAY AT 5:30 P.M., ONE OF THE NEW MEDICATIONS PRESCRIBED WHILE AT PORT CHARLOTTE FOR TESTING PRIOR TO HIS HEART SURGERY COMING UP FOR THE NEW DEVICE FOR HIS HEART IS DROPPING HIS BLOOD PRESSURE WAY DOWN. YESTERDAY IT DROP TO 67/38 I HAD TO CALL THE PARAMEDICS AND THEY TOOK HIM TO THE HOSPITAL. I WON'T BE HERE AS MUCH UNTIL HE IS HOME AGAIN!!!
Ivonne.......We are elated to know that Luis made the trip to Port Charlotte and returned safely. We thank God for those answered prayers. I'm sorry to hear of these new developments though. We do know from much experience that God answers our prayers and we will be praying for Luis to become stable with his meds and his BP without it having any affect on his upcoming surgery. Please keep us posted on his condition.
His blood pressure continues to drop and he is very weak, please don't stop praying, love, Ivy
