For the last two Sundays we posted the names of those in this blog community who are fighting for life.  I’ll post the names one more time here, but if we’re to do it any more, I’ll only post the names of those for whom we’ve received updates. For our prayers to be vital, they need to be based on current information.
 
Please feel free to add a friend or family member to the list.  Let us know where they
are from and what their illness is.  In praying to
our God for healing in Jesus’ name, we today are the body of Christ
doing what only it can do.

  • Thank you for praying for Fa. She is a dear friend -43years old- diagnosed this summer with bilateral breast cancer- (stage 3). We’ve done the mastectomy and now midway thru chemo to be followed with radiation. Last week I shaved her head for her. We cried, laughed and prayed thru it all. Last night Fa was the worship leader for our Saturday night service where the topic was ‘Rejoice in All Things’- Phl 1:18-21. Fa, with her shiny bald head stood in front offering prayers and words of praise to God for allowing us to know Him in the thick and the thin. I don’t even know what she sang- she just shimmered in God’s light with beautiful sounds swirling around her. What a witness. What an amazing moment of standing in His presence.

    God is so good.

  • Please add Clarke Doyle to the list – he has been fighting cancer that has moved to his lungs for the past 2 years – and is continuing the fight! thanks

  • These prayer requests are so difficult. I’m so sad for the people that are struggling with the illness and for their loved ones. One thing I can say for me is that after losing my mother to heart disease is I wish she had written me a letter for after she was gone to be with the Lord. Even though I know she loved me so much it would have been nice to get a letter of encouragement in the Lord restating her love for me and reminding me to be strong in the Lord and that she would be there to greet me when I take my leave of this earth. When she died 3 plus years ago, I felt and still feel like if I want to be close to my mother then I need to worship the Lord in spirit and truth because then I worship with the hosts of heaven and yes, my mother.
    I do pray that God would heal these people and spare their families sorrow, but if He choose not to heal then I pray for His comfort.

  • Update to Bob (inoperable brain tumour, given only weeks to live)

    He is still alive, sight diminished a lot now and co-ordination failing. His prognosis is still poor. In good spirits still though. Please continue to pray.

    Also Mark (44, inoperable bowel cancer, 2nd time around)

    Mark is now on another bout of chemo, which will last until just before Christmas. Some of his secondary tumours in the lungs showed signs of shrinkage on a recent scan. He is having pain in his leg from a tumour in his bone currently. He is in good spirits but dreading the scan at Christmas after this chemo set which will show if there is any hope or not. The Drs said a recovery would be “remarkable” at this point. We are hoping for the remarkable.

    Thanks for standing with my friends in this. Bless you, dear ones.

  • Please may I add another name?

    A boy, 7 years old, who was born at 25 weeks and we met in hospital when my son was born at 29 weeks back in 2001. Always been close. They are not yet Christians.

    His name is Jamie and he has been just diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Prognosis debatable at this stage. Prayers welcome for the wee boy.

    Thanks. Cxxx

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
