A Call to Prayer

family2.jpgMany of you have been following the journey of my friend Stef the past few months either through his blog, AC180, my blog or all three. If you are not familiar with Stef, he is an amazing man of God, Christian brother, husband, father and friend. About 6 months ago, God gave me the blessing of connecting our paths and I am a better person today because of that divine moment. If you would like to know more about Stef, his journey and his family, he has been sharing it through his blog.

Today, I want to make a public call to prayer for my Christian brother, fellow AC180 contributor and friend. He has a surgery coming this Friday which is a very large step in his journey. I’d like to make the request to all that read these words to join me in praying. By linking arms with one another and lifting up Stefan and his family, we are proclaiming that God is on His throne. We are placing our trust in the hands of the great physician and the surgeons that will be handling the delicate procedure on Friday. I am also asking that everyone pray specifically on Friday morning while Stef is undergoing the surgery. Some have also committed to fasting on Friday if you feel led to do so.

I woke up this morning with the words to this song on my heart. When I gave it a quick listen this morning, the chorus at the end said it all. “We are NOT alone“. Thank you to all of you that are praying. We serve a great God. We serve a BIG God. May he get the glory, honor and praise.

I would also like to thank everyone for ALL of the prayers! Know that I am fully in God’s grace and His will be done in my life. I refuse to lose and am strong on the journey!! To God be ALL the glory in this!!

  2. We will definitely be praying for Stefan on Friday!

    I just spent the afternoon with a dear friend who is recovering from the same surgery and he is doing well, and full of hope. May it be so for Stef and his family. Our God is able to do abundantly beyond all we can ask or even think!
    Thank you for posting the picture; I always like having an image in my mind, when praying for others.

    Bless you!

  3. Count on it. Prayers for God’s peace and the comfort of the Holy Spirit upon Stef’s precious family, too.

    Stef is blessed to have a bro in Christ like you, Aaron.

  4. All – I can’t thank you enough for committing to pray for Stef!

    “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” -Hebrews 4:16

  5. Stef and his family are in our prayers today! I’m not a fan of southern gospel music, but I heard this song several years ago and it came to mind this morning when I was praying for Stef. It’s called “Through the Fire”.

    “He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
    And the hill would not be hard to climb
    He never offered our victories without fighting
    But He said help would always come in time
    Just remember when your standing in the valley of decision
    And the adversary says give in
    Just hold on, our Lord will show up
    And He will take you through the fire again”

    Our Lord WILL show up and bring Stef through this!!!
    God Bless,
    The Lusher Family

  6. Jenny – I read your comment while I was sitting in the waiting room today and it was perfect. Thank you for taking the time to post it. God was and will continue to be glorified today. He “showed up”! Amen!!

    Pamela – Thanks for sharing the journey with Stef and for joining us in prayer. I know he is overwhelmed (as am I) by the response and outpouring of love he has seen.

    To God be the Glory!
