  4. London says:

    For the lady year or so I’ve had intermittent issues with my eyes. One eye or the other will become painful and by the next day it is floured up and bright red.
    It hurts like someone socked me in the eye and lasts a couple days. The red goes away in about a week.
    I’ve gone to my eye fix who said it could be a number if things including hiires or environmental issues since I travel so much etc.
    he just didnt know and told me if it ever happens when I’m in town, to come right in.
    Of corse, the weekend I decide not to fly home, I have the worst case so far. Very painful, weepy and bothered by lights.
    I’m not sure where I can go here in this town to see an eye doctor on a Sunday, so I am just asking for prayer to get through till Monday when I can hopefully get in to see someone while its inflamed.
    Also, that they can figure out what is going on. this is no fun.

    Praying for grace for each who are in the midst of such struggles. For financial help, and for jobs. For wisdom.

    Praying that we are aware of the presence of God in our midst today. The reality of Him. Praying for church to minister today…for us to hear the Word in a way that not only inspires us, but changes us. The reality of our faith…that it richly and deeply grasps us today.

  7. Appreciate the prayers for Dennis.

    He was posting threats of suicide on Facebook again last night. Last message was 4 hours ago. I didn’t know till a little while ago.
    A friend called the Sheriff’s office in the county he lives in and the VA suicide hotline. I just called a deputy and verified that my friend was telling them the truth.
    The deputies, last I heard had knocked and gotten no answer and were considering forced entry into his house.
    Waiting to hear news.

  8. Michael says:


    May God have mercy…praying.

  10. erunner says:

    I’m so sorry about Dennis. Praying he’s okay.

  11. Well, he is ok.
    I honestly have no idea how to deal with this situation.
    He really does not seem to want to deal with it.
    But, instead he just hides it till he throws the next drunk.

    The Breastplate of St. Patrick

    I arise today
    Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
    Through belief in the Threeness,
    Through confession of the Oneness
    of the Creator of creation.

    I arise today
    Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
    Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
    Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
    Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

    I arise today
    Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
    In the obedience of angels,
    In the service of archangels,
    In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
    In the prayers of patriarchs,
    In the predictions of prophets,
    In the preaching of apostles,
    In the faith of confessors,
    In the innocence of holy virgins,
    In the deeds of righteous men.

    I arise today, through
    The strength of heaven,
    The light of the sun,
    The radiance of the moon,
    The splendor of fire,
    The speed of lightning,
    The swiftness of wind,
    The depth of the sea,
    The stability of the earth,
    The firmness of rock.

    I arise today, through
    God’s strength to pilot me,
    God’s might to uphold me,
    God’s wisdom to guide me,
    God’s eye to look before me,
    God’s ear to hear me,
    God’s word to speak for me,
    God’s hand to guard me,
    God’s shield to protect me,
    God’s host to save me
    From snares of devils,
    From temptation of vices,
    From everyone who shall wish me ill,
    afar and near.

    I summon today
    All these powers between me and those evils,
    Against every cruel and merciless power
    that may oppose my body and soul,
    Against incantations of false prophets,
    Against black laws of pagandom,
    Against false laws of heretics,
    Against craft of idolatry,
    Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
    Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul;
    Christ to shield me today
    Against poison, against burning,
    Against drowning, against wounding,
    So that there may come to me an abundance of reward.

    Christ with me,
    Christ before me,
    Christ behind me,
    Christ in me,
    Christ beneath me,
    Christ above me,
    Christ on my right,
    Christ on my left,
    Christ when I lie down,
    Christ when I sit down,
    Christ when I arise,
    Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
    Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
    Christ in every eye that sees me,
    Christ in every ear that hears me.

    I arise today
    Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
    Through belief in the Threeness,
    Through confession of the Oneness
    of the Creator of creation.

  13. Just prayed through the list.
    May God be merciful to all in His bounty.

    Derek…so sorry to hear this, praying for your friend. Praying for wisdom for you as well.

    Praying through the St Patrick’s prayer with the kids today, and talking it through.

  15. London says:

    My eye is not painful today. Still bright red but not hurting is a big deal.
    Thanks for prayers.

  16. sarahkwolfe says:

    Hope the drs can see you today, London…and that there are enough of the effects for them to be able to figure something out.

    I had a student pass out suddenly in my classroom this afternoon. Despite the fact that she has a heart condition and history of heart surgery, I am very thankful to discover this evening that she “only” had a ruptured ovarian cyst. I spoke with her mom a short time ago and we are all relieved and thankful beyond words. She’ll likely have an extended Spring Break week. 😉

  18. Sarah says:

    Wow…she has a lot to deal with, Fil. Praying for her this morning.

    Our young friend Logan who is dealing with his second round of chemo is now also dealing with some infection and fevers. Here is the latest update from his mom:

    “They finally located the problem. He does have an infection. Scary stuff. Getting antibiotics and watching him. Praying it clears up quickly and completely. Your prayers are greatly appreciated because I believe in the Power of Prayer. Prayers for the infection to go away, stopping the fevers, and him feeling better. Please share with all your praying friends. Thank you all for your continued support.”
