Prayer Request

I've got so much to share and tell, but I'm going to have to put it on hold a little longer and instead ask for your prayers.

My grandmother, or Mama Jo as we fondly call her, has been ill for the last 3-4 weeks with a bad virus. She finished the anti-viral she was taking on Tuesday. However, in the last 24 hours she seems to have taken a turn for the worse. Her fever is back with a multitude of other symptoms that lead us to believe she might be dying. We often joke she is like a cat with 9 lives because she has survived numerous heart attacks, surgeries and procedures that were often life-threatening and risky---and although there may still be another life within her, it's quite possible that God is calling her home this time.

So, please pray wisdom and strength for my aunt and uncle who are caring for her. Of course, we want complete healing for her body, but if this is her time we pray that God would take her home quickly and quietly.

Thanks.

You got it! We are going through a very similar situation with my grandmother and will add Mama Jo to our prayer times when we pray for Grandma Rose. What a blessing that we've had this many years with our grandmothers - I never knew how rare that was until recently. Praying. . .

Absolutely. I'll pass it along to others.
