thankful thursday

i got an update about my friend jessica's dad. here is a copy of the email i got:

Just to update you on how God is working in this situation...
Jessica's dad had emergency surgery which, praise God, was successful. He is staying in the hospital for continued observation as he recovers. Pray for God to open her dad's eyes and heart as he will be visited by Pastor Bob in the next few days.
Jessica wonders today why it is these times of tragedy that we feel the immediate need to speak of Him, I told her these are eye openers that God wants us to act on, and Praise God He has given this man another chance to seek Him.
Let's continue to pray for Jessica as she has unsaved family that I'm sure she is feeling conviction to speak truth to.

today i'm thankful to be a part of the body of Christ. how awesome is it that we have an opportunity to pray for and be an encouragement to our brothers and sisters in Christ, even those we may not even know! yesterday i was told that she could totally feel everyone's prayers.

thank you all for praying!!
