A Special Request

Here I am, at 12:30 AM, writing to ask a special request of all you special bloggy friends. I am very saddened because of circumstances that are too great for me to control, but I am asking for some heartfelt prayers from all of you. For privacy reasons I won't share the specifics, but I do want to share with you about my older brother. He is not saved, and is living a life for himself. It is very, very painful for my family and me to see my brother living such an ungodly life and to hear some of the things he has said.

My heart has been so burdened for him lately...please help me storm the gates of Heaven for him! Pray that I will be a witness to him and won't be afraid to speak truth. Pray that his heart will be softened. Pray that I will not show anger toward him- I struggle with this a lot. Above all, pray that his heart will be turned to Christ, and that I will be able to say the right words to him so that he can see the love of my wonderful Savior.

Thank you SO much,

Sara

My Saviour, He can move the mountains, my God is Mighty to save, He is Mighty to save. Forever, Author of salvation, He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave.

I'll be glad to share your burden. It is only the grace of God that makes us to differ. He is a prayer hearing & prayer answering God! I'm encouraged when I think of how God can save even those we give up on - Think of Saul - changed to Paul!.. God can save even those we may think are beyond hope. Be assured of my prayers. In the Bonds of Christ,
