Prayer Chain for Chrissie

We are blessed to have our friend Julie Jacobsen heading up the organization of a prayer chain for Chrissie's open-heart surgery.  Please read her note that I've pasted here, and if you would like to sign up for a specific prayer time for Chrissie, please contact Julie:  We are so grateful for each of you and the powerful, priceless gift of prayer. 

From Julie:

Dear Friends of the Patterson Family,
You are invited to join a 24 hour prayer chain for sweet Chrissie Patterson during her upcoming heart surgery and recovery. I know that many of us are already praying for her, but it was Lorraine's hope that somehow she could be intensively covered for the day of her surgery and the first 2 days following (which will prove to be most critical in her healing process).
WHEN: Monday, February 22nd (day of surgery)
Tuesday, February 23rd
Wednesday, February 24th
TIME: 12:00 am to 12:00 pm daily (Central Time Zone)
RSVP: To Julie,  or call 512/847-6650
DETAILS: If you can cover an hour or any part of an hour during this 3 day time span, please contact me and let me know. I will need to know your top 3 choices in order of preference, I will then contact you to confirm your time. I will also generate reminders the day before your commitment.
As an added blessing to the Patterson family, I also ask that you visit Lorraine's blog site either at the start or end of your prayer time to post any scripture or encouragement that the Lord gives you to share. You can be as simple or complex as you choose it to be, but please include the time of day in your posting.
I will send more detailed prayer requests as the time draws near for Chrissie's surgery. Lorraine will also continue posting details on both her blog spot and the Caring Bridge page.
Isn't it great that God has adopted us into His family and that in times like this we can join together as one - having possibly never met each other - but fully confident that we are family and that God the Father listens to us? I hope you will all join us in interceding for Chrissie during this time.
May God bless you, keep you, make His face shine upon you and give you peace!
- Julie Jacobsen
