(soo-MAH-trah) – Mrs. Sue is a widow and has relied on her grown son to take care of her.

Please pray that the Lord will soften the heart of Mrs. Sue’s son so that he will not be angry but will accept this decision. Please pray that Mrs. Sue’s son will hear how the Lord has worked in her heart and answered her prayers and that he will also believe.
