Prayer Chain // Week 6

Boy, am I ready for this week's link up. 

I am so thankful for this prayer network of women. Thank you, thank you, thank you to those of you who have become a part of Melissa Jo's idea of The Prayer Chain.

Thank you for sharing your hearts, and your lives with us. And thank you for praying with us!

When life throws something my way, I know just who to come to for prayer. 

This week, I would like to ask you guys to pray for my roommate, Ashlee. 


You might recall that a few weeks ago, she was hit by a car while biking. She has handled everything with such grace. I am constantly inspired by her strength and optimism, two things that I don't always exude while going through something incredibly difficult. 

This past week, Ashlee found out that her injury was more extensive than initially thought. She will be needing surgery, which will leave her unable to walk for 3 months. 

Because of the circumstances, Ashlee will be completing the surgery and her recovery at home in Oregon. She'll be packing up and making the long drive as you're reading this

A lot to process in only a matter of days, right? 

Please pray for Ashlee. Pray for the pain that she is currently experiencing. Pray for safe travels to Oregon. Pray for her surgery, and recovery. 

And pray that during this extremely difficult season, she would feel closer to the Spirit of God than she ever has before. 

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.
Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises. 
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them 
pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 

James 5: 13-14

Sweet Home Santa Barbara

Praying for Ashlee, for quick healing and recovery, and that God would heal her mentally, physically, and spiritually. Also, praying for you, friend! I can't imagine how much this might change things for both of you so quickly.

Praying for your Ashlee!!! & for you since you'll be alone for quite some time. I'm glad to hear that she has a great attitude about it!

Praying, praying, praying for Ashlee throughout these next few months! That's so awful to hear, but I know He will take care of her! Keep us updated if that's okay with her :)
