Freeper Prayers are Needed for a Good Friend....
12.18.02 | mlmr

Posted on 12/18/2002 5:23:52 PM PST by mlmr

A great and good friend who lives half way across the country from me is very ill. He has been a good friend for many years and now his beloved wife stands by his bedside and is watching him slip away. He has been on chemo for bowel cancer that had one small liver metastiasis. The chemo has apparently induced seizures and clots and he is now in a drug induced coma to help stop the seizing. It has not stopped and even severely comatose he has seizure activity.

The doctors are stumped and Paul is now in the hands of God...

It is hard even to type this...

Father God, we ask that You please take this man in your loving arms...that You touch him and bring the miraculous, instantaneous healing that is so simple for You to do. Heal this man of his serious illness to show yourself mighty on his behalf, Father. We give great thanks for allowing this man to be used for your glory. Restore him to health, and allow him to celebrate the birth of your holy son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior, with his family in the comfort of his own home.

These things we ask in Jesus' holy name..............amen.

Praying for you.

How about a prayer for my dog. Yesterday she jumped from the bed and has been limping ever since. Today the vet diagnosed a torn ligament in her leg. She may have to have surgery. We'll see if the ligament heals by itself.

Prayers for this gentleman and his family and friends. (I have walked a similar road.) Click on my name to read a part of my story.

God, please grant this man and his family to strength to deal with his sickness at this time. We entrust his well-being to your loving compassion.

Amen

Prayers are going up for Paul and Sue. I've never heard of that kind of severe reaction to chemo, but I guess it happens. Shouldn't they have some kind of antidote in that situation?

Please, Lord, make him stop seizing so he can awaken tomorrow to praise your Name.

I join with those here in praying for your friend Paul. May God touch him with His healing hand, and may God direct his doctors to find the cause of the seizures.

Matthew 7
7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Lord, we ask that you give remedy to Paul and comfort to mlmr according to their needs, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

May God hold you and your friend and his family close to Him as they endure this trial. I ask God to heal your friend, if it is His will, in Jesus' name.
