Michelle (Mason) and Nick Cannariato Prayer Update, Saturday, May 1, 11am9
Michelle had a tougher day on Friday, but she's still smiling on Saturday. She’s experiencing pain in her right side, which has hampered her important physical therapy. This pain may be caused by nerve “reconnection.”
This morning Michelle spelled out with her fingers three areas of prayer she would like from you:
1. That God would lessen the pain in her right side so she can continue the hard, good work of therapy.
2. For her husband Nick, that God’s mercy and strength would continue to fall upon him.
3. That each of us would understand and believe that Jesus loves us so much, just as Nick and Michelle have discovered. They want all to understand the wonderful truth that Jesus died on the cross to pay the punishment for our sins so we can become friends with God and enjoy living for Him forever.
God’s word, the bible says, “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.” (2 Corinthians 5.19.) All of us have goofed up and sinned. All of us are alienated from God by our sin and we can’t make amends, no matter how hard we try. But here’s the good news, God no longer holds our sins against us when we believe and trust in His Son’s life, death and resurrection for us.
