Therapy, Birthday, and Free Access

"For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself." (Hebrews 7:26-27)

Because Jesus offered up himself, we have permanent and perfect access to God. Jesus took on the wrath of God so that we could pray. He went through a lot so that we could come to God at any time. That makes me want to take full advantage of prayer!

Ian seems to be back to his old self again (for the last week or so, he hasn't seemed to feel very well). Pray that the therapists would see regular progress at therapy. 

Also, Ian's 23rd birthday is tomorrow, so pray that he would receive encouragement for a birthday gift.

Happy Birthday, IAN!!!
May you feel the love today that your friends, your family, and your God have for you!
My Scripture-a-day calendar for 4/16 reads:
"I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being"
Ephesians 3:16

Still Praying!
