HELP !!!

Anybody still up...out there in cyberspace? Any PILGRIM PALS looking for someone to pray for?

Last night (Saturday) I went to the hospital again for my second intravenous treatment. To speed up the healing process the attending doctor prescribed some oral anti-biotics as well as the intravenous. I'll be going back again tonight (Sunday night) for more.

I arrived at work early last night and went straight to bed (it's a night sleep job). I've been exhausted the last three days. The problem is that I've been getting up every hour to go to the bathroom and now I can't get back to sleep. My mind is swimming with all manner of thoughts...mostly about financial disaster. You know how it is! You've been there. Satan has a field day with us when we are most vulnerable. I'm standing in the power of His shed blood and the victory that is ours through the wonderful cross (that passing-thru just wrote about).

Please pray, dear ones! "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knoweth them that trust in Him." - Nahum 1:7. I'm leaning on the truth of this verse tonight as I struggle.

Thanks so much for your faithful prayer support!

Gratefully,

David, the weary pilgrim

WILL BE PRAYING TODAY FOR U DAVID

REMEMBER DAVID -- this is allowed of God -- these trials would and could not come upon U unless HE ALLOWED IT - so that means HE IS WATCHING and CLOSE BY -- that did not help Job as he scraped his boils with broken pottery BUT , REMEMBER HOW GOD BLESSED -- so , if possible , keep THANKING GOD , we will pray David for God's GREAT HAND AND FOR HIS LOVE TO KEEP U

Dear Pilgrim Father,
I too will hurry to pray for you.
I guess that the brave and honest fighters like your self are an important target for the evil.
If he can force you to silence, he'll have won the battle of many souls.
Look at us fatigue and huddled who have found a place of power , comfort and inspiration here among the Pilgrim pals.
I don't for a second believe that God will fail to protect this little herd and their leader.
We are awaiting for a glorious siege.
God bless and help you and your family on this special day.
Felisol On The Fra Side Of The Sea.

Praying and trusting in our Father - that He will guide you, comfort you, heal you! Seems you've really been tested and/or attacted lately - if that is the case we trust that God is strengthening you - the enemy hates you David - I sense that right now - he hates what you have done in leading us Pilgrims together! A place of refuge for us! Oh how he hates it, but God is pleased and has already come to your aid - the enemy is only allowed so close to you - God is your strong sheild which the enemy can't get through but you already know this! Listen to me - the preacher - gosh I need to listen to my own words when I am discouraged! I think when one or two of us is discouraged the other Pilgrims are strong and encourage and vise versa!

I will pray now for you and all the Pilgrims since I seem to be strong in spirit today! I listened to an amazing sermon on line (Adrian Rogers) - visit my blog later because I am going to post some comments on it.

Dear Father in heaven…we lift up our precious brother in Christ to Your tender, merciful, mighty and powerful care. God…to be honest with You…right now I am furious at the enemy who is wreaking havoc in the lives of Your people. We know that his time is growing short…and that he seeks to take many to hell with him…and make the days of a believer full of pain, anguish and suffering. But while he has no hope…we have a hope that is eternal. Our hope is in Christ Jesus alone. We pray that You will help David to immediately recognize the attack of the enemy for what it is. Instead of being troubled and discouraged…we pray that he will be strengthened in his faith…because he knows that the God who created the universe with a word…is handling his problems. That he will reflect that these troubles are but for a season. That he knows more fully the love of his Savior and Redeemer. We know that You can redeem even our troubles…and bring good out of them. We pray that You are at work…even as we pray. We pray for You to touch David’s body…and remove the infection and pain. We pray that You would calm and still his mind. May he keep his focus on Christ Jesus alone….an that his rest would be sweet. We pray that Carol’s doctors would accurately diagnose what his happening in her body so that they may treat her effectively. You have made her body…fearfully and wonderfully. We pray that You the Great Physician would guide and direct them as they treat her. We thank You for providing medical care for David and Carol. You care about each part of their lives…from their health to their finances to their downcast spirit. We pray that You will work in each aspect. We pray for the finances that David and Carol need. That You will provide for them…and that through Your work…Christ Jesus name will be praise. Be the lifter of their heads…and the comforter of their soul and spirit. In Jesus name we pray…Amen. P.S…we can’t wait for the day Jesus crushes the enemies head…Amen, Amen and Amen.
