This evening I was trying to catch up on nearly 100 blog posts. About half-way through I received an email through my work address.
From a dear, sweet, first-grade, teacher friend. Inviting me to join her "MyLifeLine.org" page.
What? Wait? What??? Last week she was diagnosed with cancer.
A friend of hers wrote about how we can pray for her and her family. I found it very encouraging and helpful. You could read it here.
I immediately went searching for a prayer that I could pray for her. I found this one and personalized it for her.
Think, O God, of our friend, Danielle, who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard. Comfort her upon her journey, and ease her suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord. We therefore pray that you bless our friend, Danielle, with Your loving care, renew her strength, and heal what ails her in Your loving name. Thank you, Lord.
Thank you for your prayers.
