7 September 2009 - Special Prayer Requests

Annie S will be having eye surgery this Wednesday. She is on dialysis, but has just been added to the kidney transplant wait list. Please pray for her diabetic condition causing these complications.

Pauline Gray passed away the morning of 23 August 2009 due to double pneumonia in Pensacola, Florida. She is the mother of Commander Obra Gray for whom we prayed while he was deployed to Iraq and on various carrier deployments. Pray for the repose of her soul and for comfort for her husband and family who remain behind. Give thanks Obra was able to be with her when she left for home. Pray in particular for her husband Obra (Commander O’s father) who is now alone after so many years of Pauline’s company.

Bashir Ahmed, father of Shamim Gray, father in law of Commander Obra Gray for whom we prayed while he was deployed to Iraq and on various carrier deployments, is gravely ill. Bashir lives in London. He was in the hospital for some time. They have been able to do little for him and have sent him home. It is good for him to be home. His wife can get a little rest now and he is doing better being at home He is lucid more some days than others and can walk a few steps. Please pray God will deliver a miraculous recovery for Bashir; if that not be God’s will, a departure in peace to His world for him. Please pray God will extend His Grace to Bashir and his family and that they will accept. Shamim keeps her faith in the Lord. Above all, please pray also for his family to open their hearts to accept all God’s love will bring them.

Obra for God's comfort as he mourns the loss of his wife Pauline. Please pray he will put his trust and faith in God and turn his heart outward to the world, remembering God put him here to make a difference. Pray he will venture out, not stay inside and petrify; that he will let his heart be open to God’s grace.
