prayers for jessica

Today's post is asking for prayers; hourly prayers, daily prayers or any prayers you can give. These prayers are not for me; they are for this sweet girl below.

This beautiful girl is Jessica Joy Rees and she is in the 6th grade. I heard about Jessica's story this week from my mom. Jessica's father Erik Rees was my mother's boss and is a pastor at Saddleback Church. On March 3rd an MRI found an inoperable tumor in her brain and she is currently receiving radiation and chemo at CHOC. Jessica and her family need our prayers now. Yesterday her dad said, "PLEASE keep asking your family and friends to pray for my daughter Jessie. We need God to show up BIG TIME! Please pass it on." So I am passing it on. I have enough faith to believe in a miracle.

So what can you do besides praying for Jessica?

* You can go to her website to get more information!

* You can become a fan on her Facebook page; she has a goal for 10,000 fans so that she can help spread joy and NEGU (never ever give up).

*You can also sign up to get more information on her JoyJars, which are jars that will be filled with goodies and the proceeds will go to CHOC and cancer research. She is hoping they will be ready by May 1st, so we can all support her by buying them.

*If you would like more information or to send deliveries you can contact:

Rick Brotherton

* You can provide a blessing by sending a gift of Restaurants on the Run to her family. Gift certificates can be purchased and sent immediately by email to Or you can send a Shell Gas Gift Card to the address above. Daily trips back and forth to CHOC has to be expensive. Jessie also loves Chick-fil-a, Jamba Juice, In-N-Out, Simon Gift Cards, Subway, Starbucks, California Pizza Kitchen and PF Changs.

* You can also organize an event to raise money for Jessie or incorporate NEGU or JoyJars. Just contact Rick Brotherton at the info above.

This blog is all about faith and I know that is what Jessica and her family are living off of now. Let's be a part of their story. Jessica's bible verses are:

"I can do all things through him who strengthens me." – Philippians 4:13

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9

Lots of love to Jessica and her family and I am dedicated to praying for them and helping in any way that they might need me.
