Prayer Request

Mornin' ya'll. As I sit here today and type away at this 'puter, my heart goes out to a special My Space friend who needs all our prayers so desperately. I'm asking all you prayer warriors to help me lift up Brenda aka "Barnspider". Bless her heart, she has gone through a series of trials lately and she's been in my constant prayers. In December, her daughter's boyfriend committed suicide. And on January 27 her daughter did as well. She was only 19. When I sit here, I almost feel guilty that my life is in the peaceful state it is right now. But I know now why God puts us through these things.....to help other people. When my daughter was dabbling in the same "things" that Brenda's daughter was, she took an overdose of pills, but thank God we got to her in time. But I remember the hurt and devestation I experienced back then. But to actually go through what Brenda's going through..........I just can't imagine right now.

So, I'm asking ya'll, please remember by friend in your prayers. She hasn't been on line lately, but I can certainly see why. If any of you are interested, I started a guest book on my My Space site for the prayers for Brenda. I thought that when she felt up to it, she would check it and see how many people God used to help carry her through this time. I'm not sure if you can sign it if you're not a member, but you can try if you feel led. You can reach this site by clicking on the My Space link on my blog.

I love each of you, and thank you for the prayers. And I know Brenda does too. We all have sooooooo much to be thankful for, even the trials, 'cause somewhere down the line we can help someone else. "This too shall pass".

Love all ya'll,
Vic

Vic, thank you for posting this! I know that we never understand why these things happen, and our hearts cry out, Does Jesus Care? He does care, and He will carry Brenda through this, I know. She will be in my prayers, and I'll be praying for you, too, as you continue your friendship with her and walk with her through this dark time in her life!

OH Vic... My heart just goes out to that poor lady. God bless her. I cannot imagine what she must be going through. Horrible! I will be praying for Brenda and her family. The devastation will pass, you're right...but the scars never leave, they just fade. I'll definitely be praying for her. Penny

I will be praying for this lady Brenda also. My prayer list keeps getting longer. There is so much hurt in this world but there is a loving and merciful God who can see us through our trials if we let him and we will come out victorious on the other side. I will be praying for this dear lady.
