.WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for Tuesday April 30, By Marty Martel.
Just want each of you to know that I did complete my procedure this morning and I thank you for your prayers, as the procedure was faster than expected, and I ask you to keep me in your prayers as I wait for the results. I will let each of you know. God Bless All of You.
I will not be issuing any press releases tomorrow or Thursday out of respect, and in honor of the passing of my friend George Jones, but I will send out my prayer line.
I ask you to keep in your thoughts and prayers my dearest friend Jerri Mott as she will undergo surgery tomorrow in one of America’s great clinics. Her surgery will be in the morning and I know that with our prayer lines that are worldwide, there is no way that our Blessed Lord can help but hear us and touch the surgeon’s with his hands to allow them to make Jerri’s surgery complete and successful, and that she will have a speedy recovery. Thank you. Also pray for her hubby Clarence as he will be with her to help her through this important surgery – Marty
Once again I will ask you to put one of my dear friends on the Prayer Line. His name is Len Wilkins and he is in a wheel chair and will never get out. He was injured by a falling limb when we had our ice storm and he was paralyzed from the waist down. He drives and does about everything but he is having problems. I know he is very religious and loves the Lord so if you would put him on it? I would appreciate it. Thanks Cliff or Red Also I will say one for you.
Marty, Please ad my sister “Wanda Austin” to the prayer list. She was admitted t o the hospital with kidney disease in the final stages. Doctors told her she will either do dialysis or go home and call hospice. She has had so many health problems but is a real trooper, she is my rock and has such strong faith. When I call her to check on her she always lifts me up. Praying for God’s will in this situation – Jeannette Davis
