without ceasing for Joanne….

Most of you are aware of our prayers over my friend, Joanne.

If you aren’t aware, Joanne suffered a major stroke Tuesday morning while running on her treadmill at home.

Her husband, Toben is updating her blog when he is able over at The Simple Wife.  Her sister, Kristen wrote a lovely post this morning at khphotography.  It’s an indescribable way of life for all of them right now.  I covet your prayers over not only Joanne, but her family and friends.  If you are on the Twitter, you can follow Toben at tobenheim .  One of Joanne’s sweet friends, Janna has put together wonderful blessing buntings for Joanne’s hospital room.  Feel free to join in and either leave a comment for Janna to use or make your own blessing bunting.  I’m going to try and see if I can create a presentable one this weekend for her.

The other thing I wanted to share with you is a new way to join us (some of Joanne’s bloggy/online/twitter/Siesta/IRL friends) in corporate prayer time for Joanne.  We are blessed with help from Mary R. Snyder and GotoMeeting.  You don’t have to be on your computer to join us.  You can call in as well.  Here is the information you will need to join us tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. CST:

1.  Please join my meeting, Saturday, January 15 at 9:00 AM Central Standard Time.

2.  Use your microphone and speakers (VoIP) – a headset is recommended.  Or, call in using your telephone.

Dial +1 (773) 945-1017
Access Code: 179-444-233
Audio PIN: Shown after joining the meeting
Meeting ID: 179-444-233

I’ll have instructions on my computer screen and will read them as well.  It’s got some great recordable features to share.  It also has the opportunity for chatting while we pray that will enable us to share the scripture we are praying over her.  Mary will moderate while I host and lead our time of prayer over her.  So, join us.  Spread the word.  If you can’t join us, commit to pray for an hour at 9am CST tomorrow.  I’d love to hear about how God is moving in your prayer life over Joanne if you would like to share.

SSMT gals can send a page out of their scripture keeper to Joanne by mailing it to: Joanne Heim c/o Kristen Haufschild, 11004 Grayledge Circle, Highlands Ranch, CO 80130.  Kristen is plastering the hospital room with them as well.

Thank you for praying.  Please don’t stop.  Jo is fighting for her life.  She needs us.  I guarantee that she would be doing the very same thing for us.

I’m grateful.  Hope to hear you tomorrow morning!

  1. Hi my name is Carol I am from ALBUQUERQUE NM
    I had called the number to pray with you all this A.m. cannot tell you what a blessing I have never ever done anything like this before and I thought it was a pretty cool thing to lift a sister up in prayer who I only know thru the LPM blog
    after I got off the phone with you all The thought came to me in Matthew about how the cut a hole in the roof to lower the man who was paralized to Jesus and the other thought was for God just to pour His DNA through her body.
    Thank you all so much and hopefully I can join the other ones that you all have.
    I am also on twitter

    1. Carol,

      Thanks for blessing us this morning with your prayers over Joanne and her family. The same thought has come to mind to me over and over in regards to holding the four corners of her mat for her as we take her to Jesus. Powerful stuff. Powerful God. Praying along with you is an honor.

    1. Leigh: I just published a new post with details. The plan is to continue to update my blog with corporate prayer details and links for Joanne. Keep checking back and I will continue to update! Much love girl!
