Prayer Requests....



"I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; 

   turn your ear to me and hear my prayer."

Psalms 17:6


I believe in the power of prayer, and in the strength of this online community when we bombard the throne of heaven with our needs, hurts, and requests. I want to ask you to pray with me about two burdens on my heart.

#1 My sister, Sarah, has been struggling with some medical issues.




 The doctor will soon be scheduling date for surgery to remove a large cyst in her neck. Unfortunately this isn't the first time she has dealt with this. In fact, when she was in junior high, a cyst was removed from the exact same spot.
I'm thankful that she has good insurance, but this definitely isn't an ideal time for surgery or this type of medical stress. She is currently in her first year of law school which is enough stress in itself!
Please pray for strength for her and wisdom for the doctors over the next few weeks.

#2 I'm burdened about writing a series here at A Steady Rain about the blessings that arise through trials. 
Blessings don't always come in the form of an unexpected check in the mail or a miraculous healing. Blessings can arise from death, health issues, broken relationships, and financial stress.
Please pray for wisdom and insight as I work on a series that I hope will be encouraging to many!

Also, if you have seen blessings in your life come from an unexpected situation, please e-mail me at:
rachel(at)a-steady-rain(dot)com
I'd love to possibly use your story as a part of this series. 

Thanks SO much for your prayer.....I'd love to pray for needs in your life as well! Feel free to share in the comments section!!
