Some Page Editing

Gary has requested that I put up a prayer list so that we can more easily exchange the name of those who are in special need of prayer. If you will notice to your left, underneath the picture of us at the Fellowship Meeting, it is now up. I'm sure that I will continue to give further information as new names are added. Hopefully we will be able to find a way to do it, where anyone can post a Prayer Request there, but until then please feel free to let us know, and we will update it.

A note on one of the names up there. Parker Allen is the son of one of my teachers in school. He's a bit younger than me, and was in a bad wreak last week near Auburn. They still aren't sure what happened, what they do know is that the weather was bad and some how the car ended up wrapped around a utility pole. This happened last Wed (3/5), on Tuesday he came out of the coma, and his parents have been able to talk with him a bit. There are many things to worry about, he is on a ventilator and can't breathe on his own, they are unsure of the level of brain damage that may be involved, and they are having some problems with medication. HOWEVER, his leg (which was mostly shattered) seems to be on the mend, better than they expected in a week, and he is no longer in a coma. His mother has remarked, that they can feel the presence of the Lord there, and they are greatful for all the people praying for them and Parker. So if you would, please keep them in your prayers.

Sister Sandy in our church used to have a prayer list going on her blog, and I loved it. I will definitely turn to yours often. (Great idea, Gary!) Thanks for telling us about Parker. I will definitely be praying for his family and him!

I think this is a great idea. One sweet day when I finally get the OSBN website finished, it has a prayer request feature on it. People can make requests at will and sign up to receive them automatically via email. I look forward to seeing that used.
