Deirdre can do many things from her cell phone on MySpace but not groups so here is her last update sent to me....
Date: Sep 26, 2008 7:04 PM
sure, there's soooo many on my friends list that I can't remember who
is in the Prayer group & who isn't..... I can also accept friend
requests from my phone.... so anyone who wishes to get a hold of me can
either message me or friend me & then we can talk. btw, Yesterday
Daniel begged me not to go thru with the divorce, & made all kinds
of promises, but I have heard all this before. He needs to come to God
on his own, not because it will make me happy or keep us married. I had
to tell him again today that we are getting divorced & his whole
attitude changed again from being sweet & loving to having an
attitude because he wasn't getting his way which just shows that this
is the right decision. He's only agreeing to counseling to appease me
& get me back into the house so he can go back to being the way he
is. It's hard, especially when he's being sweet, but I know this is
what I have to do. Just let everyone know to please keep praying for
both of us separately. Me for strength & wisdom & for him to
truly find God. Thanks again for being such a great friend, even when I
don't keep in touch like I should. Much love in Christ, Deirdre
you believe in the power of prayer, I wanted to give you the
opportunity to join with us in a prayer outreach down the Ganges. I
know this has nothing to do with Baghdad or the troops, but it's a
short opportunity for serious impact in a very needy place. If this
does not strike a cord with you then please just disregard the rest of
this, and thanks you so much for your faithfulness with the Baghdad
Just as we were about to send this out there was
a deadly Bomb Blast just a few miles from where we live. Another
reminder of the violent spirits that intimidate and control the people
who live in India. Please join us in "Taking the Land" through prayer
as we move out on this Ganges outreach.
We are asking
intercessors to join us in prayer as a small team of believers make a 3
day boat trip down the Ganges from Allahabad to Varanasi. There will be
worship, intercession, and outreach along this remote stretch of river,
home to 299 Unreached People Groups.
The team leaves Sunday night USA time and you can get more info at:
will need to signup for a password to access the many prayer tools we
have there for this outreach, including a slide show, live prayers from
the team, daily prayer guide, etc.
If God puts it in your heart we would live to have you join us.
Blessings from Delhi,
Baghdad Prayer Patrol

has been suffering with a terrible marriage, an abusive husband, and
very bad friends... She kept trying to fix her marriage (her Christian
friends kept insisting it was what God wanted for her, she couldn't
leave, even if he was increasingly abusive to her) and in the end her
husband attacked and almost killed her... Shes been recovering, she
wouldn't reveal much detail, just little pieces... One thing I do
remember her telling me was she prayed for the day she could look in
the mirror again and not cry :o( poor thing...
I got this message

put her on your prayer chain, giving only the info you deem necessary

sure that you already know that she was shot four times and that they
could not remove one of the bullets because of its location so close to
the spinal column. The bullet shifted and she was taken to surgery
this morning at six am. It is now six PM and a second team is going in
the operating room. They still have been unable to get the bullet as
she keeps coding and each time the bullet moves from their efforts to
revive her. She is worn out at this point and losing too much blood,
far too quickly.
I am sure that she will not be too upset with my
asking her friends to say a quick prayer for her as she needs all the
help she can get if she is going to pull through.
I have no
desire to upset her friends I am just taking it on faith that more
prayer is better and since she trusts you or you wouldn't be on this
page I felt it would be all right to let you know. Please do not share
her condition with the people from her page as I know that she would
not want that.
Thank you for caring about her

am asking that everyone please say a prayer for me, my son, and my co
workers. I am an office manager at a furniture store, and due to fire
damages, my store has been closed, and we do not know when or if the
store will reopen. I am a single parent, and I just recently graduated
from college, but I don't have enough experience to easily find another
job. Right now I am working part time doing collections, and I have had
to ask my family to help me get winter clothes for my son. My coworkers
also support their families, and this is a very trying time. Please
find that myself and my co workers make it through this incredibly hard
time with our faith stronger than ever. Thank you for your time.

UPDATE ON MY MOMMA - AND NEEDING PRAYER FOR US - SEPT 27
AM BACK OVER MY MOTHER'S HOUSE, SHE HAS GOING TO THE BX - SHOPPING, AND
SHE STARTED TO HAVE PAIN IN HER RIGHT KNEE, AND SOME DROVE HER HOME,
SHE IS IN BED.
PRAYER : INNER HEALING, AND THAT GOD WILL TAKE AWAY HER PRIDE ~
PRAYER ALSO FOR MY DADDY, HIS BACK HURTS, HAS AN PINCH NERVE.
PRAYER FOR ME, FOR I WILL BE ENDURING PATIENCE
THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE~
hold me up in prayer. I have been having severe neck pain and went to
the doctor today. He referred me to a spine specialist. He wants me
to see him next Monday when he comes to town. The specialist's office
is supposed to call me about the appointment but has not yet. I have
had a problem with my neck for 20 years, but it wasn't painful until
recently. The first time I went to an orthopedic surgeon about my back
they also scanned my neck and that's when I found out about it. At
that time the doctor asked me if it was hurt and was surprised when I
told him that it didn't. Today the doctor was concerned about what he
found. The neck pain is the reason that some nights I do not work on
the prayer until really late and can't spent too much time on it when I
do. I have been trying to basically ignore it until last night when I
got up and nearly fell over due to the pain and dizziness. :-(
Thanks for your friendship and prayers. You are such a blessing, all of you. HUGZ!!

Current mood: exhausted
Sean was supposed to have surgery this upcoming week, but now his
specialist is saying he's booked until the of October/November. Sean's
family is trying to find another specialist who is open and can do the
surgery soon. Sean is still in alot of pain and that just seems to
long to wait do to bad he's feeling even with the medications. They
increased his pain medicine and he's sleeping more but no feedback on
him yet for it is really helping. Usually each day I just hear about
how bad he hurts. Pray for a good specialist and that Sean can have his
surgery soon and be better. Then after he is better from this tumor
they can go back and get him strong again to focus on the other brain
tumor and start treatment again. Thank you all for your prayers and
support. It is ALWAYS greatly appreciated.
I did not hear anything from Tanner's Mom yesterday and I figured that
they had a really full day, so I waited until today to get the update
over the phone on how Tanner is doing and his schedule for therapy at
the Rehab Center.
He will be going 2 times this upcoming week
for Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. The Doctors said he really
did not need to do the Physical Therapy since he is doing so good with
moving around and his physical strength.
Tanner has a LOT of
follow up visits with his doctors this upcoming week. About 6 visits
all together. He has to go back to see the jaw specialist then to see
the Halo specialist, then to see the head trauma specialist, then to
see his regular physician, you get the picture.
So, he's got a long week ahead with follow ups and also doing his therapy at the Rehab Center.
We know you are going to do great Tanner, so just hang in there and continue to heal!
everyone know that he has a very busy and long schedule this upcoming
week and may not feel up to visits. Please call in advance if you are
wanting to visit with him. Tanner and the family will let you know if
he is available. We have a feeling that he is going to be pretty wiped
out this week from all the therapy and doctors visits and just having
to ride in the car to get from place to place.
His feeding tube
is scheduled to come out on October 20th which is a very quick
procedure. The hole that is in his throat where the trach tube was is
still open and hopefully will heal up soon. He just has the band aid
patch over the hole and it is very important that he takes it easy and
not talk too much so that it will close up as soon as possible. He is
continuing to eat soft foods and I'm sure that once his jaw is healed
and he is able to chew, pizza is going to be on the menu! He is really
enjoying chocolate shakes and lots of mashed potatoes!
Tanner, you are doing a great job and continue to amaze us all! Keep being strong and soon all this will come to pass!
also remember, that Tanner is checking this Caring Bridge website, so
writing to him on the guest-book is a great way to send messages and
let him know what's up and to say Hello to him! He continues to be
amazed at how many people have been supporting him through this hard
We LOVE you TANNER! You are and have been such an inspiration to us all!
will post any updates that I get over the next few days and thank you
again everyone for all of your encouragement and support and prayers
and love that you have given to Tanner and our family! I really do
think that the big party is going to happen in the not to distant
Love and hugs to you all,
Aunt Suzi / Sasha
As for my mom, here is an email dad sent this morning:
hate to report this, since last week it appeared Ermal was doing so
well, gaining strength and feeling relatively well. But, since last
Sunday, she has gotten progressively worse. She has been bedfast since
Wednesday morning. She had developed severe congestion and cold
symptoms, and completely lost use of her legs. As of yesterday, she
hasn't been able to feed herself. I called in the Hospice nurse
yesterday and she started her on morphine sulphate low dose to help the
breathing and atropine sulphate to reduce mucus production. She is
sleeping almost constantly and I can't get her to drink or eat. I'll
confer again with the Nurse this afternoon to see what else we can do,
given the circumstances. Dr. Shah and Dr. Sekar both said they can't
provide any more chemo or radiation treatments and all that can be done
now is to make Ermal as comfortable as possible..... I'm still hoping
these cold symptoms improve and she regains her strength soon. Keep the
prayers coming for Ermal and Cameron. God Bless you all. Pete"
Thoughts & prayers appreciated.

dear SOG Family I, come before you all. Once again asking for prayer.
There's a situation that has, come up within my family. For personal
reasons I, can't share the specifics. All I can say is that, it's a
really bad situation. Urgent Prayer is desperately needed. I/We need
God to, intervene before it's too late. I'd greatly appreciate your
prayers. Thanks for allowing me to, share my burdens with you all.
by Jesus Freak on Sat Sep 27, 2008 4:51 pm
like to ask you to, please remember Malinda in your prayers. She's such
a dear friend of mine. We're so close that we're like family. I met her
about 9 years ago. We used to go to church together. Malinda is my best
friend, in the whole world. Anyway I just got a, phone call from her.
She really needs alot of prayer. To make a long story, short Malinda is
not well. She has a history of, severe Migraine headaches. Lately
they've increased in their, frequency & severity as well.
had several trips, to the Emergency Room. In the past she's even, had
to be hospitalized. They (Migraines) are so bad. That they leave her,
literally unable to function. The doctors can't find, the source of the
Migraines. The meds they give her either, don't help at all or do very
little. Also her family needs alot of prayer. Both her parents have had
cancer. Her dad is in, remission from Lung Cancer. Her mom is in
remission from Leukemia. (sp?) In fact her mom, is still taking chemo.
just moved back to Maryland. Where she is at now, is about 8 hours
away. Right now she's living with one, of her daughters &
son-in-law. So she needs to be able to, find a good place to live too.
She amazes me with her faith. Despite everything she's going through.
She is fully relying on, God to supply all her needs. Malinda has the
most, positive attitude about everything. I'd really appreciate your
prayers for her & her family. She's supposed to call me, sometime
later in the week.
I'll post an update, when I find out more.
Update on Bonnie Holt
by Jesus Freak on Sat Sep 27, 2008 9:56 pm
Pastor Dave for the prayers. I talked to Bonnie's daughter earlier. She
had to take her (Bonnie), to the emergency room this morning. She's in
a severe amount of pain. Also she was up all, night literally screaming
in pain. The meds the doc gave her, doesn't seem to be helping much.
I'd like to ask everyone to please continue in your prayers. For both
Bonnie & her family. I'll keep you posted as I find out more.
Thanks Again For The Prayers. They're Greatly Appreciated!!

Daughter Kimi she might have to Eye Surgey soon but the dr is gonna do
an eye musserment on her eye's on 10/28 to see if she need's stronger
vision and if they are still the same then she's gonna have to have eye
surgey on both of her eye's. More to come in October
is Eric updating again tonight. Please pray for Laney. She has been
extremely sick to her stomach for almost two weeks. She has been
nauseous and has almost no appetite. She manages to force herself to
eat something, only to vomit later. She even wakes up several times per
night and speeds to the bathroom, and this repeats itself throughout
the day. She isn't in any pain, just mild cramping. I also noticed she
seems very tired. She is barely able to stay awake and when we go out,
she tells me she has to go home and rest. It's frustrating for
everyone. We all want her to be able to live a normal life and so does
she. She's very depressed right now. She is still drinking a little
bit; She drank two bottles of gatorade and a glass of milk today.

Brothers and Sisters of the faith,
keep us in prayer...We have definately felt the reccesion. The ministry
that the Lord gave me has been sustain by this on this one word
(complete). And I am confident in this one thing, that he who started a
good work in you shall COMPLETE
it until the day of JESUS CHRIST. PHIL 1:6
We have been through the biggest finacial storm of our lives by having to file for ch.7 bankrupcy protection.
feel that we have not completed our mission. In fact, I believe that
this is part of the process for greater blessings. but (it still hurts
to feel rejected and not accepted by the family of faith concerning
this new idea that the HOLY SPIRIT inspired me to do.)
I am tired, not defeated, but tired.
I wish there was another way ...but I choose this process..and come hell or high water..I must complete the task.
body is weak, especially my stomach area. I don't have a clear
understanding of why I must suffer so much ..but I will lean not to my
own understanding but continue to acknowlege HIM.
The enemy has been
tempting me in various areas in my life that God has already, forgiven
me and cleansed me from. (does the enemy have the right to continue to
laugh at me for not accepting his offer, I guess) I just wonder how
longer must I endure this valley walk, before God moves.
It's been a
long time now and my faith is enduring but I don't know how much longer
I can endure with kingdom time kneelers,alone. I will keep my faith on
God as I could never look back, but as far as business and
ministry...it just does not mix well.
to much bitterness and resentment, for a lack of support.
Maybe I'll write a book on the process and is it really worth the risk.
The devil is very, very, bad and evil and does control the wealth of this economy.
For if it was not so ...Jesus would have told us.
As for me, I will continue to store my treasures in heaven where neither thief nor corruption may affect me.
Keep us in your prayers, PLEASE

VOM Prayer Update for September 22, 2008
On Mon. Sep 22 2008 at 07:34 AM David H wrote:
INDIA – Attacks on Christians Continue for Third Week – VOM Sources
VOM contacts report violence against Christians in Orissa state has
continued for the third week as Hindu extremists have refused to accept
the Maoists' claim of responsibility for the murder of a Hindu leader
in late August. On September 13, an irate mob torched a church building
in the village of Anchhla, Koraput district. In another incident, a
Christian man was killed by militants in the town of Raikia. On
September 14, 12 homes belonging to Christians were burned in the
village of Makabali. Extremists have even launched attacks on the
police for intervening in the violence. Christians fear they will
continue to be targeted, particularly since extremists have prepared a
list of approximately 140 Christians who they allege were the Hindu
leader's killers. The list is being distributed among Hindu supporters
in order to identify who should be punished or killed in case the
government fails to take action to their satisfaction. Pray that the
perpetrators of these attacks will come to repentance and salvation.
Ask God to strengthen the thousands of Christians affected by the
violence to remain steadfast in faith. Pray for full and lasting peace
in this persecution-torn region.
IRAN – Parliament Votes to Punish Apostasy with Death – Compass Direct News
September 9, Iran's parliament voted in favor of a draft law that would
mandate the death penalty for men convicted of apostasy, a charge
frequently brought against Christians in the country. If this law
passes all stages of Iran's legislative process, male Muslim converts
to Christianity if convicted would have no other punishment than
death.. Under current Iranian law, apostasy is a capital offence, but
the judge is free to decide the penalty. Pray for believers in custody
in Iran and ask God to protect them. Ask the Holy Spirit to encourage
believers in Iran who are standing for Christ unashamedly despite the
cost they might pay. Praise God for their courage.
2 Samuel 22:31
LAOS – Evicted Families in Need, Believers Still Being Held – VOM Sources
contacts in Laos report that seven families evicted from their homes by
police early last year continue to face hardships as they relocate to
other areas. Meanwhile, eight pastors who were arrested in Udom Sai
province in March 2008, are still being held in prison and there is no
indication when they might be released. Please pray for the evicted
families and ask God to meet their needs. Pray for the families of
imprisoned pastors who are financially challenged, especially for some
of the children that have had to leave school because their parents are
in prison. Ask God to watch over and protect VOM workers serving
persecuted believers in Laos.
AZERBAIJAN – Baptist Pastor Ordered to Remain in Prison – Forum 18 News
judge has ordered imprisoned Baptist Pastor Hamid Shabanov detained for
another two months. "The judge called the latest hearing without even
informing Hamid's lawyer. This was a clear violation," Ilya Zenchenko
head of the Baptist Union told Forum 18 News. The pastor was arrested
in June following a police raid on his home and faces charges of
possession of an illegal
weapon; charges that his family insist
are fabricated. Pray for Pastor Shabanov's family and congregation. Ask
God to protect and encourage them.
Here is your prayer assignment for today!
