Guys, I think this is a great time to institute something I've been thinking about for awhile.

Many of us have posted prayer needs and praises here in SD. Let's start a prayer chain in the Bible group for everyone who is interested in having a running list, and we can even write our prayers for each other.

I apologize that I don't keep up with everyone, and it would be very helpful to me to have an up to date list.

I know we're only allowed 5 groups, and I've forgotten whether the groups feature is only for golds and plats.

If you would like to be on the prayer list but don't have room for another group, I'm sure you could PM those of us who would gladly post your needs and/or praises for you there.

If you would like to have your prayer needs on the list, please feel free to post them here or in the Bible groups list.

Oh - and please don't misunderstand. I don't mean for the list in Bible groups to supercede asking for prayer here in SD. It's merely to keep a running list of those who have asked for prayer out here so we don't forget or lost track of your needs.

This idea is not in any way to interfere. It's just to consolidate our prayer needs in one extra place.

Sounds like a great idea.

I'm in! And I wouldn't mind my family being kept in prayer.

It's my fault. I got sick Saturday (couldn't even make it to church). It continued through Sunday (didn't get to have my garage sale), and last night my husband got it, and this morning my daughter got it. So far I feel better today, but I stayed home anyway, and am taking care of everybody else. Bought lots of Gatorade (that's pretty much been my diet for the last 3 days, and will now be theirs.)

I don't enjoy sitting on the toilet with my head in a trash can.....WAAHHH!

Sherilynn1962, you sound so miserable. Hopefully by the end of today all of your family will be feeling better.

Since i noticed this thread i've kept an eye on it, obviously. Look, if this is what floats your boat i really hope it takes off for you. When one of mine was ill i always opted for the hospital rather than the church, but i doubt prayer does any harm. Best of wishes to you all.

Thank you, Salzypat! I feel much better today than I did even at 10:30 last night. I have eaten 3 halves of a graham cracker, a spoonful of macaroni and cheese, and a small bite of chicken and have kept it down so far. This bug appears to last about 72 hours, so my poor little Allison and my Bubba Andy will be suffering for 2 more days....

And to Cloggs:

I personally have never hesitated to take a loved one or friend to the doctor or hospital when needed. Loma Linda was started by the SDAs. Traditional medicine doesn't bother me in the least. Traditional medicine saved my mother, who has been cancer-free for almost 15 years. I also saw a lovely lady in my church down in Southern Nevada die of the same cancer (breast) because she chose to do nothing except drink pure grape juice, believing that it would cleanse her and kill the cancer. Of course, there are non-traditional therapies for many ailments that I don't mind using as well. I myself see my doctor only when necessary, and never agree to antibiotics unless needed to clearn up infection (luckily I trust my doctor completely in making this determination). I am more prone to taking my 9-year old, however, because with children one never knows.

I think there are only a few religious groups that prefer to not use doctors, hospitals or traditional medicine, although I'm not familiar with them. I know those of the Jehovah's Witness faith will refuse blood transfusions (although I don't know why).

Blessings to you all,

Yes, please add me in... I need to join a group, I'm not in one. No wonder I feel left out. (Laughter doeth good like a medicine is my scripture that tells me it's okay to see the doc and take medicine. Cuz I know God is okay with laughter. He made me, after all and I'm funny looking, um, I mean I'm funny sometimes.)

There are and will be prayers for much more than health issues, though those weigh on our hearts most often, it seems.

When my broken foot was healed by God in 1994, I had gone to the doctor. My foot was black and blue and swollen so that I could not wear any shoe but the walking shoe thingy the doctor gave me.

After God healed my foot (which happened during the night after a praise service at Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas), the next morning I awoke and there was absolutely no bruising or discoloration at all, and all the swelling was gone. I could wear any shoe I wished. No one was more amazed than I, since I didn't pray for healing. Others did, but I didn't.

Three days later I played tennis.

Sure enough, I played tennis just as lousy as ever - but there was never any pain or even soreness in that foot ever again - even to this day.

Now - an even weirder thing is that not 6 months later, I broke the OTHER foot!

God did not heal that one (and again I didn't ask). I can't wait to see Him and talk to Him about it face to face.
