URGENT PRAYER NEEDED!!!!!!

"In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and He heard me."
Psalm 120:1
(KJV)

Dear friends, I come to you today with an URGENT plea for prayer.
My brother-in-law, LD, is in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital.
He was just diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer,
he is in kidney failure, and he is now on a ventilator.


This has all happened very suddenly, and my dear sister, Debbie, and nephew, Mark,
are in such shock and distress.

LD has prayed for many others,
including myself, my precious Mom, Kevin, Zach, and so many in our family, and now, he is the one who is standing in the need of earnest prayer.

James 5:16 says,
"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Regardless of what the doctors are saying, we all know the power of the Great Physician,
and He is the one we call upon today, out of our broken hearts.

"And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: 
for with God all things are possible."
Mark 10:27

"But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, 
Do not fear, only believe.”
Mark 5:36

Please agree in prayer with us for a miracle!!
My family and I appreciate it SO very much!

God bless each one of you dear readers, and may He help you through any troubles you now face.

  5. Dear Cheryl,
    Oh I am so sorry for yet another load added onto your burdens, dear friend! But I am so thankful that God had me praying last night for you.

    1. Oh, dear friend! You put it into words..pressed on all sides, indeed. I honestly feel that way. I feel like I have hit a new low over the past few weeks. Totally bombarded, but surely God is by our side, and we have to trust that and believe that. You are such a precious support and friend to me, and I thank God for you so much.

  21. I'm continuing in prayer for LD, Cheryl, and for all your family's needs, oh my, at times it can seem that things are overwhelming, but I pray that the Lord girds you up with His strength, and gives grace and peace to comfort you in the midst of all these needs. I pray for LD that the Lord would undertake in a mighty way and bring healing and comfort to his body, in Jesus name. With love and hugs to you dear friend!
