Urgent Prayer Request and Praise

























As the water trickles from this fountain, one drop after another, prayers trickle from my heart to the heart of GOD. My heart is broken for so many. Please join me storming the heavens on the behalf of many!

*Please pray for Kat's family at Heart 2 Heart. Kat's husband lost his job, today!

*Please pray for Mary's family at Piles of Smiles. They are forging through turbulent times.

*Please continue to pray for my good friend, MaryGrace. She suffered a stroke over a week ago. She is progressing, but is still struggling with her vision.

*Please continue praying for Lisa at Glad Chatter as she continues her battle with cancer. 

*PRAISE: Many of you have asked about my great nephew, Amden. He was born with Down Syndrome. He has progressed with his peers and continues to defy all the odds and astound the doctors. We are very proud of his young Mom and Dad who are working with him constantly.

*PRAISE: Our family prays you will have a blessed Memorial Day weekend. Doug and I will spend tomorrow getting crowns at Dr. Jessup's Dental office. On Saturday and Sunday we will join in celebrating our friends baby dedication. Baby  Caleb is very special to us. Each of their children are adopted and we prayed for them. This will be Caleb's first birthday and his infant dedication service. His parents have chosen open adoption. We are privileged to celebrate the joy with both his biological and adoptive parents, as well as extended family. GOD is truly amazing.

I would have been remiss to omit both praises! They are the affects of prayer! I praise GOD for each of you who join the "Storm the Heavens" team! It is a honor to serve GOD with you.

Storming the heavens,

Andrea
