Is Prayer a part of your life?

18 Feb

Prayer and its effects are a major topic these days, not only in religious circles but also among medical professionals.

I confess that I didn’t pray that often when I was at Southeast High and I rather doubt that many of my class mates did either. Unless of course we got into serious difficulty, than we may have asked for help.

As I write this, two of our classmates have asked for our prayers. Harold Begley’s wife Goldie, has had serious heart surgery w/ ongoing complications. Harold was my neighbor and good friend during my years at SEHS. Dean Sparks, also a good friend, is recovering from surgery and he and his wife Christine, are depending on the prayers of our classmates.

Ironic, it was Dean that first told me of the formation of a prayer group at the time of our 50th Reunion. I was waiting on him to write something about the group (prayer circle) so we could put it here on our blog. We will have to wait until he recovers to give us the details.

If you would like for your classmates to remember you and your family in their prayers, just let some of us know and we’ll pass it on to these praying friends or attach it somewhere on the net if you want us to.

May God bless us all in 2011 and don’t forget the National Day of Prayer.

    Prayer is an incredible vehicle of travel available for our spirits. It allows us to at once be out in Nevada w/ the Begley’s, zoom over to Afghanistan, stop by the Oval Office on the return trip while at the same time being transported to before the Throne of God himself. Wow. (and these are just a few of the places that came to mind this morning)”Beam me up,Scotty”

      Update:March 8

      Dear Friends,
      Thank you again for all your prayers and cards and thoughtfulness. Your support and Faith have meant a lot. I am well on the way to recovery,although it will be 2-4 weeks more before I am back to a semblance of normal. But this week I will start participating again in some of my usual activities. It’s just a matter of time now, but please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. All the best!
      Dean
