This prayer need came from my sister Pat. Wanda is her close friend and Wanda's son Eddie is in Afghanistan. Please keep this young man and all our military in your prayers. Thank you.
"Eddie just called. He is a Gunny (Gunnery) Sergeant and is an operations chief of a company of Marines. He is over a truck company. I hate that, because he will be out on the roads, where they plant bombs. He didn't know where he was and he doesn't know where he is going. His troops have not come in yet but when they do they will not be coming from his base in North Carolina. He is at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan. That is all he knew. I had hoped he was in supply but instead he is over 300 plus troops that will be patroling roads and going into homes.
He said as soon as the troops arrive that he will not be able to call. So far he has been able to communicate by facebook and phone. After his men get there it will be awhile before anyone will hear from him. I looked up where he is on the computer and it is awful. Pray for him, please. Love, Wanda "
The Lord: Yahweh. The Eternal. Jehovah. I Am. The self-Existent One. The God of forever and ever.
Is: Not will be one day. Not someday. Not was a long time ago. Is now, at this very moment—as I draw each breath, as I take each step, as I face each circumstance of life.
My: Not just someone else’s. Not just the pastor’s. Not just the missionary’s. Not just the people in the Bible. Personal God. My God. Knowing me intimately, watching me carefully, loving me fully.
Shepherd: Pastor. The One who tends, keeps, guards, guides. The Good Shepherd; The Great Shepherd; The Chief Shepherd. The One who leads. The One who feeds. Life giver. Care giver. Watching every moment; protecting in every situation; providing every need. Laying down His life. Giving His all. Seeking me. Carrying me. Holding me close.
I: His hand is on me. I am the apple of His eye. I am His beloved. I am His child. I am His possession. I belong to Him. I am in His hands. I am in His thoughts. I am on His heart.
Shall Not: Never! Not once! Not in any circumstance; not in any trial; not at any age. I am certain, sure, persuaded, unmistaken, absolutely confident of His “Yes” to me.
Want: He is my supply. He is my provider. He is my provision. I shall not be given a stone instead of bread. I shall not come up empty, be destitute, find out that I have been forsaken. In Him, my Lord, my God, my Shepherd, my Pastor, I find no lack.
Just a note to let you know I'm feeling better. Thank you for praying for me. I had bloodwork today and will go tomorrow to see a neurologist and have an appointment with a gastroenterologist on Feb. 1.
Very thankful to be feeling more 'normal' once again.
