Prayer Warriors I Could Use You

Share Button

This week isn’t easy, it’s the week before I head into a legal mediation for my car accident which occurred three and a half years ago. Already I find my anxiety and pain levels have increased and I know the only answer is to trust that God has my back. I believe in the power of prayer and today I am humbly asking you to pray that I will have the strength, courage and patience to get through this time in a graceful manner.

Anyone who has ever had the misfortune of being involved in a legal case knows it’s not fun. It feels like everything is out of my control, all I can do is be truthful and hope that a settlement can be reached. That’s just plain logical but right now my anxiety wants me to lose control and weep in a corner while hiding from the BIG SCARY unknown.

Suddenly as I’m trying to write how my life has changed since the accident I’m coming up blank. My mind is addled by the pain and the fear. I need to be concise, to share the facts as they are and to clearly convey how this has affected my family and yet……my human nature is kicking in. It could also be PTSD or any other of the diagnoses I’ve been labelled with but in the end the point is I need your prayers.

The Power of Prayer

If you could find it in your heart to pray for me I’d be grateful.

Prayer has worked in my life in the past. The people who prayed for my sobriety, the people who prayed for healing post-accident, the people who pray with me for the things I have needed God to hear…..these prayer warriors have impacted my life.

God is AWESOME and can provide anything…..this time I’m openly asking and with the added power of your voices I know I’ll get through this time intact, able to present myself and still be a loving Mother and Wife for my family.

Right now I’m not strong, I’m a mess inside but have learned to ask for help.

Please pray that I can get the sleep which has been so elusive, that my thoughts will be calm and centred in my faith, that I will not forget to eat to fuel my body, that my medications will help reduce my pain……

Thankfully I have a strong circle of support; my family who loves me, my bff who comes by just to hug me, my long-distance friend who is reviewing my account of events and my darling husband and girls who breath joy into my days.

With these people, your prayers and God I can get through anything.

    Praying for you, Julie! Don’t worry – God is going to be holding your hand the whole time. Sleep well (Prov. 3:24 – “When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.”) and have faith. Your Father, who loves you more than you can imagine, will go before you and will be with you; He will never leave or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. (Deut. 31:8)

    I can relate, it’s actually bringing back memories… be strong and give God total control. Letting go, I think, is the hardest thing to do in life as we have a tendency to want to control it all. In the end, it will work out and you will come out a better person. All prayers are definitely answered, hang in there.

    Julie, I am fairly new to your blog, within the last month or so. I like you because you are so “real”. You are a good person. You made a mistake. We all make mistakes. I hope you will feel the presence of those who care about you. I have a couple of close friends & when we’re scared or going through a difficult time we always tell each other, “keep me in your pocket……….i’ll be right there with you.” So, keep us in your pocket. Slip your hand in & we’ll be there to hold it. Your pocket is probably crowded with several of us! IT’S A PARTY IN THERE! I will pray for peace & comfort as you go through this part of your life.

    I do pray although not consistent and will put you in them, trials are nerve racking but you can always think this is the start of closure, even though medical conditions are from this life event I think of it as a book, the court is one chapter, health another etc and for each chapter I close the better the book! Just my 2 cents!

    Praying for you Julie! I have gone through this myself and i was a mess to say the least. Thankfully we reached a settlement and didn’t go to trial!
