Dear prayer warriors, I am asking you to come together and reach out to anyone in your prayer circle to pray for Laura. I worked with her for many years, and our mutual friend Doris, who also worked with Laura and became very close to her, has told me that she has cancer and it has spread. Laura always has a smile on her face and just exudes joy and happiness. You can’t help but smile when you are around her.
Please pray that God gives Laura peace, and His strength, and the will to fight this horrible disease. She has overcome this before, but now that it has returned it has weakened her physically, emotionally and spirtually. We know that God has His plan for each of us, and we know that He is the ultimate Healer. Laura believes in prayer and has asked us to pray for her.
Abba Father, Master and Creator of the Universe, Jehovah Rapha, we come before you and kneel at Your feet, and ask that You look upon Your daughter Laura, and heal her of this cancer. Place Your hands upon her and strengthen her. Give her Your peace which surpasses all understanding. Send Your angels to stand guard over her. Give Your wisdom to the doctors and nurses so they care for her. Send the comforter to her and give her rest and peace. Place people around her that will pray for her. May Your joy be with her and may she look to You Father for guidance, and strength.
The blood of Jesus blood flows through each of us bringing healing and life. We pray the blood of Jesus over Laura and ask You Father, to bless her, and that Your will be done in the name of Your precious Son who died so that we may have life everlasting, amen.
Dear prayer partners, it has been long overdue that I update you on how my husband is doing. I thank each of you for your prayers and pray that God blesses you for your faithfulness. It has been 10 1/2 months since my husband was discharged from the hospital. This is HUGE because it is the longest he has gone without having to be hospitalized in over 3 years. He was averaging a trip to the hospital every 3 months, and his stays were anywhere from a week to almost a month.
His Crohn’s is in remission, PRAISE God! His legs are healing, PRAISE God! He is weaning off the Prednisone and pain meds, PRAISE God! These are HUGE victories!! He has had a setback, his is having problems with a compressed nerve root in his L5, but is scheduled for a procedure tomorrow. Due to this recent setback he has not been very mobile resulting in a large weight gain, which has also created some breathing problems and fluid retention. I am NOT discouraged with this because I know that God is in control. He is in the midst of all of this. That is not to say that it’s all sunshine and lollipops, I would be lying if I said we are struggling with this but then we stop, breathe, pray, and realize that God has brought him so far and He is not done yet.
I ask that you continue to pray for Jose. That one day very soon he is able to wake up without bandages on his legs, able to take a deep cleansing breath, able to walk without struggling, has been able to come off a lot of the meds he is on, and that he can be more involved with our beautiful grandbabies.
Again, thank you, bless you, and may God richly reward your faithfulness.
Dear prayer partners, I have been asked to share a prayer request for Richelle. She needs to have surgery on her pancreas. We know that God is in control, we know that He is Jehovah Raphe our Healer. May God place His healing hands upon Richelle. May He give His wisdom to the doctors and caregivers. May He place His angels about Richelle and may He send the Comforter to give her peace. I pray for the family and friends of Richelle that God covers them in His peace and wraps His arms around them giving them His strength. In all things may His will be done as His will is perfect. He knows the plans He has for us. May He give us grace and mercy and may we open our ears and hearts to hear Him and to know Him. I ask these things in the name of His precious Son, Jesus Christ, amen.
