FaceBook Page for Before His Throne

New Page on FaceBook

Hi to all of our loyal "Before His Throne" prayer blog followers!

So sorry I've been sporadic about updating the prayer blog. Having a one year old and a firstgrader (along with a full time job) has not been easy! And, I know with Debbi's CF and Melanie's newborn and husband who has been deployed, it's not been easy on them either.

We have been praying :) And, remember, the Lord does not forget you. If we've missed posting your requests or your praises, the Lord has remembered many times over.

Please note that we will not abandon this blog but for now, We will mostly be posting requests as we can on FaceBook.

If you are not on FaceBook, don't worry. As I said, we will not stop posting here, but I did want to let you know where you can find us on FB.

We are on the Page: In Prayer; Before His Throne or you can click on the link below:


I just wanted to remind you also to rejoice in the Lord always - He Has Risen! Not only did Christ die for our sins but he LOVES us and cherishes us. We have a true friend in Jesus.

Love to you all,

My boss's dad - passed away this morning at 1 am


My boss's dad (Alister) died this morning at 1 am after a 13 day battle with lung cancer.
Please pray for the McArthur family as they go through this difficult time.


Please continue to pray for my boss's dad...I received this email from my boss this morning:

We just talked to the doctor. My Dad has taken a turn for the worse and probably only has a matter of weeks left which at this point is a blessing as he is now suffering so.
My eldest brother is flying down tomorrow from Calgary on the early flight. We are going to make arrangements tomorrow to have our father moved into a long term care facility as he sadly can not go home.
I want to thank you all for your caring and thoughtfulness during this difficult time in my family's life.

Please pray for my boss's dad. Tonight Graham found out that his dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. Not only was he diagnosed today, but they hospitalized him.

Please pray for Graham's entire family - they are very close.

We know what they are going through - we watched Chris's dad suffer with lung cancer for 1 year (diagnosed June 2000 and died July 21, 2001). It is not anything I'd wish on anyone else. My boss is the best and I never forget to thank God for sending him to me. He is the most caring man and I'm so glad I work for him. I have such a heavy heart for him tonight...
