I've also had some dear friends and dear family on my mind who having wrestled with many past obstacles and are just this week enjoying the most amazing blessings--Praise the Lord!! And those who are struggling publicly (B and J) and those are are struggling privately (the Lord knows!) and I'm so thankful that God is bigger than me and strong enough to carry everyone's burden. I think the doxology is in order, because really, after you've made your requests known there isn't anything for us but to praise Him!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Praise Him all creatures here below!
Praise Him above ye Heavenly Hosts!
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!
