Pray for Jeff and Holly Ward

Hi, this is Odie checking on this cold Friday morning. I posted an update from Dad yesterday click here to read it I will wait for you to return.

I am up early and headed to an appointment to check up with my eye Doctor. I am reminded  of the morning I woke up to total blindness in my left eye. My world was suddenly turned upside down. The fear and uncertainty left me feeling helpless but God stepped in and carried me through a very long 9 days. The people of God went to their knees and fought a spiritual battle and after 9 days I began receiving my healing. Once again I Thank God for moving on my behalf and giving me full vision! My heart is still overflowing with gratitude. 

I am carrying a heavy burden for some dear friends. I would love it if some of you would join me in shouldering their load. I am living proof that prayer works when God's people bind together. I am thankful to pray on behalf of a brother and sister that are fighting their own battle. 

Bro. Jeff and Sis. Holly Ward attend our home church at Dryden Road Pentecostal Church. Holly's family was good friends of ours during my young years. Holly babysat me a lot and became my hero. I wanted to be like Holly. She never let our 4 year age gap or my handicap get in the way she was and is a true friend. 

When Holly met and married Jeff I gained another friend.  The friendship continued as their family grew to a daughter and 2 sons. Time and miles have separated us a lot over the years but it is so good to know I have them as my friends. 
They have had been a big encouragement and influence in my life. 

You might remember the wedding I blogged about last month, that was their daughter and son in law's wedding

The Ward family has had more than, what seems like, their share of sickness and hardtimes. I wish I could take it completely away from them. I do not have their answers but I can pray to the One who is in control!!

I received a text update last night and I felt impressed to ask you all, my blog friends to help me pray for this precious couple and their family! They need a miracle that only God can give. I am praying for miracles that leave doctors knowing that the Good Physician has been at work!

Thanks for reading I hope you have a fabulous Friday.
