    Shirl is suffering from severe exhaustion and could really use our prayers. She says it isn't a painful flare but utter exhaustion which is keeping her down. She asked me to post for her to ask for your prayers.

    Thank you all so very much and God bless you.

    Love, Mikie

    To Shirl,

    You are a sister, whose heart is larger than the Grand Canyon, through which the river of God’s mercy flows, making it ever larger to contain the burdens and trials that are providentially sent her way.

    You are a Sister, whose every desire is to please the Master, to seek His face, and to follow His will.

    You are a Sister, whose love of our Lord Jesus Christ supersedes her own self-love.

    You are a Sister who has that rare combination of grit and savvy, sweetness and tenderness that only comes through being wise as a serpent and meek as a dove.

    I pray
    that your heart be renewed with fresh showers of grace that come from heavenly portals;

    that your spirit be refreshed with the remembrance that spiritual comforts are often at their highest mark when our physical well-being is at low tide;

    that your soul will rejoice in the knowledge that God tempers every stress with His constant joy.

    May our loving Master show you the clusters of grapes in your wilderness walk;

    May you drink deeply of the heavenly wine made from such grapes, and may you be intoxicated with His love, joy and peace that only come from such travels.

    My precious Sister, may you continually feel the winds of His promise on your face:
    “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

    and my best wishes for feeling better soon. She has had such a struggle!

    May God comfort her in His everlasting arms.

    And my loving Lord who has actually taken me under His wing for the last 40 days or more. Without His love and your sincere petitions for me, I do not think I would have made it this far.

    All of you, may the Lord bless you richly for your concern and deep sweet prayers.

    I am somewhat better, but still badly depressed. I can't seem to get pass the depression no matter how much I pray and study the Word.

    I do know that in the end of all of this, the Lord will bring me out of it all with His perfect Peace, I always think of the the Book of Job......................

    Again, thank you, and sincere blessings to all. Every prayer request on this board is prayed for daily from me, names are not necessary, the Lord knows each and everyone of us and our needs, He knows every hair on our heads. If you do not see me here, know that you are still always in my deepest prayers.

    Special blessing to my dear sister of the heart, Mikie for posting my request, I was simply too ill to do so myself.

    Poimae, your prayers are always like a poem, thank you dear one. You never fail to touch the deepest part of my very soul.

    Shalom, Shirl

    I want you to know that I think of you often and keep you in my prayers. I was so hoping that you were feeling some relief.
    If prayer has helped you some these past days, then we must not let up.

    I appreciate so much that you are continuing to pray for me. I can use all the prayer you can muster these days. Thank you, dear friend.

    Love, Pepper

    "The Lord is close to the broken hearted
    and rescues those whose spirit is crushed."

    You have been so kind to me Shirl - so I wanted to share this scripture with you - it is one of my favorites.

    I have been depressed most of my life and it is very very hard - but He will bring us out of it someday - it is His promise.

    He loves us more than we will ever know,

    Thanks you for your kindess and caring,

    Elisabeth
