  1. Please lift up Kelly McLeod's family. Her sister's husband, Clint, was in a terrible accident at work this week. He was burned over much of his body. This family has 4 very small children--including a newborn.

    Please pray for rapid healing for Clint, and for God to sustain this family during this time. Also lift up Kelly as she tries to help them. Thank you!

      God your ways are higher than our ways. Thank you! I pray for this woman wanting to lose weight. So many woman including myself struggle with this Lord. May you be the focus of her weight loss journey. May she give it to you everyday. Help her to make healthy decisons each day with her food, with exercising, with getting enough rest so she can focus and have the energy she needs Lord. Lord you do not give us more than we can handle and you ask us to lean on you in our weaknesses Lord, for where we are weak you are strong. Where we are strong you are stronger!! Glory Lord, help this woman to rely on you so that your strenght shines through her and that you get the glory. The weight didn't come on in a day and it won't come off in a day. Please help her to keep the focus on you knowing that you will never leave her. I pray that she will be encouraged with victories in her weight loss each day. Keep Satan from away from this woman Lord. Protect her in the name Of Jesus. I ask these things in His name Lord~Amen

  5. Hey ladies - I would just like to let you know Clint and Jessica (and baby John) have made it home from Nashville and are in North Carolina. My parents still have their other 3 children for now. There is much prayer needed:

    1. Clint's physical healing (2nd and 3rd degree burns across hands, arms, and chest)
    2. Clint's pscyological/emotional healing - he is experiencing flashbacks
    3. Jessica's stamina/patience/endurance - Clint can't really use his hands yet, so she is having to do a lot for Clint, in addition to nursing and caring for a newborn.
    4. The kids - missing their mom and dad, not understanding what is going on (Caleb -5, Cate - 3 and Ally - 2)
    5. My parents - caring for the children in the interim

    So many praises from this set of circumstances though. We are so thankful for the body of Christ that has surrounded Jessica and Clint and our entire family. We appreciate all your prayers. Please keep them coming each day. It will be a LONG road to recovery.

    Love - Kelly McLeod

    Girls,
    This may seem like a random request and maybe even a bit broad in a sense, but it's something that's troubling me and would love some reinforcement of prayers.
    I have a brother-in-law who, at times, is already a challenge for me personally... but now it's a matter of his attitude and world view influencing my niece and nephew.
    I already knew that he was racist. Just didn't realize how greatly... until my niece stepped out of the car today and made a durogatory remark about one of my neighbor kids. I was quick to reprimand her, but know that my degree of influence is much less than that of their father's. And it just infuirates me. Racism is just so blatantly ignorant and has no basis, or place in today's culture. And after having gotten to know several African American friends better in the past year or two and knowing the love the Lord has for them, it just really offends me and breaks my heart. I realize that's how he was raised, but he just seems to be perpetuating it in his own life. And I hate it. That's not how we were raised, and so it makes me just as angry at my sister for not challenging him in his opinions. And I don't want to see that passed on to those sweet kids who as of a couple years ago, didn't see anything different in other races.
    So, please, if you feel led, would you pray for my heart that only seems to be hardening more and more toward my brother-in-law because of this, and for my niece and nephew to retain their own world views, my sister to recognize the need to stand up for what she knows in her heart is right, and my brother-in-law... that The Lord would soften his heart and do a work to alter his perspective.
    Thank you so much.

      I am so sorry about this situation. I cannot imagine the turmoil and frustration that you must feel. You are doing the right thing by asking for prayer and by giving this to the Lord. He will heal your heart in this process. He will keep softening your heart towards your brother in law, even though he says such horrible things. Keep seeking Him and His purpose in all of this. Pray for him. It's the best way to dissolve the anger. Praying along with you, shine sister. Much love to you.
