Please Continue to Pray

Here's a picture taken this last spring...(my hair was brown for a brief while.)

To all of you who have come to this blog and prayed for my husband and for me and for Jan's mom--I love you...You are so absolutely dear and I so appreciate you holding me up in this time of great need.

This day began at 5:30...It is now 2 am and I just got home a little bit ago...It seems like the longest day of my life.

My husband is in the Intensive Care Unit and I please ask for you to continue praying for him....I needed to get a few hours of sleep before I make the 25 mile trip back to the hospital over Lake Pontchartrain....

I don't know if you've ever been in this type of situation where it is so unexplainably shocking that you don't even know how to pray because you are living from one moment to the next hearing one bit of information after the other that defies your sense of what the present should be like....

I will leave early in the morning again and I will give you an update when I get home...I thank you so much for your prayers and are all unbelievable human beings and I thank you for all you mean to me.


P.S. I can't help wondering how on earth I started a simple prayer blog in case someone needed a prayer and then I ended up needing it myself....No doubt, God knew that all of this would be happening before it did.


  1. oh dear cindy,you are in my thoughts and we are all giving,you strength to get through this I too have been in this situtaion hun and know exactly how you feel,stay strong,you are in my prayers,hun love hugs cheryl xxxxx

  2. Cindy,

    You have my thoughts and prayers for your husband and you as well. I do hope that he will be ok and this will all be over soon.

    You are so dear to us all here Cindy, I hope you know that.

    {{{HUGS}}} and {{{PRAYERS}}} for you all.


  3. My prayers continue for strength, and healing of your dear husband. May God stay close by his side, be blessed sweetie.

  4. Cindy, God does work in awesome ways, doesn't He? Look at all the people who are praying for you and for your husband. I will continue praying for you both daily. Again, thank you for your prayers for my mom.

    God bless you and hold you tight, provide you with the strength and assurance you need, refresh you, keep you strong in your faith, and provide swift healing to your husband.

  5. Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. Romans 8:26

    Don't worry. The Holy Spirit is interceding right now.

  6. I prayed for you and hubs several times yesterday. I went to bed with you and another friend whose husband had surgery yesterday heavy on my mind. And I'm praying again this morning. May the Lord restore him to radiant good health...and may He lavish His grace and peace upon you.

    Love and great big hugs,

  7. Hi Cindy,
    Praying for you and your husband at this time of need. It is ok that you don't know what to pray at this time. God knows exactly what your heart and mind are saying. You are in the palm of his hand.

  8. Hi Cindy, Oh my, i am sorry i was unaware that this was happening to you . I will keep you both in my prayers sweetie and will be thinking of you constantly. I have been a similar situation twice since 2005 , first it was my 5 week old grandson and then last year it was my son who is 30 and suffered a stroke and an anuerysm. Both times I was blessed and feel that God granted me miracles. I hope he will grant you the same.
    please know that you are being prayed for and I hope you will be back with good news soon.

  9. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14

    Dear Cindy, praying for you and your husband to take courage in the Lord.


  10. Hi Cindy,
    I prayed and thought about you and your dear hubby thru out the day yesterday, and will continue to do so today. Please know that many of us are holding you close in our prayers, and asking for a total recovery. Hope that you can get some much needed rest. Keep us posted please if you get a chance.

  11. You know there are so many prayers winging your way from so many people who hold you dear in their hearts, including me.
    The Lord will keep you strong dear Cindy.

  12. (I wrote this twice because my first one disappeared. Hope it doesn't go on two times.)

    Dear Cindy, I continue to be in prayer for you and Ralph. God is with you. What a beautiful picture of you much love.

    Remember that even if it doesn't seem like it, He is right there in your midst, just like the picture you shared in one of your posts lasts week. You had no idea it was there all along.

    I am not surprised that you started a prayer blog not knowing you'd need prayer down the line. God did. He is so good that He had you sowing what you didn't even know you'd need to reap down the road. That is our precious Father.

    Remember that even in the midst of that hospital, there are eyes watching you who don't know Him and are seeing Him through you. Your brokenness only allows His light to shine through more brightly. Much love sis.

    Big hugs and may the Lord wrap Himself around you today like a warm blanket and bring you much comfort and peace.

  13. Cindy~ I am glad you are getting some rest, as you will need it in the days to come. I am praying for strength and peace for you both as you face this most stressful and scary time. You are surrounded by God's love and many prayers...

  14. Cindy,
    You and him are still in my prayers. Be careful. God loves you and so do we. Big hugs,
    Kim :)

  15. Dear Cindy,
    You and your husband have been in my prayers. This is a terrible thing to go through but please know God is by your side holding you both in his hands. There is no better place to be.
    xo, Karen

  17. Still praying, Cindy. I know you don't have a lot of computer time now so I'm not posting a long note.

  19. Cindy I just now found out about what has been happening with your husband. I'm adding my prayers to all those already sent.

  20. Cindy - lifting you up in prayer.

  21. You and your husband are still in my prayers. I wrote your name on my hand, and every time I see it, I pray for you. We will continue to pray.
