If You Want Me To
------Ginny Owens

The pathway is broken
And The signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

So When the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

Oh God, hear us beg for intervention according to YOUR WILL. Surrendering BJ's life to YOU as he has already done himself.

Father, we as the body of Christ want to take away the hurt that Brent, Deanna and the girls are going through right now. These intimate hours take their very breath away.

Comfort them, please reassure them in a way that only YOU can.

Thank you Father that we can know that no matter how you choose to heal BJ, that so many hearts have been changed forever. May that honor You, Oh God.

Blanket BJ's room with a comforting, peaceful warmth straight from the throne of Jesus.

Bless the doctors and all of BJ's caregivers. Place the right people at the right place to meet the need this very hour.

Thank you, Jesus. Amen

Waiting with you...

Praying for you all tonight and trusting God will awaken me to pray through the night.
BJ has been an encouragement to many-I lead a group of senior girls and tonight we talked about BJ and how his life has made a difference for Christ, even now.
I am challenged by his last journal post and have to look at my life and what I'm doing to make it count for HIM, especially when I struggle so much with obedience!

Lord we all love you, and you commanded us to love one another, and i love BJ for he is my brother in Christ. Lord BJ is in your hands we all pray for him to get better and we want that more than ever. BUt as Christ said in the garden of Gethsamne "Father let your will be done and not mine." So i ask of the same thing that your will be done throuh this occurance, everything happens for a reason Lord GOd, and i know their is a reason this is happening now but all i can say that we as a BOdy in CHrist can dow right now is to pray. So i pray with all my heart soul and strength and my mind.

The Potter's Hand
By Darlene Zschech

Beautiful Lord, Wonderful Savior
I know for sure all of my days are in your hand,
Crafted into Your perfect plan.
You gently call me into Your presence,
Guiding me by Your Holy Spirit
Teach me dear Lord to live all my life through your eyes.
I'm captured by Your Holy calling,
Set me apart, I know You're drawing me to Yourself.
Lead me Lord I pray.


Take me, mold me,
Use me, fill me.
I give my life to the Potter's hand.
Call me, guide me,
Lead me , walk beside me.
I give my life to the Potter's hand.

Lord I have no doubt this is BJ's prayer. Please heal him to be used by you in a mighty way just as he is being used right now to draw us all into your presence.
Thank you, Lord Jesus! Amen and amen!

Checking in on my lunch break...and wishing the news was better.

I will keep praying through the night for my fellow night-shifters at St. V's, that they would have extra measures of wisdom, grace, energy, and gentleness in all their dealings with you and B.J. on this dark, dark night.

God, it so hard to pray "Thy will be done". I pray with all my heart that Your will is to heal BJ's poor stressed body in such a decisive way that everyone who has come into contact with him knows that it has to be from You and not from earth.

Please be present in a most real way in the hours ahead to Brent, Deanna, Lauren and Whitney as they stand by so helplessly and watch. Guard their hearts and fill them with your peace, O LORD, I pray.

Waiting and watching along with you,
