I am so thankful on this Friday- one day shy of two weeks since Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot. Last night, her husband Mark Kelly took her up on the roof! This was her first time outside since the shooting. Today, she has left the hospital in Arizona and is now in rehab in Houston, Texas!

I have said numerous times throughout this prayer blog that Congresswoman Giffords life is nothing less than a miracle from God Almighty! I do not believe that ANYTHING happens without reason! I do not beleive in coincidence at all.

I continue to pray for Ms. Giffords as she starts down tis new road in her journey of recovery. It will not be easy for her, but I know with God's strength she will make it. I will continue to pray for her complete recovery until she takes her place back in Congress! I will also continue to pray for her husband, Mark Kelly, and all of her extended family and friends. I pray that God will grow Ms. Giffords and Mr. Kelly's marriage even stronger than it currently is.

Last night, a fellow tweeter that I've discussed this with thanked me for my continued prayers. This is the same person that I have mentioned previously, who has thanked me. No thanks is necessary, as I believe that God Almighty has called me to be a vigilant prayer warrior for Ms. Giffords, as well as this nation. What I did say to this person, in response, was, with the amazing recovery Ms. Giffords has already had, imagine what it would be if ALL Americans would put aside their differences in this situation, stop politicizing it and blaming others, and simply bow before God Almighty and pray for Ms. Giffords.

Our country is on a collision course with disaster if we do not change the direction we are going. I know God's Word, and I trust that He will honor His Word, if we obey Him. America- once again, I ask you to join me in prayer for this nation. I know that triumph can come from tragedy, because my life is a testament to this fact. God tells us if we will humble ourselves and pray, He WILL heal our land! Will you humble yourself with me?
