Let’s do this!
It’s Pray Day for Danny!
I’m getting down off my podium and putting Danny back up there for this month of February.
It’s been two months since Danny’s wheelchair took a tumble off the back of the car and it’s been an adjustment to say the least. The longer getting a new chair takes, the more frustrated we become.
What once was a semblance of independence, we now acknowledge is so much better than nothing!
That being said, according to the physical therapists, Danny has improved so much in his core strength by having to use the manual chair.
It is a blessing in disguise and he’s now been restricted from bringing any power chair to Shepherd period.
Over the weekend, we were blessed to try out a different kind of power chair. Danny was thrilled! There were pros and cons for the chair, but it made such a difference in his attitude. Plus, I didn’t have to walk the dog. Double blessing.
The bad news is that we have to turn in the chair and then build a new one based on our feedback from the demo chair. So, we’re still looking at another month before we get Danny some new legs.
Please pray this process goes quickly and economically!
Secondly, Danny has asked that you pray for endurance. I’m learning quite a bit about this concept and it’s something we discussed even yesterday.
I’m so thankful that God created Danny with such a determined, stubborn streak. If Danny was ever a quitter, he would have already settled for less than we believe he is capable of and for what God is doing in him for His glory.
So, we humbly ask that you pray that Danny would be encouraged with progress, that he would have a gold nugget of hope to hold on to as we continue to fight for full restoration.
Lastly, as you know if you follow us on Facebook, we’ve been going to counseling at Shepherd Pathways for the last couple months. It’s been going pretty well and we’re making changes to help Danny feel more in control and also more purposeful in his new role and responsibilities.
Please continue to pray for us as a couple and as a family.
Now, go take five minutes and pray saints! Your prayers are so valuable to the God of the impossible that He keeps them before His throne.
An eighth messenger came and stood before the altar carrying a golden censer. He received a large portion of incense to complement the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar that sits in front of the throne. From the hand of the eighth messenger, the smoke of the incense mixed with the prayers of God’s people and billowed up before God. The messenger filled the censer with fiery coals from the altar and cast it upon the earth, causing a great commotion of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. Revelation 8:3-5
One thought on “Pray Day for Danny-February 2014”
Exciting news about the loaner chair! But my favorite part is how the “have-to” use of the manual has increased his core strength. I want to encourage Danny to “see” himself walking in the not to distant future. Create scenarios in your imagination where you are walking purposefully – We continue to pray for your endurance and that of the family. Blessings – you are loved!
