Urgent Prayer Request for Feroz

Daniel, my dear friend and brother in Christ sent this to me so I am sharing it with all my prayer partners and friends.  Please join me in prayer for Feroz and God, Master and Creator of the Universe be with you. – Briggie ^i^

 

Asking prayer for Feroz, a sister in Jesus, who was diagnosed with liver cancer.

We pray and declare that she be healed in the Mighty Name Of Jesus!

Feroz has decided against the chemotherapy which is the only medical treatment to the liver cancer. In addition to the chemo she would have to do a bone marrow transplant to be completely cured. This will include another series of chemo that will destroy her bone marrow and subsequently taking some from a sibling to replace hers.

Pastor Mckoy has called the church on a three days fasting commencing this Tues through to Thurs in order to seek God for her complete healing.

You are invited to join us as we unitedly pray for God’s miraculous intervention.

Thanks for your favourable response.

Yeshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6

Urgent Prayer Request For Joey & Wanda

Hello prayer warriors.  I need your prayers for my nephew Joey and my sister in law Wanda.  We just learned that Joey had some masses removed from his head and the doctors are sending the biopsies to be tested to rule our any chronic systemic fibrosis or lymphoma.  My sister in law Wanda was diagnosed with Lupus a few years ago and she is having a difficult time.

Please stand with me in prayer and agreement that the masses that have been removed from Joey will remain removed and that they be cancer free in the mighty and gracious name of Jesus.  Please also pray that God releases Wanda from the disease of Lupus and that He heals and restores her life to her bringing her strength and peace.

Lord, I know You hold Joey and Wanda in the palm of Your hand and that they are precious in Your sight.  I know Your plans for them are to prosper them and that they have a healthy and fruitful life.  I know that the blood of Your Son, Jesus flows through Joey and Wanda and brings life, healing and restoration so in Your name we declare Joey and Wanda healed.  We bind the enemy and declare him powerless.  Father God, we loose the powers of heaven and call forth healing.  We declare all cysts be dissolved and that the Lupus be removed in Jesus mighty name, amen.

Prayers are being answered for Maryam & Marzieh…

I received this from my friend Daniel, and while it is lengthy, it is well worth the time it takes to read.  Take care and may God bless you.

Our sisters in Jesus Christ Maryam and Marzieh, prisoners in Iran for their faith

Dear Friends,
This morning I was forwarded the following encouraging update from Philip Zodhiates, forwarded by Clay Sterrett, concerning our sisters in Jesus Christ in Iran, Maryam and Marzieh:
“In a dramatic session before the revolutionary court today in Tehran, Maryam Rustampoor (27) and Marzieh Amirizadeh (30) were told to recant their faith in Christ.

Though great pressure was put on them, both women declared that they would not deny their faith. Maryam and Marzieh were originally arrested on March 5, 2009 and have suffered greatly while in prison, suffering ill health, solitary confinement and interrogations for many hours while blindfolded.

On Saturday August 8, Maryam and Marzieh were summoned to appear in court on Sunday August 9 in order to hear a verdict on their case. The chief interrogator had recommended a verdict of ‘apostasy.’ However, when they arrived, no verdict was actually given. Instead, the court session focused on the deputy prosecutor, Mr. Haddad, questioning Maryam and Marzieh about their faith and telling them that they had to recant in both verbal and written form. This made it clear that in the eyes of the court, Maryam and Marzieh’s only crime is that they have converted to Christianity. 

Mr. Haddad, asked the two women if they were Christians. ‘We love Jesus,’ they replied. He repeated his question and they said, ‘Yes, we are Christians.’ Mr. Haddad then said, ‘You were Muslims and now you have become Christians.’ ‘We were born in Muslim families, but we were not Muslims,’ was their reply. Mr. Haddad’s questioning continued and he asked them if they regretted becoming Christians, to which they replied, ‘We have no regrets.’ Then he stated emphatically, ‘You should renounce your faith verbally and in written form.’ They stood firm and replied, ‘We will not deny our faith.’

During one tense moment in the questioning, Maryam and Marzieh made reference to their belief that God had convicted them through the Holy Spirit. Mr. Haddad told them, ‘It is impossible for God to speak with humans.’ Marzieh asked him in return, ‘Are you questioning whether God is Almighty?’ Mr. Haddad then replied, ‘you are not worthy for God to speak to you.’ Marzieh said, ‘It is God, and not you, who determines if I am worthy.’

Mr. Haddad told the women to return to prison and think about the options they were given and come back to him when they are ready (to comply). Maryam and Marzieh said, ‘We have already done our thinking.’
At the end of the session, Mr. Haddad told them that a judge will give them his verdict, though it is not clear who will be the judge in their case now. He also allowed Maryam and Marzieh to have a lawyer represent them in the case for the first time since their arrest.

Both women are back in Evin prison tonight. During their five-month ordeal, both have been unwell and have lost much weight. Marzieh is in pain due to an on-going problem with her spine, as well as an infected tooth and intense headaches. She desperately needs medical attention. Two months ago the prison officials told her the prison had proper medical equipment and that they will attend to her, but so far no proper treatment has been given.

Despite the concentrated effort of officials to pressure them into recanting their faith, Maryam and Marzieh love Jesus and they are determined to stand firm to the very end no matter whatever happens. They have demonstrated their love for Jesus and would offer their lives for Him if they were called to do so. After today’s court session they said, ‘If we come out of prison we want to do so with honor.’

Maryam and Marzieh’s case is a clear and harsh violation of human rights and religious liberty by Iran’s authorities. They deserve the support of all those who respect human rights and to be released without charges so they can pursue a life of freedom.”

Please keep these two precious saints, and all the saints living in Iran and the rest of the Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, and Communist nations in our daily prayers. Keep reminding your local church to pray for our persecuted brethren. We are one Body, the Body of Christ. If one member of the body suffers, the entire body suffers. Let us not “dwell at ease in Zion,” or “reign as kings,” while we have this brief privilege of living in a prosperous and free nation. Amos 6:1 and 1 Corinthians 4:8

Gratefully your servants in Jesus Christ,
