I have received an urgent prayer request from Bluebird, a long time member of our community here at OCICBW...
I've mostly been lurking lately as depression and physical illness have gotten to me, but my family really needs prayers bigtime. Here in Farmersville, Texas we're having the worst freeze in years, with temperatures in the single digits F. Thursday night I left the water on, but not enough. The pipes froze, with no water coming out since then. Please pray that there is little or no damage. Living mostly on my husband's disability we can't begin to pay for much work and I just don't know what we'll do if the pipes burst. Right now I just want to die for my stupidity. Oh, and today is my birthday.
Please pray for Bluebird, her family and her community, and also all those who are struggling with the cold weather in the northern hemisphere and those down under who are again threatened by bush fires and drought.
My brother is a retired Methodist minister, and had recently taken on an interim job at a congregation which was almost at war within itself. My family feels that if God really didn't want my brother in that position, there might have been a more subtle way to extricate him.
As it is the weekend, please place any of your own prayer requests in the thread to this post.
