Recently I found out that a young man named Joe from the town I live in has been hospitalized for a respiratory infection of unknown origin. I really don't know much else, he is a few years older than my oldest son and his mom and I know each to say hello, but that's all. The most important thing he needs now are prayers as his prognosis is not good, but I know first hand the power of prayer.
I also wanted to share with you a website that helps people fund raise for people in situations like Joe, it is called giveforward.org. It is a great way for people that want to do something but aren't local and can't physically help in other ways. There will be a fundraiser here in town later this month to help with medical and other expenses for the family as Joe is in a hospital in Los Angeles so his family is away from their home.
Thank you for your prayers, NEVER underestimate the POWER of PRAYER!!
