Five or so years ago, my prayer partners and I prayed for the life of one of a set of twins.  Ellie was born, it seemed, very prematurely.  Her sister Mollie, though, was quite ready.  Ellie lives and is a blessing to those who have her in their lives.  God’s purpose if always amazing to me.

Glorious God,

Only you could have kept Ellie alive.  Only you know the depths of our hearts and souls.  Only you fully understand our best and our worst, our most beautiful and our ugliest thoughts and emotions.  Amazing!

Lord of Light,

I bring Thea to you this morning.  Thank you for her healing to date.  We are thrilled that she is doing so well.  I pray for her continued health, Lord.  If you would keep the cancer out of her body for at least a few more years, I’d be very grateful.  Of course, you’re in charge, so I’ll go with whatever happens.I bring Susan, to you this morning.  And her daughter, Sarah, and her son, Aaron.  I bring also Matt, Susan’s fiancé, and his daughter, Kelly (ie?), and his son, whose name I don’t know.  I know you can heal the anger, the sadness, the sense of hopelessness in each of them, Lord.  I pray you will hit Aaron & Kelly with your heavenly 2×4 to knock a bit of sense into them.  Show them their anger

hate to lovehas no good purpose.  Help them to know that with you, they have the ability to get over it.  Show them the reason to replace the anger with happiness that Matt & Susan love one another.  Over time, give them the tools and reasons to become one large family, filled with love and happiness.  And a job for Sarah would be a tremendous thing, too.  Give her the energy to try.  Surround her with people who bring your love.  Thank you for the inspiration to contact our CCoB “Colorado Chapter”.  Today, I will send a note to Diane and Paula to ask them to pray for Sarah and see if they have any thoughts.

God Almighty,

You’re amazing.  As I sit here praying, you give me that inspiration and I know it’s from  you! I am gleeful.  I am grateful.  Thank you, Lord. I just love you so much!

In Jesus’ name,


To God be the glory!
