Prayer Request

Hey everyone! I hope that you all had a refreshing & relaxing weekend. I just have a quick prayer request I would like to share. I wanted to ask you if you would be willing to join me in prayer for one of my best friends. Emilee has been having quite a few health problems the last couple of months, but she has really had a difficult time in the last week or so.
 If you remember from my last post, she had to be rushed to the hospital last week in an ambulance because she had a severe allergic reaction to something. They ran some tests on her to try to establish what she was reacting to, but they won't get the results for another 2 weeks or so. In the meantime, Emilee is having reactions almost daily, & they have no idea what is causing them. The reactions are so severe that her throat will swell up & block her air passages. The only way she can keep them under control is to take benadryl  regularly. But Em also has a kidney disease that the benadryl irritates. So if she doesn't take the benadryl, she can barely breathe, but when she does take it, she is in severe pain from her kidneys. She has had a great attitude about it so far, but she is starting to feel the stress of all these issues on top of the craziness of school. So if you think of it, I would really appreciate your prayers for her. Just pray that the doctors would be able to discover what is causing such severe reactions & that in the meantime the Lord would give her encouragement & strength. Thank you so much! Have a great week =)

Colossians 1:9-14 "And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."


  1. Poor Emilee, I'll be praying for her. I can't imagine what she must be going through.
