Dear Prayer Warriors,
Please continue to keep my sweet mom (Elynor Bellenfant) in your prayers as she prepares to go be with Our Lord……her body & mind are tired and worn out! She is a true Christian and has gone to church/Sunday School her entire life but Bless her heart she is scared of dying. It breaks my heart to see her so afraid. We have assured her that my Daddy & her parents are waiting with God to welcome her to a beautiful place where she will have no more pain. At 86 yrs old, more friends are in Heaven than on this Earth. We have given her “permission” to go and have assured her that her 3 girls and families will be fine. She has NEVER been left alone since Jan. 1, 2013. Around the clock care 24/7 and we have been by her side constantly at NHC Rehab since her surgery. She begs us to stay with her and we do! Please pray for PEACE within her sweet mind and may she make this transition from Earth to Heaven peacefully.
Another patient that needs our prayers:
Rick Swagger- a 52 yr old newlywed who found out 2 wks after their honeymoon that he has leukemia. After his 2nd round of chemo, he developed toxic poison throughout his body. In 43 days, he has been in drug induced comas, had a stroke & multiple seizures. After moving to a Nashville Rehab, he fell out of wheelchair but luckily didn’t break anything! His sweet little wife (who is new to our area) has kept in contact with me through text. I feel God is definitely got his hands on this couple and has placed us in each other’s lives. I met her in a waiting room corner weeping continuously. She was scared and alone. My mom’s minister came into the room to check on things. I introduced them to each other. He went to his ICU room and prayed with them. It breaks my heart to see them in this situation when they should be enjoying life to the fullest together. Her name is Shelly. Please keep them both in your prayers.
There are so many others that want to stay anonymous but God KNOWS who they are!
Please add us to your prayer chains and church prayer lists!
May God Bless you today and EVERYDAY!

Katie was killed in an accident Sunday morning here in Smyrna. Katie left 2 small children. They have set up a trust fund for her funeral expenses and care for the children. She was the best friend of my granddaughter, Brittany Magness, (whom I raised from 14 months old after her mother and daddy were killed in an accident=(they were 18 yrs old), then in 2010 Brittany also lost her 20-MO old,(Kaylee) by drowning in the pool. She has been through a lot in her 25 years. Pray for her comfort, strength and her emotional status. Thanks, Florine
Prayer for Those Who Have Turned Away
Grant, O Lord, peace, love and speedy reconciliation to your people
Whom You have redeemed with your precious blood.
Make your presence known to those who have turned away from You and do not seek You,
So that none of them may be lost, but all may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,
So that everyone, in true love and harmony, O long-suffering Lord,
May praise your all holy Name.
Name: Kathleen “Katie” Marie Davenport Died: June 15, 2014
