Romans 1:6 "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..."

Saturday, January 30, 2010


It is with a heavy, yet hopeful, heart that I ask you all to stop what you are doing right now and pray for God's touch of healing for Ryan Hobson, and for his mother Elise and his father, Mark.

Mark and I attended school from elementary through high school. His father was our principal and his mother worked in the office while we were in school. Mark is now the assistant principal and his wife is also employed at the school. They are a wonderful Christian family...very active in church and the community.

Their son, Ryan, pictured here with his family, was diagnosed with leukemia this fall. Ryan has been very ill the past couple of days and Elise is keeping us all updated via FaceBook. I have copied her latest status so you will know how to pray. It was posted about three o'clock this morning.

Elise Wedgeworth Hobson Ryan has been moved to ICU. He has pneumonia and is having trouble with his oxygen levels. Very critical. Please pray without ceasing. It breaks our hearts to see him like this. Pray, pray!

Mark 11:24 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

Philippians 4:5(b)-7 " The Lord is near. Do not be anxious for anything, but in everything by prayer andpetition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Our God is still in the healing business! He is the same yesterday, today and forever more! He is our hope, our joy, our life. Please join with me as I pray for Ryan, Mark, Elise and the family.


  1. Prayer is on the way by many - not because God needs to know, but rather He wants to hear from us.

    Lord, we love you and are So glad you anxiously await our prayers. Be with this family in a very close and special way. You can touch this young man.


  2. My prayer is for the peace that passeth understanding to hold not only Ryan but all those who surround him and love him through this difficult time.


Thanks for stopping by...I look forward to seeing you again!
