Prayer...The Greatest Resource

Today one of my best friends, Dawn, will be going to the doctor for a CTScan. On Friday, she went for an ultrasound due to speculation of gallstones. Instead, they found a mass on her liver.
You can read more detailed information here. What I am asking is that everyone who visits this blog today stop reading and lift up a prayer for Dawn and her family....right now! As my pastor quoted in his sermon yesterday: "Prayer is the one resource we neglect that promises the greatest return." So, as you pray, please also pray for Dawn's husband, Russell, and their precious, soon-to-be 4 yr. old son, Isaac. This morning I lift up Psalm 20: 1-5 as my prayer for Dawn as she undergoes testing and anticipates answers:

Dear Lord, We come to you today in a time of trouble.
Please answer our cry. Please keep Dawn safe from all harm.
Please send her help from your sanctuary and provide her strength from you. May she remember all your gifts and how you have so wonderfully blessed her. Please grant her your heart’s desires and make all her plans succeed. Dear Lord, we know you are in control of this situation. May we all shout for joy when we hear of your victory and raise a victory banner in the name of our God. Lord please answer all of our prayers! Amen
