Tomorrow morning Melanie and Austan are taking Witt to church for the first time. At the end of the service one of our pastors will join us at the altar and lead us in prayer for Witt. They would like to invite anyone who goes to our church to come down and join us in prayer. It will be at the end during the altar call. We would also like anyone out there to join us from wherever you are (Acts 1:14a) "with one mind devoted to prayer." The time will be somewhere between 11:45 to 12:00 CST. Join us in praising God for Who He is and thanking Him for what He has already done for us!! Psalm 103:1-5 "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all this is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle."

O God, You Who are Mighty to Save, we praise You as Sovereign, as Healer. Just as Christ prayed for Your will, Father we ask that Your will be to heal Witt's heart to Your glory. May the name of Christ be magnified throughout the world because of your work in and through this tiny but power filled life of Witt' the name above all names, Jesus the Christ, Jesus our Christ!

As I write this, Witt is laying beside me and Melanie is in the other room with "On Christ, the Solid Rock I Stand" blaring loudly. She and Austan do take their stand on Christ. They are firmly planted and grounded in God's truth. We are asking God for a healing, believing without a doubt that He Who has the power to save our souls, has the power to heal Witt. And yet our faith is and will always be firmly established in Who God is rather than His actions. He alone is God...He alone is Sovereign, He alone is Trustworthy....Glory!!!!
Witt, at my side as I type!

Our church will pray for Witt tomorrow as I will take your request and read it at our prayer time in Sunday School. We know that our GOD is all powerful and HE is able to do this for Witt and his precious parents. We are praying for a complete healing. Kristi Cox's mother Jackie Marsh.

We'll be praying for God's perfect will for healing for Witt's heart and precious body. How we praise God for Who He is--our creator, the One who loves us, the One who wants none of us to perish but to come to Him.
We love all of you and are so grateful that we live in a country where we can openly shout our love for our Precious Father. May He keep His arms tightly surrounding all of you tomorow as we all lift our prayers of thanksgiving and petition to Him for Witt.
Love you,
Bobby and Gayle
