Prayer request

My mom fell yesterday and fractured her wrist. Anthony has surgery tomorrow to remove the tongue tie. I need prayers for them and for me to remain strong.


I got the above e-mail from my cousin today...please pray for my aunt's wrist to heal and for all to go well tomorrow with her 4 year old son's surgery. Thank you.

Stand Up

USCCB - (NAB) - November 29, 2007: "
“There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads"

Prayer for Today: May we have enough faith and hope in God to be able to stand erect ready for action and raise our heads in acknowledgement, when tragedies happen around us.
