Praying for Others

James 5:16

"...Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."

We got snow in Kansas City today, and the city was a mess. There were accidents all over the place, as people had to be reminded that snow means slick. It took Tammy an hour to get home from work, on a drive that usually takes 15-20 minutes. Thankfully, we both made it home safely, and we thanked the Lord for that. We pray for those who have to be out in the bad weather tonight.

We also prayed for David's uncle, Rick, who underwent an 8-hour surgery for cancer. He came through okay and the surgeon is confident he got it all. He is optimistic for a full recovery.

We also prayed for David's uncle, David, who is having some issues with his pacemaker. We are praying that the problems can be resolved quickly and easily.

It is such a privilege to pray for others. It gets our minds off our own difficulties and let's us share in the "carrying to the Throne." We appreciate all of you remembering us in your prayers, even as you go through various trials in your own lives.

We still very much loved.
