78- Answered Prayers, Unanswered Prayers
Because my Aunt Ida was in critical condition in the hospital, Mark and I flew to Oxnard to visit her. Although she was a serious Catholic I was not sure if she had made her peace with God through Jesus.
August 1, 1982
I feel the need to be purposeful and specific in prayer during this visit home….great spiritual battle for Ida’s soul.
