Prayer Request
Militiaman7 | 8-10-2004 | Militiaman7

Posted on 08/10/2004 5:23:10 PM PDT by Militiaman7

I'm a strong believer in Prayer. Over the years I've asked for prayers for a couple of my Grandchildren. Isaiah and Breanna. Both are fine now thanks mostly to the prayers of Family, Friends and Freepers. Thank you all again.

This week I was informed that I have Cancer of the Esophagus. I won't go into the details except to say I have a good team of Doctors working with me. The Coach of my team is the Great Physician and I trust him completely.

They are hoping for complete remission after treatment of chemotherapy and radiation. Surgery may be an option later on, but it isn't now.

I am literally half the man I was a year ago, I have lost between 70 and 80 pounds, but some of that can be attributed to being diagnosed late last year with diabetes.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks for the strength of prayer that surrounds Militiaman7 as he begins his journey to complete restoration of health. Thank You that You will be with him in his waking moments ... You will be watching over him during the night ... You will speak to him of peace when anxiety appears ... there will never be a moment when You are not with him, such is Your love. May Your healing hand rest mightily upon him, and upon all those whom You are shepherding through similar trials. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Dear Militiaman7, You got the right attitude. You'll whip it all right. You'll have my fervent prayers to God backing you up, and remember to offer to God everything you go through. The Lord can make something for his glory out of everything we offer up to him in prayer. Again, you will have may prayers for your complete healing and for the Lord to strengthen and help you every step of the way. God bless and keep you.

Matthew 18
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.


By your word Lord, we claim healing for Militiaman7, in Jesus' name.

Heavenly Father, we bring our Brother, Militiaman7, to You for healing. Make him strong to win this fight, Father. Supercharge his immune system to fight off these abberant cells, and weaken the cancer so that medical treatments will be more effective.

Instruct our Brother in the foods he should eat to aid his body in this effort. Calm and soothe his heart, and give him Your assurances daily that You are with him and love him. Care for all the other burdens he is carrying, so that he can devote all his time and energy to destroying this illness. Thank You, Father! Amen!

P.S. I was given less than a year to live in 1998 -- lung cancer. Thanks to God, good doctors and a special diet, I survived. Anyone who wants details, just FReepmail me.

Father, your children come together as one, united by the blood of your son, Jesus Christ. We lift up our brother to You in praise and faith. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. We bless you Lord for You are the God that heals. I loose the healing hand of Jesus. I take authority over cancer and destruction and bind you in the name of Jesus. You have no authority here. Fill your child with Your grace and peace. We will stand and wait for Your deliverance.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, now and forever.
Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed art Thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen

Glory Be to the Father

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning
is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

To: All
There are no words that can express my gratitute and thanks.

A small update. Today is the first day in awhile that I haven't had to go to one Doctor or another so I've been catching up on some rest.

My radiologist mentioned that after a second review of my CAT CSan that the lympth nodes embedded in my chest near the site of the cancer do not appear to be as swollen as previously though and may not be impacted by the cancer at all. This is truly an answer to prayer. Also on Friday I will have a feeding tube inserted in my intestines to supplement my feeding (now to figure out how to cram a banana split down the tube, :~) )and to boost my nourishment. I will be in the hospital overnight for the surgery.

I am reminded over and over again of the love of God expressed through the messages of this thread. I am truly blessed.

May the Lord continue to bless each of you for your kindness.

David (MM7)

Dear friend,
I pray for your health. And, even more importantly, I pray that you have asked Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior; knowing that He is God's Son, and that He died to pay for your sins - and that He then rose from the dead. Then - no matter how long you are here - your eternity in Heaven will be secure.
