I realized it's been a while since I've shared prayer requests about some of my EI friends. Would you take a few minutes today to pray for one or more of these precious people? Thank you so much!
S, N, K - These two brothers and their mom are still enduring chronic fatigue, severe chemical sensitivity, etc. They are amazing examples of living by God's grace and persevering in suffering. It's been a long road for them (over 20 years). Please pray for continued strength and faith for each of them, and for answers and tools that will bring progress in healing.
E, D, A, Z - This amazing family has been dealing with multiple and extreme health challenges for over two years. God has brought much miraculous healing, praise Him! However, there's still a long way to go. Right now the priority is for better sleep for the youngest child, so that everyone can sleep better. Please pray God will bring healing for Z in the area of sleep, and that everyone will soon have improved sleep.
J - He has been struggling with mold illness for the last few years. Praise God that he was approved for disability! However, he's currently homeless because there are no houses he can tolerate. He's been sleeping in a relative's car, but with the freezing temperatures, it's hard to stay warm. Unless you've lived through something like this, it's hard to imagine. So I'll just say that life is very difficult for him. Please pray his disability payment will come through quickly so he can buy a vehicle, and that he can find a car that is healthy for him. Also, please pray God will keep J close to His heart through this fiery trial.
A - My dear missionary friend has been dealing with health challenges after many years in other countries. Fatigue, allergies, poor sleep, etc. are some of what she's working to overcome. She's praying for restored good health soon so she can continue in the ministry God has given her. Please pray for clear direction and wisdom about treatment options, supplements, diet, etc. Also please pray for encouragement and joy in the midst of this difficult season.
E - She has been dealing with chemical sensitivity for over ten years. Though she's improved a lot and is able to do many things now, she needs to find new housing soon. This is a huge challenge for anyone with EI. Please pray God will lead her and will provide a safe and healthy place for her to live. Also for daily encouragement and continued healing for her.
Thank you so much for your prayers! These are just a few of the people I know who are facing difficult health challenges. There are many others. It's hard to see people in pain, but I can also see God at work in their lives through the suffering. As Psalm 91 says, God is our refuge and He is with us in trouble.
I hope you are experiencing God's comfort and strength in your life today. And if you have a prayer request, feel free to post it in the comments, so we can be praying for you as well.
God bless you!
