Prayer request Oct. 15, 2010

Hello Fellow Intercessors,

Today I received the following prayer request.  This being breast cancer awareness month, makes this request very timely.  While many people are walking in "Race for the Cure" tomorrow morning here in LR., it would be a great opportunity to pray for this need.

How scared she must be - being a single mom who is trying to juggle her responsibilities, we never seem to make time for ourselves and for sure the scare of breast cancer can be very unsettling. 

"OH Lord of Love, our Great God of compassion, It is YOU oh Lord who lifts us up, restores relationships, heals bodies and even raises the Dead.  It is YOU oh Lord, to whom we turn when our situations are overwhelming, and troubles intrude on our lives that are too big for us the mortals we are.
I praise you for all the prayers you have answered for me, I praise you for your intervention in my life when I was face with surmountable mountains too big for me to climb, the times when you came and walked beside me, encouraging me to keep moving.  It is You I need today for our friend Schelly who needs peace.  Your Peace that passes our understanding.  Your Peace Oh Lord to clothe her as in a warm blanket.  Surround her with people who care, and people who will encourage her to KEEP trusting YOU.  It is YOU who Heals, it is YOU who guides the surgeons hands.  It is YOU Oh Lord, that can make this knot, or lump to be benign - only a cyst. 
Lord I thank you that you have heard this prayer from my heart.  I bring Schelly to You, for You are the Healer.  Thank you Lord for answering our prayer.  I trust you.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Schelly's Request in her words.
On Tuesday I found a very large, hard lump in my chest. I had a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound today.

It is a fast-growing and irregular shaped solid mass and they will be sending me for a biopsy at a breast surgeon. Probably not until next week.

It is all happening so fast and I am trying to keep it together.

For those of you who don't know, I am a single work-at-home mom who home schools her two boys. Life is already a struggle juggling homeschooling, running a household and working.

I am having a hard time with this, and the waiting is a killer.
I greatly appreciate your prayers.
