Prayer List 01/21/21

Prayers for our nation during the Covid crisis. May the Lord protect us all.

I often receive requests from women who don’t wish to have their concerns made public. I offer up prayers for all of the women who are burdened with concerns they try to carry alone. May the Lord lift their burden. May the Lord make His presence known to each of them. May the Lord bring them peace, healing, love, & comfort.

Joy Arseneau: She is the 3 year old daughter of Jordan & Nikki Arseneau. Joy has been diagnosed with leukemia. Praise report from Joy’s mom, Nikki: Joy’s biopsy came back showing .0001% cancer cells in her bone marrow! This puts her in the standard risk/favorable pathway. This is AMAZING news! Barely any abnormal cells detected! Joy must continue with chemo for at least two more years to ensure the disease stays away.

The road ahead will still be challenging, but for now, we are celebrating this fantastic report!
