A few days ago I posted about my friend’s daughter, Lauren, who would be having surgery to remove a benign, but troublesome, tumor from her head, as it is pressing on her brain. Today is that day. Lauren’s friend had set up a prayer chain so that she would be completely covered in prayer throughout the day. I had the honor earlier this morning, although my prayers will continue throughout the day. I have personally experienced the AWEsome power of prayer in my own life and difficult times and can attest to the fact that HE is a force to be reckoned with as Our Lord is inundated with intercessory prayers. It is never too little or too late. He is always there. Ready. Waiting for us to seek Him.
I have no doubt Lauren, her husband, Chris, my dear friend and her husband and their two other daughters in community with all their friends and family will witness the amazing graces of God in response to the prayers of so many on behalf of one. He can use ANYthing to His glory, even an ugly tumor in a tricky spot.
How “coincidental” that today’s Daily Readings are all about healing and the grace of God, the intercession of Christ and Faith in the One who has authored this story, who is the Healer, the Great Physician.
Psalm 46:8 The Lord of hosts is with us; our stronghold is the God of Jacob.
In your spare time today, won’t you lift up Lauren and her family? Thanks, and may God Bless you.
