Requesting Prayer

We are so grateful for your prayers thus far on our journey; we have truly felt them. We are coming once again with a prayer request. One family member (Mary) has come down with a bad flu/cold. It hit her hard, and we know when one person has something, the rest are very susceptible to catching it. Please pray for the Lord’s healing on Mary, and that He would somehow protect the rest of us, and if we do get it, that it would be a milder version. It’s hard when speaking/ministering to be sick; she did such a good job tonight even when she wasn’t feeling well.

Thank you! We’ll keep you updated!

Sarah for the rest

“And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick” (Luke 5:31).

  1. Praying for Mary to get well soon and that the rest of y’all don’t catch it (or at least not as bad!). Many blessings to y’all!

  2. We pray for you everyday and we feel priveleged to add this to our prayers. Drink lots of water, Mary, and rest, rest, rest!

  3. Hello Maxwell Family! We will be praying for you.

    As I read this, this came to mind……you may already know this, but just in case……some natural things we have used to help with the cold/flu were

    vitamin C

    We have taken them as a preventative too.

    Enjoying reading your blog….thanks for updating 🙂

    Praying for you all,


    Thank you!–Sarah

  4. Oh, the poor dear! 🙁 I’ll be praying for her, and for all of you!!!! I know how tough it is to sing and all when you have a bad cold. 🙁

    Blessings to you all!
    Safe travels and stay well!

  5. Dear Sarah,

    Tell Mary she’ll have our prayers as God brings her to mind! Poor thing!
    Hope ya’ll don’t catch it! I’m praying for your trip. Can’t wait for you to get back home! Be fruitful! God bless. Love, Rebecca

  6. I was sorry to hear that Mary is not feeling well. I’ll be praying for her to be feeling well again and for the rest of you to be protected from getting it. It’s so hard when you’re in such close quarters.

  7. Commenting on the above comment, we have found that chewing garlic with/in lemon juice helps to either not get sick at all or to lighten the sickness. The lemon juice could be either a really strong lemon water or just straight lemon juice. The lemon juice helps make the garlic not as spicy.

    Just another one of God’s natural resources to help us,
    Hope this helps.

  8. I forgot to mention that:

    *it is RAW garlic we chew in lemon juice
    *and everyone one down to our now 5year old takes garlic this way in order to avoid getting sick

  9. We will pray for quick healing for Mary and for protection for the rest of the family! Get well soon, Mary!!

  10. Praying for you guys – I will also add to the above list of natural remedies high doses of Vitamin D3. We just had a bad bout of the flu here as well and D3, garlic, and echinacea/goldenseal capsules seemed to be the treatments that were most effective. Prayers are with you as you travel and minister.

  11. We are most definitely praying for you all on your trip and now for poor Mary as well! Praying she feels better very soon and that none of you get sick too.

  12. Praying, in Jesus’ name, that He heal Mary completely…
    -that He protect the health of the rest of the family
    -that He give all of you peace and joy (you know the saying “if you’re going to pray, don’t worry, if you’re going to worry, don’t pray…)
    -that He continue to grant you traveling mercies.

  13. I am so sorry about Mary’s illness, and am praying for her to feel better and be well SOON. Bless her heart – – I hope she’s able to rest as much as possible and is drinking lots of fluids. I’m also praying for the other Maxwells to stay healthy. ~ A couple of weeks ago I had a terrible cold/flu (finally had to visit the doctor). What helped me the most was REST and “Children’s Benadryl liquid” (yes, I’m an adult but that liquid worked very well on me!). 🙂 Continued prayers, Patti M.
