Grace~ites, please be in prayer for Cathy Turner at Piedmont hospital, she is awaiting a heart transplant.
Precious Saints! Please be in prayer for the Coopinger family of Texas who lost their son, daughter-in-law and unborn grandson in a tragic car wreck. This dear family is from our home church in Texas, Heritage Baptist church. My heart is broken and I know that only through the fervent effectual prayers of the righteous the comfort of the Holy Spirit will help them and all of us that knew them through this. This couple were godly young people serving the Lord, Jonathan was in seminary and they were on fire for the Lord. They were such a positive influence in the lives of so many. My prayer is that their death will be a wake up call for youth that think they have all the time in the world to come to Jesus or have not made their faith priority in their lives. Thank for your prayers. I know that God is sovereign and will work even this to our good.
Under His Shadow!

He knows Jesus as His Saviour and we know God is in control of everything!
