Why we pray
Prayer is a conversation with God that is initiated by Him. God first comes and speaks to us through His Word and invites us to respond. God promises to hear our prayers so we can approach Him with confidence. “Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” I Thessalonians 5: 17-18

> I am so thankful for the connections I still have with my church family at Grace. Especially your prayer emails which keep me aware of people needing prayer, and other things that happen such as Evalee’s passing. I am wondering if you can put me on the “active” prayer list again. I will begin with a “praise God” that I was able to get a power wheel chair late last year. I cannot sit, stand or walk for any useful length of time. My power chair allows me to go places where there is a lot of walking involved, and sit comfortably as it has a nice custom sesting system.
> Unfortunately, I have multiple new physical issues due to my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and am undergoing weekly intensive Physical Therapy. Compounding this, my depression has now been labeled “treatment resistant” and is quite severe. Due to the high monthly premium of our “Marketplace” health insurance, multiple physician and therapy appointments weekly with high co-pays, and the cost of medications, adaptive equipment, diagnostic imaging and surgical procedures, we are in significant medical debt. We live primarily on my disability payments, while Rob works on his Masters in Art History including an internship. He works seasonally and does receive some minimal unemployment.
> I am telling you the whole story since you are a trusted friend and powerful prayer warrior. Please edit the above to make a prayer request which makes sense for the prayer list.
> Rob and I have also set up a “Go Fund Me” page, which tells our “story” and at which people can make a financial contribution if they wish. I have included the link below, and you are free to share it with anyone you think might be interested.
I miss you and love you!
Your Sister in Christ, Kristy
