Just me and God

My story, my prayer

Unless you know me personally, it’s likely you don’t know my story.  Then, even if you do know me personally, it’s likely you don’t know my prayer.  Today I will tell you both.

I was raised in a religious home.  I have a wonderful mother and a wonderful sister.  God also uniquely blessed me with step and half siblings.  I also have three fathers.  My father who gave me life, who I love beyond words.  My dad who helped raise me for most of my childhood and adolescence, who I’ve always called Dad, then my stepdad now who is amazing.

About two weeks ago I was at MD Anderson for diagnostic testing on a lump that I found.  Praise God, everything turned out ok for me.  On that same day, my dad got confirmation from a biopsy that he has cancer.  It was the best and worst day of my life.  While praising God that I was healthy, later that day I was heartbroken that my dad was not.  Something inside of me shifted.  I don’t know how to explain it except that in my spirit I felt an urgency and burden to pray.  For a while, I prayed silently.  I prayed hard.  I felt heartbroken that over the years we didn’t connect as often as we could.  It put into perspective very quickly how short life is, even though, it’s something I’m already quite aware of.  His journey is just beginning.  Our journey is beginning again.  We have reconnected on a more “real” level if that makes sense.  I leave nothing unsaid and I overuse I love you.  I pray from the moment I wake up until the moment my head hits the pillow.

Thank you God for opening my eyes.  Thank you God for giving me a true love for every person.  Thank you for mending relationships in my life.  My prayer God is that you will bless my family.  Bless my family with health.  Give my dad a mighty miracle.  Bless him financially as he goes through this journey!  Surround him with love and peace.  Send a host of angels to comfort him and the family in this time.  I am claiming by faith that he will receive a miracle!

He will be starting chemo soon and we are praying that the tumors respond.  My prayer is for a complete healing in his body10430867_10201368801022529_2717217398199384505_n

Will you pray with me?

Matthew 18:19  Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on Earth, as touching any thing they shall ask , it shall be done for them of my Father which is in Heaven.

  1. Lord, I come to you in name of Jesus to touch this man and heal his body. Lord bless him financially and give him peace of mind, give him favor and give him comfort and assurance in knowing your word is true. Lord I ask you to wrap your arms around this entire family and give them assurance and comfort as well. They are your children Lord and love you very much. Bless each and every one of them right now. I ask this in your precious holy name Lord! AMEN

  2. This was beautifully written. I believe in prayer and truly have witnessed prayer work, even on myself. I came close to death in 2003 and with family and friends praying over me, I was healed of my all my sickness. Prayer is so powerful. Our God is AWESOME. I will be sending prayers for you and your family daily, Dawn.
