Sunday Songs - Lion of Judah

Verse 1
You're the Lion of Judah
The Lamb who was slain
You ascended to heaven
And ever more will reign
At the end of the age
When the earth You reclaim
You will gather the nations before You
And the eyes of all men
Will be fixed on the Lamb
Who was crucified
With wisdom and mercy and justice
You'll reign at Your Father's side

Chorus 1
And the angels will cry hail the Lamb
Who was slain for the world rule in pow'r
And the earth will reply You shall reign
As the King of all kings
And the Lord of all lords

Verse 2
There's a shield in our hand
And a sword at our side
There's a fire in our spirits
That cannot be denied
'Cause the Father has told us
For these You have died
For the nations who gather before You
And the ears of all men
Need to hear of the Lamb
Who was crucified
Who descended to hell
Yet was raised up to reign
At His Father's side

And the angels will cry hail the Lamb
Who was slain for the world rule in pow'r
And the earth will reply You shall reign
As the King of all kings
And the Lord of all lords

Bob DeWaay June 2015 Health Update and Prayer Request

Please pray for my dad, Bob DeWaay.
He just returned from seeing his
Rheumatologist and his Churg Strauss indicators are much worse.
He wants to do another round of Rituxan treatments. We are waiting for the insurance company to approve the treatments. He has had this treatment once before. Please pray that if this is what is needed to get the disease back under control that it would be successful and that the insurance company would approve it. Pray also that his body will tolerate the treatments with few side effects.

He's Home!

From my mom:

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised!!! It is with great joy I 
am letting you know I brought my beloved husband Bob home late this 
afternoon. It is such a relief to have him home and I am so grateful to 
God for sparing his life. Thank you to everyone who prayed for us, who 
encouraged us and have helped us out along the way. For all the help we 
have received financially and rides and visits, thank you from the 
bottom of our hearts. We are humbled and deeply grateful by the care and 
help we have received from Gospel of Grace Fellowship and our brothers 
and sisters in Christ around the world. He truly has supplied our needs. 
When I got home with him this afternoon, someone had raked the leaves in 
our yard and off all of my perennials in my flower beds and in back 
along the garage that were growing above the leaves. I have no idea who 
did it. God bless whoever did it.

The oxygen company was here early this evening and have him all set up 
with portable tanks we have to fill everyday and a long hose that comes 
upstairs to plug into his CPAP at night.
Please pray he continues to gain strength and that his lungs improve and 
will process air by themselves without assistance.

Lamentations 3: 22-24  The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, 
For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy 
faithfulness, " The Lord is my portion, " says my soul, "Therefore I 
have hope in Him."

Bob DeWaay Health Update -Wednesday

Bob had a good day today. He is determined to go home so he is working hard to make that happen. For those of you who know him well, he can be very determined and strong willed. He has been up all day either in a chair or sitting on the couch in his room. His physical therapy went well and we took a walk down the hallway this afternoon. I pushed the oxygen tank and he walked slowly, occasionally using the hand rails when they were available. They turned his oxygen level down one degree today and he is tolerating it alright. He will go home with oxygen. Right now they are talking about releasing him Friday afternoon. He has an order for intravenous steroids through Friday and that is usually given to him at noon, so I think he could go home in the afternoon if he continues to do well. Thank you again for praying for us and please continue to lift us before the Lord. Pray Bob would continue to get stronger and that his lungs would heal and process air normally.

Bob DeWaay Health - Tuesday Update

Hello friends! Thank you so much for your continued prayers. I did get to speak with my Dad briefly today. He can't talk much but it was good to hear him. He loves his new room and is very thankful to be out of the ICU. Here is an update from my mom:

Today has been a relatively good day. It has been fairly uneventful - finally. It is his first day out of ICU and he mainly rested. He was up in his room only and with oxygen. It still makes his oxygen levels drop when moves around. 

Tomorrow he will start physical therapy. He saw his pulmonary specialist today and his x-ray today shows his lungs look the same and sound the same. They will take him off of intravenous steroids tomorrow and he will be taking it in pill form, which is a good step forward. He has been taken out of isolation, he is over the flu.

 The goal now is to get him stronger and his lungs functioning better. They told him it will just take time for his lungs to heal and function properly. So continue to pray that would happen. 

Thank you everyone for lifting us before the Lord so faithfully. We appreciate it so much. God has been so gracious and good to us!
