Another "Prayer Fest" is needed

This list has done a lot of good for people all over the country (and
world). Those of us who believe in prayer-- know that it does work.

Maybe it is a coincidence -- maybe not... But everyone who we have
prayed for has felt our prayers....and their health improved (or their
well being improved).

So I am asking you one more time to put out that positive energy for
the friend of one of our colleagues. Randy (a former music teacher and
now technology specialist -- and a good one!) discovered he has
cancerous lymphoma. At present there are no cells in the bone marrow
(a good sign) -- but the only treatment available for him now is
chemotherapy. We aren't asking for miracles here....just some hope for
the chemo to work and for Randy's energy level to improve. For now ---
if you want to send some words of encouragement to Randy (you may
e-mail me off list and I will forward )

My Prayer for Randy today:
(revised from one I received from a list friend)

I ask the Lord to bless Randy
As I pray for him today
To guide him and protect him
As he goes along his way.

God's love is always with you, Randy
His promises are true,
And when we give Him all our cares
You know he will see us through
So when the road you're traveling on
Seems difficult at best
Just remember I'm here praying
And we'll let God do the rest!

And another short one for Randy (also from a Getty list friend):

May there be peace within you today.
May you trust God that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.

"I believe that friends are quiet angels who
lift us to our feet when our wings have
trouble remembering how to fly."

Randy - Everything happens for a reason....There is a plan for our
Maybe part of the plan for your life is to reach out and have your
fellow man care more for one another? Maybe part of the plan for your
life is to get more to contribute to cancer research?

And for my list friend who shared this information with me...Please
let Randy know he can write to me anytime....any hour of the day. I
always read my personal mail first.

A Wonderful Wednesday for all of my friends,

Judy Decker
