GBS Update: Wednesday 30th June 2010

Thank you for all your prayers for Luke to have a home visit asap. When I arrived yesterday his physio came to say that they would like to practice a car transfer with our car at the hospital on Thursday, with a view to letting Luke, if all goes well, come home for an hour or two on Friday, when the OT’s come to assess our home for accessibility. What a swift answer to prayer! The physio said they were all amazed at the rapid progress Luke is making. Luke stood up for several minutes longer yesterday, with the help of the machine, but was actually able to lift himself off the bed from a sitting position, and stood waiting for the machine to catch him up!

The bible tells us that the prayers of a righteous man are powerful and effective, and we are righteous simply because of Jesus, so thank you for keeping on praying – your prayers are having much effect! With that in mind, please pray with us today

1 Please give thanks with us today for the amazing intervention of God in Luke’s life. We see Him outworking healing every day and are so grateful.

2 For the goal planning meeting this morning, which we will be attending as well as Luke. That the team would be open to many of his goals, some of which are optimistic, but we do have a God of miracles!

3 For the car transfer practice tomorrow to go well. That we would get the hang of how to assist Luke when he doesn’t yet have full movement.

4 That God would speak to Luke about the future, both short term and long term. That Luke would be led by Him with regard to goal setting today and also for the bigger picture of the future ahead.

“To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One. Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing. O Jacob, how can you say the LORD does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights? Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Isaiah 40: 25-29

None can compare to our mighty God, and we see Him giving power and strength to Luke’s weak body day after day. There truly is no one like Him!

With love

Gary and Debbie
