Please Pray...

Dear Friends,

Your prayers are needed. I know most of you don't know my friend Charity, but her brother was recently diagnosed with lung cancer (he never smoked a single day of his life) and today he found out that the cancer has spread to his brain. This precious family believes in Christ and the power of prayer, and they are vigilently praying that God might choose to heal her brother Dave, or at least prolong his life. The doctors say the outlook is grim, but we know our God is the Great Physician and that there is power in prayer.

Would you please stop what you're doing now and pray for him? Pray for this family, for his wife and two children, for their parents (I can't imagine how difficult it must be as a mom to watch her son going through this), and for the siblings and relatives as they deal with the reality of this news. Perhaps you might also go to her blog (linked here...scroll down and look for the above picture to read more) and leave her a note of encouragment as well. I know that would brighten her day. Thank you, prayer warriors!

I urge then...that requests, prayers, intercession,
and thanksgiving be made for everyone. ~1 Timothy 2:1

Praying for God to bring a full healing to Charity's brother! I pray that her entire family will be strengthened in this and that God would be glorified in an amazing way by this event!

Happy New Year friend!

Praying for him!

Perhaps tell him about Dr. Shultz's "incurables" program at www.herbdoc.com
a nutritional, herb and detox program designed for persons who are terminally ill.

Another thought is the Gerson Institute. Google it.

I have personally known 2 people cured of terminal cancer using these methods.

My thoughts and prayers are with him.
