Journal: My bone cancer (Sacral Chordoma) ^ | 4 January 2010 | Dolly Howard

Posted on 01/04/2010 2:45:21 AM PST by DollyCali

Our Freeper Friend Jeff Head was diagnosed
with a serious (they all are to me) form of cancer
just before Christmas



Please help me approach the prayer throne for our friend Jeff Head who is in Houston currently from his home in Idaho to have surgery & treatment at MD Anderson for his cancer. He will be able to respond on occasion.

You can follow his story & the particulars of the cancer at his blog/HERE

You might know him for many reasons.. His great mind & posts on this forum .. at which he was Freeper of the year in 2001. He is an Activist, Author, Man of God, Devoted Family Man(father of 6; grandfather of 5) and friend to many.

You can find him on line at places other than here.. at Facebook he is Jeff Head

Jeff's Web Page - (check out the neat stickers he sells)

Jeff's FR Profile

Jeff's blog on his Cancer

Father we pray for our friend Jeff. May he find your perfect peace as he continues to trust you with his life. Give the surgeons and medical personnel wisdom and perfect skill in treating him. Please keep him close to your heart as his body responds to treatments and to surgery. Help us to love him as our brother and give support and strength to wife Gail and their large and loving family. In the name of our Savior and Creator. Amen.

Dolly, I can’t access his FaceBook page because I’m not a member there (nor will I be). Would appreciate updates here. Jeff Head is a FR treasure, you can be sure I’ll add him to my daily prayer list.

Oh my. Jeff, you’re in the hearts and prayers of many...may God bless you with determination and persistence at this time and give you complete healing.

When my son was fighting his cancer he said those two abilities combined with a LOT of laughing are what got him through it.

Prayers are ongoing for you, FRiend.

Heavenly Father, we come to you with praise in our hearts for your faithfulness and lovingkindness to us. Father, we lift up today our brother Jeff and ask that you watch over him and the medical staff as they treat him.

Lord, Please help and strengthen Jeff and his family particularly Gail as they face this trial. Grant them your comfort and bring healing to Jeff and we will give you the praise.

In Christ’s name, Amen.

Jeff Head, One of our most erudite and outspoken FReeper FRiends, is in need of prayer.

Dear Gracious Father, We lift up our brother Jeff Head to You this morning. We understand he will be undergoing cancer surgery. We know it is You who gives wisdom to the surgeons. We pray that You will guide their gifted hands. We also pray that You, Who created every cell, every molecule, and every atom in the human body, will seek out and destroy every shred of cancer in Jeff Head's body. Let there be no evil shred of the disease left to attempt a relapse..May the Sun of Righteousness hover over Jeff Head with Healing in His Wings, and bring Jeff head to us hale and hearty, like this cool picture of him!

This we pray in the Holy Name of Jesus

AMEN

Dear Father, please protect our beloved Jeff. He is so needed here, especially now. He is a valiant warrior with a strong head and heart. If You can spare him for awhile, we sure would appreciate it.

Please guide the hand of his surgeon and give them the knowledge and intuition to get all the plague of cancer from his body. We ask this humbly as Your children

Bringing our Brother Jeff under the protection of Psalm 91 and in the prayer for healing ... may the Lord be glorified in every way. Thank you, Lord, for Jeff’s ministry to us ... restore him, we pray, that he might return to lead the charge another day, such is the need of our beloved nation. Amen ...

HEALING CONFESSION

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Living Word. You said that Your Word is Life to those who find it and medicine to all their flesh. Today, by my confession, I apply Your Word to our body by giving voice to it. You said in Psalm 139:14 that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that Your works are marvelous. I declare that You made us and we are a marvelous creation.

I speak to sickness and disease today and proclaim that according to Philippians 2:10 that they must bow down to the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Every name in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth bows its knee to Jesus’ name.

I speak to our body today and declare that we have authority over it. I command it to receive the Word of God. Matthew 8:17 proclaims that Jesus bore our sickness and took our infirmities. Heavenly Father, I thank You that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us and makes alive our mortal body.

I speak to our immune system and command it to line up with the Word of God. Our immune system will destroy sickness and disease in our body and perform its job, for this is what You created it to do. I thank You, Father, that every cell in our body responds to Your Word. Your Word permeates our body from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet. I confess that the Word of God is being made flesh in us. Psalm 103:3 declares that You, Father, forgave all our iniquities and healed all our diseases. Father, that is Your confession and I make it our confession also. We don’t judge by the sight of our eyes; we judge by Your Living Word. It is Your Word that lives in us and brings health and healing to every part of our body.

Heavenly Father, we rejoice at Your promise of divine health. You said it and we believe it. Today I declare that we will see Your Promise of healing manifest in our body. Healing is ours because Jesus paid the price two thousand years ago. God so loved us that He sent His Son to die on the cross so that we could experience life on God’s terms. His abundant life is manifesting in us. Make us whole ~ body, soul, and spirit. Amen …

Thank you, DollyCali. I am requesting all Catholics who believe in St. Padre Pio to offer up a Novena for Jeffs total and complete healing. It can be found on the internet.

PRAYER to obtain the glorification of PADRE PIO

O Jesus, full of grace and charity, victim for sinners, so impelled by love for us that you willed to die on the cross, I humbly beseech You to glorify in heaven and on earth the Servant of God, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, who generously participated in Your sufferings, who loved You so much and laboured so faithfully for the glory of Your heavenly Father and for the good of souls.

With confidence I beseech You to grant me, through his intercession, the grace of Jeff Head, which I ardently desire.

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.

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.

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.

This is such sad news. Will pray that God heals this good man. May God also bless his family with the strength to help him recover.
