Thank you in joining in prayers for my dear friends who desperately need God's help! Mimi
Elizabeth Bressert Update
Sunday, May 19th, 6pm
After 8 days in the hospital we are going home. She vomited from admittance through day 5, and went backwards while doctors tried everything.
(For those praying about the gallbladder, the test showed the gallbladder is fine but something less major wrong which Dr.s say is not contributing to the current situation and handled at a later date.) Day 6 started eating with IV Meds, Day 7 started eating with oral meds. Managing at home, we have a list of meds to take throughout the day. Im thanking God for the breakthrough and turn around. Praying for continued success (not vomiting) and for Elizabeth to regain strength and weight. Thank you for all your prayers!!! God is good.

A national day of prayer was called for by the first Continental Congress in 1775 and was first established by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. In 1952, Congress unanimously voted to establish a National Day of Prayer. The day was made official when President Harry S. Truman signed it into law. In 1988, Congress and President Ronald Reagan amended the law to designate the first Thursday in May as National Day of Prayer.
1863 Abraham Lincoln called for such a day.
WHEREAS, The Senate of the United States; devoutly recognizing the Supreme authority and just government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.
And Whereas, it is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
And, inasmuch as we know that by His Divine law, nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people?
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity.
We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown.
BUT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN GOD.
We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; And have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
IT BEHOOVES US, THEN, TO HUMBLE OURSELVES BEFORE THE OFFENDED POWER, TO CONFESS OUR NATIONAL SINS,
AND TO PRAY TO THE GOD THAT MADE US!
Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of National Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer. And I do hereby request all the people to abstain on that day from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope, authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less the pardon of our national sins, and restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condition of unity and peace.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington the 30th day of March, in the year of our Lord 1863.
Signed by Abraham Lincoln President of the U.S.A.
William H Seward,
Secretary of State
"Message: Latest on Elizabeth Bressert, I just got this as a text from Ann. Elizabeth Bressert Update. Wednesday, May 1st Since my last update on April 22nd, Liz has been in the hospital 5 of the 9 days. In short, new meds and amts from the new Doctor have improved things somewhat, but are not turning her around enough to keep her from loosing weight and keep her out of the hospital, There is one med left to try and it has to come through customs (pray that it does) from Canada. They said it is a 2 - 4 week delivery time. Please pray that it arrives much quicker. Blessings, Tom & Anne Bressert"
Let's continue to lift her up.
