Special prayers please...


The past few days I have had some small conversations with Ben...him using his head nods and shakes. I asked if he was frustrated about where he was and his recovery. I also asked Ben a few more questions about life and where his heart is....and it broke my heart with what his answers were! Right before this I was reading him some of his favorite book Wild At Heart. The part that we were reading was talking about a powerful man and strong heart. I asked Ben if he felt like he was a powerful man and had a strong heart now and he shrugged his shoulders and gave me a slight head shake no!
I truly believe that the enemy is feeding Ben lies and trying to get Ben to give up on what Ben knows to be true! Ben is a very strong man and easily motivated but like any other person the enemy tries to take that strength away from us!

PLEASE pray that Ben will be strengthened and that the enemy will have NO place in Ben's mind, heart, soul and spirit! Also pray that Jesus shows me how to pray over my man! I prayed over Ben right after that and claimed many scriptures as well! I had him mouth I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME and he did a good job.

Wow, he couldn't be showing more strength right now! Medical Rehab is not for wimps! Tell him that! Tell him some people can't go to rehab because they are not strong enough. Tell him that the strength he had before all this is a HUGE benefit to him now. He is strong. In body. In mind. In soul. Again, this stuff is not for wimps! Praying all over this one, Katie!

I am praying! it always makes me want to cry when guys, especially strong ones of the Lord, feel defeated. i am praying the enemy will have no place in you or Ben and that the Lord would shine His light in your life in amazing ways you never knew existed!

Katie, you are the BEST cheerleader ever, prayer warrior, and the enemy has NO place in Ben's mind or your situation in Jesus name. I will pray for Ben's mind to be renewed this week and that the Lord would continue to show Himself miraculous!
