It has been brought to my attention that a friend of mine who lives in Mississippi is very ill. She was diagnosed with colon cancer last year, but it has been in remission for many months. I got to see Sue when we visited our home church on "Homecoming" and really thought she was doing well. However since two weeks ago, there have been several tests that show the cancer is now in her lumbar spine.
Naturally our question is "How long do I have"? to which the Doctor's reply has been "the best we can calculate about 18 months."
Her pain is excruciating and even in the face of her pain, she holds on to faith in what God is capable of doing in dire circumstances.
Sue's husband has Parkinson's and therefore of little help to her. You may pray how you feel led to pray, however my prayer will be like this.
"Oh God who sees everything. Oh Lord who feels our pain. Oh Jesus who suffered stripes for our healing - bring a miracle to my friend Sue. There is nothing too hard for thee and I believe the day of Miracles is not over. Your Word tells us "without Faith, it is impossible to please God," and Lord I know Sue's faith has been a testimony of your power at work in her life.
Please Lord, reward her faith with a miracle. I believe you can. However I pray your will be done in all things.
In Jesus name AMEN
Yours for intercession,
