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 son, Ryan

Please pray for my son, Ryan.

He is 14 yrs and fell over a waterfall today, falling quite a distance. It took them at least 3 hrs to get him to the car and another 4 at the ER.

He has 4 breaks in his foot and will need surgery this week. Ryan has Aspergers and has high anxiety issues. He doesn't know about the surgery yet!

He's also running a fever tonight.

Thank you for your prayers.

Janine's husband and son

Please pray for my friend, Janine's, husband. He's one of the many who has lost a job over the last several months and is needing to find what God wants him to do next.

Also, please pray for her son, David. He has been very sick and she had to pull him from school and start teaching him at home.

Emerson has complications

Please continue to keep Emerson in your prayers. She is having complications following her second multi-organ transplant.

From her mother's blog, I've copied some key phrases:

"remains febrile and has stopped making adequate urine."

"Dr. fears she may have a bladder perforation, spilling urine into her body cavity"

"not extubatable."

"perforation likely happened several days ago & the contents of her bowel have been spilling into her bloodstream and abdominal cavity since"

"newly developed blood transfusion allergy"

Nicol, Greg and Summer

Please pray for Nicol, Greg and Summer. If you remember from a previous prayer request, they lost their little boy Luke last year to SIDS. Recently they found out that they were pregnant again. Unfortunately, Greg just posted today that Nicol has miscarried this baby. We all know the pain that they must be in right now. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Update on Emerson

I just realized that I never posted an update on how Emerson is doing since her 2nd Transplant last week.

She is doing quite well! She has a long ways to go, but her parents and doctors are quite pleased with her progress!

Thank you for praying for her.

Pray for Amanda

Please pray for Amanda, one of the contributors to this blog.

Amanda is nearly 17 weeks pregnant and has been having some health difficulties. From her blog today:

If you don't mind, I'd like to ask specifically for you to please pray for my health. There have been some issues popping up lately (that I hope to never have to go into, but might be able to talk about at a later date). I have been undergoing some tests, taking some meds and will find out results of the tests within the next few weeks. Please pray that all is okay and that these tests and meds are just precautionary. Please also keep the baby in your prayers as we are not sure if any of this is affecting the baby. Thank you.

Emerson got the call!

I've asked prayer for this sweet girl before.

Her name is Emerson and she's been on the transplant list for the second time for multiple organs.

Today she got the call that they have a liver, pancreas, bowel and kidneys for her.

Please pray for Emerson and her family and check here often for updates.

Please also be in prayer for the donor family during this difficult time.


Please continue to be in prayer for Stellan and the entire MckFamily as Stellan and MckMama are headed to Boston very soon.

Please pray for my son

I don't want to post anything on my other blog because he reads that at times.

Please pray for my son. R has really been struggling with depression. It's hard to know how much is due to hormones, how much is Aspergers... He's just been very depressed and emotional lately. He's talked to some friends about hurting himself and I worry a lot about him. Pray that we have wisdom in the words we say and that we know how to help him.

Thank you - Debbi
