Fearless Friday, January 27th

Hi, everyone!

It is late, so I am going to try to make this quick.  I may have to finish posting it in the morning.

Today is Fearless Friday, when many of us across the internet gather in cyber world to pray for the needs of others.  We love to take your needs to the Father in prayer and feel it is a great honor to have the opportunity to do so.

If you need prayer or would like us to pray for someone else, be sure and leave a comment or you can email me.  You can also contact my friend, Angela, if you would like.  You will find our information in my sidebar.

There is a precious little girl, Tenlee, who is in great need of prayer.  The following is taken directly from my buddy, Linda’s (Prairie FlowerFarm) website:

Tenlee had heart surgery on Monday January 25, everything went wonderful and all day she responded very well. On Tuesday Morning the respiratory tech went to give her a breathing treatment and the machine got reversed and sucked all the air from her lungs. This stopped her heart. They put her on life support and gave her 50-50 chance of surviving. Thank you ladies for praying. 

Isn’t she precious?!!

Also, please keep Tenlee’s parents and other family members in your prayers.  Also, Tenless’s grandmother request we pray for the respiratory tech, who was administering the treatment when the accident happened.


This is what we learned when we made it back to the hospital. Tenlee had blood work done to test blood gas levels, a scan of her brain, chest xrays, and an echocardiogram. Not sure if that is spelled correct. Everything was swelling of the brain, blood levels good, AND her heart has begun to work correctly!!! So, right now they are saying no surgery. It's that amazing. Yesterday there was so much damage that it had to be done again and today the damage is gone. Hummm, wonder who did that?! Praise God! The lungs are another story. They said that on the xrays that the left lung is white which means it is still deflated. The right is white at the very top and the very bottom. But the right is beginning to function. She was placed on a different type of ventilator that blows 340 puffs of air into her lungs each minute. This is suppose to help open the left lung and help it stay open. The doctor has started weaning her off the machines. The machine that is doing the work of the heart goes by numbers. It started at 650 which is doing everything for her heart. A few minutes ago, it was at 440 and Tenlee's heart is doing more of the work. As a matter of fact, she had a reaction to a med that she was receiving because her heart was also working and she needed less of the medication. They are continuing to give less and less of the medication as her heart does more. They are also trying to lessen her sedation. When we play with her toes, she will wiggle them. Also, one eye is trying to open. Kisa touched her eyelid to close it and Tenlee quickly opened her eye. It was almost as if she knew it was Mom. I'm sure it was a reaction to the touch but it was still exciting to see her open her eye.

NOW, don't think too much! She still has a long way to go but they are hoping to have her completely off the heart machine tomorrow afternoon. We will see. And, it will depend on what the lungs do. I will send another email as she makes IMPROVEMENTS. Doesn't that sounds wonderful. Until tomorrow, we love you all and appreciate all you are doing for our Tenlee.

Regina & Jack

1st email It is 9:16 on Friday morning. Heard from Regina that little Tenlee went potty. That sounds funny she said, but for them it is wonderful. Keep praying. That was answered prayer!!!!!!!

Also another Grandma wrote today and needs prayer for Charlotte her 2 year old grand-daughter. They were taking her to the hospital as she had been sick for 2 weeks and they didn't know what was causing it. She said thank you!
(Thanks for keeping us updated, Linda!) 
Keep praying, guys!

Also, I am asking for prayers for the following people for salvation ~ David S., Lynn G., Leigh and Stacy H., Scott T., and Joe and Darlene T. 

I am asking that you pray for David S.'s health along with his salvation and pray for Anita T. who will be having surgery today (Friday).

Please lift my friend Bren in prayer ~ for healing and social security has totally messed up her monthly amount and she is having problems with the Medicare paperwork.  Pray that these bookkeeping mistakes are taken care of quickly.

Pray for Beth and her husband, as they are dealing with a number of stressful situations going on.

Several have asked me to pray for their finances.  And I am sure there are more of us who could use prayer in this area.  I am asking God to meet all of our needs, according to HIS riches in glory!  After all, he owns the cattle on a thousand hills!  He is able to meet our every need.

Linda has some housing needs (me too! And my family) and we are praising God and looking forward to what HE has in store for us in this area.

Praying for David O. to be placed in the job ABBA has for him and praying for Jenny O. to receive a fair insurance settlement soon.

Asking for God to provide a job for Shoshannah and for Mack.
Praising God that the young missionary that was ambushed in Haiti is making such an awesome recovery!!!

Pray for a safe trip back to Texas for Lynne and Sam.  They will be traveling sometime next week.

Also, lift Richard W. to the Father for healing.

There are many more needs, but I will be updating this list through out the weekend…..and praying through out the coming week.

Please be praying for my friends and followers.  Many of us are doing the Sacrificial Diet and would appreciate your prayers.

Welcome new follower(s)….love that you are here!!!

Blessings of peace, the Shalom of God, on your homes and families.
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
