Each Wednesday evening I lead a small group Bible study. At the end of each lesson we have prayer time w/ prayer requests. I feel compelled to ask my siestas reading my blog to pray for this family.
My dear friend Tonja has a nephew - Justin who is serving in Afghanistan. He was granted leave a few weeks ago as his wife Kiesha was due to deliver their first baby. Miley, a sweet baby girl came into this world. Miley has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Kiesha has been admitted to the hospital with kidney problems and Justin was denied an extension of his leave and returned to Afghanistan on Monday.
I cannot fathom the fear, anxiety and sadness this family must be experiencing at this time. If any of you are so compelled, please write your prayers in a comment. I would love to print them off... give them to Tonja to send along to her nephew and his family.
Father God, I ask you to be with Justin, Kiesha, Miley and all of their family as they face struggles that so many of us cannot fathom. Cradle them in Your loving arms, provide protection, healing and strength during this difficult time. May they know that You are their rock, their fortress their strength. I ask all of this in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus. Amen
