Prayer needs for Mr. Clean

Per TCC's comment on my earlier post I have decided to take her up on that and make a list of specific prayer request for Mr. Clean.

1. He is in the process of applying for several jobs and needs favor because there are several hundred people applying as well. We need higher pay, benefits and medical. I would love to stay home with my children! That has been a desire of mine for quite some time.

2. We are in the process of finishing our basement. Once finished we will have a family room, Laundry room, Master bedroom w/ 2 walk in closets, a bathroom and a kids playroom. We have studded and updated our electrical. There is a few more electrical things that must be done before we can start to hang insulation and then drywall. We have been working on this for a year and a half but took a break over the summer to add a garage and we re-sided our house. So now that the outside work is almost complete we can start back on the basement.

3. Health. Mr. Clean works in construction now and comes home in pain every night. His body has taken a lot over the last three years and it is starting to break him. He comes home with a new injury almost 3 times a week. Please pray for protection over him as he works in high places with lots of power tools.

4. Spiritual growth. He feels as though he has slacked off a bit because of working 2 jobs and trying to remodel before the baby comes. Please pray that a new hunger for the Lord would arise in him once again.

I think that about covers it. We really do appreciate all your prayers and we wouldn't know what to do without them. We are truly blessed to have so many stand beside us in prayer. Love you gals!

Congrats on the boy! You will love having boys - there's something so amazing about the way little boys see the world. Not to mention how they love their mommas! :)

Praying for a a great new job, a great re-model for the house and his heart :), and for some down time to enjoy each other before the new little guy arrives, too!
