How to pray for us tonight

Hi there, friends.

I know that a lot of you are getting ready to spend a part of your evening in prayer for us, so we thought we would let you know what we learned today, and how to specifically pray.  There are some IMPORTANT prayer requests here.

  • Ryan's bleeding scan showed no active bleeding.  Whether it's because the bleeding stopped (can you say MIRACLE!) or whether it had just stopped momentarily and will start up again, remains to be seen.  (I say - the sky is the limit; let's ask for the miracle.)
  • We are going to take a "wait and see" approach for the next few days.  Doctors will be monitoring his hemoglobin, blood pressure, and the output of the paracentesis.  The drainage seems to have slowed down considerably, another good sign.  Blood pressure and hemoglobin have been steady today - yeah!
  • If it appears like the bleeding is picking up again, the options are: more bleeding scans, laparascopic surgery to determine where the bleeding is, or the aforementioned angiogram to determine where the bleeding is and try to stop it.
  • Ryan is comfortable, and with Steve, Cathey, Ryan, myself, Corey, and Jeremy - we have enough people for three Euchre teams so the competition is heating up and a lot of trash talk is going on.  Okay, in all seriousness, we are praising God for Ryan being able to be surrounded by all of the members of his immediate family.
So, we are certainly not out of the woods yet.  But we so trust in the power of prayer, and we know that our God is listening to the rising multitudes.  We are confident in Him, and we continue to pray that His will would be done.

ROMANS 8: 31-32
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Your friends at the Hart Congregational United Church of Christ are praying for you. My prayer tonight is for thankfulness for family who can be close. Asking God to stay with you also. Thank you also for your fantastic example of how we should each face the tragedies in our own lives with true trust in God and contentment.

If you are playing euchre, you might be from MI.
We love you guys, whirled and twirled in worship songs about trusting God and our Great BIG God, and every little voice prayed for a mighty work of His hand.

I'm a friend of Eric and Ann. I'm watching their kids this week. As I was sitting in the bakery in Hart, I overheard the people at the table next to me talking about how they're praying for you! There's a lot of people lifting you up in prayer. Praying for you right now.

Lord we are grateful that you are the living God who hears and answers prayer. Thank you for what you have done for Ryan and his family. We all wait upon you to renew your strength within us. When we are weak you are strong. Please show your strength so others who do not know you will see your glory and come to believe.

My prayers are with each one of you. We know that God is bigger than any situation, and He is in complete control :). I have just read the first page of your blog, and have had my socks blessed off me (literally...I took my socks and slippers off for a few minutes LOL). I am blessed by your faith and sweet spirit(s), and your trust in God's timing. Take care, and I'm praying and have asked some good friends to pray for you too.
