Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/30/20

Dear God, you have been merciful to man since the creation of the world.  There are so many things that we have done that go against your word, but because you are a loving Father that cares deeply about his children, you have forgiven us and set us free from any condemning charges.  Father, I ask for mercy on behalf of those who are lost.  Let your mercy fill their hearts that they may be able to know that you’re the true living God who was and is to come.  Help them to know that it is only in surrendering themselves to you that they will find real rest and unconditional love.  In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

O Lord, thank you for your unconditional love.  It is because of this great love that  I  live in the freedom that Jesus has given me.  Thank you for opening my eyes to the truth that is found in your word. Lord, thank you for rescuing me from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of your Son Jesus.  But Father, I am so heartbroken because some of my family and friends have not accepted your son Jesus as their Lord and savior.  Use me as your vessel to go and preach to them the gospel so that they can become part of your family.  In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

GRACE   noun: the free and unmerited favor or beneficence of God

Jesus forgave a thief dangling on a cross, knowing full well the thief had converted out of plain fear. That thief would never study the Bible, never attend synagogue or church, and never make amends to those he had wronged. He simply said, “Jesus remember me,” and Jesus promised, “Today you will be with me in paradise.” It was another shocking reminder that grace does not depend on what we have done for God, but rather what God has done for us.

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/27/20

It can happen in the blink of an eye! What, you ask? Well, pretty much anything. So, live and love in each moment, because you never know what might happen in the next…

Remember to pray for those who need a touch from God.

Take a listen to this kid! Down syndrome doesn’t hold him back.

Don’t let anything hold you back either! No excuses!

Romans 8:31   What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/26/20

Someone died today. In fact, many people died today…over ~150K people worldwide (avg. daily deaths). I wonder how many of those people were welcomed into Heaven. And, I wonder how many more would have been welcomed in had I prayed for their souls to be touched by God…

Father, I ask for mercy on behalf of those who are lost. Let your mercy fill their hearts that they may be able to know that you’re the true living God who was and is to come. Help them to know that it is only in surrendering themselves to you that they will find real rest and unconditional love.

Ryan and I will continue to pray this prayer daily, and hope you will join us. Our hope is that, from here on out, no person is turned away at the gate of Heaven…

Two weeks went really slowly…compared to everyday life which passes in the blink of an eyelid. After being away for two weeks on business, Janine finally returned home at around 6:30 P.M. I check in on Ryan and his new nurse, and see they are doing well. I’m in bed by 8:30, and completely unaware of the world by 8:31…

Woke up this morning ready to go another two weeks, but hope I don’t have to anytime soon…

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/23/20

We pray for miracles, and they happen. Our agency sent a new nurse to train today, and tomorrow she’ll be taking over the afternoon shift vacancy/ies. And, one of the noc nurses is coming in tonight to cover (again) the shift for the nurse who’s out sick. So, our nursing shifts are, once again, whole. Praise God!

Speaking of whole: I’d really love to see God make Ryan whole soon. Let’s continue to pray for that.

And, do not forget to pray for the salvation of those who have yet to be saved.

Ephesians 6:18   And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

That about sums it up!

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/22/20

I’m grateful for our weekend noc nurse that filled in to watch Ryan last night, so I could get some much needed rest. It’s a good thing she did, because the regular noc nurse has called in sick for the next couple of days, because her husband caught what she has/had, and she’s afraid of bringing anything in that might harm Ryan. I’m okay with it…for sure. That means, I’ll be up for the next two days straight…something I’m quite familiar with…unless a real miracle happens; which I never rule out.

Keep praying God will open your eyes to see/recognize the miracles that happen around you every day. It’s amazing when He allows us to see what He’s doing!

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/21/20

Ryan was awake all night again last night. Don’t know why, but somehow his wires have gotten crossed. Fortunately, he’s been comfortable, and there doesn’t seem to be anything bothering him…too much, anyway.

It’s raining, so perhaps the change in weather has something to do with it. Who knows? Oh, that’s right! God does!

Psalm 147:5   Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.

Lord, Please grant my son a good night’s sleep, that he may be rested and have much energy to praise you in the morning! Oh, and please heal him completely as well. Amen
