Dear Friends

I haven't been able to blog much at all this last week. I'm been very busy with some community involvement. I miss visiting you all and will be by to visit as soon as I can.

I'm asking for prayer right now. I'm being dragged into the middle of a very bad situation of a personal nature that I can't go into. It's a strong spiritual battle that has been going on for years. There is no answer except for God's intervention. I need as much prayer over this as you can give me please.

Thank you.

Edie

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind ~ Luke 10:27

May His Word and His Will and His Comfort & Peace be made REAL to you my friend!!!

LisaShaw said...

I speak, pray and declare GOD's will shall be done in the Name of Jesus. Praise the Lord! May He lead you -- give you the words and the wisdom to handle the situation. May His Spirit be in control and may the outcome honor HIM. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might dear sister.

I will pray again for you each day. May our prayers be a prayer shawl around you and all concerned.

Bless you.

Father, we pray for divine intervention, peace, restoration, and healing. We pray that you would protect our precious friend..please bind up the enemy and thwart his plans against her and others involved in this situation. We pray, Lord that you will do whatever it takes to get each person involved into your good will and purpose for their lives..please mold each of them into the people YOU created them to be..In Jesus precious and Holy Name...amen

Proverbs 27:19 said...

Father God, thank You so much for the humble heart that Edie has. It is because of it that she is able to ask for prayer. She obviously knows the power of communicating with You, Lord.

Lord God, we do not know the situation specifically, however, that is not a hindrance for us to lay it before You. You already know Lord and You didn't ask Edie to exploit herself, just humble herself and know that only her Creator can and will end this thing that has troubled her for years.

She is now free of it Lord God because of You. In Christs' name I pray, Amen!

smooches,
Larie

My Father,

I pray to You today, lifting Edie up and her situation up to You. You know her, You know her heart, You know this situation.

I ask for Your guidance and wisdom imparted to Edie through this time and her dealing with this situation.

I pray for Your peace to come upon her and give her rest from her burden.

In Your Son's Name I pray,

Amen

Mary Moss said...

Edie, I will continue to lift you in my prayers.

Blessings, dear friend.

Melanie said...

Precious Father,

I thank You for the precious blessing of Edie's Christ-centered heart, and I thank You for the rich gifts with which You have endowed her.

Dear Lord, You know the spiritual battle that is surrounding her, and I pray for You to strengthen her according to Your Word and to lead her according to Your Spirit.

As another dear friend recently reminded me, even Daniel experienced a delay in response to his prayers because of intense warfare in the spiritual realm (reference Daniel 10:10-11:1). Lord, surround Edie with chariots of fire (reference 2 Kings 6:17) and give her a fresh anointing of Your angelic guard.

Strengthen Edie, precious Lord, and uphold her with Your righteous right hand (reference Isaiah 41:10).

I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Your perfect Son and our precious Savior. Amen.

Angela said...

Praying for you, Edie! You have everything you need for victory in this situation already! Love you, friend!

Debbie said...

Oh Edie, I'm thinking of you and praying for you. Know that your sisters in Christ are here for you.

Chatty Kelly said...

I will be praying for you. I'm sorry your struggling!

By the way, you left me a comment and said an email was coming my way. I never got it. Don't know if you got busy, or the internet ate it. But since we've had missing emails in the past, thought I'd let you know that I'm not ignoring you...I haven't received anything.

Debra said...

I'm praying, Edie, and will continue to do so...
Love, Debra

I will be lifting you up. Battles are won on our knees. You have many warriors with you. B

From the Heart said...

Edie, I agree with all the prayers that the other ladies have prayed. The Bible says where two or three agree on any one thing it shall be done. I will also continue to pray. We have had to fight spiritual warfare in our family several times and only God can cast out the enemy that is causing your problems in the name of Jesus.

Dear Father, I pray that they eyes of Edie's heart may be enlightened so that hse will know what is the hope of His calling what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. Ephesians 1:18,19
Praying.

Yolanda said...

Lord Jesus,

Edie is perhaps battle weary and needs us to hold her arms up like Aaron & Hur for Moses. Lord, let her know that she is loved, and that You care for her. That the peace entering now comes from You alone. Love on her Lord, and be in the midst of this pain fighting the battle before them. Thank You Father God. Amen.

debrah said...

Heavenly Father I ask that you bless Edie with Peace, your peace that passes all understanding. I ask that you give her knowledge, understanding and wisdom. I pray that she receive your counsel. That all that concerns her- she will lay at your feet. I ask that you protect her and bring her to restoration and rest in you. I ask that you refresh her and strengthen her. Bless her and the work of her hands. That your love will rule and guide her. I ask that you keep her in your perfect peace. I ask all this in the name of Jesus our Lord and Savior.

Dear Friend,
Edie, I'm lifting you up in prayer. Phil. 4:6-7 Do not be anxious aboutanything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,will guard your hearts and yourminds in Christ.

Grace 2 U,
natalie

TRUTHSHARER said...

Father God - my sister needs the armor of prayer warriors behind her this day. Now I know why You have put her on my prayer list for the last 3 days. Jesus - You are the God of restoration and in Your Name I declare this over the situation at hand. LORD - You know the circumstances - but allow Edie to focus on Your strength and Your power to restore this - whatever it might be.

Keep her in Your Word where she can get direction for the battle details. Keep her close to You on her knees - to fight the good fight of faith. The enemy is fierce
but our God is VICTORIOUS! We claim victory over this now - In Jesus' Name! Amen!

Choosing JOY,
Stephanie

Beverlydru said...

I join my prayers with you and our sisters for discernment, wisdom, strength and victory. I thank God that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Amen.

You are loved.

Lord,

You know that the battles for which there are "no answers" are the toughest ones for us to endure on earth. We pray, we walk with You, we cry to You, we search Your Word continually for answers. Yet, some days, it feels as if there is "no answer."

God, You know that Edie has been faithful in all these things. You know that her heart grieves as this situation presents itself again, and You understand the depth of the hurt, the pain and the suffering. She knows that Your Son endured all of this and more, but it is still a difficult path to follow.

Lord, we ask You to uphold Edie in this time. To keep her faithful to You and to not heed any other call that may be influencing her stand right now. We pray that she will know Your strength, Your perseverance, Your encouragement, Your comfort, Your guidance, and, most importantly, Your love.

Continue to walk with her today. Be the Lord over this situation that finds her "in the middle" that You and Your goodness would prevail. In Jesus' name we pray. AMEN
