Thank you for your prayers for Anna Marie. Her surgery is scheduled for about 10 am, Eastern time, Tuesday, the 18th.

Anna Marie has a beautiful spirit throughout this whole situation and truly is leaning on the Lord Jesus as her strength.

Thank you for covering Anna Marie, the surgeon, the medical staff, and Christopher in prayer.

  1. I was hoping you would include the time of surgery! – I will be praying for her.

    Did Anna Marie cut her hair? It looks different than in other pictures…

  2. Anna Marie and Christopher, I will be praying for you all day on Tuesday. God has you in the palm of His hand! His perfect peace will surround you and His angels are encamped round about you! Rest your lives into His hands and know that He is going to work this situation out for good, to be a shining TESTIMONY to thousands of the victory and peace Christ can give! He is going to heal you, help you, and hold you tightly in His arms. He already sees past tomorrow like it’s already over. He’s walked every step of the future before you. Nothing shakes or concerns Him so commit yourselves fully to our loving, caring Lord! And remember that all throughout the day on Tuesday the 18th, brothers and sisters all around the world will be holding up your hands for you in prayer (Exodus 17:12). You will win this battle!! And God will be glorified!!!

    “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. … I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
    Psalms 27:1-3, 13-14

  8. We are offering up the trials of our day here for Anna Marie and a successful surgery. Jesus, I trust in You!

  9. We are praying for you Anna Marie, Christopher, the surgical team, and your entire family. I had major chest surgery in Chicago in 2009. My children and I had just memorized Psalm 34. I was thankful to have Jesus to pray to, and the memorized chapter. Anna Marie, you look radiantly beautiful.The beach looks cold but serene. Where are you having this done?
    Psalm 34:
    I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord : the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord , and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord , ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord . What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
    Psalms 34:1-22 KJ
    Many hugs to you all, many prayers continually.

  10. At 10AM eastern time it will be cloudy and rainy here in Pennsylvania, but in the operating room it will be bright with light and the love of your family and all the people praying for Anna Marie. Thank God ahead of time. You need courage now.
    Lots of hope sent to you and your family,

  11. I’ve already been praying for Anna Marie this morning and will continue throughout the day. I just saw this post about the time of surgery which is good to know. I’m praying for the Lord to fill her with His peace and strength and to calm any fears or anxiety she may have. I pray for the utmost skill of the surgeon and nurses caring for her. I’m praying also for Christopher as it has to be hard for him to see his wife going through this. I pray for those precious children while mommy and daddy have to be away, and I pray for all of the extended family who will lovingly care for them. Many prayers and thoughts for Anna Marie and all of you today and in the coming days! God bless you all.

  12. “There is none like the God of Jeshurun, who rideth the heavens in thy help…the eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:26,27

    Our hearts and prayers are with you
    Dear Anna, Christopher, Sweet Children and Family.

  13. I am praying!

    Isaiah 41:10
    Fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
    I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    Much love, Trish

  14. Praying all goes well. I am guessing she’s out east somewhere, as the picture looks like Lake MI or the Atlantic Ocean! Thanks for keeping us posted.

  15. Praying earnestly for Anna Marie, her family, and the doctors. So thankful for her and Christopher’s priceless example of living for Jesus. May the Lord grant her many more healthy years to love those children!

  16. Been praying and will continue. Thanks so much for the updates!! Hope all is well on the home front too.

  17. Praying for them and the medical team! May God be with y’all and give y’all the strength to go through each day ahead!

  18. Stay yourselves on Him;He is ever faithful!I came across this verse the other day:
    “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”-Isa.4:32
    In Trials
    He is in control
    Yield Him your mind and soul.
    My thoughts and My ways,
    Are higher He says.
    Peace, be still
    I am with you and always will
    Do what I know is best for you.
    My pastor recently preached on how God is glorified more when His servant passes THROUGH the flame. May God continue to be glorified in your lives. I’m praying for you.

  19. You are such a dear family and I know God is working out his will through this trial. Your attitudes are a testimony of God’s presence in your everyday lives, especially Anna Marie. It has been a tear jerker to watch you walk this journey. Yet a comfort to know your hope is in Jesus and not this world’s answers. A great example. I am praying.

  20. Always praying. Prayed as soon as I woke up this morning in N.Z too

    You are VERY PRECIOUS to the Lord, Anna Marie!

    More value than many sparrows…
