I don’t usually ask for prayers on my blog. I am very public with my faith to those I know, but not so public to those with whom I may share a differing opinion. After living in Utah for 7 years, a Lutheran in a near-foreign religious land, it’s difficult to stop and remember that there is just one God, and most of us who claim we are Christians honor Him. Perhaps in differing ways or with differing viewpoints of organized (or not) religion, but we all have the same basic right to freedom of religion.
But today, I ask you for prayers.
In this post http://quilttherapy.com/?p=350 I spoke of a dear friend who had a benign tumor removed from her tongue, and I made her the crazy quilted heart, blessed and prayed over by our whole family. I later found out that she held it tight as she went through her surgery, feeling a sense of comfort from the love that we sent with it.
We received an email this morning, that she’s had another tumor removed from under her tongue, but this time the pathology showed it was malignant.
Are there enough prayers out there? Can we all take just a moment to send up a prayer for Ms. P. — for healing and strength, and for her family as they go through this trying time?
God answers prayers. No doubt in my mind. So, please, in the privacy of your home or in the public way via comment – pray for our dear friend. She is one special lady. I ask of this in Jesus’ name. Amen
