Dear Friends, I am coming to you with an urgent prayer request. Would you pray for my friend who is very sick with cancer, and recently it has become much more aggressive. She is in intensive care and they are not offering much hope.
She is a very special friend I’ve known all my life. Her folks went through so much to have her. She was literally born in blood, sweat and tears. She’s always been there for me and my family and has a big heart and does so much to help so many people. She reaches out to her neighbors, welcomes people into her home, and shares everything she has, even though she has been persecuted for her faith. The world needs more like her. My heart is breaking. My urgent prayer request is for her healing and that God will continue to use her. I know and believe He is “able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” when we pray (Ephesians 3:20).
But she’s very sick and prayer is her only hope now. I would love it if people everywhere were praying for her. Would you pray for her? Her name is…America.
Friends, would you join me in a commitment to pray each day for the United States of America, along with confession and fasting? Truly America is very sick and has spiritual cancer, and it has infected every part of her being. But the Great Physician is “able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond all we ask or think” if we keep praying. There is hope, if we will use the prescription He gave us:
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
He also said, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12). The principles our country was founded on are why God blessed our nation. We must return to what gave us good health in the first place.
‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Return to Me,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 1:3
Thank you so much for joining me in prayer. God bless you, and God bless America!
