Will you please pray with us about something?

Hi sweet friends~  I have just a moment to ask a request from you.  Will you please pray with me right now – whenever you read this that our house will sell quickly?  I know that some of you are praying with us for this, but I just sensed an urgency to hop on and ask you right now.  We have two weeks of school left, then our family will have closed down life in Nashville and will be prepared for a fresh start in Mississippi. 

I know that the Lord has PERFECT timing… I know that He has a plan… I know that He will do this… but I also know that when He places an urgency upon us to ask others to join us in praying, we would be disobedient not to do so.

So, I’m asking… will you please pray with us that the Lord will open the eyes and ears of those He is preparing to purchase our home?  We have prayed that it will be a blessing to the ones who buy it – just like it has been to us.  We have asked for God’s glory to surround this home, and that others can literally see, hear, taste, touch, and smell the presence of the Lord in this place.

God has prepared a home for us in Cleveland Mississippi, but we can’t move until this home sells.  I don’t know what God is up to, but I know He’s up to something… and one of these days we will look back and call it “good”.  He has called us to join Him in Cleveland… and we KNOW He will complete that call.  Maybe He will use you in His completion. 🙂  We would so very much appreciate your investment in God’s work in our lives through prayer.

Thank you for being the kind of community to which I can boldly make this request.  I love you and thank God for you.
