Rev. Tim Sisk, the former pastor of St. Andrew's in
Amory, was gracious enough to pen this blessing for the
site. We thank him for leading us in prayer.
Our Gracious God,
who taught us that love and kindness
are works of your divinity, bless those that travel to this site,
who are inspired by the life and art
of John Dye, who discover a community of creativity
and kindness, may they be filled by your love,
leaving footprints of mercy, in their
communities and homes. May the grace, love, and fellowship of God be
with them all. Amen.
Please pray for my son John, who
is 22 and has been in a downward spiral for a few
months now. He quit his job, spent all his
money he has saved, attempted suicide twice, one
time involving the police and citations,
misdemeanors, etc., which resulted in jail time
after his hospital stay. As he is an adult,
I have no control over his decisions in regards to
therapy and in-patient treatment. He is
taking medication to control his behavior, which
is either bi-polar or manic, and although it has
helped a little, it has rendered him incapable of
being alone without constant supervision. My
husband lost his job due to covid, so most of the
burden falls on him. It is tearing my family
apart. I pray that God will lay his loving
hands on my son and heal his brain, cast out all
mental illness and manic behavior and suicidal
thoughts. I pray our son will someday be the
son we used to have. Amen.
With much love, gratitude and thanks to this
amazing group, and my infinite love to John, our
Angel, who I absolutely adore and pray I will meet
in heaven. If love can transcend Heaven and
Earth, he surely knows I love him.
My fiancé was admitted to hospital
about one month ago with acute pneumonia.

We pray that this holiday season is a peaceful,
healing, and love-filled one. With all the
strife in the world, may we all be inspired to do what
we can to promote kindness, compassion, and
understanding. May God's merciful and unfailing
love be our support and strength.
Please pray for all of those suffering during the Ebola
outbreak, both those with the disease and those who are

A couple that I've known for awhile, who are still
relatively young (in their 60s), have been really going
through some trials, the wife has had Alzheimers now for
about 5 years. It's progressed very quickly and they now
only give her weeks to live. The husband has been a pillar
of strength and continues to care for her alone, still
even bringing her to church every Sunday. A few days ago
he was pushing her in a wheelchair through their home and
something caught the wheel. The sudden stop threw her
forward and out onto the floor. She had to have stitches
and looks very bad. He is already having much difficulty
in facing the fact that she could pass any day but now he
is riddled with guilt on top of that. Please keep them
both, Gary and Laura, in your prayers.

all my FACEBOOK friends and Family to pray for My
