Prayer Request

UPDATE: 11:00 PM

Lyndon just called to let us know that Linda is in the presence of our Almighty Father! King Jesus! She is at His feet and she is worshiping the Lord.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. Lyndon said he could tell that people were praying. He is on his way now from Houston back to his home in DeRidder, La. Continue to pray for him and his family. The funeral will be Monday at 2PM.

You are all so special to me. It is so nice to have a place to go where you know prayers will be lifted up to the Throne.

In Him,
Beth


UPDATE: 4:30 Pm

Lyndon called and talked with my husband. He said that Linda's BP is 20/10 and her heart is beating about 14 beats per minute. He has just been by her side all day. Just waiting. Jimbo said he sounded very tired. But Linda's mother arrived and perhaps he said she was waiting on her mom. Her mom is in her mid 80's. Please continue to pray. Thank you so much! You are all so fabulous.

We got a call early this morning from a college buddy and good Pastor friend of my husbands. Lyndon Longoria is a full-time evangelist and an awesome Man of God. His wife Linda has been battling Myleoma since about May of last year. She has undergone several rounds of Chemo and was at MD Anderson for a stem cell transplant. They had recovered enough stem cells and were waiting for her lungs to heal. She started having trouble yesterday with her breathing and couldn't get the carbon monoxide out of her lungs. It just keep getting worse and when Lyndon called this morning, Linda had slipped into a coma and her blood pressure is almost non-existent. She is about to be in the Presence of God.

Please pray for Lyndon as he watches the love of his life slip away from this earth. Please pray for comfort and peace and strength. His 2 grown children are there and they need much prayer also. I know I have some prayer warriors out there!

Oh precious Father, please take Lyndon in your arms and show him love that only You are capable of. Lord, give him the kind of strength that only You can give. Give him such a peace that he has no doubt it is of You. Lord I pray for your Spirit to minister to Lyndon, Billy and Kelly right now. That they can feel your presence with them. As Linda is ushered out of this world and into the Throne room of heaven, give them a spirit of Joy knowing that she is in Your Presence!

Thank you all for your prayers. They are very special people to us. Lyndon has spent several occassions in our home when he comes to preach our revivals. He and my husband (Jimbo) have been friends for about 33 years.
Lyndon will be lost without his sweet bride, but I know that the Lord will stengthen him as only He can.

Prayerfully,
Beth

Father,

Touch this servant of Yours, as only You can. You know the hurt that is there now, as well as the well of love for his other half. Lord, make Your presence known to this husband and their children. Amen.
