Prayer Needed!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) today, I'll be asking you to pray.

Please, pray for my grandson, N.

Yesterday afternoon, I spent some time with N, at the emergency room (ER) of our local hospital.  I am thankful I got to see him and he was able to talk.

N let me know that he didn't know what happened to him.

Apparently, he fell.  N hit his head on concrete, and was knocked out.

N let me know that he did not know how long he laid outdoors on the concrete, unconscious.

Apparently, when he awoke, he contacted his mom... my daughter, B. 

Before I continue, I must say that I'm rather upset that my grandson, N had been hurt like this.  Yet, none of his neighbours, nor did his roommate see that he was unconscious, laying on the concrete.

This truly upset me, especially since his roommate used to be his girlfriend.  Apparently, she told him she still wants to be his roommate, but broke up with him, because she wanted to date a fellow who she had dated previously... but, who was causing trouble with N, from time to time.

While I heard some of that information from N, I heard the worst of it from another family member, who was also at the hospital's ER room with us.  I also heard there was trouble near where they live, by the same fellow friend of N's ex-girlfriend.

In my heart, I wondered if N had tripped.  Or, if he had been pushed on the staircase.  Or, if he had been hit and knocked out.

The truth is, only God knows.

I must admit, I praise God that N, is still alive!

He could have died.  I praise God that He didn't allow N, to die.

For this, I not only praise God, but I thank Him for His mercy!

Thinking of this, brought to mind, Psalm 115:1, "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake."

Yes, we need to not be thankful to ourselves.  We need to be thankful and give glory to God, for His mercy and His truth's sake.

Even though N has no idea how he fell onto the concrete and was unconscious for an unknown period of time, I'm grateful God helped him.  Just as I said previously.

I am also grateful that even though N, has a serious concussion and terrible head pain, I am grateful God helped him, by not having his skull fractured.

For this, I will always be thankful! 

Thank You, Lord!

I feel there is something else I must let you know.

When I prayed for/with my grandson, N... I asked God to not take him home.  I asked that if He felt the need to take someone home, I asked Him to take me instead... and not my grandson, N.

After all, N is a young man.  He needs to have a full life, ahead of him.  Whereas, I've lived much longer, and has gone through trial, after trial, after trial... in life.

No, I didn't say that last part, to God.  I just wanted Him to know that I felt it would be better for N, to live, than for me.

Please join me in prayer.

I believe it is necessary to pray for those young people who N, has had a hard time with, as of lately.

Although I don't know for sure, I believe in my heart that those young people who N has had trouble with lately, are probably not Christian.  They probably aren't saved.  If they were, I believe none of those problems that I heard happened, would have happened.

So please... pray that anyone/everyone who was involved in those anger-related problems, won't just stop being angry.  But, also pray that they will come to Christ.

Pray that they will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  For if they become some of our church family, they will feel badly about whatever happened. 

And, will at some point in time, forgive each other.  And, repent.

Of course, please pray for healing, for my grandson, N.

Thank you.  May God bless you, my friend.


Until next time...
