Would appreciate your prayers for Judi's Mom - Eleanor. Mom is 93 years old and has lived on her own since the Lord called Dad home in 2005. She has been in the same home for 61 years and we, her 4 children feel that it is time to move Mom closer to one of us. The Lord has provided a beautiful condo (the owners are strong believers in Christ) for us to move Mom to. It is hard for anyone but especially one who has been in the same place for 61 years to feel confident in taking on such a big venture. Mom will be 5 minutes from both my brothers which will be good for her and only 2 hours away from us. Pray for peace up to and during the move and that she will settle in nicely to her new surroundings. That the Lord will clear her mind and that she will know beyond a doubt that this was the right thing to do.

    Thank you for holding my Mom, Eleanor up in prayer. They will be doing the procedure - ERCP at 9:30 Tuesday morning. Hopefully by tomorrow afternoon we should hear the outcome of that procedure. We understand that it will not only give them a diagnosis but can also be therapeutic. I spoke with her this afternoon and she sound calm but tired. I told her that there are many praying, she was very thankful to know that she was being held up in prayer.

    Please continue to hold my (Judi) Mom, Eleanor Beveridge up in prayer. Yesterday my brother took her to Dorchester Hospital due to stomach pain - something she has been dealing with off and on since August. They did a CAT Scan and saw what appeared to be a stone from the gallbladder blocking the duct to the Pancreas, which they then termed as Pancreatitis. Late this afternoon they moved Mom from Dorchester Hospital to Easton Hospital for an ERCP on Tuesday. Once they locate where the blockage is they will probably then schedule laparoscopy surgery for Wednesday. More than likely she will be hospitalized until next weekend. All this could change from minute to minute! The Lord is able to walk my 93 year old Mom through surgery and I am trusting for a great outcome for her. Mom loves the Lord with all her heart and is always willing to share her faith and so I've been praying that all the glory would go to the Lord. What a great reminder Lon spoke to us this morning on our power in prayer.

    Join us in praying for my 93 year old Mom. Had a call from my brother that they are at the emergency with my Mom awaiting word from a CAT Scan that was to be done at 10:30 p.m. this evening. They are thinking it could be her gallbladder, she has had abdominal pain off and on for the past three weeks. So appreciate all those holding my Mom -Eleanor Beveridge up in prayer.

    So very thankful for the continued prayers going forth on my Mom, Eleanor's behalf. Just talked to her and she sound good but as we talked she again told me she is so very lonely. Wishes she hadn't decided to make the move and misses her home church very much. My prayer for her is that the Lord takes her focus off of self and that He gives her someone she can be a witness and light to. We plan on going over on Monday to spend the day with her, praying that that time is sweet and that we are able to fill her tank with our love and attention.

    Thank you for your prayers on behalf of my precious Mom. On Thursday of this past week Mom (Eleanor) arrived safely with my sister to her new home. They finished the decorating and unpacking throughout the weekend and Mom seems to be adjusting. Mom is still experiencing some forgetfulness and lack of clarity of mind which we are all praying God will clear. I know at the age of 93 there will be some of this! Mom has some "fear" for lack of a better word about going out on her own, I'm okay with her staying put as I don't think she should be driving. Pray that the Lord fills her with contentment and love for her new surroundings.

    Yesterday we spent the day unpacking my Mom's belongings into her new beautiful surroundings. Mom will be arriving sometime this afternoon with my sister. Praying that this will be a wonderful time for her, that the sadness of leaving her home of 61 years will be replaced with the joy of being closer to family. Please continue to pray that the Lord brings refreshment to her confused mind from all the pressure of this move and that the Lord would continue to keep her strong and healthy.

  • Update | Posted on October 13, 2014

    Tomorrow is packing day for my Mom's home of 61 years. Wednesday we will move her into her new home in Maryland. Pray that as my Mom leaves her home tonight that there would be a wonderful feeling of peace flood her and that she will be reminded that her memories are always with her. That when she arrives at her new home on Thursday she will be happy, loving her new surroundings and looking forward to being close to family. Pray for the four siblings as we minister to Mom and get her settled in.

    My Mom had her ERCP procedure this morning. It took about an hour and a half. They were able to remove the gallstone that was blocking the duct, they found some severe irritation in the lover esophagus. They will treat this with medication and if she tolerates things well, there will be no immediate need for the gallbladder to be removed. I've been praying that there would be no need for surgery as I really don't want her to have to go through that. They will probably keep her another day be for they release her. Pray that the Lord would restore her strength as she hasn't been out of bed for the past 4 days and that she will heal and not need to have surgery. Thank you once again for standing in the gap in prayer for my Mom. It's been tough watching her struggle with the move and then this health issue as she has always been so healthy and strong.

Thank you to everyone who sent up prayers for spiritual intervention in my studies. Overcoming daunting or seemingly impossible situations is not my strong suit. Please continue to pray for the Lord to place people and tools in my path to shed light in areas where I need deeper and more practical understanding of course material. I trust the Lord and believe that any knowledge gained is a blessing. Also, please pray for my family and friends who are encountering issues with aging parents and siblings. That the Lord will bring bountiful peace, joy, and resolve to our circumstances. I am feeling a little depressed at this time and am in need of joy and interal peace. Finally, pray for me to move in wisdom and to take action necessary to realize a healthier diet and exercise choices, that the holy spirit will move me to get on the right track and provide encouragement to keep me there. And that all of the blessings received will go towards His glory. Thanks again sisters and brothers in Christ.

Hi there, I am stuck in my life, time is moving so fast that I do not have any control. I am in job and I am doing it to convince my love's parents but I am not sure whether they will agree on our marriage. She is love of my life. She made me what I am today. She is my heart, my happiness. She is my relief, she is my energy. She is my sunrise, she is the only light. Friends, please pray for me. I really need your encouragement. Many Thanks.
