Ellen is continuing to recover at home in the face down position. Each day is difficult, yet she is managing. She must be face down 23 out of 24 hours of each day. She was overwhelmed with the outpouring of prayer on her behalf. She could not believe that so many people who do not know her would care enough to pray. What a testimony of faith each of you are during this difficult time in Ellen's life.

I attached the original prayer request below for any who do not know about Ellen's condition. Please continue to storm the heavens on Ellen's behalf. GOD BLESS you all!

Please pray for our friend Ellen. She lives in Arkansas. She has a very serious condition in her left eye. These are her words:

"After 2 1/2 years the macular hole in my left eye has reopened and I am had surgery Thursday, July 23rd. I will be in "face down recovery" again for 2 weeks...ugh! Please keep me in your prayers that this time it will remain permanently closed and that this doesn't occur in my right eye. A scan showed signs of it developing there, but the doctor says he has seen this reverse in a small % of cases. This is the small % I want to be in! Ellen"

Storming the heavens on Ellen's behalf,

You are our Abba. I come before You asking that Your perfect peace be poured into Ellen as she recouperates from this eye surgery. Anxiety would find no room inside of Ellen to take up residence. That when Ellen becomes lonely, she would be found reaching out to You. You are always there, never leaving us. Ellen would draw nearer and nearer to You. That her testimony coming through this was that You were, as always, FAITHFUL! That she is still here, and that she saw You every step of the way. In Your Son's Name....Jesus Christ. Amen.

Will be in prayer for your friend. Looking forward to a good report and good recovery for her.

Erin said...

Wow! That would be so difficult. She's in my thoughts, too.

Leslie said...

Okay, I'm stuck on this "face down" thing. Does she have a special bed or something like those massage tables that she has to lay on? I feel so badly for her! Praying!

momstheword said...

I am assuming she has one of those beds with a hole in the middle. Otherwise it wouldn't be face down. Poor thing. I hope they have a hole and that she can read through the hole, although I don't know how she would turn the page.

I can't imagine having to spend so much time face down! I would be so overwhelmed. Hopes for a complete recovery!

Andrea said...

It is a bed with a hole in the middle so she can be face down. I would be going crazy. My heart goes out to her. Thank you, EVERYONE for storming the heavens on her behalf!

Thank you for taking on this challenge to post updates on Ellen! You are an amazing woman and prayer warrior. Too often people post prayer requests but never update us on their progress! I love that you are doing this.

Steven and I will continue to keep this loving woman in our prayers and hope for a full and complete recovery!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

You are a blessing to pray for your friends.

Leslie & I have hooked up and are going to get together at the Philly Conference. I'll let you know how it goes. Laurie & Sonya from RCWW are also going. Wish you could too!

Prayers still being said here! Thank you for the update - God Bless!

Laura said...


I will definitely pray for your friend Ellen. what a terrible condition! A friend of mine went through a similar ordeal. I was able to send her several Beth Moore cds to listen to and she says they helped her tremendously. Do you think Ellen would like me to send her some? Send me her address through email and I would be glad to.

Have placed the prayer button on my blog- for Ellen. Your blog is a blessing!

Dearest Andrea,

My prayers for Ellen are being said. I just added her prayer button to my site.

Several years ago when I was working, I had a co-worker who went through this kind of operation. Face down for him for so long was a difficult task. I am praying that she heals very quickly in the name of Jesus.

I love you dear friend and thank you for your prayer support and friendship not only for myself and my husband, but for so many. You are an angel that He has placed in human form on this earth.

Love, Peace, Blessings and Hugs,
