Mrs Cheryl over at Homespun Devotions has posted many prayer requests for
She just added a new prayer request for Lauren Hill.
I am asking Christian readers to please join in a day of prayer and fasting on October 22, 2014 for these precious people.
If you miss this week,
please join in fasting and prayer on October 29th.
Many times in the Bible we read how people and even whole nations were called to fast. Jesus didn't say "if" you fast but rather "when" you fast in Matthew 6:16. He also said...Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting Matthew 17:21.
We are not suppose to act like hypocrites with a sad countenance and appear unto men to be fasting or go around telling others that we are fasting, BUT it is okay to call together a fast and agree to fast together for a need. There is power within the realm of spiritual warfare when we fast! Also, praise is a weapon too. I wrote a post about how Jehoshaphat sent the worshipers out before the army. The Bible says that when they BEGAN singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the enemy. Needless to say, the enemy was defeated!
Lets send our praises and prayers to the Lord. He is mighty and able to set ambushes up against sickness, paralysis, and even cancer. Our God is a mountain mover! I hope many will decide to fast and pray for these precious people.
Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Isaiah 58:6
Max(2) and Makeya(6) are SURVIVORS of terrible car wreck that happened August 2, 2014. The accident took the life of their brother, Quinton(5). Max and Makeya have been through so much during the past few months. Cheryl has several updates on her blog.
Connie was hospitalized on September 15, 2014 with pancreatitis and triglycerides >7890. She was sedated and on a ventilator for over 30 days. She is dealing with withdraw symptoms from the medication that kept her asleep for over a month. She is fighting a couple of infections. She will need physical therapy. She will also need speech therapy until the ventilator is removed from her trachea. She came near to death and still has obstacles ahead, but thank God she's come this far!
Oct. 1, 2014 was Lauren's 19th birthday.
49 days after her 18th birthday, an MRI revealed a brain tumor. The actual diagnosis is DIPG: Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. This is not a mass, but a cancer with roots at the base of her brain stem that has growing tentacles weaving through her nerves. Her condition is inoperable.
The best hope doctors could offer was maybe two years to live.
