Pray for Charlie

Long to Worship You

Charlie is 77 years old. He was in a coma from Jan. 14-24. On Sunday evening, Sue and I went to the hospital to pray for him. He told me today that the only memory he has since Jan. 14 is our visit on the 24th. He remembers that we prayed for his healing and read the Bible to him. He praises God for answering our prayers and ending his coma that night. He has a way to go still!

Heavenly Father, heal your dear child in Sousse. Give him strength to return home to the UK, where he is the pastor of an evangelical church.

Buried in e-mail

Saved By Grace
Image by loswl via Flickr
Many relationships and activities kept us from answering e-mail for two months. They were very fruitful and blessed by the Lord. We thank Jesus for being our strength and reason for living. The biggest problem we've experienced is the quantity of unanswered e-mail. What a blessing it is to say that is the worst of our problems. Now, we need to either answer or delete these messages.

Heavenly Father, give Mike and Sue wisdom as they evaluate which of the emails to answer and delete. Help Mike to catch-up with paperwork and other less desirable tasks he needs to complete.

Try a Daniel Fast!

In 1997, when I was speaking in a church in Kentucky, I learned about The Daniel Fast. It is a short-term vegan diet, avoiding all forms of junk food and caffeine. We tried it. We shared it with others. I shared the Daniel Fast at our website in 1998. Over the last year, we've had 184,657 visitors to our Daniel Fast page. Give it a try! For your first fast, just go a few days. Then try for a longer duration.

Heavenly Father, encourage us as we deny ourselves of some earthly pleasures to focus more on You. Give us spiritual breakthrough as Your children today.

Visit our Daniel Fast Website at http://DanielDietFast.com. Tell your friends about it and share that link at your Facebook, Twitter or Blogs.

Fasting for 3 days
Daniel Fast in January only?

Happy 12th Birthday, Joshua!

Joshua at Auqua Palace last summer
It is fun for Joshua that he has his birthday on Wednesday, since that is Awana Club day. He will get to share cake, that mom is baking right now, with about 40 people. It will be fun. Once again we will rent a Renault car to drive up to Tunis. Since we don't have our permanent resident visa yet, we don't want to invest a lot of money in a car. Yesterday, I went alone by the train to Tunis. For more than two people, it is cheaper to rent a car.

Heavenly Father, thank You for reliable trains and rental cars in Tunisia. Keep the Farhos safe as they travel each week. Help them to get their resident visas soon.
