Prayer For A Friend
I have a dear friend who is fighting cancer.
Due to some complications with chemo, she is on a ventilator.
I chose to take a shift on a 24 hour prayer chain for her.
I just came off my 30 minute shift which easily expanded to 45.
There is no distance, time, or space where the Holy Spirit is concerned.
So following the lead of the Godly woman who formed this chain, I read, sang and prayed for my friend through His power.
Many tears were shed as God touched my heart again and again.
Last night as I went to sleep with her beautiful name upon my lips in prayer, I tried to think what it must be like--lying there--cognizant, yet sedated somewhat, knowing I was on a ventilator.
I prayed for her to have a peace beyond comprehension.
And as I drifted off to sleep while still in prayer, I feel that God not only answered my prayer for her but touched me also.
I awoke this morning feeling better than I have felt in two months.
I do believe my God is working a miracle in her and in me.
Tonight as I was praying for her this is the verse that I seemed to come back to--Jeremiah 17:14.
I pray that this verse will minister to you tonight wherever you are and whatever need you have.
Love and prayers,
