God hears and He answers
As the prayer ministry of Capital Life Church, we are committed to prayer and intercession for the local church body, church leadership, and those in need. We lift up the name of our Savior on others’ behalf and build one another up through the peace and power of the Holy Spirit. We teach others to pray by example, teaching, discipling, corporate prayer and altar ministry. Our mission is to inspire and encourage a meaningful prayer life for each church community member.
Updated request- I’m on 3rd pregnancy & my test results on my liver didn’t come back awesome- my crazy itchiness is from my liver putting too much bile in my blood. My levels are high enough some dr’s diagnose ICP but others wait and see and use a different cut off number, so my office is sticking with the test and retest monitoring. If things escalate then rather than constantly being itchy, I’m suddenly considered high risk, booted out of my natural birth center and looking at forced early induction of a baby who shouldn’t otherwise be born yet, which all terrifies me after 2 great natural experiences with birth, otherwise, it’s just the stress of retesting every couple weeks for next 3 months and physically being more miserable than simply 3rd trimester, between feeling so itchy & the antihistamines & the condition making me tired, fussier, and more emotional, so please keep our family lifted up.
I’m busy chasing a very active (& screechy lately!) toddler at home, the on-duty parent to him, my homeschooling teen & 2 stepchildren for the last couple months straight, with no end in sight to the trips that have landed them home with us full time lately, so it’ll again be me on-duty daily for all four rather than just 1/2 time with those two of our kiddos.
I’m feeling a bit disconnected between stress, hormones, tasks, not really knowing anyone closely where we now live and my husband having to work a ton extra right now, and trying to reorganize, declutter and such ahead of our next baby’s arrival, but am pretty darn pooped between life, the medicine, the side effects of what’s going on with my liver and stress is a main thing I’m supposed to keep in check for what’s going on in my body, and just pregnant folks in general too, so trying to do self care, organize myself, take short cuts and such, where I can.
Please also pray God would open up more doors for building friendships locally, as I loved both of our longtime communities we lived in but really have had a hard time finding much of a sense of community once we moved farther out, and not for lack of trying. May God open the right doors with that and guide the process, and also that no bitterness, resentment, sadness or fear take hold during this current season, but that the focus would stay on God, remaining grateful, reliant and positive. Thanks CLC family. I’m grateful for all these many years you’ve made a difference in my family’s life!
