I have a friend whose mom developed cancer unknowingly. She (the mom) began suddenly feeling pain, and went in to the doctor. They said she had four months left if she didn’t do chemo. God healed her miraculously, causing my friend, who was very bitter against God, to turn to Him and love him. Also, my dad was unemployed for almost 2 years. My dad prayed for God to give him a specific sign if we were to stay in our house. God specified our sign even more than we had expected, and we are still in our house, AND my dad has a job. God is VERY good!
In High school my best friend was hit by a car. She had severe brain damage and her parents were told she would never walk or talk and her mind would be that of a 3 year old. I was in math class taking a test and God told me to pray. I stopped the test and prayed. When I got home I called the hospital and her dad put her on the phone and she said hi. I asked her dad when that happened and it was the exact time God told me to pray for her. I was so excited I cried. She later was in a special class but did finish high school.
In November of 2003, I was rescued and put in jail for several charges. Most of them were drug related. I was addicted to the drug Meth. While I was in jail, I felt alone, scared and unforgivable for all the nasty things I had done. I was approached by a prison Chaplain one afternoon while I was sitting all alone and I started explaining to her why I was there. She told me that “it does not matter what you have done in the past” and that “Jesus Christ loves you and forgives you”. I said the sinners prayer that day, on December 3rd, 2003. He is the love of my life now. I pray that they never take those people (Prison Chaplains) out of the jail, because it saved my life.
Almost 6 years ago, I found out I was going to be having a baby boy that was going to be born with a lot of problems. At that time, I didn’t have a relationship with God. I didn’t not believe, I just didn’t follow Him. Luckily I had a sister that was very involved in her church and she had a growing relationship with God. She immediately put my family on the prayer chain. Soon, our entire small town knew about it and was praying for him. When my son was born, he was diagnosed with a chromosomal abnormality that is very very rare. They gave him 15 months to live. We were heartbroken. But this June, we will be celebrating his 6th birthday!!! He is an amazing little boy and I thank God everyday for blessing me with him.
My cousin, Jason, has recently been diagnosed with a mouth cancer and could potentially lose his tongue. He refuses to seek medical help. A few days ago he was sent to the hospital.
I don’t know much about it but I know that he was forced to go. His father died from this kind of cancer and he thinks he just has no chance, so if there is no chance, why go to seek medical help?
The truth is, he needs the help. He is old enough to make his own decisions, that’s for sure. But he should be smart enough to make the right decision.
This hasn’t been solved yet. But i hope with all of your prayers, he will realize that with God, he can make it through anything. Thanks :)
I applied to Pharmacy school, but as I was in the application process I decided to change my career path. Our pharmacy school aceepts 85 students and has a short waitlist. Last year only two people off the waitlist made it into the program. I had a friend that was #3 on the waitlist. All of our friends rallied around her to pray her into school if it was God’s will. Two more people, besides me had to give up their spots in order for her to get in. Today she got the call that she is in the program and all the praise goes to God!
I am a special education teacher. One of my students is Blair- a 19 year old delight who has Downs Syndrome.
He has been in the hospital fighting for his life for 4 weeks today. Blair is our muscle man. He loves to roll up his sleeves and show his “guns.”
I started a Facebook group for him called “Rollin up a Sleeve for Blair” and people from all over the world are praying Blair through. I heard your song (“Pray You Through” by Sixteen Cities) for the first time today and posted it on his Facebook page and several have already been blessed by it. Blair’s father who has stayed by his bedside tirelessly, was especially moved by the lyrics “I’m all out of words.”
We pray that this little man’s tragedy will be an instrument of God’s glory! Please! Stop by the group and post! roll up a sleeve, and help us PRAY BLAIR THROUGH!
