Prayer

A dear lady in my church as cancer. She is amazing and often testified to God's goodness even as her health got worse and worse. The Dr. says she is going to die soon. I just got back from visiting and my eyes want to believe the Dr. She is yellow because her kidneys have begun failing and she is also holding so much fluid that she is about 80 lbs heavier than just a few weeks ago. She is on oxygen and hospice has taken over her home care.

Everything says she will not be with us long but my heart says God will heal her. I want to see her teaching my kids on Sunday morning again. I want to see her give a testimony of the healing power of God. I want to see people come to know God because of that powerful testimony.

Please pray for her. More specifically pray for her complete healing. Nature is set for her to pass soon so we don't need God to do much in helping her there. She will be with Him regardless of your prayer in this. We need God to do the supernatural. We need Him to move if any other outcome will happen.

I prayed with her today and honestly she was less yellow after the prayer. It is a small thing but if we get more and more people praying then those small things will add up to total healing.

Please pray and pass it along.

I said a prayer for her right after reading this. I will continue throughout the day.

Heading out for a walk around the lake and will be praying for your friend. I have seen miraculous things, and in the end, we all know about His perfect healing. Peace to you, Nick.

My heart goes out to you, your friend, and your friend's family. I pray that God provides the strength and peace as you all deal with this.

Ditto to what Sherri said. And please know Nick, that I think you are doing a super job as a pastor. You probably don't hear that enough.

Nick, I've seen God heal people that doctors said had no hope, so I stand with you in the belief that God is still in the business of miraculous healing. I'm praying God's will for your friend. And I'm praying if He chooses to heal her in Heaven rather than here, that everyone who loves her will have peace that surpasses all understanding.

Thanks everyone for the prayers. I haven't been out to see her since Monday. Tomorrow afternoon is open so I'm planning on getting out to see her again. I heard that her daughter called pastor crying today and they made a trip out before service, but I was busy at the time and couldn't make it.
