Mary Doing Well

All – The Lord is good! Mary called me a few minutes ago. She came through the procedure just fine, though it was very painful, but the Dr’s could not believe that there were no blockages. The EKG’s came back showing pretty normal heart function, so it appears there was no permanent damage. They are thinking now that it may have some sort of a spasm of the muscle as a possibility, and there are medication changes coming for mary, but this is a major answer to prayer.

Mary will be discharged later tonight and will rest the week back at her home. Thank your prayer network for interceding and thank the Lord too for His intervention in this way. ml

The Prayer of Faith

Hi all – I talked to Mary at midday yest and her headaches had lessened…prayer answered. The local efc had gotten over the connect with her and see what support she might need and was going to continue checking in. jim and ron had been able to get up to visit along with several alumni from crisis response staff…thanks guys! And her sister was on her way.

We we’re out last night and I missed her call, but her vm said she was expecting to be in for the catheterization this morning, so pray for healing as you read this. Thanks,. ml

James 5:13-20 The Prayer of Faith (scripturally encouragement from Becky S)
13Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick20person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. 17Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. 19My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, 20remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.

Please Pray for Mary Held

Please be in prayer for Mary Held.

She is in the hospital right now in Wisconsin and the doctors believe that she has had some level of a heart attack. Please lift her up and pray for comfort, peace, and for those to come alongside her that can encourage her to know that God is the ultimate healer. Pray for wisdom for the doctors and nurses and that Mary would shine brightly for the Lord while she is in the hospital.

Please pray for her family and pray that they would be comforted during this time. We definitely praise the Lord for Mary's heart...she has touched so many lives in New Orleans, Galveston, and all over the country. Please pray for strength and God's peace to rest on her!

Thank you all so much!
-Katie :)
