Update: Thank you for your prayers! Macy received a 3-year sentence yesterday. That is the lesser end of what she could have gotten, but devastating none the less, when you think about her children and family over the next few years. We are beginning to pray now about the hope of a parole, and obviously the lawyers are working on the appeal case as well. Thank you for your continued prayers…
Many of you remember the situation with my sister-in-law Macy that I shared with you back in April. The only reason I bring any of this up in such a public place is because our family covets your prayers so very much. Tomorrow (Monday) is Macy’s sentencing hearing. Please be praying for the judge, for God to pour out His mercy on this situation, for truth to prevail, for Macy and her children during this desperate time.
Here are some scriptures I am praying over Macy and tomorrow…please join me.
“When Macy is set upon by bullies or other wickedness, please help her and deliver her. Deliver her from the wicked and save her, because she takes refuge in You.” Psalm 37:40
“Thank You that You have redeemed Macy and called her by name; she is yours. When she passes through the waters be with her. When she passes through the rivers, do not let them sweep over her. When she walks through the fire, do not let her be burned.” Isaiah 43:1-2
“Let Macy (and her family) take refuge in you and be glad; let us ever sing for joy. Spread protection over Macy that she may rejoice in You.” Psalm 5:11
“Give Macy victory and be her shield. Guard her course and protect her way.” Proverbs 2:7-8
“Let Macy dwell in the shelter of the Most High and rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Be her refuge, her fortress, her covering, her shield. Do not let her fear the terror of the night, nor any type of plague or sickness. Do not let any harm or disaster come near Macy. Command your angels to guard her in all her ways and keep her from hurting herself. When she calls on You, answer her. Be with her in trouble; deliver her and honor her. Satisfy Macy with long life and show her Your salvation.” Psalm 91
“Keep Macy from all harm. Watch over her life; watch over her coming and going, both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8
“Put a hedge of protection and blessing around Macy and everything she has.” Job
“Give Macy the weapons she needs to demolish strongholds, arguments, and ever pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of You, Lord. Help Macy to take captive every thought she has to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor. 10:4-5
“Keep Macy from the snares the enemy has laid for her, from the traps set by evildoers. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while she passes by in safety.” Psalm 141:9-10
“Clothe Macy with Your full armor so that she can take her stand against the devil’s schemes. Help her to stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around her waist and the breastplate of righteousness in place. Fit her feet with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Give Macy the shield of faith, with which she can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Place the helmet of salvation on her head and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word, in her hands. Finally, teach her to pray, and to be alert.” Ephesians 6:11-18
