1) Update on a prayer request for my stepson--very much the Prodigal Son. Raised in the church, as an adult he does drugs, drinks, is not living for the Lord. He is also physically abusive to his wife (she told us). He's not in the same state as we are. A few months ago, he and his dad had a heated discussion on the phone. My stepson said "lose my phone number,,,,don't EVER call me again." Then hung up. My stepson is very troubled. He even tried to commit suicide this year. We are very concerned and put in extra prayers for him daily. Thanksgiving day the phone rang and it was him. My husband apologized and so did my stepson. My stepson said that God has been with him; watching over him. That's a step in the right direction. At times he has said blasphemous saying "God can stick it" or "I don't know IF there is a God". He cusses a lot, which is hard to listen to. Even so, his dad does not hang up on him. Thanks for praying and for continuing to pray. 2- Randy rents a room from us. He is out of work (again) and needs a full time job with benefits. Also, pray for him to quit smoking. He struggles with that. 3- I asked for prayer to lose weight. I've lost 32 lbs. on Weight Watchers. What a great plan and I don't feel deprived. I eat real food. Please continue to lift me up in prayer as I have much more weight to lose. Losing will put less pressure on my joints. I am bone to bone on the Right knee. Need a Total knee but first must lose approx. 80 lbs. more.
