WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for yesterday, today and tomorrow by Marty Martel..
Marty my friend Jerry Naylor lost his oldest child yesterday. I would appreciate you asking everyone to pray for him and his family. His son Geoff was burned over 100% of his body in an tragic accident and was unable to survive. You may or may not know Jerry, but he was former lead singer for the Crickets after the untimely death of Buddy Holly. He now lives near me in Oregon. His son resided in California, he leaves his wife Lisa and son Trevor.
If they have an extra prayer, perhaps they would say one for me. On August 17th I gave my last Professional concert in Carthage, Texas at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, my career started in Texas and ended there 62 years later! Upon returning from Texas I was hospitalized for two weeks (I came close), as my emphysema had gotten worse. I feel better and getting stronger each new day, but can’t perform anymore…can’t fly and taking any trip would be extremely difficult, due to the oxygen I now require. So I will continue writing my songs and my books. I now have a children’s book on Amazon.com titled, The Graham Cracker Kid and the Calico Girl, and I will receive copies of my new memoir next Wednesday (it’s already on Amazon as an eBook and one can order the printed copy there as well) it’s titled, A Road Less Traveled…I’m very proud of both books and have 4 new ones I’m working on.Thank you for your daily Thought of the Day and Prayers and your friendship over the years. It’s always uplifting to me and helps me start my day off right! Again thanks. Your Pal, Tommy (T.O.)
I have just been informed that our dear friend Gene Kennedy, who is VP of our R.O.P.E. organization, is asking for prayers for his daughter who has been in a serious automobile accident. She is undergoing operations and I ask you to please stop and pray to our Blessed Lord that He will touch her with His healing hand and heal her with His love and blessings, and that He will watch over Gene and family to keep them in His comfort and love. She is a young lady who recently married and I know Gene and family are going through this difficult time of worry as she undergoes medical attention.Please pray that the Master Surgeon will guide the hands of her doctors and their staff to heal her body. He is our lifeline in all that we do – Marty
To Be Led by God’s Gifts: Heavenly Father, for the words of faith shared in devotionals, From the pulpit, in the sanctuary, in prayer, in song, That color my life so rich: I give thanks, and pray That they will enrich my journey of faith, sharing a bit of grace with other earlier saints. For the sacrifice, the example, the gift of your Son; Who came to earth and lived among us, who gave us words to guide us, Who infused the law with Spirit and taught us the beauty of change within our hearts; For the loving way Christ showed us, I give thanks, And pray that His words may lead me to live life as your servant, As your disciple, today and forever – Amen
