Carolyn JonesMotherI am coming to you for a request in prayers from everyone on the prayer chain. My Mother (Xzanna Christine Harris) is in the hospital with a very weak heart. Doctors say she only has 20% of her heart strength left and it is unrepairable. She has fluid in her lungs and around her heart, her organs are failing more every day. She is tiny and frail. God is in the process of making a place for her and she will be leaving us at anytime. Pray for her peace and comfort as she prepares for her journey to be in the arms of God. I am in Virginia Beach with my family and have been here since Sunday and I have to fly back home this Sunday. Pray for my family that we can all agree on what is best for Mom right now and what will be best for my Father after Mom goes. He is very very attached to Mom and he has dementia and really don’t know  what’s going on. All he wants to do is kiss on her and hold her hand. Also, none of my family has been able to get decent sleep and is emotional. Pray we can channel our sadness and fear into love and support for each other.  Carolyn Jones
