Please pray for our family as we struggle with our daughter moving in with her boyfriend. Our culture tells her it's ok, so our words are falling on deaf ears. We ask for prayers that her heart will be opened to the Holy Spirit and that she comes to understand that only harm will come from this type of living. Pray also that she returns to the faith and that her example will lead him to know Jesus Christ.

"Today bring me all devout and faithful souls, and immerse them in the ocean of my mercy" - Opening prayer for day 3 of the novena to the Divine Mercy. How appropriate for Maureen Little. May The good Lord grant her eternal rest. Well done good and faithful servant. And may God bless her and her family.

For Virgil Kershbaumer who passed away 6-20-15 at 90 years old. May he rest in peace in the hopes of rising again.

For my wife Sarah who's been having contractions for two weeks. May she be given the strength to carry her cross the final stretch, so we can have our new baby boy.

For Cody to love his wife, Sarah, like Jacob loved Rachel in the bible. its says in genesis 29:20 that Jacob's love for Rachel was so great, years of pursuing her felt like days. I also pray all liars, cheaters, evil, temptation, and harlots are driven quickly, far & immediately away from Sarah and Cody, for all of their, God willing, long, healthy, sound, whole, romantic, faithful, loving, prosperous, fun, happy devoted lives together. Let them be ONE always, in Christ, and only and always have eyes, minds, hearts, bodies & souls for each other, with God always in their midst and at their center. Let Cody always actively , intently, lovingly, faithfully, joyfully, purposefully, continuously, permanently pursue Sarah, now and for good! in Jesus Name, we pray, Amen.
