A very short post this morning. Wednesday was Beloved Husband’s schedule blood filtering, today is my scheduled MRI.

Yesterday we had a small delay in BH’s pheresis process – an occlusion (blockage of some kind) in his graft kept his blood from flowing. I posted a quick prayer request on Facebook, and there were instant responses.

A community of brothers and sisters in Christ joined me in prayer. With each response, my comfort level increased, knowing the best help was at hand:

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  (Romans 8:26 KJV)

As David, I know I do not deserve God’s grace:

Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness. And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.  (Psalms 143:1-2 KJV)

Thank God He provided that justification:

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (Romans 5:1 KJV)

My prayer partners attend a wide variety of church styles. In many ways we differ on doctrine. The one thing we hold in common, no questions asked, is the full knowledge that Jesus, Christ, died for us and through Him we are entitled to approach God’s throne with our supplications. By Him, we are comforted.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7 KJV)

May you know this peace and share in our joyful comfort.

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
