January 13, 2012 – Prayers for Skip

One of our family’s close friends, who was there for us throughout Hannah’s illness and death is facing the battle of his own life with terminal cancer.  Skip has courageously battled this horrible diseases and is an amazing man, husband and father…we love Skip Turner!  Attached is a recent picture of him doing his Cam Newton Heisman pose (Auburn fan) during a recent visit with him in Atlanta.  Prayer warriors and anyone who reads this blog, we need prayers for Skip, his wife Kim, his son Kyle and his daughter Meghean.  Pray for peace, comfort, strength and no more pain.  We pray for Jesus to surround him with the love and affection that only He can provide.  Jesus was tortured, crucified, died and resurrected, and He alone understands what Skip is going through more than anyone in this world can understand.   He will be there when Skip enters into Heaven and his eternal life, and He alone will comfort all those close to Skip.  Jesus, Skip needs you! 

Romans 8:18-27 (NLT)

18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later. 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who His children really are. 20 Against it’s will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. 22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as His adopted children,[a] including the new bodies He has promised us. 24 We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope[b] for it. 25 But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.)

 26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. 27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers[c] in harmony with God’s own will.
