Hello everyone.  I received an e-mail today from my dear friend, Lynne Mason.  She was requesting prayer for Ellie Rose Loop, the five-year-old daughter of a couple that she and her husband discipled several years ago.

Since my father’s illness, I’ve become far more aware of the power of prayer and what an important responsibility it is for the saints to intercede for one another.  So, please go to the Caring Bridge site where Ellie’s mama is posting about her illness and start praying for this precious little girl and her family. 

You can also leave words of encouragement in their guest book.  Let the Loops know that you’re praying for them.  I can’t tell you what a blessing it was to us to read our guest book on Caring Bridge and receive notes from brothers and sisters we didn’t even know who were faithfully upholding us in prayer.

May God be glorified through this situation and be pleased to display his mercy.
