.WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for This day February 11, By Marty Martel.

This is a sad, sad day in our Catholic religion. It is frightening to have Our Holy Father have to resign. There is much discourse in the Vatican and across the world and I send my vote for the new Holy Father to be Cardinal Timothy Dolan, to break the hold that there cannot be a Pope elected from the United States. This would change a lot of negative things in our the Catholic religion that need changing. Please keep in your thoughts and prayers Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, that he will have good health and be able to help guide whoever will be the newly elected POPE. Also ask the Blessed Lord to guide the Cardinals to make a choice of someone who is younger and who can carry on the office in a strong fashion, but also that the new Pontiff will take charge and make changes in those who need not be in the Vatican because of their thinking process that has caused internal problems in the Catholic religion.

Marty, I would like to thank everyone for the prayers that went up for my daughter. Her surgery went well and she is recovering great. God is so good!!!!! Jeannette

Marty, Please continue the prayers for Jimmy Holt as he is still in ICU and on a ventilator as of yesterday afternoon. Thanks Jeannette

Marty, this request comes from a co-worker, Sandra Bumgarner, regarding her son… Ralph Please help me pray for Stephen. He is in Richmond, Virginia attending school for training before he deploys in May. He had passed out in his hotel room Sunday morning due to pain with a kidney stone. Stephen has a history of these about every two years. He called his instructor who took him to the emergency room immediately. They confirmed that he does have kidney stones. They gave him some pain med and told him to drink a lot of fluids. He is scheduled to complete his school on Wednesday if he is able to attend as scheduled. After completing the class he then has a 9 hour drive back to Georgia. PLEASE, PLEASE pray that he passes these stones before he is on the road and absolutely before he deploys in May. Thank you in advance for the prayers. No matter how old your children are, no matter where they are, they are always in your heart and when they hurt you as a parent hurt for and with them. Hope each of you have a good day! J

A NEW CHANCE:  There’s so much to be thankful for as we start this brand-new year. We have a God who loves us so and will free us from all fear.Seasons come and seasons go, sharing their own true beauty, While Heaven’s sun, moon, and stars perform their accustomed duty. Every day will be a gift of love; A new chance to smell each flower. So, as we travel through the year, give God the glory He’s the powerM. Elaine Fowser
