December 17, 2007


Dad, Ofcourse, you're always in my prayers, and I hope you know that when I pray, I pray for God to touch you with his peace that surpasses all understanding and that he will give you hope. I'm so encouraged to know that you can feel His touch. In a way, it's like I'm able to be there even though I'm over 600 miles away. I read this passage this morning and it really spoke to my soul. I hope it brings you encouragement.

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days for me were written in your book before one of them came to be...Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting." Ps 139:14-16;23-24!

Love you,

Our God is a very big God.
Lay your head on Abba's chest and hear how His heart beats with love for YOU.
Just as YOU are right now.
YOU,His child.
You are Abba's Child.

Pretty surreal when it happens eh? You are well prayed for David by people you don't even know. Glad you are back online with us. Prayers will continue.

Hey David

Have a great Christmas and New Year!! I'll be thinking of ya


Dear Dave, Prayer is truly amazing. Just like you describe, a sense of well being in the midst of dire circumstances. I call it experiencing the grace of God. I am glad you sensed it. I pray for you often. I don't understand the how of it, but I believe in the power of it because I experience the effects of it all the time. Wow, the amount of prayers that go up on your behalf must be numerous!!!!
