Pray for Dallas, Pray for Jen

Hi dear prayer warriors. This is Jamie again.  What a sad day in Dallas’ history and in the history of our nation.  My heart goes out to the families affected by the tragedy of last night’s shootings.

I am writing today to activate this army.  Our friend, Jen, is sick.  She went into the hospital last weekend with severe pain and nausea.  The doctors have been trying to get it under control this week, but she is not well.  Being the fighter that she is, Jen is still undergoing radiation treatment while hospitalized in hopes of decreasing the cancer lesions in her brain.  This, in turn, may help decrease her overall nausea and pain.

Jennifer, Scott, Lincoln and Jane would greatly appreciate your prayers.  Specifically, please pray for wisdom for Dr. Osborne and Dr. Casanova as they develop a plan for what could be her new normal.  Please pray for Lincoln that he would feel the Lord’s love flowing through all of his sweet and sacrificial caregivers.  Please pray for Jane to feel the Lord’s comfort in her moments of sadness.  Please pray for Scott to feel the Lord’s peace in times when he feels supremely overwhelmed.  Please pray for Jen’s friends to feel the Lord’s strength when weariness overtakes them.  And most importantly, please pray for Jen to feel relief from this extraordinary pain.

For now,  Jen is spending this time with her family.  Thank you for your continued care and concern for our sweet friend.

As we get on our knees before our heavenly Father grieving for those who have lost their lives and those who are suffering, may we be reminded that we serve a loving, caring, forgiving, gracious & merciful God.  And may we somehow have the opportunity to share that truth with those who need it the most – even if that includes ourselves.

Much love to you all,

Jamie (aka B)

  1. Well said Jamie. I cannot imagine how hard this is…for all of you. As your days are, so shall your strength be. To God be the glory!

  2. Jennifer-
    I love you and am praying! I have driven by the house 3 times this week and stopped and prayed. Trusting the Lord for mercy and grace for my sweet friend…

  3. Oh Jennifer, I hate to hear of your pain. My heart aches for your loved ones. I am still praying He is the anchor of your soul! Also, tonight I am praying Psalm 119:76 that His unfailing love is your comfort. Scott’s comfort. Linc’s comfort. Your mom’s comfort. And for all your friends….love to my sister in the Lord.

  4. Thank you for the update Jamie. Prayers continue. It is summer, so that brings to mind a number of summer days over several years sitting with my mom in her bed playing cards as she fought the cancer. Those memories fuel my prayers for you Jen — prayers for laughter, memories for all and relief from the pain for you. And for supernatural memory for Scott and your friends so they can fill in the story for Lincoln, even when he he old and gray himself. Praying that in each minute you experience the Lord’s love as we can know it on earth. And for the army surrounding you in Dallas, that each one knows the Lord’s love in and because of your story and in that, they are strengthened to be the arms and feet of Jesus with skin on.

  5. Jamie, or B, your sweet words are so thoughtful and appreciated, and beautifully written. Thinking of you all, and continuing to pray.

  8. Jen and all of you have been on my mind and in my prayers so much this week. God has been faithful to keep her present in my thoughts. I will make these words that you’ve shared my prayer: strength, wisdom, comfort, relief, love, and knowledge that God is sovereign even in the hardest trials.
