Vanessa is due in October. She's a joy to her parents, a blessing to her son and an inspiration to her friends at GCC. She and her husband Ben came to pray over the new expanded atrium this evening.
She is practiced in prayer and she's been praying a lot lately.
Sheila and I have been praying with her, and as she wrote her prayer on the atrium floor tonight I prayed for her. I prayed for the child she carries. I prayed for her husband. I prayed for her family, and I prayed for her brother.
Some of you may remember her brother was suddently stricken down with a life-threatening illness. Days ago he suddenly and unexpectedly moved from health, vitality and strength to weakness and frailty. He slipped into a coma and days later miraculously awoke.
Vanessa continues praying for her brother's recovery.
When she got up and walked away I photographed Vanessa's prayer.
John 9:1-3 - As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him."
