10/10/12 from Mom

Shane rested during the night. His fever went up to 102 and is now at 100.2. They just informed me that his incision has more drainage than it should and we are waiting to hear from the surgeon if they will take shane back into surgery and see what is causing the excessive drainage. We ask for continued prayers in Shane’s body to heal.

    Thank you for taking time to write about Shane’s progress. Just wanted you to know that we are praying for Shane’s recovery and thinking about you and your family. Many of your FAs have stopped by to check on you and they send their thoughts for Shane to heal soon. I’m keeping you and your family in my prayers. God bless you and care for Shane.

  4. Gail…

    …as I read your posts, I am confounded by what to pray for and what to say to encourage you and your family. The Bible tells us to ‘pray without ceasing’… so throughout the day, I close my eyes and remind God that I haven’t forgotten you or Shane, because it doesn’t matter where I am, He is there beside you. Our Christmas Pageant prayer team sends an email out every day and today it was regarding the Prayer Life of Christ. Hope this will encourage you.

    Jesus’ Prayer Life

    Jesus himself prayed often. Being one of us while on this earth, Jesus was subjected to the same frustrations, temptations, joys and sorrows that affect us all today. Through it all he prayed that God would give Him the help and strength to accomplish the task He had been given.

    Jesus is still our example today, thousands of years later.

    There are ten characteristics that describe Jesus’ prayer life, giving us a clear picture of what Jesus thought of prayer. These characteristics give us an example to follow.

    Let’s look at Ten Characteristics of Jesus’ Prayer Life

    1. Jesus believed that prayer works. Mark 7:7-11 – “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”
    Matthew 7:7-11

    2. Jesus’ prayers did not make Him passive. Matthew 25:31-46 – “…The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me…'”

    3. Jesus got alone to pray. Matthew 14:23 – “After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone.”
    Matthew 6:6 ; Mark 1:35-36, Luke 5:16

    4. Jesus balanced private and shared praying.
    Luke 9:28 – “About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.”
    Luke 9:18

    5. Jesus prayed before meals.
    Mark 6:41 – “Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.”

    6. Jesus gave thanks.
    Luke 10:21 – “At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.”
    Matthew 11:25

    7. Jesus sang some prayers.
    Mark 14:26 – “When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.”
    Matthew 26:30

    8. Jesus prayed before making important decisions.
    Luke 6:12-13 – “One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles.”

    9. Jesus prayed for His disciples.
    John 17:11,15,24 – “I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name–the name you gave me–so that they may be one as we are one. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
    John 17:9-26

    10. Jesus still prays for us.
    Romans 8:26,27 – “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”
    Hebrews 7:25

    May the peace of our Lord be with you today, a whisper in your ear whenever you need Him.
